Bhadrak: Maintaining that no one can question the ‘Niyat’ and ‘Iman’ of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister and senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh on Sunday said that “Desh ka chowikidaar pure hai, uska do baara PM ban na sure hai (Country’s guard is pure and to make him PM again is sure).
Congress president Rahul Gandhi has been repeatedly hurling the “chowkidar chor hai” (the guard is a thief) jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP in the context of the Rafale fighter jet deal.
“Our politics is not to make Government, it’s to make society. Chowkidar is not chor, he is pure. In the ensuing elections, BJP will win for sure and cure all the problems,” said Singh at a public meeting at Ranital in Bhadrak district.
He alleged that the Congress is spreading lies on Rafale deal.
Hitting out at the State Government here, Singh wanted to know from Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik why Odisha is lagging behind though a stable Government is ruling the State for a so many years.
“Mr Chief Minister, the people of Odisha want to know why our Odisha is lagging behind from other States in the country despite having a stable Government,” said Singh, urging the CM to visit BJP-ruled States to witness how development is taking place there.
He also wondered Odisha Government’s decision to ignore Ayushman Bhrat scheme of the Narendra Modi Government.
Before addressing the public gathering, Singh observed a two-minute silence in memory of the CRPF jawans martyred in the Thursday’s terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir.
Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan among many senior party leaders also spoke.
