JAMMU, Aug 1: Lambasting Congress for misleading the people by its wrong and baseless statements about his party and the Government, senior BJP leader and former State president of the party, Ashok Khajuria said the tainted Congress whose leaders are involved in many scams and scandals are afraid of the increasing popularity of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and hence are issuing the baseless statements in desperation.
In a statement issued here, today Khajuria said that despite facing the worst ever crisis caused due to spread of dreaded COVID pandemic, it is Modi Government which took drastic steps in containing the situation by announcing timely lockdown and other measures. He said country is in the safe hands under Modi as he is the first Prime Minister who showed teeth to China as well as Pakistan and did not make compromises like the Congress leader and former Prime Minister, Pt. Jawhar Lal Nehru who gifted vast Indian territory both to China and Pakistan in 1962 and 1947 respectively.
Khajuria said for the first time people of India feel that the nation can give a befitting reply to China as BJP Government has made India defensively very strong. He, while making dig on Congress leadership of spreading canards about installation of toll plazas in Jammu asked the party to explain under whose Government the process of installing the Toll Plazas was started all over the country. If it was a policy started by then UPA Government what right it has to mislead the people on Lakhanpur Toll Plaza.
He said Congress leaders must know that the Governments work in continuity and the policies and plans including economic reforms started during P V Narsimha Rao Government were carried forward by successive UPA and BJP Governments hence Congress should refrain from misleading the people.
Khajuria also complimented the officers for their yeoman’s service to the people in fighting the COVID Pandemic and paid tributes to the senior KAS officer, Tasaduq Jeelani and police Sub Inspector who lost their lives due to the pandemic in Kashmir valley.
