Amit Shah, the Home Minister of India, on the 10th of October, took a dig at the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Indian National Congress (INC) in Maharashtra.
While addressing a public rally in Jat of Sangli district, Maharashtra, Amit Shah said, “When Prime Minister Modi brought the proposal to abrogate Article 370, both Congress (INC) and NCP were against it and were revolting against it. I want Rahul Gandhi and Sharad Pawar to answer to the people of Maharashtra why they were against the removal of Article 370.”
He further criticised Rahul Gandhi for his ‘bloodbath’ remarks and said, “Rahul Gandhi said that ‘Kashmir me Khoon ki nadiya beh jayengi,’ but no bullet had to be fired.”
Highlighting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent address at the United Nations, Shah said the entire world supports PM Modi for the decision of revoking Article 370, unlike the opposition parties and Pakistan. Shah said, “Prime Minister Modi recently returned from the UN, and the entire world is standing by his decision to abrogate Article 370. On the other hand, Pakistan stands alone in a corner.”
Amit Shah further appreciated the decision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and praised the growth of India in terms of national security.
The rally was organised in view of the upcoming Maharashtra Assembly elections for 288 seats.
The Maharashtra Assembly elections are scheduled to be held on the 21st of October. The results of the elections will be announced on the 24th of October.
The major parties contesting the Maharashtra Assembly elections are the NCP, the INC and the BJP.
