He, as quoted by ANI, said, “We have planned to organize a number of programs. As part of preparation today, we have held a zonal level workshop here of southern states. The content of the program with heads of each state will be discussed.”

While speaking, he lashed out at the opposition members for criticizing the Narendra Modi government. He said that the government’s decision is completely legal and constitutional. He also said how the special status of erstwhile state had proved to be a major hindrance in the development of Jammu and Kashmir region.
