PM Modi in Haryana

New Delhi, Oct 15: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday asserted that his government will stop water flowing to Pakistan and divert it to Haryana as it rightfully belongs to the country and the farmers of the state.



"For 70 years, water that belonged to Haryana's farmers and to us flowed to Pakistan...But this Modi will stop that water and bring it to your house. I have already started working on it. The water belongs to India and farmers of Haryana...That is why Modi is fighting this for you," he said at a public gathering in Charkhi Dadri amid loud cheers.






Attacking the Congress, Modi accused the opposition party of spreading rumours over Article 370 that granted special powers to Jammu and Kashmir.


"At a time when the country is hailing the decision to repeal Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, a few Congress leaders have gone against it and are spreading rumours in the country and across the world," he said.


Modi reiterated that the abrogation of Article 370 led to the integration of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of the country, saying the region would now see fast-paced development and prosperity.
