Solved Article 370, Ram Mandir, triple talaq issues by not working the old way: PM Modi takes Jibe at Opposition

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on February 6, attacked the opposition for questioning “why the government was in such a hurry”. PM Modi said that the Centre would not have been able to deliver on numerous initiatives had it worked “the old way”.

“The opposition has asked why is the government is in such a hurry (to legislate),” PM Modi said, adding: “If we worked as per the old ways: Article 370 would never have been history. Muslim women would have kept suffering due to Triple Talaq, Ram Janmabhoomi issue would have remained unsolved. Kartarpur Sahib Corridor would not be a reality. There would be no India-Bangladesh land agreement”.

The prime minister said that people of India had seen “our work for five years and then once again blessed us, so that we work even faster”.

“We are aware that the country is not ready to wait for too long even after 70 years of independence. Hence, we want to work with speed and scale, sensitivity and solution,” PM Modi added.
