Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday warned the Pakistani establishment that the sacrifice of 18 soldiers killed in the recent Uri incident would not go waste. Addressing a public rally on the Calicut (Kozihkode) beach in Kerala, Modi said that India would ensure that Pakistan got isolated in the world community. “Unko akele rahne ko majboor kar ke rahenge,” he said. The rally was organised by the BJP, which is holding its national council meeting in the coastal area.
Saying that India and Pakistan came into existence simultaneously in 1947, he asked what was the reason that India was exporting software, whereas Pakistan was exporting terrorists, amidst huge applause. This was Modi’s first public speech after the 18 September Uri attack.
The PM said that Indian soldiers killed as many as 110 terrorists who were trying to sneak into our country in 17 separate incidents in the recent past.
He called upon the people of Pakistan to ask their rulers when they were not able to handle their own regions like PoK, Bangladesh (which later separated from Pakistan), Sindh, Gilgit, Pakhtun and Balochistan, why they were asking for Kashmir. “They are misguiding you by talking about Kashmir,” he said.
The three-day BJP conclave began in Kozhikode with the focus on party ideologue Deendayal Upadhyay’s core idea of “antyodya” and “integral humanism”. The PM is scheduled to launch the year-long centenary celebrations of Deendayal Upadhyay on Sunday on the third and last day of the meeting.
