Leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha and General Secretary AICC Ghulam Nabi Azad today sought an apology from the Prime Minister Narinder Modi for allegedly trying to mislead the nation about the Congress and against terrorism and issues of National Security by stating that Congress wants to withdraw the forces from Kashmir and compromise the national security, whereas, the Congress is committed to effectively deal with terrorism and plugging the infiltration from across the border.
Blaming the PM Modi for the blatant lie when he said yesterday that Congress wants to withdraw forces from Kashmir and would compromise the national security Azad said it is totally misleading the nation, as the Congress is committed for uncompromising approach to deal with terrorism and further strengthen the security along borders to plug the infiltration, whereas the Modi government failed to contain infiltration, cross border terrorism and control terrorism in Kashmir.
Azad said that Modi government has no right to talk about national security in view of the poor record of his government on this front, as record number of major terrorist attacks over vital Army and security forces installations have taken place during his regime and terror-ism and infiltration was at its peak during his tenure.
He referred to the series of terrorist attacks on the forces in the state and elsewhere and the record number of infiltrations and martyrdom of our Jawans during the Modi regime and said that its speaks of the failure of his government on the issue of national security and its claims to the contrary are falsified.
Azad said that Modi government utterly failed to plug infiltration and contain militancy in Kashmir which is evident from the prevailing security situation in the state and along the borders. The Congress would further strengthen the security along the borders and effectively contain militancy besides taking various peace initiatives to restore normalcy in the state, if voted to power.
Addressing a series of meetings in including Bimal Nag, Batoli, Bhaderwah in Kishtwar and Doda districts today, Azad said that Modi government and BJP has nothing to sell to the electorates about its past promises and on various problems confronting the nation, it is harping on the issue of national security by misleading the nation about the Congress stand and creating sense of insecurity and war hysteria.
