Rahul Gandhi playing in the snow
BJP National General Secretary Tarun Chugh recently unfurled the national flag in the national capital in memory of people, who sacrificed their lives for the unity and integrity of the country. Addressing a massive gathering at the event, Chugh said that Modi’s efforts have made it possible for Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to enjoy snowfall in the Kashmir valley.
The BJP leader stated that it has been a saga of sacrifices that have brought us to this stage where Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s message of progress and development has started echoing again. He questioned why it took 70 years for Congress and its leaders like Rahul Gandhi to hoist the national flag at the Lal Chowk in Srinagar. Source NDTV.

“Modi’s zero tolerance for terrorism has made it possible for Rahul and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to enjoy snowfall in the Kashmir valley,” Chugh said.
The BJP National General Secretary was accompanied by former Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh, Jammu and Kashmir BJP Vice-President Sham Lal Sharma, senior BJP leader Devender Singh Rana, Daljit Singh Chib, and other party leaders in presence of representatives of social organizations and prominent locals.
J&K with a long history of struggle
The BJP leader added that Jammu and Kashmir has a long history of struggle and movement. The pages of history are full of repudiation, temperance, and sacrifice.
“When Sheikh Abdullah enforced the permit system to enter Jammu and Kashmir, the Praja Parishad raised the slogan — ‘Desh mein do pradhan, do vidhan, do nishan: nahi chalenge, nahi chalenge’.”
“On January 11, 1953, two days before Lohri, the police opened fire on a procession in which more than 5,000 people were participating. More than 200 rounds were fired in which two people were killed and more than 70 were injured. On January 31, 1953, a huge crowd of protesting farmers gathered in Jyodia village. The farmers came out in huge numbers towards Jammu carrying the tricolor in their hands. The police opened fire on the provokers, in which seven people were killed, to salute whose sacrifice and spirit we all have gathered here,” Chugh added.
Chugh criticized Rahul Gandhi for his party’s delay of 70 long years in hoisting the Tiranga at the Lal Chowk and said that Rahul Gandhi should be thankful to the Modi-led BJP government that he could enter Jammu and Kashmir without a permit and hoist the Tiranga at the Lal Chowk without any issue.
