  • I didn’t do Balakot, jawans did: PM Modi
 

Speaking at a town hall meeting in Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the country does not need more rajas and maharajas.

Responding to a question,PM Modi said, “Country does not need rajas and maharajas. It makes me happy that the spirit behind chowkidar is expanding. I have taken the corrupt to jail till now. After 2019, they will be behind bars.”

 

“Some people don’t have faith. And those who have limited thinking they feel that chowkidar has…. A uniform, cap and whistle,” PM Modi said in New Delhi today.

 

“I have faith in the Indian Army. They will never do work that will cause shame. I have faith in them and in their discipline,” Modi said.

PM Modi said that he received support from the entire nation over the last five years. “Today, everyone here is a chowkidar. Today, I want to spend some time with you chowkidars,” he said, adding, “In this 2019 election, every chowkidar is fighting with me. I believe that people of country are like chowkidars.”

Addressing voters in Talkatora stadium, PM Modi said that in 2013-14, when the campaign for polls was underway, “I was new for India. I was just known as a chief minister. My critics had basically promoted me at that time. I thank them because this is how the people started knowing me and were curious about me. The BJP gave me a responsibility and I was made a chowkidar”.

When asked what would he have done if the Balakot strike had failed, PM Modi said, “Balakot I didn’t do. The jawans of the country did it. Our security forces did it. I salute them.”

“They have been saying that there are no terror camps. Now they have to hide it. They are not allowing anybody to go there. We’ve been told Balakot area is being reconstructed by Pakistan to show that a school is being run there, so that people can be taken there and shown that no terror camp existed there,” PM Modi said.

PM said Pakistan is in a fix because if it acknowledges the air strikes he said that Pakistan will have to accept that there was a terror camp there. Modi said he “took a decision for Balakot as the ‘game’ should be played from where terror is remote-controlled.”

“If I wanted to politicise the issue and if I had to seek my benefit, then Modi was not required to be Prime Minister of the country,” he said.

Those abusing Modi on Balakot air strikes are helping Pakistan with their statements, PM Modi said.

When asked a question about corruption, Modi said, “Your anger is justified. The one who’s have looted the country will have to return every penny.”

We have wasted a lot of time over India-Pakistan… Pakistan apni maut marega, usko chor do. (Pakistan will die it’s own death, leave it alone),” PM Modi said.

If America and china did strike boldly, why should we do it secretly? The opposition should use sabood sadharan budhi. If opposition has sleepless nights, then it’s their problem,” PM Modi said.

The main ‘Bhi Chowkidar’ event was beamed across the country at 500 places where gatherings of BJP workers, professionals, chowkidars (watchmen), traders, farmers among others will listen to Modi and interact with him through video-conferencing.
