Jammu, Jan 31 (PTI) BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh here on Tuesday said that it was only because of Modi's zero-tolerance policy towards terrorism that Rahul Gandhi and sister Priyanka could enjoy the snowfall in the valley.

Rahul Gandhi on Monday shared videos of him having a snowfight with his sister, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and close aide KC Venugopal at a Bharat Jodi Yatra campsite here, as incessant snowfalll painted the valley white. "Modi ji's zero tolerance for terrorism has made it possible for Rahul and his sister Priyanka to enjoy the snowfall in the valley," Chugh said at a gathering held to pay tributes to Praja Parishad martyrs in Jaurian village of Akhnoor belt. He asked why it took 70 years for the Congress and its leaders like Rahul Gandhi to hoist Trianga at Lal Chowk. "Rahul should be thankful to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi led BJP government that he could enter J&K without permit and hoist Tiranga at Lal Chowk without any issue." Chugh unfurled the national flag here in memory of people who sacrificed their lives for the country.

It took 70 years' struggle for the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A, he said.
