BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday affirmed in a public meeting at Sitamarhi that it is the Modi government which has truly secured the borders of the country and made national security as its foremost priority.
“The Prime Minister has taken effective steps to secure the borders of the country. In the regime of UPA-I and II, enemy forces used to run havoc in the country but no action was taken on that front,” Shah contended.
“In the recent past, our 40 security personnel lost their lives in the Pulwama attack by Pakistan-aided terrorism. Due to the decisive nature of PM Modi, our brave Indian Air Force (IAF) troops retaliated and entered enemy territory to debase their terror camps. India is only the third country after Israel and the United States of America (USA) to have retaliated to terrorism in this brave manner,” Shah asserted.
“Sam Pitroda issued a statement that such retaliation is unwarranted but is it a fair question by the opposition,” Amit Shah asked the public. “One thing is clear that if Pakistan fires a bullet, we‘ll surely bomb them,” he affirmed.
“Omar Abdullah said that Kashmir should have a different Prime Minister. It is very unfair and this shows their design that they want Kashmir to not be part of the nation. Till the date, BJP workers are alive, we will make sure that Kashmir is an integral part of India,”Shah said.
“In every corner of the country, people are not chanting the name of Prime Minister Modi without any reason. They are chanting PM Modi’s name because he works for the poor with honesty and purpose. He has never taken a holiday since he became Gujrat’s chief minister. He works 18 hours a day and takes tough decisions with sensitivity for the people,” he said.
“8 crore households have got toilets, 2.5 crore houses have been made for the poor and 2.35 crore people have got electricity for the first time in their houses. Under Ayushman Bharat Yojana, 50 crore people have got the facility of getting up to Rs 5 Lakh for treatment of serious diseases, free of cost,” he added.
“In the times of RJD and Congress rule, people were deprived of basic healthcare facilities. It is the BJP government which has taken credible steps towards alleviation of these problems,” Shah lamented.
The BJP President then elaborated the steps taken by the central and state government for the development of Bihar. “PM Modi has done a lot for the development of Bihar. The NDA government under Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi have freed Bihar from the lawlessness under the jungle raj of RJD rule,” he said.
