On Wednesday, Bhartiya Janta Party president Amit Shah, during a public meeting in Tasgaon said, Kashmir is an integral part of India and it would continue to remain so as long as the BJP exists. Mr. Shah’s remarks came at a poll rally, in response to National Conference leader Omar Abdullah’s recent suggestion of having a separate Prime Minister for Kashmir.
“No one can take away Kashmir from us. As long as the BJP exists, Kashmir will continue to be an integral part of India,” Shah told the rally in western Maharashtra. “We will never allow two prime ministers in India,” Shah said. The Congress wants to separate Kashmir from India, he added.
"Omar Abdullah has suggested appointing a separate prime minister for Kashmir. Is it possible to have two PMs in a country? Can there be a second PM in Kashmir? Rahul Baba (Gandhi) is silent on his poll ally Abdullah's suggestion (separate PM for Kashmir)...He has not uttered a word," Shah told an election rally here.
“India is the land of Shivaji Maharaj and its security is the responsibility of us all,” Shah said. Referring to cross-border militancy emanating from Pakistan, Shah said,” If there is a goli (bullet) from there, India will send a gola (bomb) from here.” Militants infiltrating in India will be searched and killed, he said.
