Prime Minister Narendra Modi has laid the strong foundation for a corruption-free India, Shah said. The UPA government was involved in corruption scandals totalling RS 12 lakh crore.

Three families ruled Jammu and Kashmir for decades, and there was no development due to Article 370 in the Constitution which gave special status to the state, the Minister said.

Under Modi, the noose around terrorism has been tightened, he asserted.
