National security is punching bag for Congress: PM Modi (VIDEO)
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a blistering attack on the Congress party, saying national security and defence sector were either a punching bag or a funding source for it.
“Sadly, for the Congress, national security and the defence sector is either a punching bag or a source of funding. They looted the defence sector under numerous scams from the jeep scam in the 40s and 50s to the Bofors scam in the 80s and several others like Augusta even after that. They are only concerned about the money even if that damages the morale and safety of our forces”, PM Modi said while interacting with booth level workers from Tamil Nadu’s Kanyakumari.
Modi’s attack on the opposition party came even as the Congress accused the government of “misleading” the Supreme court by presenting wrong information about the CAG report on the Rafale deal and demanded that the government apologise for it.
‘NDA govt kept inflation under control’
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said NDA government has successfully kept inflation under control.
Mr Modi said consistent high inflation was hurting citizens under previous government. The Prime Minister said his government is the most farmer friendly government.
Beginning his interaction, PM Modi praised the Tamil language and culture saying it is one of the oldest in the world.
PM Modi further said, “BJP believes in Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas. We believe that India can only develop when the North, South, East and West all develop equally.”
He highlighted that the Minimum Support Price has been increased to ensure that farmers get at least 150 per cent of the cost of production.
