Press Trust of India Patna
In an indirect snub to the Opposition's criticisms of alleged politicization of the tensions with Pakistan by the BJP, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Thursday asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not need advice from those who have been in favor of going soft on terror.
In an apparent rebuff to demands by parties like RJD, Congress and the CPI(ML) that the NDA cancel the rally scheduled here on March 03, the senior BJP leader said the public meeting would serve as an occasion for the people to demonstrate their support to the Prime Minister and the armed forces.
The nations spirits are soaring in the wake of a befitting reply to Pakistan by the destruction of the nursery of terrorism which was a consequence of Prime Minister Narendra Modis strong leadership, our diplomatic acumen and the valour of the armed forces. In such a backdrop, the people of the country are eager to hear every word uttered by the Prime Minister, the Bihar Deputy CM tweeted.
The NDA rally at Patna on March 03 will serve as an occasion for millions of people of Bihar for demonstrating their support to the Prime Minister and the armed forces, Modi tweeted.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Union minister Ramvilas Paswan would address the rally in Patna on Sunday to launch the ruling coalition's campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in the politically important Bihar having 40 Parliamentary constituencies.
Bowing before Indias military might and successful foreign policy, Pakistan is on its knees and has announced the release of our brave pilot Abhinandan from its captivity. A Prime Minister who had stayed awake till 3 A.M. alongside Indian Air Force commanders during the air strikes, knows how to face tough situations and needs no advice from those who have been in favor of going soft on terror, he said in another tweet.
Notably, a joint statement issued by 21 opposition parties on Wednesday night had accused the BJP of trying to reap political dividends from the escalation of tensions.
Several opposition parties have cancelled their political programmes in the aftermath of escalation of tensions and criticized the BJP for continuing with the same, the latest instance being Prime Ministers interaction with booth-level workers from across the country earlier in the day.
