Noida: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday unveiled various development projects in Greater Noida. After the inauguration, PM held a public address here claiming the progress by the Modi-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh.
Talking about IAF’s air strike after Pulwama terrorist attack, he said: “They thought that Modi did surgical strike for the first time. Our forces deployed ammunition and other stuff at the border and we went there by air. We were silent after doing this, but Pakistan started crying at 5 am that Modi hit them.”
Hitting out at those who are raising questions over the IAF strike at Jaish-e-Mohammad terror camp, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that instead of hailing the feat, they were leaders in the country who were busy asking if the strike was carried out in Balakot in Pakistan or Bala Kote along LoC in India.
“Recognise this ‘Tudke Tudke’ gang. Pakistan first tweeted that Indian forces had entered their house and killed terrorists. But in our country, there are ‘sirphire’ (mentally not stable) people, who started saying at 8-9 am, where is Balakot — in India or Pakistan,” he said while addressing a gathering here.
“Pakistan was crying. Here in India people started helping them. When Indian forces are saying something, then should there be any suspicion? Those who have Indian blood, love for tricolour flag, and chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai,’ should there be any suspicion,” he asked.
Comparing the situation in Uttar Pradesh before BJP-led government came into power in the state, Modi in his speech said, “Earlier, Noida was known for various land scams. Today Noida is known for the new development opportunities. Noida is growing as a big hub for Make In India. Uttar Pradesh is changing.”
"Today India works on ' nayi reeti , nayi neeti '. After Uri attack, India for first time taught terrorists a lesson in the language they understand," he added.
“Before 2014, there were just two mobile phone manufacturing factories in the country. Today approximately 125 factories are making mobile phones in the country, and out of those 125, many are in Noida,” Modi added.
Raising the terror attack issue, PM commented, “Links of attacks and blasts were connected to Pakistan earlier as well, but what did the previous government do? They just changed the Home Minister. Now you tell me, in such situations should the home minister be changed or the policy?”
Attacking the UPA-led government, Modi said that there are reports that our forces were ready to avenge 26/11 Mumbai attacks, but they were not allowed to act.
Slamming the oppositions' accusation, Modi said, "There is competition among corrupt people to abuse 'chowkidar', they think abusing me will get them votes."
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also attended the inauguration event at Greater Noida. In his speech, he stated that Namumkin ko mumkin banane ka naam hi hai 'Modi' (all the tasks which were impossible for Congress, BSP, and SP have become possible because Modi is there.)
