Congress is a burden on the nation, indulges in mud-slinging: PM Modi

PM Modi addressing BJP's 'Karyakarta Mahakumbh' at Bhopal on Tuesday

Addressing the BJP’s ‘Karyakarta Mahakumbh’, on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the Congress is a burden on the country. He further questioned whether the party had lost its mind after losing power.

“They (Congress) are indulging in mud-slinging because they find it easier… They have indulged in mud-slinging earlier too. But I want to tell them, the more you throw mud at us, the more the lotus (BJP’s symbol) will bloom,” PM Modi said.

It was a veiled reference to the charges of corruption being levelled by the Congress in the Rafale fighter deal. PM Modi said the opposition party, instead of indulging in mud-slinging, should engage in a debate on issues like development which ‘they do not dare to.’

Addressing a rally in Bhopal, the Prime Minister mocked Congress, saying the 125-year-old party had been reduced to such a condition that it was ‘begging’ to small parties for alliances. He said even if the Congress gets allies, the coalition will not be successful.

(“The Congress is failing at alliances within the country and therefore to gain power, the party is now looking for alliance partner outside the country.”)

“Will the world decide who will be the Prime Minister of India? Has the Congress party lost balance, after losing power? There is nothing left in the 125-year-old party. It has become a burden on nation,” the Prime Minister said without naming anyone or any particular nation.

PM Modi said his government believes in social justice for all and that its ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’ campaign is not just a slogan.

He expressed confidence that the BJP would emerge victorious in the upcoming Assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh as well as in the Lok Sabha elections next year.

Addressing the rally where BJP chief Amit Shah and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan were also present, the prime minister said the opposition parties had formed the “Maha-gathbandhan” (grand alliance) out of fear of losing the polls.

Shah addressed the rally before Modi and said that the BJP will win elections with overwhelming majority.
