Talking to media persons, Raina as per the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) Correspondent said that August 05 is a golden day for Jammu and Kashmir as on this day in 2019, Narendra Modi led central government abrogated Article 370 and 35-A, which was promoting terrorism, separatism and pro-Pakistan ideology in J&K. “Many people have sacrificed their lives for the sake and a dream got fulfilled on August 5 last year,” Raina said as per KNO Correspondent. Similar events were held in all the ten districts of Jammu province wherein BJP and other organizations held events of small scale and celebrated the first anniversary of abrogation of Article 35-A and 370.
