The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader alleged that the same motive same was pursued by the Congress and the grand alliance. The Congress, Pakistan and China "does not want a strong" prime minister like Narendra Modi, and, instead, they want a "majboor sarkar (weak government) and not majboot (strong) sarkar", the minister alleged.

Sharma claimed that under the leadership of Modi, sincere effort had been done for the first time to nip terrorism in the bud -- through airstrike and surgical strike.

Corruption and terrorism had been the greatest hurdle in the development of the country, the minister said. To counter it, he said, the Modi government developed a system of transferring the amount, meant for various schemes, directly into the accounts of beneficiaries.
