Opposition suffering from ‘Modi phobia’: Naqvi

Rampur (UP): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday took a dig at protest by Congress leaders against price rise while wearing black clothes and said that the opposition is suffering from political disease of ‘Modi phobia’.

Naqvi, who was here to participate in various programs organised on the occasion of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, said that the results of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hard work and the power of penance can neither be weakened nor defeated by ‘worn out political people’.

He also took a dig at the unity of the opposition parties and said, “The waiting list of two dozen prime ministerial candidates in the opposition has already been prepared. It’s called lamenting without vacancy.”

The former minister said that despite all kinds of political intolerance and fabricated allegations, PM Modi is working with the resolve of ‘inclusive development and all-round empowerment’. “For PM Modi, the security and respect of the country is ‘Rashtra Niti’ (national policy) and the welfare of every needy is Rashtra Dharma ‘national religion’,” he said.

Naqvi said that ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign has been started as a part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to commemorate 75 years of independence of the country. “This campaign is playing an important role in connecting the people of the country with its rich and golden heritage and history. That is the reason Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsava is taking the form of a mass movement,” he said.

He participated in a grand ‘Tiranga-Kite Program’ organised at Mahatma Gandhi Stadium (Physical Ground), where the tricolor was saluted by flying 75 kites. Naqvi also inaugurated a multipurpose building (Women’s Health Care, Sports Ground, Amrit Sarovar) at Tanda, Rampur on the occasion.
