"During Congress government, people died of hunger, farmers committed suicide, the youth migrated, daughters and businessmen were unsafe, terrorists could infiltrate into the country and would explode bombs anywhere. But today, even if a firecracker bursts, Pakistan starts giving explanations that it wasn't involved because it knows if it is found involved in any attack, the forces of New India will infiltrate into its territory and attack," said Yogi Adityanath while addressing the election rally.
