BJP National President Shri Amit Shah addresses public meeting in Sonipat, Haryana
  • Expressing confidence of Modi Ji coming back to power Shri Amit Shah said that wherever he goes he finds that people seem to have made up their minds to vote for BJP. “I have come here after travelling all over the country for the last four and half months - from east to west and north to south - and could only hear chants of Modi Modi. This is not mere a chant but the blessings of 125 crore people of the country. People have already decided that the next PM will be Modi Ji.”
  • Modi Ji is the man for whom the country had been waiting for the last 70 years for development to take place in the real sense. I know Modi Ji from close, in last 20 years Modi Ji has never taken even a day's holiday. On the opposite is Rahul Baba who goes on a holiday whenever there is a bit of hot weather and even his mother doesn't' know of his whereabouts, he added.
  • Slamming the Congress, Shah said that Rahul Baba's party ruled the country for 55 long years but could not eradicate poverty. ”They only kept on giving slogans but didn't eradicate poverty. Four generations of is family ruled but poverty removal only remained a slogan. Only Modi ji has taken concrete steps towards this.  Congress remembers the poor only during elections.”
  • Enumerating the achievements of the Modi govt. Shah said that the BJP under the leadership of Modiji has been working hard for all sections of the society especially the poor and the distressed. "In the last five years the BJP did work like providing 7 crore free cylinders to our poor mothers and sisters, electricity in 2.5 crore household, houses for 2.5 crore poor,  toilets in 8 crore household and lots of other work. Now BJP is working to providing country's farmers with interest free loans, pension and several other schemes after coming back to power.” 
  • Praising the Modi government for its universal health scheme he said that the Ayushman Bharat scheme has raised the level of health services for 50 crore of the Indian population and given them access to free health facilities including hospitalization. “Now no one is helpless in case of a medical emergency. In just four months of its launch, as of now 24.5 lakh operations have already been done under the scheme free of cost.”
  • Praising Haryana CM ML Khattar Shah said that the govt led by him has done commendable work in the state.  "Only the BJP government led by Manohar Lal Khattar under Modiji has given good governance to people of Haryana. Earlier there was so much corruption and lawlessness under Hooda and Chautala rule - today one is in jail and one is on bail. On the other hand there has been no corruption charges on Modi Ji when he was CM for long and then as PM. In the last three years great work has been done by Haryana on controlling female infanticide and improving their sex ration above 950 and I congratulate the Nari Shakti of Haryana. 
  • Haryana also did great progress in terms of infrastructure and work was done by the BJP govt on Kundli Manesar Palwal expressway, Gohana bypass and others. Also the state was the first to become kerosene free. Today jobs are being given without any reference unlike earlier times when there was just corruption in this. During Congress rule only 3Ds used to have say – Damaad,Darbaari and Dealer, he added.
  • Elaborating on the efforts of the Modi govt. for Haryana, Shah said that the UPA government gave the state only Rs 22914 crore while in the 14th Finance Commission, the BJP government increased it to a whopping amount of Rs. 117028 crore for the state's development.
  • Hitting out at the opposition Shah said they cannot keep the country safe but only Modi ji whose immediate response against terrorists earned new respect for India and its people. “The biggest achievement of the Modi govt is that of securing the nation against terrorism. Vote for Modi Ji just for this. During Sonia-Manmohan rule terrorists used to enter Indian at will and even cut heads of our soldiers like in case of Hemraj, without any response from the then silent PM Manmohan Singh. After Pulwama strikes Indian Airforce went deep inside Pakistan to Balakot and killed terrorists and destroyed their bases. Modi Ji has a 56 inch chest to take strong decisions for the security of the country.”
  • After the air strike carried by the IAF, there were celebrations everywhere in India, while only at two places there was grief -- one in Pakistan and another in Rahul Baba and company's offices. Were they their cousin bothers?  Rahul baba can talk as much with terrorists but BJP will never compromise on the country's security. BJP's policy is clear that whoever crosses India's boundaries and attacks us with bullets will be responded with cannons, he added.
  • Hitting out at Omar Abdullah for his views that there should be a separate PM for J&K, Shah demanded the opposition's stand on the issue. "We want Rahul Baba and the opposition to clarify if they agree with Omar Abdullah comments that there should be a PM for Jammu and Kashmir. I know they won't say anything on Omar's statement as they are concerned about their vote bank. They follow politics of appeasement and people will punish them in elections. As long as there are BJP workers Kashmir will remain an integral part of the country. We will remove Article 370 from Kashmir after forming the next govt. at the Centre.”
  • Taking on the Congress for promising to remove the anti-sedition law if it came to power, Shah wondered who the Congress and Kejriwal etc were trying to protect. "Who do you want to protect? When anti-India slogans like 'Bharat tere tukde honge hazaar' were shouted in JNU, Rahul Baba and opposition together stood with them in the name of freedom of speech. Such people's place will be in jail as long as BJP is there. How will you put a spy in jail if the anti-sedition act is removed?”
  • Shah exhorted the gathering to help the BJP win the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and bring Modi Ji back to power. “After a long time we have got such a dedicated person as PM, who works long hours each day for the development of the nation. Please elect BJP from most LS seats and bring back Modi govt. once again. Only Modi Ji can keep the nation safe,” he said.
