BJP president Amit Shah on Tuesday attacked the previous UPA dispensation on the issue of border security, saying anybody could have “humiliated” the country’s borders during the government of “Gandhi Parivar” but the Narendra Modi government has secured the borders.

“This government has protected the country’s border. There was a time when UPA government was here for 10 years. There was a government of Sonia (Gandhi) and Manmohan Singh. There was government of ‘Gandhi Parivar’. “Anybody could humiliate country’s borders (at that time) at one’s will,” he said while addressing a function to mark the Punjabi suba golden jubilee here.

Shah asserted that in the last two and half years of Modi government, things have changed. “Today, the whole world has come to know that nobody could dare to see with ill-will at the borders areas of India. If anybody tries to show animosity (on border), a befitting reply is given in order to ensure country’s security,” said Shah.

The BJP chief also dwelt on the achievements of BJP led at the Centre after taking over the reins in 2014. “This government has worked the most for the welfare of farmers after country’s independence. New plans are brought for the welfare of poor, Dalits and economically backward. This government has set a tradition to ensure the gains of the plans reach the beneficiaries and as a result of which, there is a wave of change in the country,” he said.

The BJP president also asked people to vote for the SAD-BJP alliance for further development of the state while cautioning voters not to get swayed by the opposition parties.
