Udupi, Sep 22: Public awareness program about the abrogation of article 370 was held by Udupi district BJP on Saturday, September 21 in Manipal.

D V Sadananda Gowda, minister for fertilizer was the chief guest for the function, addressing the gathering he said “Before all the promises done during the election time were not fulfilled by the elected government. But for the first time, the Modi government has fulfilled its promises. After the abrogation of Article 370, not a single gunshot has been fired in Jammu and Kashmir. At the time of its implementation, Dr B R Ambedkar and Sardar Vallabhabhai Patel had opposed to giving special status to Jammu and Kashmir. But Jawaharlal Nehru, the then prime minister kept both of them away from the process and implemented Article 370. At its inception, it was said that it is just for a temporary basis. Congress from its first election itself carried elections on hate politics and divide and rule. People supported Congress for a single reason that it had brought them freedom. Modi has given corruption-free governance. Neither he nor his ministers are facing any corruption charges”.

“The political families of Jammu and Kashmir used to receive all the aid from the central government and used it for their goodwill. Integrity, the solidarity of the nation is the prime objective of BJP. By abolishing Article 370 and 35(a) Modi has brought to leverage the separatist movements happening in the country. Development is the medicine for terrorism. Jammu and Kashmir themselves faced losses from Article 370. Even Congress leaders like P Chidambaram, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Kashmir political leader Karan Singh have appreciated our move regarding Article 370” he added.

“Due to some strict measures taken by the government, we are facing an economic slowdown. But after the reduction in corporate taxes and some other measures declared recently Nifty raised 2,000 points. In the next 3 months we will surely return to normalcy," Gowda said.

Tejaswini, Vidhana Parishad member delivered the keynote address. In her address, she said “I have personally interviewed all the separatist leaders of Jammu and Kashmir. Rahul Gandhi says for them the people are more important than the land. But for BJP both the land and the people are important. For them the people who play with the soldier's life are important but for BJP, Kashmir is the crown of India. For 500 years Mughals attacked Kashmir. India is the only Hindu nation, Pakistanis themselves left India. Hindu Maha Sabha had extended political support to Congress for which it demanded not to divide the nation. After 1988, Kashmir is facing bad days, we are following the principles of Gandhiji but Congress is misusing the Mahatma's name. Congress discusses the principles of Gandhi sitting in five-star hotels."

Kota Srinivas Poojary on the occasion said, "RSS and BJP from the beginning had stressed upon the abolition of special status given to Jammu and Kashmir. When elections in Kashmir happened BJP supported the coalition. But, Amit Shah and Narendra Modi knew that when we should get back our support extended to the abolition of Article 370. It was a long term plan and the stage was prepared for the same a long ago."

Raghupathi Bhat, Udupi MLA Sunil Kumar, Karkala MLA Lalaji R Mendon, Kaup MLA B Sukumar Shetty, Byndoor MLA Mattar Rathnakar Hegde, President Udupi district BJP Uday Kumar Shetty Dinakar Babu Sheela K Shetty and others were present on the occasion.
