Bengaluru: Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a rally in Bengaluru trained his guns at Opposition stating when Congress’ ‘mahamilavati remote government’ was at the centre, the nation was living under fear of terror attacks. Calling himself a ‘chowkidar’, he asked the gathering, “Did any major blast take place in the last five years of your “chowkidar’s chowkidaari?” He added that it was the power of a single vote that made it ‘his chowkidaari’ successful.
“When Congress’ ‘mahamilavati remote govt’ was at the centre, didn’t blasts occur in Bengaluru? Didn’t the nation was living under fear of terror attacks?

Stating that he had his own ways of dealing with blasts and terror attacks, PM Modi went on to add that unlike Congress, he does not take the escape route. “When blasts used to take place in the nation, the Congress government used to change its Home Minister and put the entire blame on one person but Modi doesn’t change the Home Minister, Modi changes the ways, ” the PM added.
Amping up his attack on the Congress, PM Modi spoke about ‘Mission Shakti’ and said they didn’t conduct the test earlier as they wanted to keep it a secret. It was this approach of keeping secrets due to which India lagged behind in technology. “Aaj ye himmat Modi ne dikhayi, duniya Bharat ka loha manne laga,” said Modi.

PM Modi sharpened his attack on the Congress over the latter taking potshots over politicising the Indian Army. He added, “Congress is saying it is Modi’s Army. If Modi gave One Rank One Pension (OROP) to the Army, then does Modi not have the right to praise the Indian military. If Modi got constructed the National War Memorial then does Modi not have the right to sing praises.”
(Ye Congress aaj kal keh rahe hain ki Modi sena ka naam nahi lega. Agar sena ko One Rank One Pension diya hai,to is sena ka gaurav gaan Modi ko karna chahiye ki nahi karna chahiye. Agar National War Memorial banaya, to Modi ko iska gaurav gaan karna chahiye ki nahi karna chahiye.)
