“Congress talks about abolishing sedition law but on coming back to power, the BJP will make it so stringent that no one would dare to act against it,” the home minister said addressing an election rally at BLJ ground in Mirzapur in favour of alliance partner Apna Dal’s Anupriya Patel on Tuesday.

“Our forces finished off terrorists in air strikes after the Pulwama attack but the Congress people are asking for the number of those killed. Braves do not count bodies, vultures do,” he said.

Attacking the Congress president, the home minister said Rahul Gandhi is talking about party’s proposed ‘NYAY’, whereas from Jawahar Lal Nehru to Sonia Gandhi, they had been raising the slogan of ‘garibi hatao’ (eliminating poverty).

On the Bahujan Samaj Party-Samaj Party alliance, he said, the two parties have come together as they are afraid of the popularity of Prime Minister Modi.
