Speaking about the abrogation of Article 370, PM asked the gathering to give standing ovation to the parliamentarians for taking such a decisive strong action. He said that Article 370 had kept people of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) and Ladakh away from development and progress. “Now people of J&K and Ladakh have the same rights as every Indian,” PM Modi said.
