Earlier there was exchange of fire in the border between the security forces of India and Pakistan and now also the same thing is being repeated. Where is the difference? He did not see the difference because he seemed to be wearing an Italian spectacle,” Shah said, while addressing a public gathering here.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”If they throw bricks, we throw stones in retaliation. We are replying to Pakistan’s bullets with shells and so there has been reduction of tension in the border. (Eeth ka jawaab ham pattharo mein dete hain.),” he added.Shah alleged that the communists had supported the UPA government which was involved in different scams involving more than Rs. 12 lakh crore and said that no opposition party could bring any charge of corruptions against the present NDA government.He alleged that the Left Front government, which was ruling Tripura since 22 years, had failed to develop the state, particularly the tribal compact areas.”There were no roads or drinking water supply or uninterrupted power supply, but the government boasts of development in the state.
