Addressing a public meeting after unveiling the statue of Sarvodaya leader Jayprakash Narayan, Modi alleged that vote bank politics prevented the UPA government in taking action against the neighbouring Pakistan and that is why it is using army to take action against Pakistan.
He asked why political leadership was so weak and asked chiefs of the armed forces to talk of options to strike against Pakistan.
“It is the job of political leadership to talk on strike on Pakistan and for the first time after independence, chiefs of the three wings of armed wings are being used for making attacks on Pakistan,” Modi said.
“If the Central Government granted me permission to speak on its behalf, I am ready to take on Pakistan,” Modi said.
