Mr Modi and his ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have been promoting the Indian Government's national security record as a potential vote victor in the country's general election.
The Prime Minister on Sunday had remarked at the Barmer rally in Rajasthan that "India has stopped paying heed to Paksitan's threats... It clearly contradicts the position of Indian officials, who had tried to give an impression that there were no such plans of India and instead had blamed Pakistan for "whipping up war hysteria". In addition, the government will also provide pensions to farmers once the results are declared, he said.
Addressing the rally in a region known for onion production, PM Modi said his government is trying to increase onion storage capacity and reduce tax on their transportation. "Till Modi is here, nobody can touch reservations, given to us by Babasaheb Ambedkar", he said. The Chief Minister of Karnataka said that those people, who do not have anything to eat join the forces.
During an election rally, Prime Minister Modi remarked that India's nuclear arsenal was not just meant for Diwali fireworks.
National Conference leader Omar Abdullah targeted Modi and Mufti in his criticism. "Such rhetoric for short-term political and electoral gains, with complete disregard to its effects on strategic stability in South Asia is regrettable and against norms of responsible nuclear behaviour", the Pakistani Foreign Ministry said on Monday. It will create jobs for locals but the Congress-NCP leaders never allowed it to happen, he said.
The BJP has built its election campaign around national security ever since tension between India and Pakistan escalated after a terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama.
