Lok Sabha Polls 2019: Here are PM Modi’s top quotes from Kathua rally
- The entire country was commemorating Jallianwala Bagh Centenary yesterday but Congress politicised this sensitive occasion too. The Vice President was in Jallianwala Bagh for govt event, he paid tribute to the martyrs but Congress' CM was not there. He boycotted the event. Do you know why? Because he was busy in 'bhakti' of 'Congress parivar'. He went to Jallianwala Bagh with naamdar but didn't find it right to attend event with Vice President. This is the difference between 'Rashtrabhakti' & 'Parivar bhaskti'. I have known Captain Amarinder Singh for a long time. I have never raised a question on his patriotism. I can understand the kind of pressure which must have been put on him for such 'parivar bhakti'.
- Referring to the Opposition's questions regarding the 2016 surgical strikes and the IAF strikes in Balakot, PM Modi said that the Congress had never trusted the Indian Armed Forces.
- Referring to Congress manifesto promise of withdrawing AFSPA, PM Modi said the grand old is "infected with germs". How can a patriot speak like this?
- The BJP is committed to bring the Kashmiri Pandits back to their land. Will begin the process as soon we are back in power.
- The Congress was so concerned about their vote bank, that they did not see the atrocities against Kashmiri Pandits.
