While addressing the rally at Paralakhemund under the Berhampur Lok Sabha constituency Shah claimed, “Rahul (Gandhi) Baba's party attempted to link the Hindu community with terrorism. It was a bid to defame Hindus across the world.” The polls for Paralakhemund will go in the first phase on April 11.
Shah smacked congress and said thousands of people including the Swami Aseemanand got a clean chit recently on Samjhauta Express blast case. These people have no concern over the National security as they let the culprits go free in the case.
Shah said that it was only BJP-Led Government who took decisive action on the Pulwama Attack by carrying out a Balakot Air Strike operation. The operation was a successful mission as the terror camps were destroyed inside Pakistan. Shah accused Congress party of speaking the language of Pakistan. He said that the words spoken by Congress party give more strength to the terrorists.
Apart from Congress, he took a dig on Indian Overseas Chief Sam Pitroda and said, “Pitrodaji, this (talks) may be the policy of your party. But, our policy is to fire -- 'atankwadi goli chalayenge to hum gola chalake jawab denge' -- if terrorists fire bullets, we retaliate by using bombs. None other than Modi can ensure so much importance to the national security.”
While addressing the valley, Shah ensured that Odisha needs a young CM for speedy development. The BJD government followed a step-motherly approach for which the state remained backward. People of the state need to defeat the current CM of the state in order to see development in the Odisha.
He claimed, “People must choose an Odia-speaking CM this time.”
The Lok Sabha Polls in the state will be held in four phases on April 11, 18, 23 and 29. The BJP is heading out a target of winning at least 120 out of 147 seats in Odisha.
