'No one has guts…', Amit Shah takes dig at Rahul Gandhi on Article 370

During the Lok Sabha poll campaign, Union Home Minister Amit Shah took a dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti. Shah said the predictions of Mufti and Gandhi on the turmoil in Kashmir have proved to be wrong due to the bold steps taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He said that the Modi government's promise to remove Article 370 received huge backlash from Opposition, especially Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi and PDP chief Mufti. As per Shah, the two leaders had claimed that with the removal of Article 370, there would be turmoil in the union territory but nothing has happened in the past five years, Shah added.

'Congress received electoral bonds, is that also extortion,' asks Amit Shah

"In Kashmir, (Peoples Democratic Party chief) Mehbooba Mufti and (Congress leader) Rahul Baba (Gandhi) used to say there would be bloodbath here once Article 370 is removed...Rahul Baba, five years have passed (since the abrogation of Article 370). This is the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Leave alone the talk of the bloodbath, no one has the guts to throw a stone there," Amit Shah said.

Shah said during a roadshow in Rajasthan's Udaipur.

In August 2019, PM Modi's regime revoked the special status provided to Jammu and Kashmir by Article 370.

Shah on Friday submitted his nomination papers for the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat. He said this general election is all about giving a third term to PM Modi so that he can make India a developed country by 2047.

The Union minister said Modi's third term will be crucial because his first two terms went into correcting the mistakes made by the previous Congress-led UPA government.
