Speaking at the inaugural session of the Gujarat state BJP executive meeting, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh lauded the defence system of India and said that under the Centre’s security preparations, India has not witnessed any major terrorist attacks in the last seven years. Further, he also assured that the country is well prepared for dealing with such situations in the future.
Further slamming the Congress party and leaders, the Minister said that the Congress has extensively used their surname yet did not achieve anything as such. He further alleged that the party has always focused on prioritising and prospering their own party and the leaders.
Singh also stated that the Congress party and Rahul Gandhi have made Rafale an issue. While the aircraft has already landed in India, Rahul Gandhi is yet to take off. Further, referring to the recent chaos during the Parliament’s Monsoon Session, he said that devoting unnecessary time and energy to the opposition will result in Rahul Gandhi.
Singh did not stop here and further said that Congress has always remained ignorant about small-scale farmers and their plights.
