Telangana BJP MLA Raja Singh, whose comments have often triggered controversies, has hit out at backstabbers who talk about celebrating the deaths of security personnel following the Pulwama attack. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given a free hand to the Army to deal with the situation in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed in a terror attack, he said, addressing a gathering organised by Hindu Janajagrati Samiti in Dhuliya in Maharashtra Sunday.
A video of his speech was released by him to the media. "But, Modi ji, we request with folded hands. The free hand which you gave to the Army, give us a free hand for 10 minutes. Backstabbers and terrorists are there outside the country, many terrorists have taken birth inside the country also," he said.
Singh, MLA from Goshamahal in Hyderabad, claimed that such anti-nationals had been blocked on social media. He said FIR has been registered against 96 people and that some were arrested (on charges related to his allegations).
He slammed those who raise slogans against India and hail Pakistan and Jaish-e-Mohammed in universities. But, to drub the backstabbers who eat in India and sing for Pakistan, Modi ji, give us 10 minutes time, Singh said.
Youth in the country had expected that Pakistan would be given a befitting reply during Modi's tenure, he said. One surgical strike had taken place and another big surgical strike need to happen, which Pakistan would never forget, he said.
