Union Home Minister and BJP National President Shri Amit Shah on 09 October, 2019 targeted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for being on “holiday” during assembly elections and asked him to make his stand clear on the centre’s decision to end special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing an election rally in Loharu, Haryana, Shri Shah slammed the Congress for dynastic rule.
“Congress party had opposed Triple Talaq bill, surgical strikes, airstrike and the removal of Article 370. When elections are being held in Haryana and Maharashtra, Rahul Gandhi is on a holiday. I want to tell Rahul Gandhi, you should come to Haryana and tell people whether you support the removal of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir or not,” Shri Shah said.
The BJP President said dynastic parties such as the Congress were “termites” that weaken democracy.
He also said Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has enhanced India’s prestige abroad. “The honour which PM Modi receives is not his honour or that of BJP but of the 125 crore people of India,” he said.
He further said the Prime Minister has taken the initiative to make the country a 5 trillion dollar economy and Haryana has an important role to play in it.
Shri Shah said the Manohar Lal Khattar government in Haryana has taken many steps for the welfare of every section including farmers.
