"It's the Modi government that daringly conducted surgical strikes and inflicted a heavy blow to the enemy and the terror camps on its territory", the BJP chief said, recalling the aftermath of the Uri attack.
Shah gave example of Dana Majhi incident saying the BJD government is also not able to provide the minimal facilities for which Dana had to carry the body of his wife on head for almost 10 kilometres. Drinking water facilities are yet to be ensured for all. Shah called upon the masses to uproot the current incapable BJD ruled Government. "What has (Chief Minister) Naveen Patnaik done in the past 17 years for Odisha's development?" He alleged the State Government is not allowing the benefits of the Central projects to reach near the people. Shah would be the first national leader of the BJP to visit the state after Union government took the controversial decision to demonetize currency notes of higher denomination.
"I ask them (opposition), why are you so anxious over Modiji's move against black money", he said, adding that parties with different ideologies had joined hands on the issue.
Amit Shah, while speaking at "Jan Jagran Maha Samavesh" in Bhubaneswar took pot shots at UPA for its laid back attitude regarding cross border retaliation.

Chattanooga School Bus Driver Was Not Drunk or High
Gwenevere Cook told CNN that her son tried to rescue children after the bus overturned, pulling some of them to safety. Four of the five children killed in Monday's school bus crash in Chattanooga have been identified by family members.
Asserting that the welfare of farmers and development of the agriculture sector were the top priorities of the Modi government, Shah said every step was being taken to ensure the same.
The opposition is not able to understand how the name of India has been glorified in worldwide level in the 2.5 years rule of Modi, said Shah. These welcomes are not of Modi but of the people of India, he added. He addressed to all the activists of BJP in all corners of the State to struggle.
The Prime Minister, incidentally, was in the sibling State of Telangana on Saturday and Shah lost no time in referring to his presence in Hyderabad, while asking the audience to raise slogans in BJP's support, loud enough for the PM to hear. "If Modi says today is Monday, they will say no no it's Tuesday", Shah mocked while addressing a mammoth Kisan Rally organised by the Andhra Pradesh BJP in Tadepalligudem this evening.
