MUMBAI: Scrapping of special status to Jammu and Kashmir is set to be the highlight of BJP's campaign for Maharashtra assembly election. A glimpse of this was visible on Tuesday when home minister Amit Shah addressed a non-political function in Beed.

“You gave us 300 seats during the recent polls and we have removed Article 370,” Shah told a Dussehra rally organised by state minister Pankaja Gopinath Munde. “Kashmir is our integral part and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has joined Kashmir with our country.”

While the BJP President also spoke of how the government formed the OBC commission to address their issues through the constitutional framework, his thrust was on the abrogation of Article 370.

His party is clearly using the issue to hammer the opposition and reiterate how the ‘courageous’ decision benefits the entire country in the runup to the assembly polls on October 21.

In fact, to welcome Shah at the venue, Munde, daughter of late party leader Gopinath Munde, and her team made a show of how they had brought in 370 national flags and burst 370 crackers at the rally.

The home minister said Modi has tied the entire country together by removing Article 370 and asked every member in the rally to go to people’s houses and spread the message of how the move benefitted them.

“Those who are opposing the abrogation, won’t you ask them, why are you opposing it?” he said.

On Saturday, Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya went to the extent of urging people of Maharashtra to vote for BJP if they wanted a nuclear bomb to fall on Pakistan and on those opposing the abrogation of 370.
