PM Modi uses Pakistan’s Pulwama boast to roast rivals at home
KEVADIA (NARMADA): Armed with a Pakistan federal minister’s admission in parliament that the February 2019 Pulwama attack was the Imran Khan government’s doing, PM Narendra Modi on Saturday tore into rivals at home who, he said, had indulged in “dirty politics” even as the nation mourned the loss of 40 CRPF personnel.
“Now that the Pakistan parliament has admitted to the truth, all such people stand completely exposed. What they said and did in the wake of the Pulwama attack are glaring examples of the extent to which such people can go for their selfish interest and ego,” he told a gathering of probationary civil servants under the giant Statue of Unity in Gujarat’s Kevadia.
The PM said he had then “silently tolerated” the allegations levelled at his government because he was too pained by the deaths to respond.
His comments came two days after Pakistan’s science and technology minister Fawad Chaudhry touted his government’s role in the terror attack as a “major achievement”.
Putting national interest above everything else, Modi appealed to his adversaries to “eschew such politics” since it neither serves the purpose of nation-building, nor benefits the parties themselves. “Merely for petty political motives, you are knowingly or unknowingly playing into the hands of anti-India forces and becoming their pawns,” the PM said, also reminding them of how this impacts the morale of the armed forces and drives a wedge through the country’s unity.
“Some countries are openly supporting terrorism. They have now become a cause for global concern. Terrorism and violence serve no good, and the need of the hour is to unite with the inherent Indian values of peace, harmony and mutual respect preached by the likes of Budhha and Gandhiji.”
Alluding to the ongoing border stand-off with China, he said the NDA government was not just determined to stave off the threat but also adequately equipped to give a befitting response to anyone eyeing India’s territory.
He said the country’s defence sector was fast becoming “atmanirbhar (self-reliant)” in keeping with its evolved world view and standpoint on border issues. “Our jawans are building hundreds of kilometres of roads, bridges and tunnels,” he said.
Earlier this month, the PM had inaugurated the 9.02km Atal Tunnel built at Rohtang in Himachal Pradesh by the Border Roads Organisation. It is currently the world’s longest all-weather highway tunnel and connects Manali to Lahaul-Spiti.
Won’t accept any attempt to unilaterally change LAC: Jaishankar
NEW DELHI: India will not accept any attempt to unilaterally change the Line of Actual Control (LAC) said foreign minister S. Jaishankar on Saturday evening. The pandemic, he said, had put “severe stress” on the India-China relationship.
Delivering the Sardar Patel Memorial Lecture, he said, ties with China had been stable for three decades, “as the two nations addressed inherited challenges and new circumstances. ”
“Peace and tranquillity in the border areas provided the basis for expanded cooperation in other domains. But as the pandemic unfolded, the relationship has come under severe stress. To restore normalcy, agreements between the two countries must be respected scrupulously in their entirety. Where the Line of Actual Control is concerned, any attempt to unilaterally change the status quo is unacceptable.”
India, Jaishankar said, “will approach the world in a more proactive way in the aftermath of the pandemic.”
“Indian diplomacy will be more integrated with our defence and security needs, more supportive of our economic and commercial interests, more aware of our technology capabilities and offerings, and more sensitive to the diaspora.”
Acknowledging the difficulties of two civilisations, India and China, growing side by side, Jaishankar said, “the relationship cannot be immune to changes in the assumptions that underpinned it.”
“Large civilizational states re-emerging in close proximity will not have naturally easy ties. Their interests are best served by a sustained engagement based on mutual respect and mutual sensitivity.”
EC action against BJP’s Imarti Devi over poll code violations
NEW DELHI: The Election Commission on Saturday imposed a 24-hour campaign ban on BJP leader Imarti Devi due to poll code violations.
“BJP leader Imarti Devi has been barred from holding, anywhere in MP, public meetings, public processions, public rallies, roadshows and interviews, public utterances in media in connection with ongoing elections for one day on November 1,” the poll panel said.
Earlier this week, the election commission had issued a notice to Imarti Devi, who is contesting a bypoll in Madhya Pradesh, for allegedly describing an unnamed political rival as “insane” and making remarks against women members of his family.
Devi, who is also a minister in the Madhya Pradesh government, did not name the political rival in a video on social media.
According to the transcript of the video, Imarti Devi said after the person left the chief minister’s post in Madhya Pradesh, he became “insane” (pagal).
Devi was involved in another incident earlier when senior Congress leader Kamal Nath called her an “item” during an election rally. Following his remarks, Nath was served a notice by the EC and later removed as Congress’ “star campaigner”.
Bypolls to 28 Madhya Pradesh assembly seats will be held on November 3.
