Union Home Minister Amit Shah emphasized that the BJP's commitment to "one flag, one prime minister, one constitution" is not a mere political slogan but a principle they firmly believe in, highlighting its implementation in Jammu and Kashmir. Shah responded to TMC's Saugata Roy, who dismissed the concept as a political slogan. Shah questioned the feasibility of a country having two prime ministers, two constitutions, and two flags, deeming Roy's remarks objectionable.
In response to opposition criticism, Shah asserted that the rectification of the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, including the abrogation of Article 370, was necessary. He stated that such changes were not merely election slogans but a longstanding belief of the BJP since 1950. Shah dismissed the need for approval or disagreement, stating that the entire country supported the move.
Union Minister Piyush Goyal chimed in, noting that when Roy mentioned Syama Prasad Mukherjee, he should have acknowledged Mukherjee's sacrifices. Roy, while acknowledging Mukherjee's influence, reiterated that "one flag, one head, one constitution" was a political slogan associated with him.
