Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday accused the Congress of trying to show “disaster into anarchy” and said the country has been suffering from “locusts and losers”.
“In the time of a calamity, there’s torment of locusts and losers, and both should be addressed strongly. While locusts are dangerous for crops, losers cause disgust within the country. the whole country is strongly working for turning disaster into opportunity but the Congress is trying to show disaster into anarchy,” he alleged.
Addressing BJP workers through a web event within the UP town amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the minority affairs minister said the dream of ‘antyodaya’ (empowering the poorest) are going to be achieved through commitment of “aatmanirbhar Bharat” (self-reliant India).
Today, the country has been speedily moving forward on the trail of a self-reliant India under the strong and effective leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said, adding that this challenge of crisis will bring a replacement dawn of “inclusive empowerment”.
With the Congress attacking the Modi government over the border standoff with China in eastern Ladakh, Naqvi said it had been unfortunate that while security forces are effectively working with commitment to guard our borders, some political parties try to “demoralise” them.
“This is that the same party which had raised question on the valour of our security forces during the surgical and air strikes during a criminal conspiracy to disgrace India,” Naqvi alleged.
He said the country has complete trust in Modi.
The country is in safe hands, and therefore the Modi government is leaving no stone unturned to make sure the country’s safety and dignity, he said.
