Hisar: Launching a blistering attack on the Congress, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will not let the quota end till the time there is even one BJP MP in the Parliament is sitting, but that it is the “unconstitutional manner” – in which the Muslims were given reservation – that will not be allowed once the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) crosses the 400-seat mark in the Lok Sabha elections . BJP MP, we will not end reservation but we will end reservation unconstitutionally given by Congress to Muslims,” Shah, while addressing the Mahavijay Sankalp Rally in support of BJP’s Hisar- candidate Ranjit Singh on the grounds of Haryana’s Old Government College. said. Storming into Congress, Shah said that “the vote bank of the grand old party is not Haryana, but the infiltrators,” and that for the sake of vote bank, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi “did not come to the Ram Mandir” Pran Pratishtha ceremony. Shah claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has secured a majority by winning 270 seats in the four-phase elections. Now, the NDA has to cross 400 in the fifth, sixth and seventh phases, he added. “The Congress will not even get 40 seats. Congress’ Rahul Baba had started the 2024 elections with Bharat Jodo Yatra and after June 4, Rahul Baba will have to take out Congress Dhundho Yatra,” Shah said. While referring to sports, farmers and army, Shah said Haryana is known for these three areas and in all these three, the previous Congress governments committed scams while the BJP has done remarkable work. He said that today the soldiers of Haryana at the country’s borders and farmers have made the country self-reliant in food grains while the medals here are the highest in any competition. “Congress has been working to eliminate these three areas,” he said. “During the Congress rule, there was the Bofors gun fraud, the Army personnel vehicle scam, the farmers’ fertilizer fraud, the rice fraud and the Commonwealth Games scam. On the other hand, as soon as the BJP formed the government, it implemented One Rank One Pension and deposited Rs 1 lakh 20,000 crore in the accounts of the army personnel. After Independence, the BJP government purchased the maximum grain worth Rs 20 lakh crore at MSP. The BJP government has increased the sports budget three times to build new stadiums, recruit new coaches and increase players’ remuneration. Now Modi will also host the Olympic Games in India in 2036,” said Shah. He said that Rahul Gandhi will go on vacation after June 4, while Modi, on the other hand, has not taken a single day off in 23 years. The Prime Minister even celebrated Diwali by eating sweets with the army soldiers. He said the BJP government is giving a “befitting response” to Pakistan, while the Congress says it “respects Pakistan” because the neighboring country has the atomic bomb. Saying that he is leaving the country of Maharaja Agrasain, he said that “Pakistani Occupied Kashmir (POK) belonged to India and we will take it”.
