Congress pampered Article 370; did nothing over Pakistan-sponsored terror:  Shah

April 24, 2024

Akola: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday said Congress pampered Article 370 like a child and did nothing when terror attacks were being perpetrated by Pakistan.

“We did not use our majority to change the Constitution but to remove Article 370 in Kashmir,” Amit Shah said.

He accused the previous Congress government of deliberately not responding to terror attacks perpetrated by Pakistan.

Addressing a rally in Maharashtra’s Akola, he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, on the other hand, launched surgical and air strikes in response to the terror attacks in Uri and Pulwama.

Shah claimed that Congress didn’t take concrete action against terrorism emanating from Pakistan because of its vote bank politics.

“When Sonia-Manmohan Singh’s government was in power, every day Pakistan used to carry out attacks. But, due to vote bank politics, Congress did nothing,” Amit Shah said.

He, however, claimed PM Narendra Modi finished off the terrorists who attacked India.

“When the BJP government was formed and the Pulwama Uri attacks took place, within 10 days, PM Modi carried out surgical and air strikes and finished off the terrorists. PM Modi eliminated naxalism from Maharashtra,” he added.

The Indian armed forces attacked terror bases deep inside Pakistan twice during PM Modi’s first term, to avenge the Uri and Pulwama terror attacks.

Amit Shah said when the Congress exited government at the Centre, the economy of India was in the 11th position. He added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi brought the country to the 5th position.

Amit Shah promised that PM Modi will bring India’s economy to the third position in the world.

Earlier this month, PM Narendra Modi had said India’s enemies had been taking advantage of a weak government. Under him, India’s forces killed terrorists on their turf, he added.
