It has been two years, 4 months and 6 days because it was revoked, however solely yesterday two courageous policemen misplaced their lives in Bandipora. If Article 370 was the essential motive for the gun, then why is there mourning within the houses of the 2 policemen,” he stated.

I need to hear from the BJP leaders that by beginning the bus service, Vajpayee had put the nation at risk,” he stated.

He stated if Vajpayee was not improper, then the choice to cease the bus service was improper after which the BJP has “cheated” the folks of Jammu and Kashmir.

“Then taking away this confidence-building measure was your mistake. Was the creation of infrastructure at Salamabad for cross-LoC commerce improper then? You say that some folks used it for wrongdoings. The place do not folks make errors? Is there no evasion within the GST or revenue tax? Will you then cease the entire tax system?

“Energy theft is there generally, does that imply the ability provide be reduce for everybody. If an apple is rotten, you don’t throw away the entire carton, you throw away that apple solely,” he stated.
