PM secured India by stopping Rohingya infiltration: Shah

Nov 12, 2023 05:18 AM IST

Union Home Minister Amit Shah praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for stopping members of the Rohingya community from entering India and banning the Popular Front of India (PFI). He accused the Congress party of dynastic politics and corruption ahead of the upcoming elections in Madhya Pradesh. Shah warned that if the Congress were to win, it would result in a government with too many cooks and a lack of productivity. The Congress party criticized the BJP for resorting to religious and nationalist tactics in the elections.

Bhopal: Union home minister Amit Shah on Saturday credited Prime Minister Narendra Modi with “securing India” by stopping members of the Rohingya community from entering the country and said the Opposition bloc of 28 parties was not equipped to stop the “intruders”.

“Modi ji has stopped infiltrators from entering the country. Congress and INDIA (Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance) bloc leaders cannot do that. The PM secured India. He also banned PFI,” he said.

Raising the poll pitch for the upcoming elections, Shah accused the Congress of dynastic politics and corruption.

“Kamal Nath wants to make [his son] Nakul Nath the chief minister. Sonia Gandhi has in mind to make her son Rahul the Prime Minister. What good will they [Congress] do to the country if they work for their sons and daughters?” Shah said.

He added: “Kamal Nath raised a Ganga of corruption. He discontinued all the welfare schemes This corrupt person can’t do anything for MP.”

The elections to the 230-member Madhya Pradesh assembly are scheduled on November 17.

During his address, Shah also said that if the Congress were to win the elections, it would form a “teen tigaada, kaam bigaada’ (too many cooks playing spoiler) government. “Theirs would be a ‘teen tigada, kaam bigada’ government. The orders will come from the Gandhi family, instructions will be given by Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh will be made the fall guy,” he said.

Hitting back, Congress spokesperson KK Mishra said: “BJP leaders know that they are losing the elections, so they are using their old tactics of using religion and nationalism in the elections. Voters are smart enough to understand their tactics.”
