Pakistan had bombs in hand, now begging bowl: PM Modi | India News

AMBALA/GOHANA: Troublemaker Pakistan has been reduced from brandishing bombs to begging bowls, PM Narendra Modi said Saturday during his first rally in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections in and around Ambala of Haryana – a state he likened to his own govt with the Haryanvi expression “dhakad” (strong).
“Pakistan, which troubled India for 70 years, kept bombs in its hand.Today, it has a begging bowl in its hand. The enemy shivers when a dhakad govt is in office,” Modi said, underscoring the neighbouring country’s economic crisis and India’s growth. The PM said his “dhakad” govt abrogated Article 370 and J&K started walking on the path of development.
INDI alliance and all their members have lost in all four corners of the country in the four phases of voting so far, he said, while accusing Congress of scams tied to India’s military, referencing Bofors howitzer, submarine, and helicopter deals. He alleged that “our soldiers did not even have good rifles”. Without directly naming opposition parties, Modi accused them of conspiring to distribute people’s wealth to “jihadis”.
Referring to the one rank one pension (OROP) demand of ex-military personnel, Modi said previous Congress govt made a provision of mere Rs 500 crore for OROP and started spreading misinformation that they fulfilled the demand. “I completed the promise,” he claimed. He also underscored his govt’s commitment to farmers – an influential constituent in an agrarian state that had witnessed farm unrest, including against the now-scrapped agriculture laws.
