Infiltrators termites, won’t let them eat Jammu: Amit Shah
Dehradun, Apr 3: BJP President, Amit Shah
on Wednesday slammed the Congress for its silence on the National Conference
chief Omar Abdullah’s demand of a separate Prime Minister for Jammu and
“Omar Abdullah says there should be a
separate Prime Minister in Kashmir. His associates are raising pro-Pakistan
slogans. But Congress is silent. I want to ask Congress President Rahul Gandhi
to clarify whether you are supporting or opposing this demand,” Shah said
at an election rally in Uttarakhand.
Shah, however, made it clear that the BJP
would oppose the demand of a separate Prime Minister tooth and nail. “Till
we are alive, we will never allow this demand to be fulfilled,” he said.
Shah also rallied in Sunderbani area of
Jammu and said that every “infiltrator” will be ousted from India if Narendra
Modi is voted back into power.
“If you choose Narendra Modi government, in
the next five years, we will oust every single infiltrator from the country.
Infiltrators are eating our country like termites. They want to change the
demography of Jammu. As long as there’s BJP government, we won’t let this
happen,” he said.
Referring to the manifesto of the Congress,
Shah attacked the opposition party for seeking the scrapping of the sedition law.
“Who are you protecting? In JNU, they
(students) called for dividing our country into thousand pieces. But you stood
silent outside. Do you want to protect all those who are facing sedition
charges,” he asked.
He also claimed that the Congress wanted to
repeal all laws that provide security to the armed forces. “You cannot
simply do it. We are standing like rock with the armed forces,” he said.
Referring to the Pulwama militant attack in
February, he said only Prime Minister Narendra Modi has the stamina to
retaliate against militants.
“When the Pulwama attack occurred,
there was commotion and sadness all around the country. But our Prime Minister
launched a big attack against militants. This attack occurred when there was no
possibility of a surgical strike due to the heightened security on the borders
by Pakistan. But we carried out airstrikes and destroyed all militants,”
After the Balakot attack, he said a wave of
happiness ran through the country and everybody looked happy.
“But our Rahul Gandhi and the Pakistan
Prime Minister faces looked just the same,” he said, adding that the
country will never be secure under Congress rule.
“If you want to make India a powerful
nation and global leader, only Prime Minister Modi can fulfill your
aspirations,” he said.
He also asked the people to vote for BJP in all the five seats in
Uttarakhand to repeat the feat of 2014. “We are on the path of
development. This development will continue,” he said.
