Lucknow: BJP president Amit Shah Friday claimed Naxalism has been confined to 15 per cent in the country under the Narendra Modi administration.  He was addressing an election meeting here in favour of sitting BJP MP and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

“During the Congress government, the entire country faced the problem of Naxalism, but with Narendra Modi becoming the prime minister and Rajnath Singh as home minister, Naxalism gradually got confined to mere 15 per cent,” Shah claimed.

Meanwhile, 15 jawans were killed in a major Naxal attack in Maharashtra on Wednesday. The BJP leader also credited the Centre for building strong internal security.

There was a time when police used to fear ‘goondas’ (hooligans), but today the situation is different… the team of Narendra Modi and Rajnath Singh has worked on ensuring internal security, Shah said.

The BJP chief also said there were ‘Modi, Modi’ chants wherever he went and the same reflected the blessing of 130 crore countrymen.

“I went to east, west, north and south, everywhere it was Modi, Modi,” he said. Shah added people have decided that Modi will become the prime minister again on May 23.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who was also present on the occasion, said under the guidance of Modi, the state government has done considerable work in two years.
