New Delhi: The Home Minister of India on Thursday said India’s first Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru created a “mess” in Jammu and Kashmir by introducing Article 370 in the Constitution, and the Modi government cleaned it by revoking it.

Shah was speaking during a BJP event in Gujarat, where Assembly polls are due in the next two months. He said Congress used to often taunt his party over the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, but work on the mega project was now in progress, news agency PTI reported.

The report quoting Shah further said that due to the mistake of Jawaharlal Nehru, who inserted Article 370, Kashmir was in a mess and Modi removed it in one stroke.

Earlier this week, Modi, during his visit to Gujarat, had also blamed Nehru for the issues plaguing Jammu and Kashmir for decades.

In August 2019, the BJP-led government at the GoI revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two Union territories- JK and Ladakh.
