Modi a face of development, not fear among Muslims: Naqvi

BJP vice president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said his party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has emerged as a "face and icon of development", and not that of "fear" among the country's Muslim population.

Addressing a public meeting in Alwar's Tijara area, Naqvi accused the Congress party of politically exploiting Muslims in the name of both secularism and communalism.

Naqvi claimed that Congress deliberately ignored their educational, economic and social concerns just for political gain, and created fear of Modi and BJP among Muslims so that they cannot avail benefits of mainstream development.

But Modi has emerged as a "face and icon of development", and not that of "fear" among the country's Muslim population, the BJP leader, who also visited the Muslim-dominated Mev area, said.

He said BJP was committed for the overall development of all sections of the society, while Congress was "trying to disturb the pleasing atmosphere in the country".
