NEW DELHI: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the Congress has developed such a hatred for him that it was dreaming of killing him even as he maintained that terror factories were working in neighbourhood, a reference towards Pakistan, and they were waiting for a weak Government at the Centre.
In a series of tweets after addressing elections rallies at different places today, the Prime Minister referred to the statement given by a Congress leader that Modi should be delivered such a blow that he gets killed across the border.
“Just think, the Congress had developed such a hatred for Modi that they have started dreaming of killing me,’’ he said.
Sending out a fresh anti-terror message, Modi, without naming Pakistan, said the terrorism factories were active in the neighbourhood and they were waiting for installation of a weak Government at the Centre. He called upon the people not to let this happen (formation of week Government at the Centre) and elect strong Government, which has the capacity and capability to take on the terrorists by striking beyond the boundaries.
He said terrorism is an industry there (in Pakistan) and they are just waiting for a chance (to strike) but added the present Government hasn’t allowed their plans to succeed.
Asserting that the Opposition was soft on terrorism, the Prime Minister said the country can’t let it guard lowered against terrorists. “We are walking on the track of New India. We don’t hit anybody, but don’t spare those who hit us. Whether the threat is inside our across the border, New India will kill the militants,’’ he said, and described the Opposition as soft on terrorism saying our security agencies used to arrest those helping the terrorists but they used to release them for vote bank politics.
Referring to Sri Lankan blasts and decision of Lanka Government to ban television channel of Zakir Naik, Modi recalled that ‘Diggi Raja’, a reference towards Congress leader Digvijay Singh, used to visit his office and heaps lot of praises on him.
“Congress is trying to prove Zakir Naik as messenger of peace. The country will never forgive the villains, who had supported Naik,’ he said.
