STATE TIMES NEWS KISHTWAR: Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha and General Secretary AICC, Ghulam Nabi Azad on Monday sought an apology from the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi for trying to mislead the nation about the Congress stand 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 terrorism and infiltration was at its peak during his tenure. He referred to the series of terrorist attacks on the forces in the state & elsewhere and the record number of infiltrations and martyrdom of our Jawans during the Modi regime and said that it 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 terrorism 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. Azad said that Congress always drafted and executed various welfare policies for the poor and common people in order to give a relief and uplift the poor and downtrodden sections of the society. Its economic approach and thrust had always been pro-poor and striking a balance in the society whereas, the Modi government adopted anti poor and pro affluent policies. He said that the promise of Rs 72,000 annually to the poor of this country is a revolutionary step and would be of immense help to eradicate poverty in the country. He appealed to the people to vote for Congress nominee Vikramaditya Singh and ensure the victory of the Congress party for the larger interests of nation.
