Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Tuesday in an election rally in Dhanbad said terrorism in the country is now limited only to Kashmir due to strong actions taken by the Narendra Modi government.
“The Narendra Modi government has taken some strong actions due to which terrorism has now been limited only to Kashmir. Earlier, it used to prevail across the country,” the senior BJP leader asserted.
The BJP manifesto 2019 talks about annulling Article 35A of the Constitution of India. Article 35A provides special rights and privileges to the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir.
The international community also recognised India under the Modi government as a “super-power” after the air strike at Balakot in Pakistan, Singh added.
“The world has recognized India as a superpower after the air strike following (the) Pulwama (incident),” the minister said.
In another election meeting at Godda, Singh said India will become the third largest economy in the world in the next five years. The Union minister claimed that the central government has provided pucca dwellings to 1.3 crore people in the country in the last four years.
The BJP government has elevated 7.5 crore families from below poverty line during its tenure and in the next five to seven years, there would not be a single BPL family, Singh said.
Recently, the BJP had credited Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the United Nations designating Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a “global terrorist”, saying India is in safe hands under him.
“India stands vindicated. Masood Azhar is now a global terrorist. India is in safe hands. This marks a high point for the prime minister’s foreign policy,” senior BJP leader and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had said.
