There was also a Muslim. He said that I am listening to your mercy, Allah is your mercy. There was also a wrestler, when his turn came, he said, I am hearing something else.

Modi while addressing Shashi Tharoor said, "There have been repeated talk of saving the constitution. I also agree. Congress should say this a hundred times a day. It is important for that because when, what happened to the constitution , You know all this. By speaking this you will realize your mistakes. Those who take away the right to judicial review from the judiciary will have to speak the Constitution. There is no option without speaking of the Constitution A. Who have been dismissed once elected governments dozens, they should talk to the Constitution. It is very important to education to protect the constitution. "
After this, he targeted the previous UPA government and Sonia Gandhi.
He said "There was a National Advisory Council above the PM and PMO. Those who run the government with remote control need to understand the importance of the Constitution. The country is watching, Delhi is watching, what is happening in the name of the Constitution. Everyone is watching "The silence of the country will bring color. The leftists and Congressmen, who do vote bank politics, are provoking the people by going there." PM reminded Shashi Tharoor to go there without naming Shaheen Bagh.

After this, PM Modi cited the statements of several leaders one by one.
He said, "Mehbooba Mufti said on August 5 that India betrayed Kashmir. The country we decided to live with has cheated us. It seems that we had made the wrong election in 1947. Can these people who follow the Constitution accept this type of language? "

"Omar Abdullah said that the removal of 370 would result in an earthquake that would separate Kashmir from India. Farooq Abdullah said that the removal of 370 would clear the path of independence of Kashmir. No one will be left in Kashmir. Can a person who believes in the Constitution of India accept such a thing? "
He said that the opposition has exerted full power in creating 'imaginary fears' about the CAA.
Modi sarcastically said, "The same people who take photographs with those who cut the pieces of the country, Pakistan has been speaking this language for decades. Pakistan has done every game to provoke the Muslims of India. They showed every color. Pakistan The thing that cannot be increased is that the people of India have removed from the throne of power, those people are doing work which we cannot even imagine. "
Staring at Nehru, Modi said, "One can hope to become PM. There is nothing wrong in that. Someone had to become PM, so a streak was drawn over the country, the persecution of minorities after Partition. Can not be imagined. "

He said that "It was not only Gandhi but also Nehru's sentiment. There are so many documents, reports, that I told all these things. So, was Pandit Nehru communal, did Pandit Nehru want to create Hindu nation, Congress problem Is that she makes things, makes false promises, defers those promises for decades. "
In the first part of his speech, he talked about farmers, development, economy and employment.
