Article 370 only temporary, says Amit Shah

65


New Delhi:Amit Shah today said our stance on Jammu and Kashmir has and will remain constant. There has been no change in our position on Article 370. We have always maintained that Article 370 is only a temporary provision in our Constitution.

“We are committed to protect the Kashmiri culture,” Home Minister Amit Shah said, adding that opposing India does not fall in the ambit of Kashmiriyat. “Those who want to separate Jammu and Kashmir from India must have fear in their minds,” Shah said.

Home Minister Amit Shah insists that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India. He stresses on India’s zero tolerance towards terror. He says that after Narendra Modi conducted the air strikes over Pakistan, nobody in the world said that it was a fluke. He was after all protecting our country, said Shah.

“Our ideology is to ensure protection of borders and make country free of terrorism. The govt. has spent Rs 2307 crore to upgrade security apparatus in Jammu and Kashmir. So far Art 356 (President’s Rule) was imposed 132 times of which Congress used it 93 times,” Shah said.

“We will target root of terrorism not only on our land but also inside Pakistan,” Shah said.
