26 Nov : Raising pitch on terrorism in poll-bound Delhi, BJP accused the Congress-led govt of "branding" the army as a "terrorist" outfit in a veiled reference to the arrest of a serving army officer in the Malegaon blasts case.Addressing his sixth election rally in the city, the saffron party’s firebrand leader and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi said Congress is taking up what Pakistan had failed by "spending crores of dollars" to portray Indian Army as indulging in terrorist activities.
Modi said Pakistan has been telling the international community that Indian Army was "indulging in terrorist activities. The foreign countries have refused to believe their claims.
Continuing campaigning for the second day on Wednesday, Modi, addressing the meeting in south west Delhi’s Najafgarh, asked voters to get rid of "aged" Congress which cannot fulfil the dreams of youth.
"Congress is a burden which do not have a leader or policy that could lead the country to better fortunes. The time has come to put a lock on Congress so that it could not be opened again," Modi said.
Claiming that Mahatma Gandhi had expressed his wishes for the disbanding of Congress after attaining freedom, Modi said the 125-year-old "aged Congress cannot carry on the aspirations of youth and could not change their fortunes".
"If you can get rid of the Congress, it is better for the country," Modi said asking people to "vote first on November 29 and then have breakfast on that day".
He said people in Uttar Pradesh had "thrown Congress in the dustbin 20 years ago" while the same happened in Tamil Nadu 30 years ago.
"Congress is also nowhere in Bihar or West Bengal," he added.
