JNS: ‘Modi hai to mumkin hai and nothing is above the nation’, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi adding “he will not let the country down.” I want to assure the people that the country is in safe hands. There is nothing above the nation, he said while addressing a public meeting in Churu, Rajasthan.
“My soul says today is the day to reiterate what I had expressed in 2014. I swear by my land I won’t let my country be destroyed. I will not let the country stop. I will not let the country bow down. I pledge to the motherland that I will not let her head down,” he said.
The Prime Minister, however, did not make a direct reference to the Balakot strikes. In an airstrike following the Pulwama attack, India bombed and destroyed Jaish-e-Mohammed’s biggest training camp in Pakistan early on Tuesday, killing a “very large number” of terrorists, trainers and senior commanders. The operation, described as a non-military, preemptive strike, was welcomed by the entire political spectrum and military experts who had been advocating retribution after the February 14 suicide attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama claimed by JeM.
Addressing the rally, Modi said he was able to work because the party is above individuals and the country was above the party. “Pradhan Sevak is able to work because the party is bigger than individuals and country is bigger than the party. We are working with the feeling to serve the people of the country,” PM Modi said.
