Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi should explain Congress stand on Gupkar declaration, says Amit Shah | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Asserting that Jammu and Kashmir has been, is and will always remain an integral part of India, home minister Amit Shah on Tuesday said Congress and the Gupkar Gang want to take Jammu and Kashmir back to the era of terror and turmoil. Shah cited Gupkar alliance leaders’ remarks to seek international help to restore Article 370 and sought an answer from Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to explain if they supported them.
The BJP has been targeting the Congress in its bid to corner the opposition party ever since the latter decided to join the Gupkar alliance to contest local body polls in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The Gupkar gang is going global. They want foreign forces to intervene in Jammu and Kashmir. The Gupkar Gang also insults India’s Tricolour. Do Sonia Ji and Rahul Ji support such moves of the Gupkar Gang? They should make their stand crystal clear to the people of India,” Shah said in a series of tweets.
He said Indian people will no longer tolerate an unholy ‘global gathbandhan’ against our national interest. “Either the Gupkar Gang swims along with the national mood or else the people will sink it,” Shah said.
The home minister has been actively involved in the affairs of the Union Territory and has been a strong advocate to hold the local body polls. The Modi government has taken several measures to empower the local bodies as even funds are being transferred directly to the panchayat heads and the municipal bodies.
Shah alleged that the Congress and the Gupkar Gang want to take Jammu and Kashmir back to the era of terror and turmoil.
“They want to take away rights of dalits, women and tribals that we have ensured by removing Article 370. This is why they’re being rejected by the people everywhere,” he said.
Law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Monday had given a detailed account of how measures taken after abrogation of article 370 are empowering all sections of society in the Union Territory. As several laws like anti divorce, child marriages act were not applicable in Jammu and Kashmir when Article 370 was effective, Prasad had asked the Congress to explain if it wants that people of the state should be denied the benefits of the laws.
