Attacking the Congress party, PM Modi said, “The government before us pushed the country into darkness. It won’t be wrong if I say that India lost 10 important years (2004-2014) in scams and corruption.” The two-day event, which began Friday, was organised with an aim to lay final guidelines for thousands of party leaders for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The event was inaugurated on Friday by party chief Amit Shah and the Prime Minister, who is to conclude the executive meeting with his valedictory address today.
In his hour-long address, Shah emphasised on a number of government’s measures- especially those related to security, curbing corruption and welfare programmes for the poor and farmers- and attacked the Congress for the dare to target Modi on the issue of graft when its president Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi are on bail in a “case of corruption”.
Earlier, on the second day, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman at the BJP National Convention said, “We have not had one major terrorist attack in this country after 2014. This government under the leadership of PM Modi has ensured one thing that there shall not be an opportunity for terrorists to disturb the peace.”
