Recent events in Delhi have made us feel ashamed: Modi
Taking a jibe at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi Government, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Sunday said the incidents that took place in Delhi have made the entire country feel ashamed of them.
"Delhi needs to be seen as a global city but in the last few days, the kind of language being used and actions that are being seen, our heads are bowed in shame," Modi said while addressing his Vijay Shankhnad rally here today.
Commenting on the death of a youth, belonging to Arunachal Pradesh, after he was beaten with sticks in South Delhi's Lajpat Nagar area, Modi said, "A few days back African women were harassed. Women from Manipur were manhandled. And now a boy from Arunachal Pradesh has been killed."
"I appeal to the people of Delhi to should visit Arunachal Pradesh. The state and its people are fighting against China. When people from Arunachal Pradesh meet each other, they say 'Jai Hind'," he added.
Modi also pointed out the people from Northeast are coming to pursue their education and in search of jobs to big cities in India.
"They should be provided hostels. They are our own children and their security is our responsibility," he said.
