On AFSPA, PM Modi says, 'Shouldn't our security forces have safety net?'


Observing that a war-kind of situation always prevailed during the BJP regime, Moily said, "Everytime the BJP comes to power, there is an escalation of hostility between India and Pakistan, it may be Kargil or attack on Indian Parliament under the Vajpayee government or Balakot and Pulwama under the current regime".

Without naming Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati, Modi said that people have built their political career in the name of Bhimrao Ambedkar, but were only working for the benefit of their family members and relatives. "All the equipment for our Armed Forces will be built in India", Modi added.

"SP and BSP have not understood the mood of the people. But the parties do not want to recognize the truth". When terrorists attacked Uri, courageous soldiers of the country conducted surgical strike there.

She also criticised the Prime Minister for allegedly portraying himself as an embodiment of the country. "I had personally approached the Prime Minister several times over the last two years to seek support for ensuring that the centenary of the historic event is observed in a befitting manner but the central government had failed to respond suitably", the Punjab CM said. The strike is said to have killed almost 300 terrorists.

On doubts raised by some opposition leaders on the Balakot air strikes, Modi said Congress has never trusted valour of Indian armed forces. Should surgical strike and air strike take place or not? Why did they get rattled? "Shouldn't our security forces have a safety net" he questioned.

Blaming the Congress for alleged corruption in defence purchases, Modi said that it was only interested because of alleged scams like Bofors. Why do they choose power over Article 370 then?

The PM said that wrong policies of the Congress led to the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in 1989.

Modi then went on to knock the locally operating National Conference and PDP for supporting separatism, arguing that they threaten India with a separate prime minister and exclusion of the state of Jammu and Kashmir from the county, while stressing that the state is integral to India and will remain so.

PM Modi was all praises for the people of Jammu and Baramulla for turning out to vote in large numbers in the first phase of Lok Sabha elections and said, "The huge voting percentages coming out from Jammu and Kashmir reiterated the fact that the people here want to strengthen the democratic structure in the state".
