Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday stated that the Congress had a history of “appeasing terror and terrorists”, and that the party had questioned the nation’s armed forces about the timing of surgical strikes and airstrikes.
The Prime Minister alleged that the Congress and the JD(S) could never increase investment in Karnataka or open up new opportunities for young people in the state because they were “encouraging terror”.
“People of Karnataka should never forget Congress’s history and thinking. Congress’s history is about appeasing terror and terrorists. When the Batla House encounter happened in Delhi, there were tears in the eyes of Congress’s top most leader, hearing about the death of terrorists,” Modi said.
Addressing a public meeting here, he said, “When surgical strikes happened, when air strikes happened, Congress raised questions on the capability of the country’s defence forces.”
“In Karnataka, you have seen how Congress is encouraging terrorism. Congress had left Karnataka to the ‘rehemokaram’ (mercy) of terrorists. It is the BJP that broke the back of the terrorists, and has ended the game of appeasement,” he claimed, adding that for a prosperous Karnataka, it was important for the state to be safe.
Union Minister A Narayanaswamy and Davangere MP G M Siddeshwara, among others, were present. “Congress’s warranty has ended. Congress has lost the trust. In such a case, guarantees by the Congress without warranty are nothing but lies.” Modi also claimed that the Congress had an “old track record of false guarantees”.
He alleged that the Congress had “tried to confuse the people of Gujarat with such false guarantees” in 2012 and that “some people had even tried to loot the poor people” under the guise of guarantees.
