Sirsa: Addressing a poll rally in Haryana's Ellanabad on Saturday assured the voters about the completion of Katarpur corridor.
"This opportunity has come 7 decades after independence, 70 years went by. What can be a bigger misfortune than this that we had to see a holy place from afar, through a pair of binoculars?" asked PM Modi here.
Slamming the Oppositions for not taking efforts to eliminate distance, PM Modi said, "Were people responsible to mark line of partition in 1947, didn't think that devotees shouldn't be kept away from Guru by 4 km? Should Congress govt not have made effort to eliminate this distance? Congress and parties affiliated to its culture never respected Indians' culture."
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday attacked the Congress, alleging that their wrong policies destroyed the nation and injustice was continuously done with Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing a gathering here on the last day of campaigning, Modi attacked the party on Article 370 issue, saying it was a temporary provision, but for 70 years the Congress did nothing about it. "I ended this temporary provision. When you made me permanent for five years, why would I allow this temporary thing," he asked.
The Prime Minister also said that four lakh Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes in the valley. He also attacked the Congress on the Kartarpur Corridor issue, saying for 70 years the devotees had to seek 'darshan' of the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara using binoculars. He said the inability to bring Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara in the Indian territory during Partition was a mistake.
