Amit Shah’s top quotes in Lok Sabha today

-While speaking on the debate on one of the bills, Amit Shah said, “Two mistakes that happened due to the decision of (former PM) Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru due to which Kashmir had to suffer for many years. The first is to declare a ceasefire – when our army was winning, the ceasefire was imposed. If there had been a ceasefire after three days, PoK would have been a part of India today. The second is to take our internal issue to the UN.

-Talking about one of the bills, Amit Shah said that the JK bill would give representation in the assembly to those who had to leave Kashmir due to terrorism.

-One of two bills on Jammu and Kashmir seeks to nominate two Kashmiri Migrant community members, including a woman, to assembly, he added.

-Apart from calling out past governments of the Congress for failing to maintain peace in Jammu and Kashmir, he also criticized the party on other fronts as well. “Congress has done the greatest harm to Other Backward Classes: Amit Shah in Lok Sabha,” Shah said while giving credit to PM Narendra Modi for the recent welfare work done for the backward classes.

-Talking about the economic boost in Kashmir after the abrogation of Article-370, Amit Shah highlighted the boom of the entertainment industry in the region.

“The first theatre was made in multiplex in 2021 after the abrogation of Article 370. Over 100 films are being shot in the valley and the bank loan proposals for over 100 movie theatres are under process,” he said.

– Comparing the situation of terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir during the Congress government, Amit Shah highlighted the massive reduction of incidents of stone pelting between 2004-2014 and 2014-2023. He also called ‘Article-370 as the root cause of terrorism.”
