Kanyakumari: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing a public meeting in Tamil Nadu’s Kanyakumari on Friday said, “India’s first defence minister is from Tamil Nadu and IAF pilot Abhinandan is also from Tamil Nadu, we are proud of them.”
Talking about ‘Make in India’, PM said he flagged off the fastest train Tejas between Madurai - Chennai and it is a great example of 'Make in India', having been manufactured in the Integral Coach factory of Chennai itself.
Slamming the Opposition, PM said after 30 years, a stable government with parliamentary majority was formed. People wanted honesty not dynasty, security not surrender, opportunities not hurdles. Citizens wanted progress, not policy paralysis.
“In 2014, people’s message was clear - they wanted a government that takes bold and tough decisions,” said Modi.
Continuing to criticise the opposition, Modi said when 26/11 happened, India expected action against terrorists but nothing happened. When Uri and Pulwama happened, everyone saw what our brave soldiers did.
“Sadly, a few parties, guided by Modi hatred have started hating India. The world is supporting India’s fight against terror but a few parties suspect our fight against terror,” said PM Modi.
Modi said those few parties are the same people whose statements are helping Pakistan and harming India.
“They are the same people whose statements are being happily quoted in Parliament of Pakistan and in the radio of Pakistan. I want to ask them- do you support our armed forces or suspect them?” he added.
