Six powerful quotes from Indian leaders Modi, Thackeray and Bhagwat on Dussehra

On Tuesday, on the occasion of Dussehra various Indian politicians made public appearances and joined the festivities. Prime Minister Narendra Modi made his first public speech after 29 September surgical strike by the Indian Army and in an obvious reference to Pakistan said that the time has come to uproot terror and those who patronise terrorists.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat backed cow vigilantes and asked the government not to equate them with anti-social elements, contradicting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's stand on the Hindu bovine activists. He spoke in his annual speech on Vijay Dashmi, marking the 91st foundation day of the RSS.

Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray too spoke on Tuesday in Mumbai and lauded PM Modi for the recent surgical strikes across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, and simultaneously dared the state BJP to break its alliance. He also gave a stern warning to the terrorists trying to infiltrate India's borders.
