The government now faces widespread opposition in Kashmir to a plan to scrap a constitutional article that gives the Himalayan region a special autonomous status within India.

At another rally in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad, Modi renewed his attack on the Congress and other opposition parties over the issue of national security.

PM Modi was all praises for the people of Jammu and Baramulla for turning out to vote in large numbers in the first phase of Lok Sabha elections and said, "The huge voting percentages coming out from Jammu and Kashmir reiterated the fact that the people here want to strengthen the democratic structure in the state. But in this new India when terrorists attacked Uri, our courageous soldiers conducted a surgical strike", he said.

Accusing the Congress and its allies of always criticizing him for highlighting India's security situation, he said: "They do so because they never fully trusted the country's defence forces".

"Some people are so involved in anti-Modi tirade that they have forgotten the security of the country".

Omar Abdullah had recently called for restoring a separate post of Prime Minister of Jammu-Kashmir.

"'We have to rid J&K of these two political families,' says Modiji in 2014 & then promptly goes & makes not one but TWO members of the Mufti family CM of J&K".

"These families have sucked the blood of people of J&K for long and I challenge them - let them field all their relatives in the polls, abuse me as much as they can, but I will not allow them to succeed in their nefarious design of dividing India", he said after starting his speech in the local Dogri language.

Modi also vowed that India would never give up its claim to Kashmir, which is divided between the two countries, and has been the cause of two wars between the neighbours since their independence in 1947. But this is new India.

Pakistan responded by sending its warplanes toward Indian airspace, leading to a dogfight and the downing of an Indian jet.
