After hearing a batch of pleas for 16 days, the Supreme Court had reserved its verdict on December 5.
BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday warned that “we” will take revenge of the killing of 40 CRPF personnel in the terror attack at Pulwama and will not let their sacrifice go in vain.
Shah was addressing party’s booth level workers here ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. He said that the forces have been given a free hand to hit back at the terrorists and their mentors who were behind the attack. The Modi government was tackling with terrorism effectively and would make Jammu and Kashmir terror free whereas the previous governments miserably failed to solve the situation.
He said Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and nobody can snatch it from us. Coming down heavily on Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, Shah said he raises questions on the situation of Kashmir. “I want to tell him that if questions are being raised about Kashmir today, it’s because of your great-grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru who stopped our forces while they were about to conquer PoK from the illegal occupation of Pakistan.”
Shah said that the opposition parties that were trying to form a grand alliance will not be in a position to take stringent measures for security of the nation. “It’s a situation when some stringent measures for the security of the nation need to be taken, can the opposition alliance provide the country with that? No, they can’t, only PM Modi, who works for 18 hours a day can ensure the safety and security of the nation,” he said.
“They haven’t yet declared a prime ministerial candidate. They only care about dynasty rule,” said Shah. Earlier governments talked a lot and made schemes on papers for the rural people but did nothing for the empowerment of farmers and the economically weaker sections.
He criticised the National Conference and the PDP for “discriminating” with the Jammu and Ladakh regions when these parties were in power in the state. The BJP has taken several steps for the development and empowerment of both these regions of the state, he said.
Referring to the issue of Rohingyas and Bangladeshi illegal settlers, Shah said it was the resolve of the government to evict them from the country.
