JAMMU, May 26: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said jihadis across the border (Pakistan) are supporting the INDIA bloc partners including Congress and Samajwadi Party and prayers are being offered in the neighbouring country for their success.
Addressing three massive election rallies at Ghosi, Deoria and Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh, Modi said the INDI Alliance partners have been saying that they will re-impose Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir if they come to power.

“Jihadis across the border are supporting INDI Alliance of Samajwadi Party and Congress. Prayers are being held for them in Pakistan,’’ Modi said, adding that the Congress and SP are making an appeal for “vote jihad’’.
“This (INDIA bloc) group is saying that if they come to power, they will reimpose Article 370 in Kashmir. They will repeal the CAA (Citizenship (Amendment) Act) which gives citizenship to the victims of Partition. Whose agenda is this… This is what these anti-India forces want?” the Prime Minister said.
Modi said the INDIA bloc agenda is not the development of India.
They want to take back the country by several decades, he added.
“The Samajwadi Party used to release captured terrorists and its Government used to suspend police officials for catching terrorists,” the Prime Minister said.
Asserting that the Congress created “roadblocks” for countries that wanted to purchase the BrahMos missiles, Modi said there has been a demand for these missiles in many countries but the Congress does not like it. “Many countries wanted to purchase the BrahMos but the Congress Government created hurdles because the ‘INDI’ people do not want India to become self-reliant in the defence sector,” he added.
He declared that the day is not far when BrahMos missiles will also be made in Uttar Pradesh.”
Modi said the “INDI jamaat” has been abusing him for his opposition to reservation on the basis of religion.
“First, the people of INDI Alliance will change the Constitution and write in it afresh that reservation should be given on the basis of religion in India. They will end the reservation given to SC, ST, and OBC . They will also give the entire reservation to Muslims on the basis of religion,” he said.
PTI adds: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said during the SP Government, mafias had built palaces on public land. But since Yogi Adityanath has come (as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh) the environment has changed. Now, the ‘acche din’ (good days) of mafias are over. Houses of the poor are being built in place of their palaces. This is the difference between the BJP and the INDI Alliance,” he said.
“I want to remind you that in 2012, the SP in its manifesto had stated that Muslim should get reservation equal to that of Dalits. The INDI jamaat wants to change the Constitution for this. When I ask them (about reservation) they abuse Modi,” he said, adding he is opposing reservation on the basis of religion.
The people of the Purvanchal region will punish them for these, he said.
Referring to previous poll manifestos of the SP and the Congress, Modi said, “In 2012 (Assembly polls), the SP had clearly written in its manifesto that the reservation that Babasaheb gave to Dalits, similar reservation will be given to Muslims.”
The Congress declared educational establishments as minority institutions and gave reservation to Muslims there, he claimed.
“Before 2014, the Congress changed the law overnight to declare schools, colleges and Universities as minority institutions. They declared thousands of educational institutions as minority institutions. Earlier, the reservation SC, ST and OBC students were getting there was completely ended and Muslims got reservation,” Modi said.
“What can be a bigger betrayal than this of the sons and daughters of Dalits, backward tribals?” Modi asked and added that the INDIA bloc wants to “take back the country by several decades”.
Referring to the Ram temple in Ayodhya, the Prime Minister said people from across the world are visiting it for a ‘darshan’ of Ram Lalla. But those of the SP and the Congress rejected the invitation for the temple’s consecration ceremony, Modi said.
“They pretend to go to temples during elections. But these people started abusing the Ram temple when such a grand festival (consecration ceremony) of our faith came after 500 years. These people were angry with the construction of the Ram temple,” he said.
He also claimed that these opposition parties talk about reversing the verdict in the Ram temple case just as it was done in the Shah Bano case.
