Union minister Nitin Gadkari said today that the Independence Day will be celebrated with “much more enthusiasm” this time because of the Centre’s decision to revoke Jammu and Kashmir’s special status.
With its Kashmir decision, the government has given a strong reply to terrorists and “Pakistan’s infiltration activities” in the valley, Mr Gadkari said at an event in Nagpur.
“By revoking Article 370, we have strongly retaliated to the infiltration activities of Pakistan in Kashmir. The dreams of all Indians are fulfilled in the real sense today,” he said.
Mr Gadkari said, “There is peace in Kashmir and in a way, terrorists have got a strong reply from India. And in this backdrop, the Independence Day tomorrow will be celebrated with more enthusiasm.”
The senior BJP leader said everyone should resolve to fulfill the dream of ”Akhandh Bharat” (undivided India).
