Amid simmering tension between India and Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi ignored opposition attacks to address millions of workers of his BJP today.
He however said that “India will fight as one, India will win as one.”
The Prime Minister’s mega event was pitched as the world’s largest video conference.
This comes amid massive criticism from opposition parties in the backdrop of the worst escalation between India and Pakistan in decades.
Incidentally, the PM Modi’s event was aptly named “Mera Booth, Sabse Mazboot”.
The ruling party has been targeted by opposition parties who have accused it of focusing on politics and elections at a time the government should be worried about the tension with Pakistan.
Ties have nosedived and many countries have urged de-escalation of hostilities in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack, in which over 40 soldiers were killed by a suicide bomber of the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed.
“India will stand as one, India will work as one, India will grow as one, India will fight as one, India will win as one,” he said.
