When the country was celebrating after air strikes at terrorist camps, the Opposition here was grieving like Pakistan, BJP national President Amit Shah said on Tuesday in an apparent reference to the Balakot airstrike.
The BJP chief, speaking at a ”Vijay Sankalp” rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad district, alleged that the opposition was insulting the soldiers who died in the Pulwama attack by asking questions on the number of casualties in the Balakot airstrike.
He also said Narendra Modi was the “only” prime minister who responded strongly to terror activities in Pakistan.”We attacked on Pakistan without any delay after the Pulwama attack, while the opposition leaders were insisting for negotiation.”
He asserted that the BJP-led NDA would win 74 of the state’s 80 Lok Sabha seats. It had won 73 in 2014.
Pointing out that Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati were “enemies” earlier, Shah said they had come together now due to “fear” of PM Modi.
He predicted that the SP-BSP-RLD alliance would fail because “our government is very much popular due to our positive works”.
Shah hit out at Yadav, alleging that all miscreants were there in the former chief minister’s government and crime was on the rise.
But during the present BJP government, he claimed, all miscreants were either in jail or fled the state.
