PM Modi questions Congs chemistry with Pakistan

Gohana/Hisar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday lashed out at the Congress over its stand on Article 370, saying its statements are being used by Pakistan against India and asked what kind of "chemistry" it shares with the neighbouring country.

With the BJP making scrapping of Article 370 in J-K a big poll issue, Modi said parties like the Congress could neither understand sentiments of people nor respect sacrifices made by brave jawans.

Addressing a rally here, his fourth one for the October 21 polls, Modi asked the gathering, Should I make decisions in the national interest or not, should national interest be above politics or not? But the Congress is not able to understand this feeling of people of Sonipat and people of Haryana.

Making a stinging attack on the Congress, he said the party is in "pain" since August 5 when the Centre decided to abrogate special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

Do you recall what happened on August 5? On that day such a thing happened which no one could have imagined, about which in a way the country had given up hope. On August 5, India's Constitution in entirety became applicable in J&K. For 70 years, what was stumbling block in the development of J&K and Ladakh, we removed that.

And Congress is suffering from such a disease that when we talk of Swachh India, surgical strike, they have a problem and if anyone takes Balakot's name, their pain increases, he said. He said Pakistan is using statements made by Congress leaders on scrapping Article 370.

Now, the country knows why Congress goes through this pain, for whose sympathy, for whom it is. You have seen the statements Congress leaders made on Kashmir are helping whom, who is taking benefit of such statements and where these are used.

Do you know who is taking benefit of these,? said Modi and when the crowds replied Pakistan, Modi told them you are correct.

Now, Congress should reply why they are making such statements which are being liked by Pakistan. They should muster the courage to say something which is liked by people of India (by supporting the scrapping of the Article), he said.
