Terrorists on the run due to Modi govt’s policies: BJP

Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said many problems of Jammu and Kashmir are the legacy of the Congress and its role in creating complications in the state is "too well known". The Congress leader had earlier in the day said Kashmir is "burning" due to the government's policies.

The BJP on Friday criticised Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi over his allegations against the Modi government on its Kashmir policy, saying these are “absolutely incorrect and utterly irresponsible” and terrorists are on the run due to its tough measures.

Hitting out at Gandhi, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said many problems of Jammu and Kashmir are the legacy of the Congress and its role in creating complications in the state is “too well known”. The Congress leader had earlier in the day said Kashmir is “burning” due to the government’s policies.

Reacting to it, Prasad told PTI, “His allegations are absolutely incorrect and utterly irresponsible. Because of highly proactive measures taken by the Modi government with the state government’s cooperation, terrorists are on the run today.”

Security forces have an upper hand now, he said, claiming that the government had taken tough measures against illegal flow of funds, terrorists and separatists. Pakistan stands isolated in the world today, Prasad said, noting that the US had called it a safe haven for terrorists.

He credited the central government’s diplomatic and pro-active steps for the development, including freezing of funds meant for Pakistan.

He said the people of the state trusts the Modi government and it was “evident” from the fact that many young people were joining armed forces and the state police and becoming central government officers.

    There is no role of Mod sahib for eradicating or eliminating of Pak trained terrorists in Kashmir. It is our armed forces who are facing bullets. This government is boasting about the bushes and this Government is a club gossipers Let Mr. Ravi Shankar spend a couple of nights at the border states and he will come to know how the terrible situation people of the border state are facing. Armed forces are not only working for the last three years but they are working under various governments including NDA.This armed force has its own rules and regulations and advice is not required from these corrupt politicians who have won election exploiting EVMs, use of black money religious sentiments and exploiting the very petty issue like electricity issue on the Temple or Masque Grave yards of Muslims or cremation grounds of Hindus Diwali Eid festivals.. Mrs Gandhi was much stronger politically wiser than present PM.and able to divided Pakistan in two parts. Losing faith day by day

          Full of lazy ministers in the central government. None of them are good. Only Modi is working and since he cannot be everywhere at the same time, he appoints mouth pieces like prasad, smriti and others to talk on behalf of him. When did you last see Modi holding a press conference in 3 years. Does he have the guts to face the reporters ? No. not at all.

            Instead of finishing off the bees in the hive, Modi has fingered them and now running helter skelter. Yes they are on the run but the only thing is that they are running after the country and creating trouble to the peace and harmony of our country. Cant you see that !!
