This makes it clear that the viral newspaper clipping is not recent.

Moving forward, we conducted a relevant keyword search and found the original news article on the website Dainik Bhaskar. The article was published 4 years ago. According to the report, J P Nadda was talking about border security and appealed to vote for NDA in the 2020 Bihar Legislative Assembly Elections. It was mentioned that Nadda was addressing the people at the Fort Ground in Buxar where he said that 300 terrorists were trying to enter the country.

Now, conducting a keyword search on YouTube we have found the video of J P Nadda addressing a public rally in Buxar, Bihar. The video was uploaded on the official channel of Bharatiya Janata Party on 20 October 2020. From timestamp 43:17, J P Nadda can be heard saying that 300 terrorists are trying to enter the country, but our brave soldiers will eliminate them.

This makes it clear that the viral newspaper clipping is old and not related to the ongoing general elections.

Conclusion 

From our investigation, we can say that the newspaper clipping is going viral without context. The newspaper clipping is old and the news is related to the 2020 Bihar Legislative Assembly Election. This has nothing to do with the ongoing general elections.
