Hitting out at the Congress party, Shri Modi said, “Congress leaders labelled youth of Punjab as terrorists. How can that be accepted?”

The PM added that there could be political differences in thinking but protecting democratic values must be at the core and hence, dictatorship wasn’t acceptable.
