Expressing displeasure over PDP President Mehbooba Mufti’s recent statement about ending Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, Deputy Chief Minister of Gujarat Nitin Patel said on Monday that if the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir do not like India and its laws, she should move to Pakistan with family.
Addressing a gathering for the by-election in Kurali village in Vadodara, Patel said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah brought Citizenship Amendment Act to protect the country and they abolished the provisions of Article 370.
He said “Mehbooba has been giving an unrestrained statement for the last two days. She should buy air tickets and move to Karachi with her family. It would be fine for everyone.”
“If she wants, people of Karjan taluka would send her money to buy plane tickets,” added Patel launching a scintillating attack on the former ally of the BJP.
The Deputy Chief Minister of Gujrat further added. “Those who do not like India or laws introduced by the government, such as CAA or abrogation of Article 370, should go to Pakistan. Anyone who is not feeling safe or happy should immediately move to Pakistan.”
The Deputy Chief Minister was addressing the rally in support of BJP candidate Akshay Patel from Curzon Assembly seat. The Kurzon Assembly is one of the eight assembly elections to be held on November 3 by-election.
Patel said that if you stay here then you will have to face action. Anyone who makes a mistake will have to face action. We do not want trouble makers, whatever their caste and religion. He said that the security of India and its citizens is a top priority for the Bhartiya Janata Party.
It is to be noted that Mehbooba Mufti, who was released after 14 months, said in the past “I will not raise any flag other than Jammu and Kashmir. “
Mehbooba Mufti said “when our flag comes back, we will pick up that flag as well. But until our own flag is returned, we will not carry any other flag in our hands. “
Mehbooba was in custody since most of the provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution granting special status to Jammu and Kashmir were abolished in August last year. Talking to the media for the first time after his release, she said that she was not interested in contesting the election personally until the former state flag and the constitution was restored. At the same time, a shoe was thrown on Deputy CM Nitin Patel who went to the campaign for the by-election to be held in Karjan seat of Vadodara district on Monday. Deputy CM Nitin Patel was talking to the media after finishing his talk from the stage that then the shoe was thrown at him. It is being told that at that time, taking advantage of the darkness, someone threw a shoe at Nitin Patel. Although who threw this shoe, no one is aware of it. The Vadodara police are searching for the man who threw a shoe at the deputy CM.
