Hailakandi: The karyakartas of the Hailakandi unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on August 5th, 2019 erupted in joy after the Centre proposed to scrap Article 370 of the Indian Constitution which gives special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The unit hailed Modi government’s historic move to make Jammu and Kashmir a Union Territory and Ladakh a separate Union Territory. The party members and workers distributed sweets and burst crackers to celebrate the ‘historic day’. The jubilant workers were also seen dancing to the beats of dhol after the abrogation of Article 370.
“It’s a historic day. The BJP had promised to scrap this Article if voted to power and today it fulfilled its promise. The dream of the founding leader of the party, Syama Prasad Mukherjee finally came true today”, said Mission Ranjan Das, BJP leader and former MLA South Karimganj.
