Press Trust of India  |  Bengaluru 

Taking a swipe at the opposition grand alliance for not naming the Prime Ministerial candidate, Tuesday wondered how they expected to run the country without a leader if they came to power and said the nation would be safe from terror attacks only if Narendra Modi was once again installed in the post.

"Can Mahamilavat- and JD(S) keep the country safe? Can they give a befitting reply to terrorism and They cannot keep this country safe.

To keep the country safe BJP has to come to power with as once again," Shah said addressing a rally at Davangere.

The he had travelled extensively across the country during the last four months and had only heard the slogans of 'Modi, Modi' and said the party had decided to strenghten the country by making again.

"On the one side BJP and all parties of NDA are ready to face this election under the leadership of We have decided that once BJP gets majority will become once again.

On the other side there is Rahul baba ( Rahul Gandhi) and company. I ask them who their Prime Ministerial is, they dont answer me," he said.

"...if their Mahamilavat alliance government is formed, Mayawati will become Prime Minister on Monday, Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday, Wednesday-Deve Gowda, Thursday- Chandrababu Naidu, Friday- Sharad Pawar, Saturdey- Mamata didi and on Sunday the country will go on holiday," he added.

Shah was in Davangere to campaign for BJP and former Union Minister G M Siddeshwara, pitted against H B Manjappa of

Noting that the biggest achievement of the Modi government was securing the county from terror attacks, Shah referred to the Pulwama terror attack which killed 40 CRPF jawans and said the government had given a fitting reply through airstrikes and 'decimated' terror camps by entering Pakistani territory.

Hitting out at the opposition which said dialogue was the best way forward with Pakistan, he said "Congress says talk to Pakistan, (of overseas wing of Congress) says talk to them, dont bomb them.

I want to ask people of Davangere, do we have to talk to terrorists who killed 40 of our soldiers? Do we have to bomb them or speak to them?

Warning of a strong response on any 'misadventure,' he said "Friends ...BJPs policy is clear if goli (bullet) comes from side, gola (bombshell) will go from here, eet ka jawaab pattar se diya jayega..." he added.

Taking a jibe at former former Jammu and Minister for his statement on separate Prime Minister for the state, Shah asked "Can there be two Prime Ministers in a country?"

"I want to tell you one thing, let Rahul baba believe whatever he wants, let his partner believe whatever he wants, until there is life in the last BJP karyakartas body, no one can separate from Hindustan. is ours.this is BJPs strong decision."

Taking a dig at Congress-JD(S) coalition government in Karnataka, Shah alleged that Congress was indulging in corruption through remote control by making someone from JD(S), which won the least number of seats in the assembly polls last year, the Minister.

"During the assembly election JD(S) got least number of seats, while BJP got a majority. But look at the feat of the Mahamilavat people, the party that got the least number of seats, Congress made that leader the and is indulging in corruption through remote control."

Recalling that had said that people of the state did not make him the Chief Minister, but Congress chief and who made him occupy the top post, Shah said, he (Kumarasswamy) should be ashamed for lowering the dignity of his office.

Highlighting the differences and disgruntlement within the ruling coalition, he said they cannot do good for

"For Congress Karnatakas development is not important, for Congress is the of corruption from where they keep getting funds," he added.
