I want to warn people speaking lie in the name of refugee. From J&K we will find solution to the issue of the refugees. Government in Delhi ready to work for you... the nation, 1.25 crore people are with you.I appeal you to vote for BJP and give us a majority to form a stable government,” said Modi.

Narendra Modi appealed to people of Jammu and Kashmir not to link politics with communalism as A Kashmiri is always a Kashmiri.
“I am here to assure you that I am committed towards development of Kashmir. I am aware about the pain you are suffering.I appeal you not to link politics with communalism... A Kashmiri is always a Kashmiri, said Modi.
