Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launched a blistering attack at the Opposition and former ruling parties of Jammu and Kashmir claiming they nurtured problems in Jammu and Kashmir while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) freed the Valley from 70 years of misrule. He also highlighted the importance of youth in making a new India and urged them to work together for the development of the country.
While addressing a National Cadet Corps (NCC) rally in Delhi, PM Modi said that nothing was done in the last 70 years to solve the problems of Kashmir. The 3-4 families that ruled Kashmir for 70 years did not work toward solving these problems but towards nurturing them, he added.
The result of all the misrule in the Valley led to terrorism in which thousands of innocents died over the years; people were forced to even migrate from Kashmir, said PM Modi.
He also slammed Pakistan for fighting proxy wars against India for decades which have claimed lives of thousands of civilians and jawans. Before recalling that Pakistan has lost three wars against India, PM Modi asserted that India's armed forces need less than 10-12 days to defeat the neighbouring country.
