PM Modi Rally in Haryana, Rahul Gandhi Haryana Rally Today Updates: Addressing an election rally on Sonipat, PM Narendra Modi stepped up attack on the Congress party for not supporting the decision on Article 370 in the interest of the nation.

In Sonipat, PM Narendra Modi said that Congress leaders have chemistry with Pakistan.

Haryana Assembly Election 2019 Updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday lashed out at the Congress party for not supporting the Article 370 decision taken in the interest of the nation. PM Modi said removal of Article 370 was his real tribute to the brave jawans who have made the supreme sacrifice while protecting the country. Speaking at an election rally in Hisar, PM Modi hailed the contributions of jawans from Haryana in safeguarding the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir. He said the Congress has already accepted defeat in the Haryana assembly elections.

“It was clear in their talks in the video that they were saying that it would be enough if they win 10-15 seats. These are their words and made just before the elections. Those who have already accepted their defeat and gave up the ground can’t do anything for Haryana,” PM Modi said referring to a purported video which went viral a few days ago. The video showed Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ahmed Patel standing outside Parliament building and apparently discussing Congress’ prospects in the state elections.

Earlier, addressing an election rally in Sonipat, PM Modi referred to abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status to say Congress leaders have chemistry with Pakistani leader and therefore they are speaking in a language that is helping the neighbouring side globally. “When we talk of Swacch Bharat or surgical strike then Congress gets stomach ache, and if by chance anyone says Balakot then Congress starts jumping with pain. Pakistan uses them to strengthen their case globally, what sort of chemistry is this?” he said. The Prime Minister also said that corruption was rampant in sports during Congress’ rule. Referring the number of athletes Sonipat has produced, he said, “This region has made India proud in every field, be it fighting in the wrestling ring or fighting against terrorism. Sonipat means Kisan,Jawan aur Pehelwan.” He added that in Congress’s misrule jawans, farmers and athletes were not safe because “Congress indulged in corruption in agriculture and did scams in sport”.
