Rajahmundry (Andhra Pradesh): Accusing Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu of having faith on Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, BJP president Amit Shah on Thursday said that one should not stoop down to such a level for political gains.
"Chandrababu Naidu, you trust Pakistan PM but you do not trust the Prime Minister of India. You are taking Imran Khan's side. One should not stoop down to this level for political interests," said Amit Shah while addressing a gathering.
Asserting that the Narendra Modi led government is committed to ensuring the country's security, the BJP president said, "BJP is the only political party in the country to have a zero tolerance against terrorism.
The Prime Minister has given a free hand to the Army to choose place and time. The entire country is standing rock solid with the families of those who lost their lives in the Pulwama attack."
The CRPF personnel were killed on February 14 after a suicide bomber rammed a car laden with explosives into their convoy in Awantipora area of Pulwama in Kashmir. Pakistan-based and backed terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the attack.
Attacking Naidu further, the BJP president alleged that the former has done no work in the last five years for the development of the state.
"Chandrababu Naidu is sitting on dharna in Delhi, Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. If he wishes to sit on dharna then he should sit in front of his party office as he has not worked in the last five years for development of Andhra," he added.
Accusing Naidu of levelling false allegations on the BJP government, Shah said: "Chandrababu Naidu is saying that the development and growth were stopped by BJP. But 10 of 14 tasks of Andhra Reorganization Act have already been completed in the last five years by Modi government."
The BJP president also alleged that the TDP and Jagan Babu's party are corrupt and dynastic parties who can't do any good for Andhra, while the Modi government has given 20 major institutions to the state in the last five years.
"Modi Government has given 20 major institutions, including IIT, IIIT, NIT, IIM, AIIMS, HPCL, Central and Tribal Universities to Andhra Pradesh in the last five years."
BJP president Amit Shah on Friday slammed Congress party for accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not giving due importance to Pulwama terror attack.
The BJP chief defended the Prime Minister, saying that he was leaving no stone unturned in ensuring the safety and security of the nation.
Congress on Thursday accused Prime Minister Modi of not giving “due importance” to the Pulwama terror attack and shooting a film at a time when the entire nation was mourning the killing of 40 CRPF soldiers.
"Our Prime Minister works for 18 hours out in a day. No comments on his intentions to keep the nation safe will make any difference. No allegations in this connection will affect the nation," Shah said.
"Today we are bearing the brunt of the mistake committed by former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Had Sardar Patel been the first Prime Minister of the nation, the situation would have been different," he said.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala on Thursday morning said that February 14 incident was an "attack on the integrity" of the nation.
"How did terrorists acquire a huge amount of RDX and rocket launchers? 48 hours before the attack, JeM (Jaish-e-Mohammad) released a video warning of attack. There was an intelligence report also on February 8. Why were these warnings ignored?" he asked.
Highlighting the steps taken by the Indira Gandhi government against Pakistan, he said: "We defeated Pakistan in 1971. Not only did Indira Gandhi help free Bangladesh. She also got 91,000 Pakistani soldiers to surrender. She made Pakistan to face the defeat."
