New Delhi: With Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government marking 100 days in office in its second term after a landslide victory in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Union home minister Amit Shah on Sunday said in the brief period since assuming charge, the Centre has introduced landmark changes in governance.

The monsoon session of Parliament, which concluded in August, witnessed the passage of key bills on internal security, such as the National Investigation Agency (Amendment) Act, and the Unlawful Activities Prevention (Amendment) Act, which gave more teeth to India’s agencies investigating terror charges against groups or individuals.

At the same time, the Parliament also gave its nod to the scrapping of special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Constitution, while also clearing the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, which seeks to bifurcate the state into two Union territories of Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir.

Congratulating the Modi government, Shah took to Twitter to say that the government was “synonymous with national security, development and welfare of the poor. It is a symbol of hope for every section of our society. Within 100 days of Modi 2.0, PM Narendra Modi has taken several historic decisions, for which every Indian had been waiting since 70 years."

Shah also said the Centre has worked towards abolishing the practice of instant Triple Talaq, empowering Muslim women.

“Whether it was the decision to remove Article 370 & 35A from J&K or to free Muslim women from the curse of Triple Talaq or strengthening nation’s security apparatus by amending the UAPA Act...All these historic decisions are a result of PM Modi’s decisive leadership. I congratulate PM Narendra Modi ji and all my ministerial colleagues on the completion of the historic 100 days of Modi 2.0. I also assure all our countrymen that Modi government will leave no stone unturned for the development, welfare and security of our nation," Shah said.
