Home Minister Amit Shah has said that no propaganda can deter India’s unity and the country stands united and together to achieve progress. In a tweet, Mr Shah said that no propaganda can stop India to attain new heights. He said, propaganda cannot decide India’s fate, only ‘Progress’ can.
Mr Shah joined union ministers, including Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, India cricket captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood celebrities tweeting in apparent unison against “propaganda” that threatens national unity.
“No propaganda can deter India’s unity! No propaganda can stop India to attain new heights! Propaganda can not decide India’s fate only ‘Progress’ can. India stands united and together to achieve progress,” Mr Shah tweeted.
Shortly afterwards External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said: “Motivated campaigns targeting India will never succeed. We have the self confidence today to hold our own. This India will push back.”
Earlier Ms Sitharaman tweeted: “Before rushing to comment on such matters, we would urge that the facts be ascertained, and a proper understanding of the issues at hand be undertaken.”
