Asserted that he challenged all political parties in India, especially Congress, to announce that they will bring back Article 370, adding that this country won’t even look at them.

Speaking on Shahpurkandi Dam, he reminded people of J&K how the weak governments of Congress kept the Dam stalled for decades. The fields of the farmers of Jammu were dry and the villages were in darkness, but the water of Ravi was going to Pakistan, he said. Modi had given a guarantee to the farmers and has fulfilled it also, he added.

The Prime Minister emphasised that he thinks far ahead. He said whatever has happened so far is just the trailer. He has to get busy in creating a new and wonderful picture of the new Jammu and Kashmir, PM said. The time is not far when Assembly Elections will be held in Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said that it is the verdict of the Supreme Court, adding that it would have been a favour for us if PM Modi had conducted elections before the verdict of the SC. It is now a compulsion for him, he added. It is the Supreme Court’s verdict to conduct elections in J&K before September 30. As far as statehood is concerned, he could not explain to us till now why was Article 370 removed, Abdullah said.
