NEW DELHI: On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi termed ‘mahagathbandhan‘ (grand alliance by the opposition) as a “failed idea”. He also said that they want a weaker government at the centre.

PM Modi while using the NaMo mobile app interacted with the Bharatiya Janata Party workers from five Lok Sabha constituencies said that usually the opposition parties fight against each other but to come into power they came together.

PM Modi through video conferencing addressed the party workers from the city of Agra in Uttar Pradesh, Damoh in Madhya Pradesh, Karauli and Dholpur in Rajasthan, Mysuru in Karnataka and Raipur in Chhattisgarh.

“Same thing happened in Karnataka. Before elections, they misled the people by attacking each other. And when it was time to form government, they did not waste any time to come together,” PM Modi alleged.

Modi further added, “A few days ago, you must have heard an opposition leader saying that they don’t want a strong government. You can understand why they want a weak government. When there is a strong government in the centre, the whole country is benefited. In case of a weaker centre, only the leaders of an alliance get benefited.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also alleged the previous government for not following the traditions and the culture of India.

“India’s cultural heritage inspires people across the globe to lead their life normally even while facing many challenges. But it was unfortunate that those sitting in government earlier instead of feeling proud of our rich culture felt ashamed,” Modi said.

Modi adding more to the speech said that though the country was independent since decades, it was considered as the country of snake charmers. The most shocking and shameful part about this was, those who ruled the country for decades encouraged such things, Modi added.
