‘Do you support our Armed forces or suspect them?’: PM Modi slams politicians being quoted by Pakistan to undermine India

Modi highlighted how statements by various politicians are helping Pakistan and undermining our Armed Forces

Prime Minister Modi was at an event in Kanyakumari to lay the foundation stone for various developmental projects, meant to enhance connectivity and infrastructure in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. Two major railway projects were also flagged off -Madurai-Chennai Tejas Express and Rail connectivity between Rameswaram and Dhanushkodi.

Hailing Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who also happens to be from Tamil Nadu, Modi asserted that every Indian is proud of the exceptional courage and valour exhibited by the Wing Commander. He said in contrast to the UPA times, during which multiple terror attacks happened, the Air Force and other Indian Armed Forces were restricted by Congress to initiate any action, However, today, they have full authority to carry out strikes to eliminate forces inimical to the idea of India.


Modi also held the then Congress government responsible for rendering the country helpless in the wake of multiple terror attacks in the period from 2004 to 2014. Emphasising on ‘New India’, Modi asserted that the country will no longer be taking the terror attacks lying down, instead all the damages inflicted on India will be returned back with interest to the perpetrators.


Criticising political parties in India who have questioned the authenticity of the Air strikes, Modi alleged that while the world is supporting India in its fight against terrorism, some political parties are doubting the government’s intent of fighting the terror and suspecting our Armed Forces. Modi highlighted how such statements are helping Pakistan and undermining our Armed Forces. He contended that Modi-driven hatred has turned them into India-haters. He proclaimed such measures which are meant to advance their respective political interests will only weaken the country. “Modi will come and go, India will remain,” he said.


PM Modi also drew attention towards his government’s no-tolerance policy against corruption. In an apparent jibe at Kapil Sibal, Modi said: “While corruption is acceptable to those who have dismissed scams worth lakhs of rupees as Zero loss, our government has come down heavily against the corrupt.” He also accused Congress of not according BR Ambedkar respect that he deserved. He said it took a non-Congress government at the centre to confer Bharat Ratna upon BR Ambedkar.
