No Intention of Scrapping Article 371: Amit Shah Assures Northeast

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-02-20

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday assured the people of Northeast that the Modi Government had no intention of scrapping Article 371.

 

Most of the states that have special provisions under Article 371 are in the Northeast. These provisions are aimed at preserving their cultural heritage and customary laws.

 

While addressing a gathering to mark the 34th foundation day of Arunachal Pradesh, Shah said the Northeast was only geographically united with the rest of India before 2014 when Narendra Modi assumed office of the prime minister.

 

"The real emotional integration of the region with the rest of the country happened only under the Modi government," he said.

 

After Article 370 was abrogated in Jammu and Kashmir, there were attempts to "misinform and misguide" the people of the Northeast that Article 371 would be scrapped by the Centre, Amit Shah said.

 

Referring to the problems of militancy and inter-state boundary disputes in the region, the home minister said the Modi government was committed to their resolution.

 

"When we come to seek your votes in 2024, the Northeast will have been free from problems like militancy and inter-state strife," he said.
