Jaipur: BJP chief J P Nadda Thursday said agreements on space, FDI and tech support were signed during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent visit to the USA, unlike in the past when PMs used to discuss terrorism during such tours.
Addressing a rally in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur, he also targeted the rival parties and claimed that the BJP has eliminated dynastic and vote-bank politics.
“While others have become parties of families, in BJP the party is family,” Nadda said.
He said, “Earlier, Indian prime ministers used to discuss terrorism issues during US visits. PM Modi signs agreements on space, FDI, tech support.”
The BJP national president claimed that now while talking about India, no one refers to Pakistan. “Under PM Modi’s leadership, we have achieved the ability to keep the country safe,” he said.
Before addressing the rally, Nadda inaugurated the BJP’s newly constructed party office in Bharatpur in the presence of former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje and other leaders.
Earlier in the day, leader of Opposition in the Rajasthan Assembly Rajendra Rathore, while interacting with reporters in Bharatpur, said, “Uniform civil code is the need of the day. The central leadership will decide on it… There should be one common law for all.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday made a strong push for a Uniform Civil Code, asking how can the country function with dual laws that govern personal matters, and accused the Opposition of using the UCC issue to “mislead and provoke” the Muslim community.
