PERAMBALUR: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday accused that the Congress of ‘spoiling’ India’s and Tamil Nadu’s culture during its rule, adding the grand old party was now attempting to get to power through backdoor.
Singh made this observation while addressing a poll campaign meeting in favour of the Perambalur Lok Sabha constituency AIADMK Candidate N.R Sivapathy here. He said not only the leaders of the Congress but also its alliance party leaders are in “jail and bail” and asked how they could give good governance to the country.
“The Congress front is a drowning ship,”he said, adding, the BJP-front led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi would sweep the Lok Sabha elections and form the government at the centre again.
Listing various achievements of the BJP government, he said that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) declared that India is a fast-growing economy in the world. He said it has provided housing facility to 1.30 crore people and reached individual toilet facility at 95 per cent of the rural people against 40 per cent during 60-year rule of Congress.
He also assured the establishment of a special economic zone for Perambalur, and a rail link between Perambalur and Ariyalur if the BJP was returned to power.
Recalling the surgical strike against Pakistan and attack on Balakot, Mr. Rajnath said that the surgical strike was in retaliation to the Pulwama terror attack, that too within 15 days; the attack against Balakot in Pakistan was never an attack against the defense forces or general public of Pakistan, but only to send out a message that “if they crossed their limit, we are ready to face it.”...
