Addressing an election rally in Dehradun, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday came down hard at senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel and the Gandhi family for their alleged role in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal scam.
Referring to the chargesheet filed in the case, PM Modi asked which family is Ahmed Patel close to?
“The chargesheet mentions that AP stands for Ahmed Patel and FAM means family. Now, you tell me which family is Ahmed Patel closed to?” PM Modi said.
इसी चार्जशीट में कहा गया है कि AP मतलब अहमद पटेल और FAM का मतलब है फैमिली
अब आप मुझे बताइये कि अहमद पटेल किस फैमिली के निकट है: पीएम नरेन्द्र मोदी #ModiLaoDeshBanao

While speaking at an election rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur earlier in the day, Modi also lashed out at the opposition parties, saying their only agenda in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections is to remove Modi. And the Opposition’s sole objective is to promote dynasty.
“Opposition’s only agenda is ‘Modi Hatao’ (remove Modi), only intention is to promote ‘vansvaad’ (dynastic politics),” Modi said.
He also addressed an election rally in Amroha of western Uttar Pradesh and slammed the opposition for questioning the defence forces about their cross-border operations. Modi said that whenever India replies to its enemies in their language, some people start crying.
PM Modi also lashed out at Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his decision to contest from Wayanad in Kerala and said, “We are only pointing towards the manner in which he had to look for options outside Amethi. It shows that also realise it will be difficult to win in Amethi this time.”
Amroha and Saharanpur will go to poll on April 18 and April 11 respectively. While polling in all five Lok Sabha seats of Uttarakhand will be held on April 11.
The Lok Sabha polls will be held in seven phases between April 11 and May 19. Results will be declared on May 23.
