BJD is in power for so long years. Give us a chance: Rajnath Singh

Bhubaneswar:19/4/19: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday asked if former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi can be credited for dividing Pakistan, why shouldn’t Prime Minister Narendra Modi get the credit for the Balakot air strike.

“In 1971, the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had dealt fitting blow on Pakistan. Pakistan was split into two nations. Indira Gandhi was praised countrywide then. Atal Behari Vajpyee had also praised Indira. However now Congress is wanting proof (of airstrikes) and is questioning Narendra Modi”, Singh said addressing poll rallies in Odisha today.

After the war, our leader A B Vajpayee praised Indira Gandhi in Parliament. She was also praised all over the country, he said.

After the terrorists’ attack on CRPF in Pluwama, the Pakistan-based terrorists have been given fitting reply. Airstrikes were done by entering into their homes and they have been eliminated. The opposition wanted the proof, he said.


The Pakistani terrorists struck on Mumbai on November 26, 2008. Innocent civilians were killed. Jawans and policemen were killed. The congress-led government then sat silent and did not launch retaliatory attack on Pakistan. Pakistan told of action against terrorists. The congress government took it for granted and watched silently. But time has changed now. We do not interfere in others’ matter. But we not spare anybody who provokes us”, he said.

“BJD is in power for so long years. Give us a chance. We will show how the good governance is done” Time has come to overthrow the Naveen Patnaik government”, he said seeking votes for the saffron party in twin elections.


He said the Centre has also been prioritizing the Odia language and its culture and it will continue to do so.

 Alleging that Odisha government has done nothing for the State in last 19 years of rule, Singh urged the people to replace the corrupt Government.

He also lambasted the State Government for failing to give details of farmers for PM-KISAN.
