PATNA: Bharatiya Janata Party national president Amit Shah on Sunday said the new India led by PM Narendra Modi will never compromise with Pakistan-sponsored terrorism and would continue to hit terror camps hard whenever required.
Addressing poll rallies in Bihar’s Sitamarhi and Saran districts, Shah said: “There will be no dialogue with Pakistan until and unless terrorism directed against India from its soil is stopped.”
Shah said PM Modi has shown he is a man with a “56-inch chest” by destroying terrorist hideouts in Pakistan.He added all anti-national elements will end up behind bars once the Modi government returns to power, as he hit out at Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for what he described as his “temerity” to promise scrapping of the sedition law.
“If Congress president Rahul Gandhi has a soft corner for Pakistan-backed terrorism he should say ‘I love you’ to terrorists. The Narendra Modi-led government will continue avenging the terror acts and will have no dialogue till terror is tamed. The safety of the nation is above everything for the BJP and its allies”, he said.
Criticising the 10 years of UPA government at the Centre, Shah said Bihar was never given its due share of development. The NDA sanctioned `6,06,000 crore for development work in Bihar, which was used well by the Nitish Kumar–led government”, he said.
Taking a swipe at the Congress, he said when it was in power, the poor did not have money for healthcare, but the Ayushman Bharat scheme has provided free health care to more than 24 lakh poor people.
“And those, who have sought proof time and again on anti-terror strikes, carried out by Indian armed security forces, crossing the border will get a befitting electoral reply by the people of India,” he said.
Attacking the 10 years of the UPA government at Centre, Shah said Bihar was never given its due share for development. “But when the NDA came into governance, around Rs 6,06,000 crores for the development works were allotted to the state, which has now been brought on the track of development by Nitish Kumar –led state NDA government,” he said.
He said “Modi hai to vikas hai’ and the NDA will continue on its agenda of ‘sab ke sath, sab ka vikas’.
Taking a swipe at Congress, he said when the Congress was in power, poor people did not have money for healthcare but the Ayushman Bharat scheme has provided free health cares to over 24 lakh poor
people under the NDA government.
Showing genuine concern to the causes of backward people, he said it is the NDA government that has formed the backward commission with Bhagwan Lal Sahni its first president. “And for the poor people of upper castes also, we gave 10% reservation”, he said.
Calling upon the people to vote for the NDA candidates, he said each vote will help the NDA to continue on its ‘sab ke sath sab ka vikas’ agenda in country.
