“I wish to remember Dr Manmohan Singh today, his contribution in the House, with his invaluable thoughts, both as a leader and in the opposition has been immense.

Amit Shah was addressing back to back public meeting in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra’s Nanded on Thursday. Union home minister Amit Shah also claimed that it was thanks to the BJP that Aurangabad in central Maharashtra was renamed as Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar, and Osmanabad as Dharashiv.

Congress stalled the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya for 70 years, he alleged.

As prime minister, Manmohan Singh remained silent when terrorists from Pakistan attacked the country, while Modi conducted surgical strikes in response to such attacks, Shah said.
