BJP Will Scrap Article 370 Once It Gets Majority In Parliament: Shah

DHARAMPUR — BJP president Amit Shah said Friday that his party would abrogate Article 370 of the Constitution which gives a special status to Jammu and Kashmir after getting a majority in both houses of Parliament.

Speaking at a poll rally at Dharampur in Gujarat’s Valsad district, he also said the main issue in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections was national security.

“We have already said in our manifesto that we will repeal Article 370 once we get majority in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha so that Kashmir becomes integral part of India permanently,” said Shah.
At present, the BJP does not enjoy a majority in the Upper House of Parliament.

Shah was here to campaign for Dr K C Patel, BJP MP and candidate from Valsad. All 26 Lok Sabha seats in Gujarat will go to the polls on April 23.

“This fight is not just about development. There is no doubt development took place under Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The issue this time is national security and only Modi and the BJP can provide that,” he said.

“Only Modi can make India a superpower,” he added.
