'Pakistanis won't dare to cross border when Modi is PM'

April 23, 2014 18:03 IST

Claiming that the country's borders are not safe under the present regime, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Amit Shah on Wednesday said once Narendra Modi becomes the Prime Minister, Pakistani intruders "will not dare to enter" into Indian territory.

"Once Modiji becomes PM, leave incidents of beheading of Indian soldiers, the Pakistani intruders will not even dare to enter into Indian side," Shah said at an election rally in Mirzapur in support of Apna Dal leader and NDA nominee Anupriya Patel.

Attacking the Congress-led UPA government, Shah, a confidant of Modi and in-charge of party affairs in Uttar Pradesh, said not only the soldiers but the country's borders are also not safe under the present regime.

"Whenever the Chinese soldiers want, they come and have picnic inside our territory and our government could do nothing," Shah said.

Earlier, Shah, replying to a question, said that Modi was contesting the Lok Sabha polls from Varanasi not to win elections but to win hearts of the people of the state.

"Modiji is contesting polls not for winning at the hustings, but for winning hearts of the people," he said.

Asked about the economic policy to be adopted if BJP voted to power, Shah said that the policy would be formulated keeping in mind the poor people.
