A senior leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has said that Narendra Modi has decided a date for war with Pakistan and China.
According to the details, Press Trust of India reported that BJP’s Uttar Pradesh chief Swatantra Dev Singh while addressing party workers said that Narendra Modi had decided when India would go to war with Pakistan and China.
The BJP leader’s statement came amidst a time when tensions continue on the Line of Actual Control between India and China.
According to the report, which was also cited by several broadcasters, including NDTV and the Indian Express, the BJP leader made his claim following the Supreme Court’s decision to start construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya and the abolition of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution which gave the special status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
In a video statement on social media, he was heard saying, “Like the Ram Mandir and Article 370 decisions, Narendra Modi has decided when to go for a war with Pakistan and China.”
In the video, he said in Hindi that “Sambandhit tithi tay hai (the date has been decided),”
Swatantra Dev Singh said this at a function held at the residence of BJP MLA Sanjay Yadav, who later released a video of him.
In his statement, the BJP leader likened the workers of Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Party to ‘terrorists’.
On the other hand, when local MP Ravindra Kushawaha was asked about the statement of the BJP leader, he said that the statement made by the BJP president in UP was to encourage and boost the morale of the party workers.
The Press Trust of India said that the statement reported by Swatantra Dev Singh seemed to deviate from India’s position.
In addition, Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh reiterated that India wants to end border tensions with China, but at the same time stressed that he would not allow anyone to take even an inch of land.
