Speaking on the occasion, Shri Amit Shah said that the country can never forget the contributions of Shri Syama Prasad Mookerjee and Shri Premnath Dogra because if it were not for the two of them, Jammu &Kashmir would never have had a permanent association with India.

He said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken forward the movement led by these two great personalities to its logical end.
The Union Home Minister said that due to the rule of three families, Jammu and Kashmir had been left far behind other states in terms of development, but after 2014, Prime Minister Modi has ensured that Jammu and Kashmir is developed and move together with other states of the country. He said that in Jammu and Kashmir, 42 thousand people died of terrorism and nobody flinched an eye in Delhi. Shri Shah said that now, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, terrorism is under control of the security forces. He said that because of the strong leadership of Prime Minister Modi, nobody goes on strike in Jammu and Kashmir anymore. He said that earlier, even the annual budget was not worth crores of rupees but now development works worth crores of rupees are completed in a month and this difference has been enabled by the establishment of peace in Jammu and Kashmir.
Shri Amit Shah said that today people in Jammu and Kashmir have 24 hours power supply in their homes and this is a big change. He said that democracy becomes strong only when the people welcome the change. He said that there is a need to recognize the three families who worked to promote terrorism, backwardness and the politics of separatism instead of development in Jammu and Kashmir.

He said that those who want development have faith in the developmental journey, while those who are involved in corruption have nothing to do with development.
Shri Amit Shah said that for the first time, it is Prime Minister Modi, who has worked to recognize Kashmiri, Dogri, Urdu and Hindi as official languages because if the language of governance is local then the administration becomes more accountable. He said that now Jammu and Kashmirdoes not witness the incidents of stone pelting as the government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi is moving ahead on the path of development.
