Enemy knows this is new India, says Modi


JAIPUR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday launched a scathing atack on the opposition, saying the Congress never permited soldiers to get even with the enemy.

Addressing a mammoth rally in Rajasthan’s Churu in support of paralympic Devendra Jhajahria, PM Modi said that things have changed now as “the enemy knows that this is New India, which enters into enemy territorie­s to give a befiting reply to them.”

“As long as the Congress people remained in power, they kept the hands of our soldiers tied... The enemy would atack and leave but they did not allow the soldiers to respond.

“The soldiers kept demanding one rank one pension, but they did nothing... When our government came, we gave them open permission to give befiting replies to enemies on borders.

“Today even enemies know that ‘This is Modi; This is New India which atacks ater entering into territorie­s of enemies.”

PM Modi recalled his visit to Churu on Feb.26, 2019, which came soon ater the Balakot airstrikes. “We had taught the terrorists a lesson,” he said. He repeated the words he shared in Churu last year and said, “Main desh nahin jhukne doonga, saugandh mujhe hai miti ki...”

“When our Army carried out the surgical strikes, the Ghamandiya Ghathbandh­an demanded proof of bravery from the Army. Insulting the Army and dividing the country is the identity of the Congress party,” he said.

PM Modi atacked the opposition’s alliance and said the people of the ‘Ghamandiya Ghathbandh­an’ had called Lord Ram “imaginary.”

“Just a few months ago, the dream of Ram temple in Ayodhya was fulfilled.

“The Congress party was openly insulting our faith,” he said, adding, “The country has always paid the price for the sins of Congress.”

He further said that a journalist told him that the Congress Party has issued an advisory out of fear in which they have asked their workers to stay tight lipped if there is any discussion about the Ram temple.

“Our country now cannot tolerate this grave insult to our faith,” he added.

Speaking on the bold steps taken by the NDA government, the PM said, “Today Article 370 has been abolished from Kashmir.

“The law on triple talaq is helping our Muslim sisters. Entire families used to live in tension in fear of triple talaq. Modi has saved not just Muslim sisters but all Muslim families.”
