Ahmedabad: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday said people should watch the “The Kashmir Files” to learn how atrocities and terror gripped the Kashmir Valley “during Congress rule”, speaking about the film that depicts events that began when a BJP-backed government was in power at the centre.
“Those who have not watched it must watch the movie to learn how atrocities and terror gripped Kashmir during Congress rule,” the senior BJP leader said while speaking at a program in Ahmedabad.
“When you made Narendra bhai (Narendra Modi) prime minister for a second time, he removed Article 370 on August 5, 2019. The moment Narendra bhai decided to do that, people across the country realised that if a leader with strong willpower like Narendra bhai leads the country, nothing is impossible,” he added.
આ સાથે અમદાવાદ મ્યુનિસિપલ કોર્પોરેશન દ્વારા નવનિર્મિત ઈકોલોજી પાર્ક જાહેર જનતાને અર્પણ કરી પાર્કમાં વૃક્ષારોપણ પણ કરવામાં આવ્યું હતું.
આ પાર્કના વિકાસથી આસપાસના વિસ્તારના વાયુ પ્રદૂષણને નિયંત્રિત કરવામાં મદદ મળશે તેમજ વિસ્તારના રહેવાસીઓના આરોગ્ય અને સુખાકારીમાં વધારો થશે. pic.twitter.com/FIQIaHUJSM

“The Kashmir Files”, directed by Vivek Agnihotri, revolves around the forced exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from their native state after Pakistan-backed militants targeted the community in the early 1990s. While it has also sparked off a debate about the way the tragedy of Kashmir Pandits has been depicted in the film, some BJP-ruled states have exempted it from entertainment tax.
Speaking at another programme in Gandhinagar earlier in the day, he said the BJP’s “massive” victory in Assembly elections in four states was a testimony to the acceptance of policies and projects undertaken by Modi to make India “safe, prosperous and powerful.” “And in all these four states, Congress is finished, it is nowhere to be seen. The massive victory reflects the trust that the people of India have in the leadership of Narendra bhai,” he said.
The Union minister laid foundation stones for projects worth ₹ 367 crore including those under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana in Gandhinagar, his Lok Sabha constituency.
