Jordanian king calls PM Khan, offers mediation to de-escalate tensions with India

At a time the entire country is praying for the safe return of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, with tensions at the border only rising, the BJP, it seems, is busy counting the number of seats the valour of the Indian forces can get for the party in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. But, there is a big difference now - India will no longer be helpless in the wake of terror. Uri happened and you saw what our fearless men did.

"He said while the congress president Rahul Gandhi and congress leadership had been very responsible in their remarks and condemned the terrorist acts, the BJP leadership and PM have been taking full credit for the daring feats of Indian forces in countering the Pak supported terrorist acts and even held Victory rallies".

Training his guns on the opposition parties, Modi said, "Sadly, a few parties, guided by Modi hatred have started hating India. During the conversation, the parties discussed the escalation of tensions between Pakistan and India in recent days", the statement reads. If you see, people are rejoicing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's move and they are celebrating. I want to tell them - Modi will come and go, India will remain.

"Without buckling under the threat of terrorism of the neighbouring country, Modi took Narasimha avatar and decimated hundreds of terrorists which the world lauded", he said at a function here where the Prime Minister dedicated to the nation various highway and railway projects in Tamil Nadu. He said around 1.10 crore farmers received money in their bank accounts under central government programme while more than 15 crore people benefited from the Mudra Loan scheme.

The Rameshwaram-Dhanushkodi rail line was damaged in a natural disaster of 1964 "but for over 50 years no attention was paid to this line", he said. With the town submerged as well, the place was nearly abandoned since.

The PM will also lay the foundation stone for the restoration of Pamban Bridge providing rail link between the main land and the island of Rameswaram.

BSP chief Mayawati and Samajwadi Party supremo Akhilesh Yadav too hit out the Prime Minister for addressing a party programme. While in the state, Modi is also expected to launch a road safety park and transport museum.
