Charkhi Dadri, October 15

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said India would not allow its water to flow to Pakistan.

“For 70 years, the water which belongs to India and the farmers of Haryana flowed to Pakistan. Modi will stop this water (from flowing into Pakistan) and bring to your houses,” the Prime Minister said at an election meeting, the second in two days, here.

He said the farmers of Haryana and Rajasthan had the right over the water that is flowing to Pakistan and was not being stopped by the earlier Indian governments.

“Modi aapki ladai ladega (Modi will fight your battle),” he assured the people at the rally.

The Prime Minister said Chinese President Xi Jinping during their informal summit in Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu, told him that he had watched the Aamir Khan-starrer ‘Dangal’ “which showcased excellent performance of daughters of India”.

“I felt really proud of Haryana on hearing this,” he added.

Praising Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, Modi said: “‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign would not have been effective without the support of Haryana villages.”

He slammed Congress leaders for “spreading lies” over Article 370. IANS
