Jharkhand Assembly Polls 2019 | ‘We fulfilled Dr SP Mukherjee’s dream by abrogating Article 370 from J-K’: Rajnath Singh
Pandu | Jagran News Desk: Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday addressed a rally in Jharkhand’s Bishrampur assembly constituency and said that the Modi government has fulfilled the dream of Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee by revoking Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir.
“In 1952, Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee (founder of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, the predecessor to the BJP) had said that there cannot be two Constitutions, two prime ministers and two flags in one country. We have fulfilled his dream and lived up to the promise made in our poll manifesto,” he said.
“Without any delay, we abrogated Article370 in Jammu and Kashmir, when we got clear majority in Parliament. Now there'll not be two Constitutions in India, there'll be no different flag for Jammu and Kashmir. There'll be only one PM in our country,” he added.
Rajnath also spoke about the Supreme Court’s verdict in the Ayodhya land case and said that no power on Earth could get in the way of construction of a ‘grand’ Ram temple in Ayodhya.
“A grand Ram temple will be built in Ayodhya and no power in the world can stop that from happening. The path for construction of the temple has been cleared by the Supreme Court,” said Rajnath amid ‘Jai Shree Ram’ slogans.
The Defence Minister also asserted that the Rafale fighter jets, acquired by the country from France, would destroy terror camps across the border.
