Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday said that Article 370 which was protected by the Congress and Samajwadi Party was removed by Narendra Modi in 2019 and Kashmir was made a part of India forever.

On the abrogation of Article 370, he said, “No one dares to explode bombs there.” Amit Shah claimed that in the first five rounds of polling, “BJP has crossed 310” and that the Congress is “not even getting 40 seats” this time.

“INDI alliance has been wiped out in the first five phases. I am telling you, this time Congress is not even getting 40 seats and Akhilesh Yadav will not even get four seats,” said Shah, addressing a poll meeting in Siddharthnagar in support of Domariyaganj BJP candidate Jagdambika Pal.

In another rally in Sant Kabir Nagar, Shah named several leaders from the opposition parties and accused them of nepotism.

“Lalu Prasad Yadav wants to make his son the chief minister, Uddhav Thackeray wants to make his son the chief minister, Sharad Pawar wants to make his daughter the chief minister, Stalin wants to make his son the chief minister, Mamata Banerjee wants to make her nephew the chief minister and Sonia Gandhi wants to make her son Rahul Gandhi the prime minister,” he said, adding, someone who works for his family is not going to work for a constituency.

Shah asserted that the PoK (Pakistan-occupied Kashmir) is a part of India and the BJP will take it back.

“Leaders of Pakistan say that PoK is theirs. Congress leaders also say that they (Pakistan) have an atom bomb. BJP people are not scared of atom bombs. PoK is and will remain part of India and we will take it back,” he said.

He said the opposition was attempting to end reservation for SC/ST and OBC in order to appease their vote bank.

“Rahul Baba and Akhilesh Yadav you have been blinded by vote banks politics. We will finish reservation on the basis of religion and give it back to the ST/ST and OBCs,” he said.

He also pointed out that the INDIA bloc did not have any prime minister face and claimed that the alliance, if it comes to power, will have five PMs. “Can the country run like this?”

Shah alleged that Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav have tickets booked for a vacation abroad once results of the Lok Sabha polls are announced, unlike Narendra Modi who works tirelessly for the nation.

“On the one hand, there is Rahul Gandhi who leaves for Italy, Thailand and Bangkok and on the other hand, there is Narendra Modi who has not taken any leave for 23 years and even spends his Diwali with soldiers on the border,” he said.

Shah said the BJP ensured OROP (One Rank-One Pension) scheme for the retired army personnel and asserted that India will become the third largest economy in the third term of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Shah on Thursday also addressed a poll rally in Khalilabad of Sant Kabir Nagar in support of Praveen Kumar Nishad, who is contesting on a NISHAD party ticket, a partner of NDA.

There, he accused the opposition of stalling the construction of Ram Temple for over 70 years and attributed its construction to Modi.

“This election is between the one who constructed Ram Temple and those who opened fire on Ram Bhakts,” he said.

Shah alleged that in the erstwhile SP government “goonda raj” was rampant in Uttar Pradesh, and it was Yogi Adityanath, the current CM, who set all goons right.

Polling in Domariyaganj and Sant Kabir Nagar will be held in the sixth phase of ongoing Lok Sabha polls on Saturday.
