Patna: Union defence minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday addressed the ‘Jan Jagran Sabha (public awareness meet) in Patna to create awareness among the people about the abrogation of the provisions of Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir.

Addressing the meet organized by the state unit of the BJP in Patna’s Sri Krishna Memorial Hall, he said that “Article 370 was like cancer. More than three- fourths of Jammu & Kashmir’s population wanted us to remove Article 370 from the state. We have fulfilled people’s dream and now I assure you that if talks are held with Pakistan, it will be only on the issue of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK)”.

 

He also warned Pakistan against “repeating the mistakes of 1965 and 1971” and said that “the country will be destroyed if they attempt anything against India. Everyone is aware that Pakistan produces terrorists and has been calling them freedom fighters but I assure you that none of them will return if they enter our country”. He also used the occasion to hit out at the opposition parties for raising questions on the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370.
