Prime News, National (New Delhi), September 29:- Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday (September 29) made a scathing attack on the Congress-led Opposition for opposing the Centre’s farm laws, saying they demand evidence of the Indian Army’s surgical strike in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), opposed the Yoga Day and installation of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s statue in Gujarat too.
“Four years ago, around this time the country’s bravehearts carried out surgical strike and destroyed bases of terror. But these people (opposition) were demanding for evidence of the surgical strike. By opposing the surgical strike, they’ve cleared their intention before the country,” the PM said.
The PM went on to say that “when the world was celebrating International Yoga Day, under India’s initiative, they were opposing Yoga in India. When Statue of Unity – made after Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel – was being unveiled, they were opposing it. None of their tall leaders has visited the Statue of Unity so far.”
Training his guns at the opposition, the PM said that “for years these people (opposition) didn’t do anything to empower our security forces. Air Force kept asking for Rafale but they never listened to them. When our govt signed a contract with France government for Rafale aircraft, they started having a problem.”
The PM made these remarks after on inaugurating six mega projects amounting to Rs 521 crores under the Namami Gange Mission in Uttarakhand. The Prime Minister inaugurated several sewage treatment plants and their upgradations today located in Haridwar, Rishikesh, among other regions. (MR, Inputs: Agencies)
