Rally in Jhanjharpur, Bihar

Comparing the Janta Dal United (JDU) and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) alliance in Bihar with oil and water, Union Home and Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah said that this coalition is an alliance of selfishness and they can never unite. “The alliance of JDU and RJD is like oil and water, they can never unite. Nitish Babu, no matter how high the selfishness is, oil and water cannot be one. The oil has nothing to do with it, but the oil makes the water dirty. The alliance made to become the Prime Minister is going to sink you,” Shri Shah said at a public meeting in Bihar’s Jhanjharpur on 16 September, 2023.

Hitting out at the JDU-RJD governance in Bihar, Shri Shah said that the alliance is taking Bihar towards ‘Jungle Raj’. “There is a Lalu-Nitish government in Bihar. I have been reading the newspapers of Bihar. The incidents of kidnapping, firing, looting, and murder of journalists and Dalits are increasing every day. Lalu ji has become active once again, and Nitish ji has become inactive. From this, you can understand what is going to happen in Bihar. This selfish alliance is taking Bihar towards Jungle-Raj,” the union Home minister said.

This I.N.D.I.A alliance is selfish. Lalu Yadav wants to make his son the Chief Minister. Nitish Kumar wants to be the Prime Minister. But it is not possible because the position of the Prime Minister is not vacant. Shri Narendra Modi is going to take that position again, he added.

They have made a new alliance with a new name. They worked under the name of UPA and indulged in corruption worth Rs 12 lakh crores. Lalu Yadav did corruption worth crores while he was the Railway Minister. They changed their name because they could not come back with the name UPA, hence they had to come up with the INDIA Alliance,” Shri Shah said.

PM Modi started a new tradition of ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’

Hyderabad Liberation Day’

Union Home and Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah speaking at the Centre’s official celebration of ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’, the day erstwhile princely state of Hyderabad State was merged with the Indian Union on September 17, 1948 said it was ‘very unfortunate’ that even after the formation of Telangana state almost a decade ago, political parties were hesitating to celebrate the ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’ in the state due to their vote bank politics.

“I would like to tell them that the people of the country would turn away from those who turn away from their country’s history,” Shri Shah said and affirmed that Telangana and the country can be taken forward only by respecting the nation’s history, the sacrifices of martyrs and the country’s freedom struggle. The union Home Minister hoisted the national flag and received the guard of honour on the occasion.

Shri Shah credited the country’s first Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel with the liberation of Hyderabad and said due to his efforts Nizam’s Razakars surrendered to the Indian Union. He recalled how on September 2, 1947 in Parkala, the Nizams army commander, ordered firing like General Dyer, killing hundreds of freedom fighters.

The union Home Minister said no government in the past 75 years has celebrated the historic ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’ and formulated programmes to remind the younger generation about this great day. Owing to ‘appeasement policies’ the previous governments were always scared and did not celebrate it, he said. Hailing Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for starting a new tradition by celebrating the day since 2022, he said this is a tribute to the martyrs of Hyderabad Liberation struggle and sends out a message to the younger generation. Citing reasons to celebrate the ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’, he said it was to inculcate a sense of patriotism among the younger generation, pay homage to the martyrs of the ‘liberation’ struggle and rededicate in the service of the nation.
