Claiming that the country’s border is far more secure under the NDA government than during the rule of the UPA, BJP president Amit Shah Tuesday said “if anyone attempts to tamper with the boundary, a befitting reply will be given”.

Speaking in Amritsar on the 50th anniversary of the Punjabi Suba Celebrations, Shah said: “The biggest achievement is that this government has secured the boundary of the country. There was an era in this country (when) there was a government of the UPA for 10 years. This was the government of Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi and the Gandhi family. The situation then was that anyone could come, do chhedkhani (tampering) with the boundary of the country, cause great insult.”

“But things have changed in the last two-and-a-half years. Now the world has understood that they cannot tamper with the boundary of Hindustan. If anyone attempts to tamper with the boundary, a befitting reply will be given,” he said.

The BJP president described Punjab as the the land with the “legacy of self-sacrifice… evident in every war, be it 1962, 1965, 1971 or Kargil”. He said “Punjabi soldiers made us proud” with “unparalleled sacrifices for the sake of the motherland”. “I also pay homage to our great heroes like Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Shaheed Udham Singh, Lala Lajpat Rai and others…,” he added.

        Dalali. Yes I agree. More soldiers are killed in the last fortnight than 10 years of UPA rule.
