Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Home Minister and BJP candidate from Datia Narottam Mishra on Friday said that if BJP comes to power in the state then Pakistan will be devastated but if any other party wins, the neighbouring state would celebrate.
After casting his vote, Mishra said that if lotus blooms in Madhya Pradesh it will be devastation for Pakistan and on the contrary, the country will celebrate if any other political party wins. "Therefore, it is necessary to give utmost importance to the nation and press the lotus symbol button. By selecting the lotus symbol in Madhya Pradesh, the soldiers posted on the border will be strengthened," he said.
Mishra said that Pakistan will become panic-stricken if Prime Minister Narendra Modi retains power in Madhya Pradesh. He said that by selecting BJP one would be able to create an atmosphere of terror in the world of terrorism. "For those who are unable to go to the border to protect the country, this is an opportunity for them to serve the country. Press the button for the lotus symbol and contribute to the nation's interest," he added.
