Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday slammed the Congress for its policies on counter-terrorism.
Adityanath while speaking at a rally in Mathura in the state also attacked Congress loyalist Sam Pitroda for his comments where he gave a clean chit to Pakistan over the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack and the Pulwama terror attack.
"Sam Pitroda has become a shame for the nation. He asked what is the need to kill the terrorists. So they (Congress) are used to feeding the terrorists Biryani, now we feed them bullets. Modi government does not feed terrorists Biryani but feeds them bullets. Only Modi can do this. What was impossible for Congress is possible for Modi because Modi hai toh Mumkin hai," he said.
The BJP launched the party's massive poll campaign on Sunday called the Vijay Sankalp Sabha after the Lok Sabha election schedule was announced. The party will hold 500 events including nine rallies held by 13 ministers conducted by 48 hours across 480 seats.
The rally aims to counter the Congress' stance which has questioned the Indian air-strikes at terror camps in Balakot and their regions across the LoC. The party began with a rally in Sahranpur in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday.
UP CM Yogi Adityanath also spoke about Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar who is reported to be living in Pakistan during the campaign rally.
The UP CM recalling the BJP campaign slogan "Modi hai toh Mumkin hai" which means that things are possible under Modi government, said that Masood Azhar will also be killed in a similar fashion like Al Qaeda's Osama bin Laden.
"Remember the Balakot strike, you heard about Laden. Masood Azhar will also be killed in the same way Laden was killed," he said, adding, "Modi hai toh Mumkin hai."
