‘Weak PM’ would have run away during Pokhran tests: Narendra Modi

Zee Media Bureau

Jaipur: Bharatiya Janata Party leader Narendra Modi addressed a huge rally in Pokhran district of Rajasthan on Friday and said that a government under Vasundhara Raje will be formed.

“Not only in Rajasthan, but in Delhi also a BJP government will be formed in 200 days,” Modi said.

Modi further said that there is a strong BJP wave in the country and it is difficult for the Congress to retain power.

Attacking the Congress, the BJP leader said that the ruling party will be uprooted from the entire nation.

Praising former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee for going ahead with nuclear tests at Pokhran, Modi said that the then NDA government conducted tests and the world saw India's might.

In what can be said as an attempt to mock Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the Gujarat Chief Minister said if we had a weak PM he or she would have got scared on the big day.

“World put sanctions on us. Our country was on one side, the world on the other, but Atalji didn’t get scared and went ahead with the tests at Pokhran,” Modi asserted.

Criticising the government over the issue of missing files related to coal scam, Modi said, “It is a fashion for them to say files are lost. The truth is not only files but the entire government is lost.” Modi accused the Congress of playing divisive politics and said that the ruling party’s policy is divide and rule, whereas BJP believes in unity and development.

“Except vote bank politics Congress does not want to do anything else,” Modi said.

Rajasthan goes to poll on December 01. Results will be declared on December 08.
