Modi accuses Congress of displaying ‘helplessness’ on security issuesApril 14th, 2009 - 9:41 pm ICT by ANI
Balasinor (Gujarat), Apr 14 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday accused the Congress of displaying ‘helplessness’ on security issues whenever in power.
“Instead of attacking Pakistan what the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government did was made a CD of TV footage of 26/11. They made a file of newspaper cutting, put them in a box and the Home Minister took it to the US. There they cried that our neighbour has beaten us please help us. This is perfect example of helplessness of the government,” Modi said while addressing an election rally here.
Modi also blamed the Congress for releasing over 90,000 Pakistani soldiers in 1975 Indo-Pak war.
“When Indian soldiers captured over 90,000 Pakistani soldiers in Bangladesh, why were they allowed to go free? If BJP would have been in power at that time we would have taken half of the Kashmir in exchange of those 90,000 soldiers,” he added.
Modi also took stand of BJP prime ministerial candidate Lal Krishna Advani, and said: “Advani may not reply on these issues. But in his place I am giving the reply.”
The Gujarat Chief Minister also talked about the 1962 Indo-China war.
“Today, thousands of thousands of acres of Indian land is with China. What was government doing that time?” he added.
Modi also attacked Union Minister Kapil Sibal for asking him to be prepared to go to jail for speaking ‘nonsense’ about the Congress.
“A jail that can hold Modi is yet to be built. I would like to tell the Congress leaders that they have dialled a wrong number. Keep open the doors of all the jails in India and take me whenever you want. My address is known to all,” he added. (ANI)
