“Had terrorism been not there, the money spent on purchasing guns and pistols could have been used for the purpose of building hospitals and implementing welfare schemes for the poor,” PM noted.
“The situation was different 40 years ago but now government had to spend huge money for preventing terrorist activities,” he added.
Mr Modi said that children of poor who were appointed in police and armed forces had to perform very hard duty and even they did not find time to sleep. They have to even lose their jobs in some cases when some terrorist act happened, he added.
PM said that no leader in the electoral fray could eradicate terrorism as it could be done only by ‘chowikdar’ (Modi), who needed full support from people in form of votes. (UNI)
