Addressing a public meeting in Kheda, PM Modi "Gujarat had for a long time been a target of terrorism. People of Gujarat were killed in explosions in Surat & Ahmedabad. Congress was at centre then, we asked them to target terrorism but they targeted me instead. Terrorism was at peak in the country."

"Your one vote in 2014 has created a lot of difference in killing terrorism in the country. Let alone cities of the country, terrorists have to think a lot even before attacking our borders. But Congress questions our surgical strike," PM Modi said.

"Congress views terrorism from the prism of vote bank, Not only Congress but many like-minded parties have come up now who view terrorism as a shortcut to achieve success and this small party's hunger for power is even bigger," he said.

"Terrorism is not over yet and the politics of the Congress has not also changed. The fear of terrorism will remain till appeasement politics continues.

"The youth of the state, aged up to 25 years, have never seen what a curfew looks like. I have to save them from the bomb explosions, only BJP's double-engine govt can do this," the prime minister said.

The prime minister said the mouths of these parties remain "locked when big terrorist attacks take place so that their vote bank is not offended. They even go to courts from the back door to save terrorists".

"When Batla House encounter took place, a Congress leader cried for terrorists," the prime minister said, adding "Gujarat and the country should remain alert from such parties".

Gujarat will vote in two phases on December 1 and December 5. Votes will be counted on December 8.
