Taloon (MP): Assailing the Congress in battleground Madhya Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleged on Monday that the tenures of the party’s “corrupt and apathetic” dispensations in states witnessed slogans such as “sar tan se juda (beheading)” being raised on camera for the first time in Bharat.
Addressing a public meeting in Barwani district of election-bound Madhya Pradesh, the visiting dignitary averred, “It is crucial for youth to comprehend this characteristic of the Congress. Whenever that party assumes the reins, crime reaches the nadir. In their regimes; riots become commonplace, sisters and daughters are subjected to atrocities even as celebrating festivals becomes uphill.”
In the specific context of Rajasthan, the Prime Minister wondered what has not transpired there over the past half a decade.
“Could we even imagine that in Bharat we would ever hear slogans such as ‘sar tan se juda’? The country is not trusting Congress talk and promises owing to that party’s track record. Can you forgive such a Congress that always turns Nelson’s eye to the tribal community? During that party’s rule at the Centre, maximum starvation deaths were reported from adivasi areas,” Mr Modi underlined.
Congress leaders were responsible for pushing Madhya Pradesh into a dark well and now desire to recapture the state solely for the purpose of filling their empty coffers, the Prime Minister observed and quipped that a fresh slogan renting the air is ‘Congress aayee, tabahi layee (the coming of the Congress is synonymous with destruction).
“In Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, hoards of currency are being unearthed each passing day. Do these comprise honest earnings? In Himachal Pradesh; the peasantry, womenfolk, youngsters and employees were promised the moon and stars. Lollypops were handed out but today the situation is such that fuel is expensive in that state and cultivators had to dump their apple yield in water. Employees were deceived. In Karnataka, power tariff was hiked overnight and milk became dearer even as development came to a standstill,” he emphasised. UNI
