With President Donald Trump sitting in the front row, he addressed the Indo-American community in Houston. He spoke extensively on topics relating to trade, terrorism, elections, development and economy. Pointing out the abrogation of Article 370, the PM stated that the move has freed women, children and Dalits of discrimination. The BJP-led Central government abrogated Article 370 on August 5, revoking the special status given to the state of Jammu and Kashmir, and further bifurcating the state into two union territories- Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
