Fate of Jammu & Kashmir will change during PM Modi's regime, says Rajnath Singh
The fate and picture of Jammu and Kashmir will change in the years to come under PM Modi's leadership, said defence minister Rajnath Singh said while addressing the 'Jammu and Kashmir Jan Samvad rally' via video conference on Sunday.
He further said that soon people of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) will demand that they want to be with India and not under the rule of Pakistan, and the day this happens, a goal of our parliament will also be accomplished, adding that under PM Modi's leadership, Jammu and Kashmir will touch great heights.
Speaking on the change in scenario after the abrogation of article 370, Rajnath said that earlier in Kashmir, protests demanding 'Kashmir azaadi' were held and flags of Pakistan and ISIS were seen, but now we see Indian flags here.
While addressing the rally Singh also paid tribute to Sarpanch Ajay Pandita, who died in a cowardly attack and also Mohd Makbul Sherwani of Baramulla. He said, ''I pay my tribute to Sarpanch Ajay Pandita, who died in a cowardly attack and also Mohd Makbul Sherwani of Baramulla, who in 1947 hoisted the Indian flag in Kashmir valley.''
