Haryana, along with Maharashtra, is going on polls on October 21.
Haryana Assembly Election: Just days ahead of the Assembly polls in Haryana, BJP president Amit Shah on Wednesday urged voters to vote for the saffron party and make Manohar Lal Khattar as the state chief minister once again. He also asked voters to press the lotus symbol in EVMs so hard that the current is felt in Italy.
“Will you make PM Modi’s hands stronger? Will you make Manohar Lal ji CM again? Will you press the button with lotus symbol? Press the lotus button so hard that it is pressed in Gurugram but the current is felt in Italy”, he was quoted as saying at an election rally in Gurugram.
Haryana, along with Maharashtra, is going on polls on October 21. Results of both states will be announced on October 24.
Addressing the rally Shah said, “Earlier, governments used to feel scared of touching Article 370, but the Modi government decided to abrogate it. It is becuase of Article 370, that terrorism increased, Kashmir remained less developed and people of the country felt, they were only half connected with Kashmir”.
After removing Article 370, the Modi government destroyed the Pakistan sponsored terrorism from the country, he added further. Shah further said that only three families ruled Jammu and Kashmir and that elected Panchayat leaders were notable to work properly.
