Mumbai, 12th Oct, 2019: My press release during campaigning in support of NDA candidate in Maharashtra Assembly elections in Mumbai today:

 Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said here that national security is "Rashtraniti” and development of every needy is “Rashtradharma” of the Modi Government.

While interacting with intellectuals, entrepreneurs, doctors, businessmen and other prominent people of the society in Mumbai during election campaigning in favour of Shiv Sena candidate Shri Ramesh Latke from Andheri East, Shri Naqvi said that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is working with the nationalistic approach of "Sardar Patel" and commitment of Mahatma Gandhi to the development of all.

Shri Naqvi said that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and Home Minister and BJP national president Shri Amit Shah have fulfilled the dream of "Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat". By removing 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, the Modi Government has cleared the path to resolve 370 problems of Jammu, Kashmir, Laddakh.

Shri Naqvi said that the separatists and terrorists had converted Kashmir, which had been called “Heaven on Earth”, into "Hell of Terror" by using the shield of 370. Article 370 which was a temporary arrangement, was portrayed as a “constitutional compulsion” by some “Satta Ke Thekedar” for the last 70 years. They exploited the people of the state. The “Jugalbandi” of politicians and separatists played with the sentiments of the innocent people and kept pushing them into the “quagmire of poverty, illiteracy, unemployment”. Because of 370, anti-corruption legislations and actions were not allowed to apply in the state.

Shri Naqvi said that but scrapping of 370 will clear the way for overall development of Jammu, Kashmir, Laddakh. Now, Jammu, Kashmir and Laddakh will also become a part of mainstream development.

Shri Naqvi said that the Modi Government has broken the back bone of terrorism. Earlier, there were bomb blasts and terror attacks in one or other parts of the country in which hundreds of innocent people were killed. But due to the strong will of the Modi Government, the terrorists have not been able to succeed in their evil design.

Shri Naqvi said that the Modi Government has given new dimensions to national security. Now India kills the enemies of the country in their own house. After the surgical strike, Balakot strike, India’s presitige has increased significantly worldwide.

Shri Naqvi said that the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Amendment Bill, 2019 is another strong attack of the Modi Government against terrorism.

Shri Naqvi said that under the leadership of Chief Minister Shri Devendra Fadnavis, Maharashtra is moving fast on the path of development. Every scheme of the BJP Government in the state is dedicated to the interests of the poor and needy.

Shri Naqvi said that by eliminating the corruption and misrule of previous governments, the Government led by Shri Devendra Fadnavis has established good governance and transparent system which has benefited every section of the society. The people of the state will once again bring the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance with an absolute majority so that the state's development vehicle continues to move forward.
