Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Friday criticised the Opposition parties for having a one-point agenda of trying to remove Prime Minister Narendra Modi from power.
“They cannot make any big gains with their negative mindset,” said Singh speaking at a public meeting in Lakhimpur.
The home minister said the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party had formed an alliance in UP as they feared they would be blown away by the BJP here.
He also questioned the Congress promise to abolish the legal provisions against sedition.
Claiming that India has grown even stronger under PM Mod, the senior BJP leader said, “Now even the most powerful countries of the world can’t dare to frown at India.”
The home minister attacked the opposition for raising questions over the Balakot air-strike and the surgical strike after Uri attack. Singh said in Hindi, “They ask how many enemies were killed.”
“I want to say that the brave never count bodies. It is the vultures who do this,” he added.
Singh appealed to people to vote for BJP candidate Ajay Kumar Mishra ‘Teni’.
Earlier, Rajnath Singh said the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will get a threefourth majority in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
