BJP President Amit Shah on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government has issued a stern message to Pakistan and it is up to Pakistan to decide its next course of action on dealing with terrorism emanating from its soil.

Speaking at the India Today Conclave 2019 in New Delhi, BJP President Amit Shah said that Pakistan should walk the talk when it comes to putting an end to terror. Amit Shah slammed Pakistan Prime minister Imran Khan for not condemning the terror attacks in Pulwama. He further said that Pakistan as a terror backer has been exposed.

Replying to the question of posters of Pulwama martyrs displayed at BJP party events, Amit Shah said the posters were there to be garlanded and for leaders to express their tribute.

Amit Shah slammed the Opposition parties for resorting to politics during this time of national crisis. “When the BJP was in Opposition and the government of the day faced such a crisis, the BJP had stood with the government. But the question the Opposition raised during the IAF’s airstrike on the terror camps in Pakistan after the Pulwama attack was uncalled for,” said Amit Shah. Hitting out at Congress, the BJP chief Amit Shah said that the Opposition was wrong in equating India with Pakistan.

Amit Shah added that if talks were the answer to terror, why any solution has not been found yet. The country needs to speak in one voice when terror comes calling, said the BJP president. Shah also said BJP senior leader and former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa should not have politicised Pulwama attack and asserted that BJP is not going to reap the benefits of India’s air strikes in the Lok Sabha elections.

Speaking on the issue of Kashmir, BJP chief said the mistake Jawahar Lal Nehru made in Kashmir can’t be easily solved. We have tried to solve the issue and we will find a solution for Kashmir in future days, said Amit Shah.

Speaking about the losses of the BJP in the recent state polls, Amit Shah said that the general elections will be fought on a different set of issues. The performance of the Narendra Modi government should be compared with the past government to ascertain the developments achieved, said Amit Shah.

BJP chief Amit Shah has said that the SP-BSP alliance is not a setback for their party. He added that despite the loss in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, BJP continues to have a strong base in these places.

“SP-BSP alliance is no set back for us. We started with 6 states in 2014 and now ruling in 16 states. There is a ray of hope in 50 Crore people that there is PM who think for poor, ” Amit Shah added.

Rejecting the allegations that the BJP government has been interfering with the working of public institutions, Amit Shah said an elected government has the right to give recommendations to RBI and other institutions. The elected government is accountable to the people. No institution is bigger than the country, said Amit Shah.

BJP president Amit Shah said the Congress does not have the moral right to question the Modi government on the alleged controlling of the institutions as it was the Congress which had imposed emergency.

“We are an elected govt which is responsible to people and parliament. Why can’t govt advise RBI? Who is accountable to people? CBI Director can’t be a dictator. We can’t change it but we can control,” said Amit Shah.

On Priyanka Gandhi joining active politics, BJP chief Amit downplayed Priyanka Gandhi’s role, said that she has been in politics for the last 12 years. “Mrs Vadra is in politics for the last 12 years. After losing polls they call it re-entry. People have no hope in it. The days for dynasty are gone,” said BJP President.
