AMBALA, May 18: Making a strong pitch for re-electing a strong government, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that bombs in Pakistans hands have now been replaced by a egging bowl.
The PMs comments come in the wake of an old video of Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar surfacing in which he is heard saying India should give respect to Pakistan because it has an atom bomb, and a similar remark by Farooq Abdullah of the National Conference, which is also an INDIA bloc member.
Addressing a rally in Haryanas Ambala on Saturday, PM Modi said in Hindi, "When the country has a strong government, even the enemy thinks 100 times before doing anything. You can see that the same Pakistan which was troubling India for 70 years and held bombs in its hands, now holds a egging bowl. When there is a strong government, this is how the enemy trembles."
Continuing in the same vein, PM Modi asked whether a weak government would have been able to change the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
"Think back to those days when there was a Congress government and courageous mothers in Haryana would remain worried all the time about an explosion being triggered by terrorists or a stone thrown (by protesters) injuring our soldiers. Its been 10 years now and, hasn all this stopped," he asked the crowds, adding, "Modis stronggovernment demolished the wall of Article 370, and Jammu and Kashmir is now on the path of development.
Article 370, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, was abrogated in 2019.
In an old video that surfaced recently, Congress Mani Shankar Aiyar had said, "India should give respect to Pakistan as it has an atom bomb. If we don give them respect, they will think of using an atom bomb against India... You should talk to them. But, instead, we are flexing our military might."    —NDTV
