Muzaffarnagar (Uttar Pradesh) [India], April 3 : Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday credited Prime Minister Narendra Modi for ending terrorism in Kashmir and said that he efficiently "secured" the nation.
Addressing an election event in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar on Wednesday, Shah said, "Kashmir belongs to us. When you made PM Narendra Modi Prime Minister for the 2nd time, he removed Article 370 and made Kashmir an integral part of India. PM Narendra Modi did the job of ending terrorism in Kashmir. He has made the nation secure and prosperous."
" Modi ji has done the work of eliminating the terrorists by entering Pakistan and carrying out surgical strikes and air strikes," he said.
He further said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's efforts to strengthen the country.
"The aim of the 'Ghamandiya' alliance is to make people from their family the Prime Minister and Chief Minister. Whereas Modi ji's aim is to strengthen the country's farmers, poor, labourers, Dalits and tribals and make them stand on their feet," he added.
Shah further hit out at the INDIA bloc for allegedly stalling the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya during their tenure.
"The Ghamandiya alliance people never wanted a Ram temple to be built in Ayodhya. Congress kept the Ram Janmabhoomi issue stalled, hanging and misleading for 70 years. Modi ji not only won the case, performed the Bhoomi Pujan and also did the Pran Pratishtha of Ram Lalla on January 22," the Home Minister said.
"This election is to make Modi ji the Prime Minister for the third time. Modi ji has done a lot of work for the upliftment of the poor and farmers," he added.
Shah alleged that the opposition has united with those 'indulged in corruption and scams'.
"The Ghamandiya alliance that has come together in this election, has brought together people who have committed scams and corruption worth Rs 12 lakh crores. I want to tell you that Modiji came to Chaudhary Charan Singh Ji's honour ceremony. On the same day, Ghamandiya Alliance organised a corruption rally and in that rally, they talked about giving protection to the corrupt," he said.
Uttar Pradesh, which sends the maximum number of MPs, 80, to Parliament, will vote in all seven phases.
Earlier in the 2019 elections, turning the arithmetic of the SP-BSP 'Mahagatbandhan' in Uttar Pradesh upside down, the BJP and its ally Apna Dal (S) won 64 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats. The partners in the alliance, Akhilesh Yadav's SP and Mayawati's BSP, could only muster 15 seats.
Voting for phases one and two will be held on April 19 and April 26. Next, the state will once again poll in phases three and four on May 7 and May 13. The Uttar Pradesh electorate will also vote in phases five, six and seven on May 20, 23 and June 1 respectively. The votes will be counted on June 4.
