Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said a strong government is needed for speedy development and to steer the nation in the right direction.

“Decisions such as surgical strike and air strike happen when there is a strong government in the country. When the government is strong, India can firmly stand with regard to sensitive issues including Doklam stand-off,” Mr. Modi said at an election campaign in Rajasthan.

The Prime Minister said the party did not acquire the property of those who had gone to Pakistan after partition. “This work should have been done in 1947 but the Congress delayed it due to vote bank,” Mr. Modi said.

Mr. Modi also questioned the will of the Congress against terrorism and said the Party could not stop India’s share of river water flowing into Pakistan.

He highlighted the might of India in the eyes of the world and mentioned the induction of new modern weapons in defence forces. Mr. Modi said the country is leading in the solar energy sector too.
