Addressing a political rally here on Wednesday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath alleged that speeches made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi causes his Pakistani counterpart to sweat across the border.
"Today when Prime Minister Modi makes a speech anywhere in India, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan sweats in AC room of Islamabad. He remains worried as to when the Indian army would enter Pakistan and destroy terrorist camps there. This valour and strength has emerged due to the political willpower of Prime Minister Modi," said Adityanath.
The chief minister made these remarks at a rally which was also addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. However, his speech was made before the PM's arrival on the stage.
The UP CM also highlighted various public initiatives of the Centre and said, "Central government has implemented various public friendly initiatives along with developing infrastructure at a rapid pace.
