On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleged Congress for dividing the society into different groups. PM Modi targeted the grand old party one day after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah alleged that the Congress supports ‘Bharat tere tukde honge’.
PM Modi interacted the party workers with the help of ‘NaMo’ app and said that ‘BJP spreads happiness while the Congress divides people’. Targeting the opposition party PM Modi further added that Congress will make attempts to incite fighting among people in the five states where assembly elections are slated to be held.
“Hum sukh baantne wale hain, woh (Congress) samaj baantne waale hain. Paanch states mein elections hain, choti-choti cheezon mein tanav paida kardenge, ek ko dusre se ladwadenge (We spread happiness, they divide the society. There is election in five states and they will make attempts to make you fight with each other using trivial issues),” said the BJP strongman.
Referring to the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, PM Modi said that the Congress inspired the people to speak against each other. He said that on one hand former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee created three states while on the other Congress made people fight against each other.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also during his speech declared Mahagathbandhan “a failed idea”.
“Mahagathbandhan is a failed idea. These parties constantly bicker with each other but come together when there’s an opportunity to form a government as we saw in Karnataka. Similar efforts are underway in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. BJP workers need to make people aware of the background of these leaders,” said the Prime Minister.
PM Modi targeted the opposition about a month ahead of Assembly elections. The assembly elections will take place after a month in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram. November 28 has been decided as the date for the polls in Madhya Pradesh while voting in Rajasthan will be held on December 7.
Talking about the polls in Chhattisgarh, the state will have the elections in two phases on November 12 and 20. Voting in Mizoram and Telangana will be held on November 28 and December 7, respectively. The results will be declared on December 11.
