Congress manifesto speaks Pakistan's stand on Kashmir: PM Modi in Maharashtra rally

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray will share a stage on Tuesday while campaigning for their alliance in the 17th Lok Sabha elections.

BJP supporters have sought the removal, expressing anger at many Kashmiris' resistance to rule by India, which, for three decades, has battled an armed insurgency in the region also claimed by Pakistan. "Congress is responsible for Pakistan coming into existence", Modi said, as he stepped up attack against the grand old party.

Earlier in the day, the BJP 's 43-page manifesto has introduced a number of perks for women in its Lok Sabha election manifesto which was released today by PM Narendra Modi, along with the BJP's top leadership including Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley.

Slamming Congress-NCP alliance for backing separate PM for Jammu and Kashmir, Modi said, "The country has no expectations with Congress party but Sharad sahab you!"

"Had Congress leaders acted wisely during the pre- independence era, this Pakistan would not have born", Modi said.Modi said the Congress party's manifesto speaks the same language as that of Pakistan.

Mr Modi capitalized on this outpouring of anger, vowing a "fitting, jaw-breaking reply", as he launched air strikes in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir.

Modi was referring to National Conference leader Omar Abdullah's remark in this connection.
