PM modi said : “I read in the newspaper that someone from the Congress claimed that its pro-Muslim. Earlier, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh also said that country’s natural resources belong to Muslims. But what is Congress’ stand on Muslim women,” asked Modi while addressing the gathering at Azamgarh.
Modi spoke at length about his government’s initiative to make the practice of Triple Talaq illegal. A landmark bill to make instant triple talaq illegal was passed by the Lok Sabha in January where government enjoys a majority but hit a wall in the Rajya Sabha where the government is hopelessly outnumbered. The bill seeks to make the practice of making instant divorce illegal with up to three years in jail as punishment.
PM Modi lauded UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s work to reduce crime and corruption in the state. BJP government is working to create an environment of development in the state. “What Yogi ji did towards putting a check on crime & corruption, bringing investments to the state & making business easier for small traders, is commendable”, Modi said.
