"In Amit Shah's tenure, the highest number of security forces and civilians got killed in Jammu and Kashmir. When he was taking oath in Delhi, 10 people were killed. Today, again, CRPF jawans were killed. Instead of doing his work, he is busy finishing opposition. If he will put all his efforts into eliminating terrorists, then this will be good for the nation," Raut was quoted as saying by ANI.

Raut urged Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and Andhra chief minister Chandrababu Naidu – both key allies of the NDA government in the Centre – to seek Amit Shah's resignation.

“Chief Minister's (Manipur) convoy attacked by Naxals, the country is in danger from Amit Shah who is again home minister in Modi government,” he said. “Nitish Kumar and Chandrababu Naidu must seek Amit Shah's resignation because the government is formed with their support.”

Earlier, Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray had targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.

He had sought to understand the point of abrogating Article 370. The legislation, which granted special status to the region, was revoked on August 5, 2019, less than two months after PM Modi was elected to serve his second successive term.

“Lives are being lost. Who is responsible for the terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir?” Thackeray asked. “I am concerned about the future of the country and not about the future of the NDA government,” he added.
