Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday listed abrogation of Article 370, settlement of the Ram Temple issue, criminalisation of Triple Talaq and the amendment to the Citizenship Act among the key achievements during his second term, asserting that his government’s decisions in the last one year were aimed at fulfilling the dream of making India a global leader.
In an open letter to the country’s citizens on the first anniversary of his second term as Prime Minister, Modi said in 2019 the people of India voted not merely for continuity but also with the dream of taking India to new heights and making it a global leader.
The decisions taken in the last one year are directed at fulfilling this dream, he said.

In the last one year, some of the decisions were widely discussed and remain etched in public discourse, Modi said.
“Article 370 (abrogation) furthered the spirit of national unity and integration,” he said of the Centre’s decision to abrogate Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcation of the state into Union Territories in August last year.
Referring to the Supreme Court’s unanimous judgement on the Ram temple in Ayodhya, Modi said it brought an amicable end to a debate persisting for centuries.
The Supreme Court, in a landmark verdict in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi title case last year, paved the way for construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
