New Delhi: Addressing the BJP National convention in the national capital, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday asked BJP workers to create awareness about Modi government’s achievements.

She said that Modi government has provided ‘corruption-free’ five years and no major terror attack has taken place during this period.

“BJP workers should highlight two things. First, that there has been no major terrorist attack after 2014. All attempts to wreak havoc in the country have been eliminated at the border itself and this government has ensured that there are no opportunities
for terrorists to disturb peace.

“And second, that we have had corruption-free five years. There has not been even a whisper of corruption in this government,” Sitharaman said.

Addressing the workers, senior BJP leader said that some Congress leaders are playing dirty politics by seeking help from Pakistan to remove Prime Minister Modi’s government. She said BJP is against this type of dirty politics.

“We showed them the proof. And it was the same opposition — some leaders of the Congress — who went to Pakistan seeking help to remove Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This is the kind of dirty politics that the Congress plays.”

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman hands over 'Made in India' engines to Army“Pakistan is today isolated in the world arena due to Prime Minister’s diplomacy and his ability to maintain relations with all countries. He has built relations with the leaders of the world. Pakistan is feeling the heat today and unofficial (terror) groups supported by Pakistan wreaking havoc in the country are being stopped right at the border,” she added.
