Mumbai, Oct 12 : Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday said that national security is 'Rashtraneeti' and development of every needy is 'Rashtradharma' of the Modi Government.
Mr Naqvi was here for election campaign for Shiv Sena candidate Ramesh Latke from Andheri East. Interacting with intellectuals, entrepreneurs, doctors, businessmen and other prominent people of the society in Mumbai, Mr Naqvi said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi is working with the nationalistic approach of "Sardar Patel" and commitment of Mahatma Gandhi to the development of all.
He further said that the PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister and BJP national president Amit Shah have fulfilled the dream of "Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat". By removing 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, the Modi Government has cleared the path to resolve 370 problems of Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh.
Mr Naqvi said that the separatists and terrorists had converted Kashmir, which had been called “Heaven on Earth”into "Hell of Terror" by using the shield of 370. Article 370 which was a temporary arrangement, was portrayed as a “constitutional compulsion” by some “Satta Ke Thekedar” for the last 70 years. They exploited the people of the state.
The “Jugalbandi” of politicians and separatists played with the sentiments of the innocent people and kept pushing them into the “quagmire of poverty, illiteracy, unemployment”. Because of 370, anti-corruption legislations and actions were not allowed to apply in the state. Mr Naqvi said that but scrapping of 370 will clear the way for overall development of Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh. Now, Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh will also become a part of mainstream development.(UNI)
