People travel to J&K without permit due to Mookerjee’s sacrifice: Shah
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said Jan Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mookerjee’s passion for a united and strong India continues to inspire people.
In a tweet to mark Mookerjee’s 66th death anniversary, the Prime Minister said he was a devout patriot and proud nationalist.
“Dr. Mookerjee devoted his life for India’s unity and integrity. His passion for a strong and united India continues to inspire us and gives us strength to serve 130 crore Indians,” Modi said.
Mookerjee died in Jammu and Kashmir on this day in 1953 under mysterious circumstances.
Meanwhile, paying tributes to Jana Sangh founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee on his death anniversary, BJP president Amit Shah said today that it is due to his sacrifice that people from other States can travel to Jammu and Kashmir without permit and that West Bengal became a part of India.
Shah, who is also the Union Home Minister, went to the BJP headquarters here to pay tributes to Mookerjee and asserted that his agitation for Jammu and Kashmir’s complete integration with the country was independent India’s first nationalist stir.
