Will not allow Abdullahs, Muftis to divide India: PM Modi

Will not allow Abdullahs, Muftis to divide India: PM Modi

Every Indian owes his allegiance to India, not PM Modi.

Reiterating the message of development, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said the development programmes of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government has never differentiated between people on the basis of caste, religion and region. "But in this new India when terrorists attacked Uri, our courageous soldiers conducted a surgical strike", he said.

Earlier today at a rally in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, Prime Minister Modi slammed the Abdullahs and Muftis, saying two families "ruined" three generations of Jammu and Kashmir and he will not allow them to "divide" India. "They have given a befitting reply to the anti-India and separatist voices as well as to the "Maha-Milawati" gang who have always doubted the people's abilties and willingness to vote for elections in India". He added that the PM was trying to mislead the people of the country with politically motivated falsehoods.

"Abdullah family and Mufti family have destroyed lives of three generations of Jammu and Kashmir". He thundered that "these corrupt families of J&K must know that Modi will stand like a wall against their attempts to continue their family rule in the state".

"I for once have never lowered political discourse by abusing opponents inc BJP". In this context, Prime Minister Modi further took potshots at the Congress for the absence of its CM in Punjab to pay respects at the official Jallianwala Bagh memorial yesterday in which the Vice-President of India was also present and said that such actions were not only disrespectful to the martyrs of the massacre but also revealed the petty politics of the Congress leaders. But this is new India.


A new twist in the India-Pakistan conflict occurred when Indian fighter jets conducted "pre-emptive non-military" strikes against alleged Jaish-e-Mohammad terror camps based in Balakot in Pakistan on 26 February in response to the 14 February Pulwama terror incident in which more than 40 Indian paramilitary troops were killed.

Pakistan responded by sending its warplanes toward Indian airspace, leading to a dogfight and the downing of an Indian jet.

As a result of the 56-inch chest narrative, Pakistan has for the first time openly admitted that it has an atom bomb, he added. A dogfight ensued, in which a MiG-21 Bison fighter jet was shot down by Pakistan.

India has long accused Pakistan of supporting militants in Kashmir, a charge its neighbour denies.
