Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a rally in Kanyakumari on Friday lauded Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman saying, "every Indian is proud of him".
"Every Indian is proud of brave pilot Abhinandan," PM Modi said at a rally in Kanyakumari.
PM Modi was addressing a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rally in Tamil Nadu's Kanyakumari town.
Attacking Congress, Modi said, "people wanted honesty, not dynasty; people wanted development, not decay; people wanted progress, not policy paralysis.."
“Sadly, a few parties, guided by Modi hatred have started hating India. The world is supporting India’s fight against terror but a few parties suspect our fight against terror,” he added.
"26/11 happened, India expected action against terrorists but nothing happened. When Uri and Pulwama happened, you saw what our brave soldiers did. I salute those who are serving the nation," PM Modi said.
“The events of the last few days have demonstrated yet again the strength of our armed forces. It has also brought our nation closer. The way the nation has supported our armed forces is extraordinary and I bow to every Indian for that,” he added.
