PM Narendra Modi opened up about the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and its impact on the union territory.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said Article 370 was the “agenda of 4-5 families” in Jammu and Kashmir, taking a veiled jibe at the Opposition.

“Article 370 was the agenda of only 4-5 families, it was neither the agenda of the people of Kashmir nor the agenda of the people of the country. For their benefit, they had built such a wall of 370 and used to say that if 370 is removed, there will be a fire,” Modi said in theinterview.

“Today, it has become true that after the removal of 370, there is a feeling of more unity. The feeling of belongingness is increasing among the people of Kashmir and hence its direct result is also visible in elections, tourism…” he added.
