While addressing a gathering in Hyderabad on Article 370's abrogation, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National General Secretary Ram Madhav said, “Not every Kashmiri is anti-national, not every Kashmiri is a separatist. He's like you and me. We did it (Article 370's abrogation) because we wanted to give development rights, political rights and right to dignified living to all people of J&K”. He further added, “Now Jammu & Kashmir has become an integral part of India. It's like any other state in the country. Two union territories have been created. Ladakhis are very happy, they're rejoicing as it had been a long pending demand for them”. “In Jammu & Kashmir, Jammu region is happy that they have been finally able to fully integrate with the rest of the country. There are issues in Kashmir valley. They'll be taken care of, they'll be dealt with utmost sensitivity”, concluded Madhav.
