In what became a ‘Mann Ki Baat’ with the people of Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi invoked the pre-Independence connection with India, and called for a war against poverty, illiteracy, and unemployment.

I want to remind the people of Pakistan that before 1947, your ancestors called this land their home. I want you, the people of Pakistan to question your government. They are unable to handle their domestic crises in Gilgit, Balochistan, and Sindh. They failed in east Bangladesh, but want to rake up Kashmir? Ask your government to first put their own home in order before worrying about Kashmir.

Prime Minister Modi was addressing Day 2 of the BJP’s National Council Meet in Kozhikode, Kerala. Pulling a masterstroke during the highly anticipated speech, Modi said,

I want to tell the people of Pakistan, India is ready for war. Let’s fight to end poverty. Let’s see who’s able to eradicate poverty first. I want to tell the youth of Pakistan – let’s see who’s able to end unemployment first. I want to call on the children of Pakistan – let’s see who eradicates illiteracy first.
