In the backdrop of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said India favours world peace.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's role is being appreciated on the matter. India is peace-lover. India has never attacked any country and never grabbed land of other country.
"We want world peace and everyone should accept it," Rajnath said addressing an election rally here in Bairia.
He said after surgical and air strike on Pakistan India's image changed in the world.
"The power of country has increased. World has got the message that India is not to be trifled with, he said.
He said soon the country will become self reliant in the defence sector and will become an exporter of defence equipment instead of being an importer, which it is now.
He claimed political analysts have come to the conclusion that BJP was going to form next government in the state and people are going to write a new history.
"Now triple engine will run in the state with Modi's vision, Yogi's mission and people's support," he said.
Terming Modi as "true samajwadi', Rajnath said no one has repeated the government in UP but BJP is going to do it.
He alleged that previous governments were riddled with scams and gave patronage to mafia and hooligans.
He also alleged these governments tried to withdraw cases against terrorists.
"There used to be scams in earlier regimes. Be it mining scam, ambulance scam, river-front scam or others but no one can raise a finger against Modi and Yogi government," he said.
Ballia is going to polls on sixth phase on Mar 3.
