Ellenabad, October 19

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday targeted the Congress, alleging that their wrong policies had destroyed the nation and injustice was continuously done with Jammu and Kashmir.

Addressing a gathering here on the last day of campaigning, Modi targeted the party on Article 370, saying it was a temporary provision, but for 70 years the Congress did nothing about it.

“I ended this temporary provision. When you made me permanent for five years, why would I allow this temporary thing,” he asked.

The Prime Minister said four lakh Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes in the Valley.

He also targeted the Congress on the Kartarpur Corridor issue, saying that for 70 years the devotees had to seek ‘darshan’ of the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara using binoculars.

He said the inability to bring the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara into the Indian territory during Partition was a mistake. PTI
