Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya Tuesday said Article 370 of the Constitution, which gives autonomous status to Jammu and Kashmir, will be scrapped after the BJP returns to power at the Centre.

“Once Narendra Modi becomes the prime minister again, Article 370 will be scrapped,” Maurya told an election meeting in Jalalabad here. He said Modi, in his second term as the prime minister, would “wipe out terrorism”.

On SP leader Azam Khan’s son’s “Anarkali” remark against BJP candidate Jaya Prada, Maurya said the Election Commission has taken note of it and action will be taken against him.
