NEW DELHI: The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) took a firm stance against the opposition on Friday by sharing a music video on social media with the message Mohabbat Dil mein rehti hai Dukaan mein nahi' ('Love resides in hearts, not in stores.' The party directed its criticism towards opposition parties, highlighting their involvement in corruption cases since India's independence. BJP's official media handle posted on Twitter, stating, "Love resides in hearts, not in stores. It is earned, not sold."
The video uploaded by BJP emphasized that people had grown weary of the Congress party's governance and chose to vote for the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The video further underscored BJP's efforts in aiding underprivileged families by providing subsidized cooking gas cylinders. It also touched upon significant events such as the Uri Strikes, which neutralized terrorist launch pads, and the recent successful launch of the Chandrayaan 3 lunar mission. The video also alleged that the Congress party's track record consisted of exploiting emergencies, fostering partition, and subjecting the people of India to abuse.
During the Lok Sabha session on Thursday, in response to a Motion of No Confidence, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed solidarity with Manipur, saying, "India stands with Manipur. I assure the people of the state that peace and progress will prevail. We are committed to restoring normalcy and upholding the dignity of women." PM Modi conveyed that the Congress had consistently disregarded the northeastern region, tweeting, "Congress has long shown apathy towards the Northeast. Their concern for the region has been minimal."
Addressing the Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to all opposition parties to collaboratively work towards earning the trust of the people of Manipur. He urged them not to exploit the situation in the northeastern state for political gain. He stated, "I request the Parliament MPs to recognize the significance of this moment. Let's come together and move forward. Our country has faced more serious challenges in the past, but we have always found ways to cooperate. Let's unite. Build trust with the people of Manipur. Don't manipulate Manipur's plight for political purposes. The events in Manipur are unfortunate. Let's empathize with their suffering and work towards healing. This should be our only approach," PM Modi concluded in his speech during the debate on the no-confidence motion.
