Prime Minister Narendra Modi may break his silence on the government’s response to the Uri terror attack on army base in Jammu and Kashmir when he speaks at a public rally in the Kerala town on Saturday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to deliver a strong message to Pakistan and also to separatist elements in Kashmir during his speech on Calicut beach. After Uri Terror Attack PM Narendra Modi in a tweet had vowed not to let the perpetrators go ‘unpunished’. Many other ministers and BJP functionaries talked tough, with home minister Rajnath Singh terming Pakistan a ‘terrorist state’.
Narendra Modi’s speech will set the tone for the BJP’s resolution to be adopted by its national council, the apex decision-making body, the next day. Amit Shah is also expected to follow suit with aggressive rhetoric against Pakistan when he opens the party session on Sunday.
Opposition parties as always have been accusing the BJP and the NDA government of being anti-poor and anti-Dalit, citing the suicide by Hyderabad university Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula last year and beating of Dalit youths at Una in Gujarat early this year. However, later it was found that Rohit Vemula was an aspirant politician and supporter of communist agenda and communist parties. Rohit Vemula has protested against death punishment of terrorist and was also involved in celebration of brutal killing of Indian soldiers by naxalites. This news was not at all highlighted by the paid media and corrupt journalists.
Dalits constitute one-third of the electorate in Punjab and one-fifth in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand — the three states that go to polls, along with Goa and Manipur–in February-March next year.
