BJP president who is on a three-day visit to Karnataka, ahead of the assembly elections in the state, said that Udupi holds a special place for his party and called the district as the gateway for Bharatiya Janata Party.
Udupi (Karnataka) [India], February 20 (ANI): No other Prime Minister got their people rescued from a conflict zone like PM Narendra Modi did by evacuating over 22,500 students while enforcing a ceasefire after war broke out between Russia and Ukraine, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National President JP Nadda said on Monday.
“No other Prime Minister in the history of India has been as great as Modi ji. He stopped the Russia-Ukraine war to evacuate 22,500 students from there back to India,” Nadda further said while addressing a public gathering in poll-bound Karnataka’s Udupi.
He further said that many students, who were rescued during the Ukrain-Russia war, were from Karnataka.
Nadda also claimed that the United States of America, unlike India is not fully vaccinated with Covid-19 vaccine forcing its President Joe Biden to wear a mask.
“You all see Joe Biden on television and he still wears a mask, because, in the US, only 76 per cent of vaccination is done. But here, I can see that nobody is wearing a mask and all sitting close to each other because PM gave us 220 crore jabs,” he added.
