Panaji: Giving a strong warning to Pakistan Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday said India would not hesitate to go for a surgical strike, if provoked. It was in view of the recent militant attacks in Jammu and Kashmir he said this.
He also that the BJP would come to power in Goa with a full majority, stating that with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Centre and a BJP government in the state, Goa would be powered by a "twin engine" governance.
"Over the last ten years the BJP government has taken Goa on the path of development. Yesterday I got a call from a journalist. I told him that once again with a full majority the BJP government is coming back to power," Shah said at a foundation stone laying ceremony for the campus of a National Forensic Sciences University (NFSU) in South Goa.
Shah also said that for a region to develop, it needed 20-25 years of continuous non-corruption and a visionary governance, urging people in Goa to back the return of a BJP government in the state.
"If you have five years of development-oriented governance and then five years of corruption-ridden government then development does not go forward... what you need is 20-25 years of continuous good governance, then you can see the changes. At the top Modi is there, but here you have to vote for the return of a BJP government. It will be a double engine government to make Goa an ideal state," Shah also said.
