Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi

Union MoS for Parliamentary Affairs

The government has blamed Pakistan for the Uri attack.

Pakistan is now established as a terror factory. The country is a safety hazard for the world community. The government will take action in the national interest. Wait and watch for the Indian response.

Is Pakistan trying to instigate violence in the Valley?

The Uri attack was pre-planned. The terrorists were trained and got support. The conspiracy hatched by Pakistan is for all to see. The attack is in line with terrorist attacks worldwide. The world should join hands for a common action plan against Pakistan.

Uri was the sixth such incident after Narendra Modi became PM.

We don’t have a mindset to count terror attacks. It is a matter of grave concern even if a civilian or a jawan is killed in such attacks. Whoever is behind these will have to face grave consequences. All political parties are of the same view when it comes to national interest. The government will engage them at an appropriate time.

 

Shahnawaz Hussain

BJP’s national spokesperson

‘Indians Trust the Prime Minister’s Leadership’

The BJP National Executive meeting was held under the shadow of the Uri attack.

Nawaz Sharif has disgraced the UN General Assembly. By calling slain militant Burhan Wani a Kashmir hero, Sharif has proved that Pakistan is sponsoring terrorism and has bared Pakistan’s true identity.

BJP leaders are indulging in rhetoric after the Uri attack.

World leaders know that PM Modi went extra miles to strike good relations with Pakistan. Pakistan is isolated. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will lay bare will Pakistan’s true character before the UN General Assembly on Monday.

F-16 fighter jets are flying over Pakistan.

The F-16s can fly only in Pakistan and bomb Balochistan. Pakistani’s are scared of these jets, knowing they would kill innocents in Balochistan.

Congress accused the NDA of rhetoric after the Uri attack.

Indians trust the leadership of the PM. People should keep faith in the ability of the defence forces.

 

Siddharth Nath Singh

BJP’s national secretary

‘People in Uttar Pradesh Want Good Governance’

What are the objectives of BJP?

We are celebrating the birth centenary of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay. The last National Executive meeting in Kozhikode was held when Panditji was president of Bhartiya Jan Sangh. He inspired us to work for uplift of the downtrodden. His ideology of integral humanism guides us to work for the poor.

BJP is approaching the UP elections without a CM face.

Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav has admitted that their CM. BSP chief Mayawati is remembered as a corrupt leader. People in the state want good governance and development. They don’t want just a face.

Amit Shah became party president nine months ago, but he hasn’t named his new team.

When he first became party president during the remaining tenure of Rajnath Singh, he got new office bearers. Now that he is elected for the post formally doesn’t mean that the team should be changed.
