Releasing the BJP Sankalp Patra or manifesto, for Lok Sabha elections 2019 on 08 April, 2019, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said the government was moving ahead with ‘one mission and one direction. He said the development had to be flexible to suit the country’s diversity, it had to be multi-layered and multi-directional. We addressed the needs of people, now, we will fulfill their aspirations, said Prime Minister Shri Modi.
“Congress admitting to 60 years of injustice with call for ‘Nyay’”
On the other hand the Congress promised Nyay (justice) to poor in its manifesto this time. Launching a stinging attack on the manifesto of Congress party for the upcoming elections, which says ‘Ab Nyay Hoga’, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said, “This election is an admission of the injustices Congress has committed for the last 60 years in power”.
“Their main slogan for this election is ‘Ab Nyay Hoga’. So knowingly or unknowingly, they have admitted that they did injustice for 60 years in power,” Shri Modi said, adding several sections of the Indian society are awaiting justice after being “wronged” by the Congress. “What about justice for the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh riots? What about Nyay for the victims of Triple Talaq? What about the farmers of Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh who were promised loan waivers? You promised them justice in 10 days. It has been 100 days now. When will they get justice?” the PM asked.
Raking up the ISRO ‘spy case’, PM Shri Modi said, “The great scientist Nambi Narayanan was framed in a false case and thrown in jail. It dealt a blow to India’s space programme. Nambi Narayanan is also asking for Nyay or justice.”
The PM also slammed the Congress for coining the phrase ‘Hindu terror’ after the Samjhauta Express blast, saying Hindus of the country are demanding Nyay. “You jailed innocent people in connection with the Samjhauta Express blast. They were in jail for so many years in a false case. They are asking for justice. In the name of the Samjhauta case, you coined the term ‘Hindu Terror’ to link Hindus to terrorists. This nation’s Hindus are asking for justice. They want to know why they were branded terrorists.”
Accusing the Congress of denying leaders like BR Ambedkar, Subhas Chandra Bose and Sardar Patel a place in history, Shri Narendra Modi said the call for Nyay is coming from every corner of the country, adding that the Congress is “incapable” of delivering justice.
‘Pakistan is also saying what Congress’s manifesto says’
In one hand BJP is promising for good governance, strong India, action against terrorism and welfare of all sections of the society, on the other hand the Congress manifesto stood for Pakistan more than for India on the issue of Kashmir. Pointing out this, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said, “Congress says Article 370 will not be removed from Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan is also saying what Congress’s manifesto says.”
Alleging that the Congress manifesto was about weakening the security establishment, Shri Modi said the Congress and their friends have anti-national thinking and attitude and the language that Congress speaks is the same language that Pakistan also speaks.
The PM said those who talk of a separate PM and secession of Jammu and Kashmir are the ones whom the nation had trusted once. “Their real thoughts are now in the open”. Hitting out at the Congress, Shri Narendra Modi said Congress and Pakistan both want that those who spread terror and want India to break, roam freely in the country. “Both Congress and Pakistan want that our soldiers don’t get the strength that they need to tackle the menace of terror”.
The Prime Minister reiterated his allegation that the opposition parties who were questioning the valor of the security forces post Pulwama terror attack have anti-national thinking. The Prime Minister said the BJP-led government will not sit quietly while terrorists get a free hand. “India will go in and eliminate terrorists. That is the mantra of new India,” Shri Narendra Modi said.
