Dynasticism, demonetisation and development; Modi rains fire on Cong

Dynasticism, demonetisation and development; Modi rains fire on Cong

Vidisha, MP, Nov 25 (UNI) Dynasticism, demonetisation and development constituted a three-pronged weapon that Prime Minister Narendra Modi used while mounting a chakravyuh-style offensive against Congress ranks while on the campaign trail in Madhya Pradesh.

“Democracy's worst foe is dynasticism, which has been a characteristic of the Congress that can work only for a single family's benefit and cannot be trusted. That party, which is still wailing over demonetisation, is vexed because more than three lakh fake companies were consequently busted,” he averred while addressing a public rally in this district headquarters.

The mother and the son are on bail, the visiting politician said without naming Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his mother Mrs Sonia Gandhi in the context of the National Herald case.

“Those who thought that the throne was theirs were compelled to stare at a prison door,” he


Accusing the Congress of making false promises, Mr Modi said that the party failed to fulfil its promised debt waiver for Karnataka's peasants against whom arrest warrants are being issued as they have adopted the agitation path.

“It was a rerun of a game played earlier. If one peruses government records of 2008, tillers' debt stood totalled Rs 6 lakh crore but only a small part of it was waived. The Comptroller and Auditor General's Report revealed that lakhs of beneficiaries had nothing to do with the agrarian sector! However, there was no discussion on this at that juncture as scams relating to 2G, Commonwealth Games, coal, submarine and helicopter were occupying the canvas,” he stated.

Alleging that the Congress was misusing social media as a propaganda tool, the Prime Minister cautioned those assembled to wake up and first verify what was being stated as that party adopted a similar strategy in Gujarat and Karnataka.

“The pages of the nation's electoral history tell us that the Congress never returned to power after losing in Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, West Bengal, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Bihar – where even (Rashtriya Janata Dal supremo) Lalu Prasad was also accepted instead,” he said.

In an oblique reference to Mrs Sonia Gandhi and her son, the Premier said that when the remote control was in "Madam's hand" only 90 km of national highways were laid in Madhya Pradesh from 2010-14 while the figure skyrocketed to 8,000 km in the past four years and it was a number that 'namdar' (dynast) shall not even be able to count.

Attacking Congress state President Kamal Nath, Mr Modi said that various types of videos are surfacing and one of them shows Mr Nath saying that 90 per cent votes of a certain community are imperative for the party.

“The Delhi locomotive and the Bhopal engine both sport lotus stamps and are reaching their destinations. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj - whose parliamentary constituency is Vidisha - did not allow development to halt despite her long hospitalisation,” he averred.

The Prime Minister touched upon achievements of the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Rojgar Protsahan Yojana and the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana.
