Continuing his attack at the Congress accusing that four generations of Nehru-Gandhi family ruled the country, but hardly benefitted the people, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today accused that Dalit leader Sitaram Kesri was not allowed to complete his term as party president and was “thrown out of office” to make way for Sonia Gandhi as new party chief.
While addressing a public meeting in Mahasamund on the last day of the campaign for the final phase of elections for the Chhattisgarh Assembly, he said that Sitaram was “thrown into the footpath” by the family who ruled the country for four generations. He added that while the family “benefited from being in power”, the country did not benefit from their rule.
“Earlier Delhi had a remote-controlled government. The remote was in hands of a family which was afraid of the BJP,” he said, targeting the Congress and the Gandhis.
He further targetting Nehru-Gandhi family, said “Remember the days when four generations of a family ruled the country. What was the fate of people? They only thought about welfare of one family but never gave a thought about welfare of people. How can we trust them that they will fulfil aspirations of people now?”
The PM also alleged that Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh was also troubled by the then Congress government at the Centre. “For 10 years, the Centre was ruled by a ‘remote-control’ government which never paid attention towards Chhattisgarh,” he alleged.
The voting for the second phase of Chhattisgarh Assembly Election 2018 will be held on November 20. The results will be announced on December 11, 2018, along with that of four other states Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana and Mizoram.
