New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday yet again hit out at Congress party claiming that ‘Pakistan uses them to strengthen their case globally’. Addressing an election rally in Sonipat district of Haryana, where elections are scheduled to be held on October 21, PM Modi questioned the ‘chemistry between Pakistan and Congress’.
“When we talk of Swacch Bharat or surgical strike then Congress gets stomach ache, and if by chance anyone says Balakot then Congress starts jumping with pain. Pakistan uses them to strengthen their case globally,what sort of chemistry is this?’ asked PM Modi.
Upping the ante against the grand old party, the Prime Minister further stated that Congress indulged in corruption in agriculture and did scams in sports. “In Congress’s misrule neither jawans nor farmers or sports persons were safe”, PM asserted.
Talking about the Centre’s move to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, PM Modi reiterated,”On August 5, the unexpected happened. Jammu and Kashmir saw a change it needed.”
Furthermore, he hailed Sonipat district, saying that the region has made India proud in every field, be it fighting in the wrestling ring or fighting against terrorism. “Sonipat means ‘Kisan, Jawan aur Pehelwan”, PM added.
Earlier, Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi was also expected to address rally in the poll-bound state but the party announced that Gandhi’s scheduled poll meeting was cancelled due to ‘unavoidable reasons’.
“Shri Rahul Gandhi ji will be addressing a public meeting at Mahendragarh today, at 2 PM. INC India President Sonia Gandhi ji will not be able to attend the meeting due to unavoidable reasons (sic),” the party’s deleted tweet had said in the day. A report in a leading daily had claimed that the the cancellation came after Sonia Gandhi fell ill on Thursday night.
Haryana will go to polls in on October 21 and results will be announced three days later on October 24. Besides, another BJP-ruled state, i.e, Maharashtra will also witness elections on the same day.
