SHIMLA------State BJP President Satpal Singh Satti in a statement issued from here today said that the Modi government has taken bold steps to give a befitting reply to the terrorist attacks as compared to the cowardly policies of previous Congress-led governments.

The Congress government was afraid of taking any suitable action accept blaming Pakistan and organising mourning meetings to express grief over death of the Indian citizens. However, when the Modi government came to power in the center, the policy of the Congress was changed and strong action was taken after every terror attack.

The BJP has accepted the crisis of this confidence as a challenge.

Even the history reveals that the Congress never fulfilled its promises.
