With Pakistan being still adamant on handing over the JeM chief who is the mastermind behind Pulwama attack which claimed the lives of over 40 CRPF soldiers, India has already prepared for war if Pakistan denies peace talks.
PM Modi, who warned Pakistan of dire consequences on Thursday had direct dialogue through the “world’s largest video conference” with about around one crore BJP workers, and volunteers. The video conference is part of BJP’s ‘Mera Booth Sabse Mazboot‘ where Modi said the enemy is making attempts to disbalance our nation and India will live as one, grow as one and fight as one.
The PM also emphasized that India will fight, live, work and win as one and nobody can create hurdles in its march towards development. He also added that it is necessary to ensure that nothing is done to dent the morale of the security forces.
Earlier, in his tweets, Modi had asked them to donate to BJP and boost its morale. “On 28th February, I look forward to interacting with crores of Karyakartas (party workers), spread across more than 15,000 locations,” Modi said, adding that the hardworking workers were the biggest asset of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Reacting on the situation, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to postpone his mega video-conference with BJP workers, saying the nation’s energy must be spent on getting the IAF pilot back from Pakistan’s custody. In a tweet, Kejriwal also asked the prime minister to “sternly” deal with Pakistan.
“I wud urge the PM to postpone this. At this moment, we as a nation, need to spend all our energies and time to get the IAF pilot back safely and to sternly deal wid Pak (sic),” he wrote on the microblogging site while the sharing BJP’s announcement of the programme on Twitter.
Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav also lashed out at the BJP for going ahead with Modi’s address to party workers. In a tweet, the SP chief said, “When the entire nation is standing along with the government as an Indian rising above politics, BJP is going to make a record of contact with booth-level workers ..even the BJP supporters are ashamed of this. The situation could be very bad but this suited-booted BJP will continue with its festivities…condemnable.”
The Congress alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has “misplaced priorities” and that he was “desperate only for re-election”. The party’s chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, in a tweet, alleged that the prime minister was “hell-bent on creating a video conference record” when the entire country was praying for the return of its braveheart pilot.
