Durg: Home Minister of India Amit Shah visited Chhattisgarh's district Durg on Thursday and addressed a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) supporters public meeting, where he made scathing remark on indecisive Manmohan Singh-led Congress government at the Centre on border security, internal defense system, industrial policy, health and other issues including the intrusion attempts and brutal attack carried out by Pakistan trained terrorists and army.
While addressing the rally at Pandit Ravi Shankar Stadium in Durg, on Thursday Shah said, Pakistan’s 'Aliya, Maliya, Jamalia' beheaded soldiers but the Congress government remained silent. Not only this, Pakistan tried to repeat the same act in Kashmir's Uri and Pulwama, but within 10 days, PM Modi gave them a befitting reply in the form of a powerful surgical strike.
No massive scams in India, peace in Kashmir
In Manmohan-Sonia's 10 years government, India witnessed a scam of ₹ 12,00,000 crore, while in the 9 years of Modi government no such scam was reported nor the opposition accused of such a massive scam, Shah said.
"The Congress kept nourishing Article 370 like a child for 70 years, Shah alleged. Even when Modi ji revoked section 370, Congress Rahul Baba insisted that removal of section 370 will lead to bloodbath in the Valley. But not a single stone was pelted. There is peace in Jammu and Kashmir and the state is moving on the path of development. He asked the audience to tell whether Kashmir is our (part of India or India) or not. The crowd replied, Kashmir is part of India.

Corrupt Congress in Chhasttisgarh
