Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday attacked Congress and its allies for demoralising security forces by seeking evidence of air strikes against terror camps in Pakistan.
He said they were “making the enemies smile” with such statements.
Addressing NDA’s Sankalp rally in Patna where he formally launched NDA’s campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in Bihar, the Prime Minister asked: “I want to know from Congress and its allies why they are demoralising security forces by asking for proof of the air strikes against terror camps. Why are they issuing such statements that benefit our enemies?”
“Congress and its allies are doing things which are enough for making the enemies smile. At a time when there was a need to speak as one against terror factories, 21 parties in Delhi came together to speak against the NDA. People won’t forgive them,” Modi said.
Modi reminded the public that when the entire country is rejoicing over the IAF’s successful airstrikes on terror camps in Pakistan’s Balakot, “a few of our own people have raised suspicion on such a strikes”.
Modi cautioned people against opposition’s ‘Mahagathbandhan’ agenda, which was “personal and for their own family.” “Had the Mahamilavat government been there, there wouldn’t have been any decision or development because they have a habit of developing themselves,” Modi said.
The Opposition, he said, has a one-point agenda — eliminate or remove Modi, who is a ‘chowkidar’ and ‘pradhan sewak’ of the country and its people.
Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar shared the dais at a political rally after a decade. It was in 2009 that both had come together in Ludhiana.
