Days after the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government collapsed after a 16-day run in 1996, a young Sushma Swaraj gave a fiery speech in Lok Sabha and made it clear that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was company in its demand of abolishing Article 370.
After 23 years, hours earlier than her death, Sushma Swaraj in the end realised her dream and thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi in her closing tweet.
In her well-known speech of 1996, Sushma Swaraj slams the coalition authorities for toppling Vajpayee’s BJP that was the single largest birthday celebration in the House. Swaraj then goes on to add that the BJP is often branded as “communal” and that is alright, because they prefer the abolishment of Article 370.
As the whole Lok Sabha roars applauding and additionally mocking the younger BJP leader, Sushma Swaraj goes on to say, “Yes, we are communal, due to the fact we demand the abolishment of Article 370, yes, we are communal due to the fact we combat for the country wide flag.”

Amid thumping desks and perception from the Speaker who quips, “don’t make your speech so interesting,” Swaraj goes on to pitch for Kashmiri Pandits.
She says, “Yes, we are communal, because we choose the voices of the Kashmiri refugees to be heard.”
On Tuesday, about three hours before her demise at the age of 67, Sushma Swaraj subsequently realised her dream of abolishing the contentious Article 370 that accorded specific popularity to Jammu and Kashmir.
She wrote, “Thank you Prime Minister. Thank you very much. I was ready to see this day in my lifetime.”
The tweet got here after Lok Sabha cleared the resolutions moved by way of Home Minister Amit Shah to abolish Article 370 and the bill to bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories.
