Union Minister Amit Shah meets Jagmohan, former J&K governor and saviour of Kashmiri Pandits following abrogation of Article 370

Home Minister Amit Shah took the nation by surprise on August 5, when he announced that the Union government had arrived at the historic decision to abrogate Article 370 granting special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Home Minister and BJP party chief Amit Shah along with working president JP Nadda on Tuesday met former Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) governor Jagmohan Malhotra in the course of BJP’s ‘Sampark Abhiyan’ which is undertaken to connect with prominent society members on the government of India’s landmark decision to abrogate Article 370.

Jagmohan (91) was the governor of J&K when the Kashmiri Pandit community suffered ethnic cleansing at the hands of Islamic fundamentalists and were forced to flee their homes in 1990. He is fondly known as the ‘saviour of Kashmiri Pandits’ for his timely intervention to save the lives of lakhs of KPs, who would otherwise have been wiped out by armed militants in the valley. Later, he also served in the cabinet of Atal Bihar Vajpayee government.

Home Minister Amit Shah took the nation by surprise on August 5, when he announced that the Union government had arrived at the historic decision to abrogate Article 370 granting special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir. While common Indians and some opposition leaders including Mayawati have the government’s stand, certain elements have been trying to disrupt the peace process by resorting to fake news, in line with Pakistan agenda.

Shah and Nadda were accompanied by Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan to the meeting. The BJP has commenced its month-long public awareness campaign to spread awareness about the Centre’s bold decision to abrogate Article 370 in J&K, leading to its bifurcation into two union territories of J&K and Ladakh. As a part of this campaign, BJP is slated to rope in 2,000 prominent personalities and organise large scale meetings across 35 major cities within the country.
