August 5: Historic day for Ram Mandir and Jammu and Kashmir, tweets Vijayvargiya
New Delhi: With reports of Prime Minister Narendra Modi attending the ‘bhoomi pujan’ ceremony of Ram Temple in Ayodhya on August 5, preparations are in full swing to make it a grand affair.
August 5 is not just another auspicious date for the ruling BJP. It marks the date when two of its biggest electoral and long-standing promises saw light of the day. August 5, 2020 will mark the first anniversary of abrogation of Article 370, which ended state’s special status and brought it at par with other states.
BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya took to Twitter to announce the same.
He stated that on this day foundation stone of the RamJanmabhoomi in Ayodhya will be laid while it also marks the first anniversary of the scrapping of Article 370, 35A of the Constitution in Jammu and Kashmir.
Vijayvargiya tweeted in Hindi, “Historical date! 5 August 2019 – Section 370, 35A abolished, August 5, 2020 – Prabhu Shri Ram Temple Bhoomi Pujan.”
ऐतिहासिक तारीख !!!
5 अगस्त 2019 – धारा 370, 35 A खत्म
5 अगस्त 2020 – प्रभु श्रीराम मंदिर भूमि पूजन
जय जय श्री राम 🚩🚩🚩

The Parliament had in August last year adopted a resolution to abrogate Article 370 and passed a Bill to bifurcate the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories- Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
