Modi rally in Tonk: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched an all-out attack on the Congress party as he accused it of not fulfilling its promise of farm loan wavier in Rajasthan within 10 days government formation. Addressing a rally in Tonk, he said that farm loan wavier is nothing but a Congress’ ploy to win elections while his government has taken several measures in last four years to help the farmers.
Speaking about the attacks on Kashmiri students in different parts of the country, PM Modi said that Kashmiri students facing backlash in different parts of country must stop immediately.
“Our fight is against terrorism and enemies of humanity. Our fight is for Kashmir not against Kashmir, not against Kashmiris,” he said.
“What happened to Kashmiri students in last few days, such things should not happen in this country,” the PM added.
This was Modi’s first visit to the state after Assembly polls in December last year when the Congress dethroned the BJP. Rajasthan sends 25 MPs to the Lok Sabha. In the previous general election held in 2014, the BJP had won all seats while Congress drew blank. The BJP is expecting to repeat its 2014 show in the state this time as well and planned extensively to garner public support. BJP president Amit Shah had on February 18 visited Jaipur where he met party workers and reviewed the preparations for the polls.
