While addressing a public rally in Bharuch on Sunday, PM Modi lashed out at Congress by saying that in Uttar Pradesh elections, people have rejected Congress. He stated that the people of Gujarat are aware of Congress strategies that divide societies.
The crowd cheered for PM Modi, when he addressed Bharuch as Maaro aa Bharuch.
PM Modi said that Congress party change their colours from time to time and know well how to create rift between brothers. They have created negativity within various communities and castes.
He mentioned that Congress is taking advantage of the fights within communities, they aren’t concerned if people fight or die and added that ‘Tame ladta rao, marta rao, ane Congress malai khaati rai’ (They just keep sitting and enjoy the benefits).
PM Modi stated that since the day BJP has been in command, health and business have improved and Gujarat has been moving towards success and development. Congress has not been able to take Gujarat’s growth positively.
Bharuch district and Kutch district have maximum Muslim population. In BJP’s rule, these two districts have seen the maximum amount of growth.
Taking a jibe at the Congress party leaders, PM Modi stated that when Indira Gandhi came, she said that she was the daughter-in-law of the nation, and when Rajiv Gandhi came, he said, he was the son.
The Congress party leaders just came and claimed that they were the sons and daughter-in-law, but they haven’t done anything for the state.
He recalled another incident of Banaskantha, when the city was facing floods in July, instead of helping the flood-affected people in the worst-affected districts like Banaskantha, Congress legislators flew off to Bengaluru.
PM Modi stated that they were selfish people and showed no responsibility towards the citizens.
PM Modi also said that Congress could not even build a bridge over the Narmada nor did they ever imagine something like the Ro-Ro Feri service that was started from Bharuch to Bhavnagar. Congress had done nothing for the development of Bharuch in the past.
