Addressing a public gathering, the Prime Minister hit out at those who questioned the government over casualties in the recent air strike at JeM camp in Balakot, Pakistan.

PM Modi also slammed those who allegedly supported Imran Khan’s position of dialogue. He said that the Congress which did nothing in the past despite several provocations cannot be expected to take action against terrorism in future.

He further listed out his government’s various programmes undertaken in the last five years. BJP workers, mainly from tribal-dominated Dhar and Ratlam-Jhabua Lok Sabha seats have taken part in the Vijay Sankalp rally.

As per the schedule, PM Modi reached Indore by a special aircraft in the afternoon and then left by helicopter for rally venue in Dhar. The public meeting will be held at PG College in Dhar. Earlier, PM Modi was slated to address rallies at Itarsi and Dhar on February 15 and 16, respectively, but they were cancelled in the wake of the February 14 Pulwama terror attack. Meanwhile, strict security arrangements have been put in place in view of the Prime Minister’s visit.
