Shah Gandhi Lok Sabha Elections
At a rally in Arunachal Pradesh six days ahead of the polls, BJP President Amit Shah assured the state of building an AIIMS there, so as to help people avoid the hassle of travelling to Delhi or Guwahati for treatment. 
 
The BJP is fielding a candidate from both the seats in the state, and one seat is backed by the NPP, with whom it is in an alliance with in Meghalaya, Manipur and Nagaland. The state will hold polls for the general elections as well as the assembly elections simultaneously on April 11.
 
Shah, after reminding the citizens of the “peace, development and stability”, brought in by the party in the past 5 years, and financial help provided to the farmers of the state, moved on to target the Congress, which is also fielding candidates from the two constituencies. 
 
The NDA chairperson claimed that after the airstrike by the Indian Air Force on Balakot in Pakistan which struck the largest training camp of the terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad, only two places experienced “deep sorrow”- one was Pakistan, and the other was Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Shah condemned Gandhi and his aide Sam Pitroda, who was the advisor to Gandhi’s father Rajiv Gandhi in his PM tenure, for questioning the decision of BJP to attack the JeM. A controversial row had broken out when the Padma Bhushan awardee had said that the BJP “should have talked to Pakistan”. Shah expressed disdain and wondered at whether bombs should have been dropped or cordial discussion been initiated after 40 of our CRPF soldier were killed by the Pakistan-based organisation.
