"PM Narendra Modi works for 18 hours a day, but Rahul Gandhi...": Amit Shah
Jharkhand : Taking a jibe on Rahul Gandhi, BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a working schedule of 18 hours per day but the Congress president goes on a vacation every 2-3 months.
"I have been working with Modiji since Gujarat, for the twenty years that I have known him he has not taken even a day's leave from work. On the other hand, you have Rahul baba, who goes for international vacations every two-three months leaving his party leaders, workers, and even his own mother worried," he said while addressing a poll rally in Jharkhand's Palamu.
Talking over the national security, Amit Shah said that Pakistan never got a befitting reply from India till the time Congress was in power.
"My heart still pains when I remember the cowardly attack when Pakistani soldiers mutilated the body of Hemraj (an Indian soldier) and disrespected him by kicking his decapitated head when Congress was in power. Yet, the UPA did nothing, Manmohan Singhji stayed silent as usual," he claimed.
In 2013, Lance Naik Hemraj was killed and his body was mutilated by Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) along the Line of Control (LoC).
Jharkhand will be casting their votes on April 29, May 6, 12, and 19 in the remaining four phases of the Lok Sabha elections. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
