INDIA alliance has neither a leader nor policy: Amit Shah


Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday attacked the INDIA alliance and its leaders and said that they neither have a leader, nor intention nor any policy and all they have is ‘nepotism’.

Addressing an election rally in support of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Kheri Ajay Kumar Mishra ‘Teni’, the Home Minister said, “You tell me who will be the Prime Minister if INDIA alliance comes to power even by mistake.

Can Sharad Pawar, Mamata Banerjee, MK Stalin, Akhilesh Yadav or Rahul Gandhi become the PM? They don’t have a candidate for the post of PM.”

He said, “When asked by the journalists the leaders of INDIA alliance replied that one by one everyone will get a chance for one year. The country doesn’t run like this. I want to tell Akhilesh Yadav that it’s not a grocery shop, it’s a country which needs strong leadership. And only one person can provide strong leadership, that is Narendra Modi.

Shah said that the people of Congress, Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) were defaming BJP and PM Modi by spreading canard that if the BJP gets 400 seats then the reservation will end. “If anyone committed dacoity on the reservation of the OBCs then it is Congress. They got majority in Karnataka and gave five percent reservation to Muslims from the share of OBCs,” he said.

The Home Minister said, “Give majority to BJP and we will end this ant-Constitutional reservation to Muslims and that share will be given to OBCs. All I want to say is that Congress and its allies in UP are anti-backward and all the OBCs should understand it.”

Shah said that Rahul Gandhi claims that he will alleviate poverty in one go. “I want to say that Rahul Gandhi should first see his track record. His grandmother imposed emergency in one stroke, his father re-introduced Triple Talaq in one stroke and your party snatched the reservation of OBCs in one stroke,” he said.

The Senior BJP leader said that Modi brought the law Citizenship (Amendment) Act to give citizenship to persecuted Hindus, Sikhs and Jains coming from Pakistan. “Shouldn’t these people get citizenship? Now Rahul and Akhilesh say that if elected to power they will remove CAA. I want to tell that no one can remove CAA,” he said.

Shah claimed that the third round of Lok Sabha elections got over on Tuesday and with that PM Modi has crossed 190 seats mark and with the fourth phase BJP and NDA are strongly heading towards 400 mark. “SP, Congress and BSP have been wiped out. This election is all about making Modi the PM for the third time, to make 3 lakh sisters ‘lakhpati’, to give houses to 4 crore poor and make cattle breeders prosperous by setting up dairies in 3 lakh villages,” he said.

Raising the issue of Ram temple in Ayodhya, the Home Minister said that Congress cheated the people for 70 years by making excuses about the court case. “You made Modi PM for the second time, the case was won in five years, bhoomi pujan ceremony of the temple was performed and on January 22 the consecration of Lord Ram was completed,” he said.

He said that before the consecration ceremony Shri Ram Trust invited opposition leaders to attend the event. “But none of them attended the event as they are scared about their vote bank. I would like to tell Rahul and Akhilesh that UP will never stand with a person who is scared of doing the work of Lord Ram.”

Taking a dig at Secretary General of SP Prof Ram Gopal Yadav, he said that the SP leader terms the Ram temple as useless. “I want to tell you that if you make a slight mistake they will put a lock of Babri’s name on the Ram temple,” Shah said.

The Minister said that when SP was in power in UP, mafia and goons used to call the shots and the public land was grabbed. “Today in the Yogi Adityanath government instead of the people, the mafias are forced to migrate out of the state. This is the BJP government,” he said.

He said that Lakhimpur comes in the Terai belt of UP which is also the sugarcane belt and known as the sugar bowl. “When the BJP government came to power at the centre and in the state maximum payment of cane was done by PM Modi. 20 closed mills were re-started, 5 new mills were set up, capacity of 38 others was expanded and the cane area increased by 9 lakh hectares,” Shah added.
