"On on side there is vote bank politics and on the other there is nationalism. Remember 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack, what did the Congress led government do? Our brave soldiers had asked for permission to enter Pakistan and avenge," said PM Modi in Araria, Bihar.

"The Congress government then refused the army to do anything because they wanted to do politics over vote bank. Everyone knew that the terrorists were Pakistanis, but the Congress and their allies, instead of punishing Pakistan focused more on associating the Hindus with the term terrorism," he added.

Addressing his first rally in Maharashtra on April 1, Prime Minister Modi had blamed the Congress party for coining the term 'Hindu Terror'.
