PM Modi in Gujarat: Facing his attack on the Congress in Gujarat, the prime minister accused the big party on Sunday of seeking to divide society on the basis of caste and religion.
Resuming his campaign in his home state, where the first phase of the Assembly elections will be held on December 9, Prime Minister Modi attacked Congress, saying he wanted to create “walls between brothers.”
“The people of Gujarat know what Congress does, change color again and again, create a wall between brothers,” he said.
Addressing a rally in the Bharuch district, Modi said the party made “one caste fight with the other, one religion fight with another.”
“They keep you busy fighting between them. You can die but Congress will eat ‘malai’ (cream),” he said.
PM Modi also said that Congress opposes the BJP just for the fact of opposing it and that it is envious of them.
“My problem with the policy of the Congress is simple: they oppose us just for the fact of opposing, they oppose things like the bullet train only because they could not carry out this initiative and feel envious that there is someone else there”, He said. .
He added that Bharuch and Kutch are districts with significant Muslim populations that developed rapidly under the BJP mandate in Gujarat and the names of these two districts have figured prominently.
“In Uttar Pradesh, where Congress ruled for decades, the state to which generations of senior congressional leaders belong, we saw what happened there in the local elections, the Congress was annihilated, Uttar Pradesh knows Congress well and so does Gujarat . ” Minister Modi said.
He added that when there was flooding in Banaskantha in Gujarat, the leaders of the Congress met in Bangalore to save a leader (Rahul Gandhi) from losing a survey of Rajya Sabha.
“That same leader is now the main leader of the Congress, but what did he do for Bharuch? He could not work for Narmada, nor did he think of the Ro-Ro shuttle,” the prime minister said.
He further stated that curfews and violence were common in Bharuch when Congress was in power, adding: “BJP changed this, not only in Bharuch but in all of Gujarat.”
The prime minister has planned two more rallies in Surendranagar and Rajkot later in the day. Bharuch goes to the polls on Saturday.
Gujarat will vote in two phases, on December 9 and 14, to elect an Assembly of 182 members. The counting of votes will take place on December 18.
