End dynastic rule: Modi in Jammu and Kashmir

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday exhorted the people in this Jammu and Kashmir town to unshackle themselves from the yoke of dynastic politics.

Modi said that Jammu and Kashmir had been held hostage by two families for over 50 years - without naming either the Congress or the National Conference.

"One family rules and robs the sate for five years and then after it becomes unpopular, it gives the power to rob the state to the other family. They have done a political match fixing between themselves.

"I appeal to you to unshackle yourselves from the yoke of this dynastic rule," said Modi while addressing a well-attended Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) poll rally here.

He asked people to vote for the BJP in large numbers so that the next government in the state is formed by the BJP on its own strength.
