Prime Minister Narendra Modi accusing that the Congress party was unnerved at the success of his government over past five years, said that it has harboured “hatred towards Gujarat”. Addressing an election rally in Junagarh of Gujarat, he alleged that the “Nehru-Gandhi family of the Congress” first targeted Sardar Patel and Morarji Desai before “using all kinds of abuses” at him.
“The Nehru-Gandhi family is rattled seeing that this chaiwala has completed five years with full strength,” said PM Modi charging the Congress of relegating Sardar Patel to oblivion and engineering the downfall of the Morarji Desai government in 1970s. They faced wrath of the Congress because they belonged to Gujarat, PM Modi said.
“The Nehru-Gandhi family is rattled seeing that this chaiwala has completed five years with full strength,” he added. He asked the people to see track record of his government and that of Congress and its allies taped record. “Our track record is of fight against terror, focus on development, and taking up the cause of the poor. But the Congress’s tape record plays only one song, Modi Hatao (Remove Modi),” he said.
“They don’t have any other agenda except Remove Modi,” said the prime minister adding the Congress is supporting those who want to separate Jammu and Kashmir from India and have a separate prime minister there.
He also made a strong pitch for repeat of 2014 performance of BJP, when the party had swept all the 26 Lok Sabha seats in the state. Gujarat will go to the polls for all parliamentary seats in the third phase of the Lok Sabha elections on 23 April.
