under the strong and steadfast leadership of Narendra Modi Ji,
is battling, external threats, in a bold and decisive manner.

neighbouring countries, Mr Modi, like the Hindu God 'Narasimha'
(Lord Vishnu taking this Avatar to kill Hiranyakasipu), has taken
bold military steps, without any sleep, and decimated hundreds
of terrorists, which has been appreciated by the entire world.UNI
