BJP national president Amit Shah on Saturday said polls should not be held to fulfil desire of a prince to become Prime Minister rather to make India and its economy stronger, and to give Pakistan a befitting reply.
The remarks came as an oblique reference to Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
“Polls should be held to make the country and its economy strong to give Pakistan a befitting reply and not to fulfil the desires of ageing leaders and a family’s prince to become Prime Minister,” Shah said while addressing the BJP’s Vijay Sankalp Bike Rally.
He also slammed the Opposition parties for casting aspersion even over the recent air strike on the terrorist camp in Balakot area of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province.
He criticised Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav over the issue.
He said during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s regime maximum number of terrorists were eliminated in the country.
He blamed the Congress for the delay in the implementation of the One Rank-One Pension (OROP) for the ex-servicemen and creation of the National War Memorial.
