Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an interview to a leading newspaper on Saturday evening has strongly condemned mob lynching incidents. He said, “mob lynching is a crime, no matter the motive, no person can, under any circumstances, take the law into his or her own hands and commit violence.” “My government is fully committed to upholding the rule of law and protecting the life and liberty of every citizen,” he added.
Defending Rafale deal, PM Modi said the Congress is spreading falsehood and repeating it without any evidence. “It is a government-to-government agreement; it is an honest and transparent deal. All else is nothing but propaganda to undermine national interest,” he added.
Talking on Assam NRC, PM Modi said, “Preventing illegal migrants was a commitment in the Indira-Mujib Accord of 1972 and Rajiv Gandhi-AASU Accord of 1985. It was our promise to the people of India to complete the NRC process. It is not about politics but about people. We are complying with the Supreme Court’s directions and following the procedural fairness as mandated by the Court. The process is on and the list released is only a draft list. “
Speaking on Congress’s Mahagathbandhan, PM Said “A non-ideological alliance of desperate and disparate groups is not a ‘mahagathbandhan’ but political adventurism. It is a failed idea that has never succeeded.
