Kharge’s slip of the tongue exposed Modi-Shah’s gameplan on Article 371: Jairam Ramesh

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has claimed that Home Minister Amit Shah got “agitated” as Mallikarjun Kharge inadvertently “exposed the Modi-Shah gameplan” to change Article 371 related to Nagaland.

“Amit Shah got very excited and agitated because Khargeji inadvertently exposed Modi-Shah’s gameplan on Article 371; Now that they have taken Article 370 out of the way,” Ramesh said in a post on X.

Earlier, while addressing a gathering in Jaipur, Rajasthan on Saturday, the Congress leader had mistakenly said that ‘Modi takes the credit for abolishing Article 371.’ Later, Shah criticized him for his “terrible mistake”.

Ramesh also gave clarification on the statement of party president Kharge.

Ramesh stressed that, although Kharge’s mistake may have created confusion, the focus should be on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who “really wants to change” the various articles.

“Amit Shah immediately pounced on the Congress president. But the truth is that Modi actually wants to change Article 371-A related to Nagaland, Article 371-B related to Assam, Article 371-C related to Manipur, Article 371-F related to Sikkim, Article 371-G related to Mizoram. Are. , and Article 371-H related to Arunachal Pradesh,” Ramesh added in his tweet.

Ramesh further said, “Incidentally, @Kharge ji was the only person responsible for Article 371-J relating to the erstwhile Hyderabad-Karnataka region – which he abolished only after Dr. Manmohan Singh became Prime Minister.”

Earlier on Saturday, Amit Shah had shared a video on his X account in which Mallikarjun Kharge had said, “They (BJP) are coming here and saying that they have removed 371. What does this have to do with the people here? It is fine if you go and speak about it in Jammu and Kashmir.

“And for the information of Congress, it was not Article 371, but Article 370, which was abrogated by the Modi government. However, Congress is to be expected to make such terrible mistakes. “Such mistakes have been troubling our country for decades,” Shah said.

Shah also criticized the Congress over its national president Kharge’s remarks at a rally and said the “Italian culture” of the Congress party was mostly to blame for not understanding the idea of India.
