Holding UPA government responsible for growing terrorism and poverty, firebrand BJP leader Narendra Modi on Sunday said "weak and old" Congress has become a burden for the country which needs a strong NDA to ensure safety and security of the people.

"UPA government failed to tackle growing terrorism due to its weakness and wrong policies which weakened internal security of the country," the Gujarat chief minister said addressing an election meeting here.

Described as BJP's Hindutva mascot, Modi said Congress had been surviving by creating problems in the country and insecurity and fear in people's mind.

"Congress has not only become weak and old but a burden for the people," he said asking the voters to reject the old party and choose BJP which can solve all their problems, including terrorism and unemployment.

"An old Congress can not change the fate of the youth," he said and pleaded for a young BJP government committed to peaceful and steady development of the country.

In a scathing attack on Congress accusing it of failing to curb terrorism, Modi said there was no need for a minister to go to the US to seek help after Mumbai terror attack.

The BJP stalwart further claimed that the government replied to 30 questions put by Pakistan on Mumbai attack.

He said terrorism has been increasing day by day which can be solved by a strong government and "we Indians and particularly our youths, have the guts to save the country from terrorist attack."

It is a matter of regret that the present government does not want to solve the problem just to encash the vote bank, Modi alleged.

Referring to Congress manifesto, he said Congress had promised to provide wheat at Rs 3 per kg to the poor which is meaningless as his government in Gujarat had been providing wheat at Rs 2 per kg.

He said Congress in its manifesto before the last election had promised to provide 1.5 crore employment.

But unfortunately, about 5 lakh people has lost their jobs recently due to faulty policies and mismanagement, Modi added.

He appealed to youths "if you want your security and job, remove this UPA government in Delhi".

While UPA had been crippled after several of its constituents quit the alliance, "people are virtually sitting in a sinking boat", Modi said.
