8 things Modi said in Jammu rally

8 things Modi said in Jammu rally1Admiring the huge turnout of public to attend his rally Modi remembered his early days in BJP when he worked in Jammu and got a chance to interact with the people there. "I have worked in Jammu extensively. No leader has had the honour to witness such a sight like today," Modi started his address with these lines.
2Modi also remembered Jammu & Kashmir's last ruler Maharaja Hari Singh and founder of Jan Sangh Shyama Prasad Mookherjee and attacked the Congress and former PM Jawaharlal Nehru for weak policies over Kashmir. "I remember Maharaja Hari Singh ji today. If he was in mainstream of decision making after 1947 things would be different. I remember SP Mookherjee. I ask all political pundits, was Pandit Nehru or Mookherjee right about Kashmir? History was proven SP Mookerjee right," he said.
3Attacking the UPA Government for bad governance, incumbent corruption and its inability to tackle Pakistan sponsored terrorism, Modi said, "Government in Delhi is sleeping but they are in such deep slumber that people's anger cannot wake them. Just like what happened to Sarabjit (Indian prisoner killed in Pakistani jail), Chamel Singh was treated in the same way. If India had raised a voice, Sarabjit may not have died. Is there any Government that will remain sleeping even when their people are getting killed?"
4Lashing out at the Congress over Article 370 and its secularism rides Modi said, "Talk about 'secularism' and it is as if all your sins are washed away. In J&K one thing is added and that is Article 370. Pandit Nehru said with regard to Article 370 - it will get redundant as the time progresses. Is your Government ready to do what Nehru ji said? Article 370 has become like a shield and that is the reason we are not having a proper debate on this."
5Referring to the provision, Modi said that women had not been given equal rights in the State unlike in other parts of the country. "If Omar (Abdullah) married outside Kashmir, his rights of being a citizen remain whereas his sister Sara loses the right for the same. Is this not discrimination against the women in the State," he asked, while referring to the Chief Minister's family.
6Talking about the development of the State under Congress and its allied parties ruling in the State Modi said, "For 60 years they talked about separate State but what did people get? Nothing and there is no accountability also. In the name of separate State, they encouraged separatism. Would have been better if they focussed in creating a super State."
7Asking the people of Jammu & Kashmir to demand for their rights Modi said, "Your rulers have got the habit to go and keep asking things from Delhi, because what is given will not be accounted for. And your leaders are always abroad. They neither like summers nor winters here. Beggar days are over...we now need to move towards better days."
8Speaking over Congress' divisive politics Modi called for communal harmony amongst people of Kashmir and said, "This politics of discrimination must end. Either some region or some community is treated with injustice. Speak in one voice and you will see neither the State nor the Centre can suppress your voice. By fighting with each other we cannot more ahead."
