In Udhampur, Shri Modi took on the ruling JKNC, the PDP and the Congress for the misgovernance in Jammu and Kashmir. “Corruption, loot and emotional blackmailing has become a habit here. We decided to ensure that there is no shortage of help being given to J&K but yes, we will make sure where the money is going,” he stated, adding, “The reason both the government and the opposition is criticizing me is that I have stopped their strategy to loot together. Be it the Congress, NC and PDP…people are aware of everything.”
