Jamui (Bihar), Apr 2: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday lambasted the opposition parties for seeking proof of military operations against terror camps and remarked they appear spokespersons for Pakistan more than political parties representing India.
Addressing his maiden rally in Bihar after announcement of Lok Sabha polls, Modi said the electorate must decide whether they want the madadgars (helpers) of Pakistan to be in power..those who are out to destroy the morale of armed forces by seeking proofs.
He also hit out at National Conference leader Omar Abdullah for advocating restoration of the post of Prime Minister in Jammu and Kashmir, saying: “Can any country have more than one PM. I would like the Congress and the RJD, which are part of the same mahamilavat gang, to come clean on the issue.”
The PM has been mocking mahagathbandhan (grand alliance) of opposition parties as “mahamilavat” (highly adulterated).
“They appear more like spokespersons for Pakistan than political parties representing India,” the PM said launching a scathing attack at the rivals for their comments post-Pulwama attack.
The Prime Minister alleged that whenever the Congress has come to power in the country, whether on its own or heading an alliance, governance has gone into reverse gear.
“Growth rate has dropped while there has been a surge in militant activities, violence and accumulation of black money,” he said.
In a veiled attack on parties like Lalu Prasads RJD, Modi said those who always swore by the name of JP (Jayaprakash Narayan) are now sitting in the lap of the Congress.
In an apparent rebuttal of the RJDs repeated allegation that his government was planning to do away with reservations to forward the RSS agenda, he said let alone Modi, nobody can abolish quotas.
“We have provided 10 per cent reservations for the economically weaker sections among the general category, but we have done so without diluting reservations for SCs, STs and OBCs,” he pointed out.
