"Attack on Sarabjit cannot be viewed in isolation. Be it the legal battle over the Italian marines, the two Indian soldiers being beheaded (by Pakistan), the Chinese incursion, these instances show that India is unable to effectively state its message to the world: Shri Modi"
"Centre is busy in saving itself, which is why they have no time to save the nation, which is very sad: Shri Modi"

On Saturday 27th April 2013 Shri Narendra Modi took on the UPA over the issue of the attack on Indian prisoner Sarabjit in a Pakistani prison. The Chief Minister was speaking at the sidelines of the inauguration of the All Gujarat Public Prosecutors’ Conference held at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar.

Shri Modi affirmed that the attack of Sarabjit cannot be viewed in isolation. Be it the legal battle over the Italian marines, the two Indian soldiers being beheaded (by Pakistan), the Chinese incursion, these instances show that India is unable to effectively state its message to the world. Shri Modi said that the desired toughness with which we should express our stand in front of the world or with our neighbours is missing and there is darkness all around.

He pointed that these events one after the other indicate our failure. Shri Modi also said that the Centre is busy in saving itself, which is why they have no time to save the nation, which is very sad.
