New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday congratulated the people of Jammu and Kashmir for reposing faith in democracy by turning out in large numbers during las month's assembly elections.

Modi said that the state, which at one point of time did not record even two percent votes, saw a 65-70 percent turnout.

He said this was despite every move by separatist forces to malign India internationally.

Hinting at the earlier rule of the Hooda and the Chautala families, Modi complimented the people of Haryana for voting the Bharatiya Janata Party to power and freeing the state from dynastic politics.
