SUKIRTI MISHRA 09/10/2019 16:48 PM

In his rally in Kaithal in the poll-bound state, Shah said PM Modi had increased India's respect globally.


Haryana. Home Minister Amit Shah while addressing an election rally in Haryana’s Kaithal, said on Wednesday that the Congress had “opposed” Rafale jet’s ‘shastra poojan’ (weapon worship) by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, and the party should ponder over what it chooses to criticise. Amit Shah said, “Modiji brought in the Rafale aircraft and Rajnath ji did its ‘shastra poojan’ in France on Vijayadashmi. But the Congress is opposing that too. I would like to tell them that every night, they should ponder over what needs to be opposed, what not.” 


He further stated Vijayadashmi marks the victory of good over evil and is also the day when weapons are traditionally worshipped. “I would like to thank the Prime Minister and the Defence Minister for inducting the Rafale jets into the Air Force on this significant day, bolstering national security,” he added.


The Home Minister mentioned that “brave land of Haryana” contributes the most number of soldiers to India’s Army. Praising CM Manohar Lal Khattar’s government, the BJP president said Haryana had seen significant change in the past 5 years. Lauding the State over its gender ratio improvement, Shah mentioned that Haryana used to be a bad name for female foeticide. But PM Modi's appeal for ‘beti bachao, beti padhao’ created a positive change. He added, "Today, I would like to congratulate Haryana for showing the biggest improvement in its gender ratio.”
