AMROHA, UTTAR PRADESH: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said during its two-year rule, the Narendra Modi government has managed to check the incidents of infiltration from across the borders, terror and naxal attacks in the country.
“During our rule, incidents of infiltration, terrorism and naxal attacks have been checked. Also we have been able to reduce such attacks in northeastern states,” Mr Singh said addressing ‘Kisan Swabhiman Rally’ at Narangpur village in the district on Sunday.
“We encourage our security forces by giving them facilities needed to tackle the terrorists,” he added.
Noting that farmers play an important role in formation of governments, he said, the central government is dedicated to fulfilling their needs.
Listing out the achievements of NDA government, Mr Singh said ours is the only government which covered the complete crop loss incurred by farmers under ‘PM Phasal Beema Yojna’.
He promised to reduce the loss of sugarcane farmers by setting up plywood paper mills to consume the poplar wood which is being grown in most parts of western Uttar Pradesh.
Attacking the Akhilesh Yadav government over its “total failure” to tackle law and order situation in the last four years, he said, Jawahar Bag incident of Mathura was an example.
He asked the farmers to give their support to his party in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections just like they did in 2014 general elections.
