Doob maro: Modi tells Opposition over stance on Article 370

Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday slammed Opposition leaders seeking a link between the abrogation of Article 370 and the Maharashtra Assembly polls, and told them to go drown (doob maro) for their stance.

Modi made the acerbic remarks in Akola district of Vidarbha region during a campaign rally for the October 21 Maharashtra Assembly elections.

“How can they (Opposition) say that Jammu and Kashmir has nothing to do with Maharashtra? They should be ashamed of such thoughts. Don’t they have any shame? Doob maro,” he said, using the two-word phrase in Hindi.

Modi lambasted the Congress and NCP chief Sharad Pawar, who had accused the ruling BJP of “diverting attention from its failures by harping on Article 370 abrogation.”

“A shameless Opposition is asking what is the connection between Article 370 and Maharashtra. We are proud of the children of Maharashtra who sacrificed everything for Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.

Modi said he was shocked that such voices are being raised for political gains in the land of Shivaji Maharaj.

Pawar had said on Tuesday that the BJP does not have anything concrete to show and so was harping on abrogation of Article 370. “If you question them about farmers’ suicides, unemployment, closure of industries, the BJP responds with Article 370,” the NCP leader had said.

Modi, who also addressed poll rallies in Jalna and Raigad districts later, said the Congress now is not the same party that fought for Independence.

“The (Congress) party is taking its last breath. It sees ‘rashtra bhakti’ (nationalism) in ‘parivar bhakti’ (devotion to a family),” he said without taking any names.
