PM Modi attacks opposition in UP rally

In a fiery speech at an election rally in Pilibhit on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the opposition INDIA bloc for their absence during the consecration ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. He also targeted senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his recent “Shakti” remarks. Modi accused the Congress of making concerted efforts to hinder the construction of the Ram temple, stating, “The Congress insulted Lord Ram by rejecting the invitation (of the consecration ceremony) and expelled its leaders who went to ‘Pran Pratishtha’ for six years. People will never forgive the party.”

The Prime Minister’s remarks come amidst growing political tensions ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and BJP state unit chief Bhupendra Choudhury welcomed Modi at the rally by presenting him with a flute, symbolizing Lord Krishna. Notably absent from the rally was BJP MP from Pilibhit Varun Gandhi, along with his mother, Maneka Gandhi, who were also excluded from the BJP’s list of star campaigners.

Speaking on the first day of Navratri, a Hindu festival celebrating the divine feminine power, Modi criticized the INDIA bloc for their alleged vow to eliminate “Shakti” (power). He accused the Congress of grossly insulting the revered power worshipped in India, stating, “These Congress leaders are talking about uprooting the power before which we bow our heads.”

The Prime Minister also took the opportunity to criticize the recently-released Congress manifesto, claiming it bore the imprint of the Muslim League. Additionally, he accused opposition parties of dividing the country by opposing the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA).

Modi highlighted his government’s swift response to the global coronavirus pandemic, emphasizing that India had not only managed to protect its citizens but also extended a helping hand to other nations. He stated, “Whenever there was a war crisis in the world, we evacuated every Indian safely.”

Asserting the power of the people’s vote, Modi expressed pride in the strong government that has been formed as a result. He proclaimed that India’s voice is now heard worldwide, and the BJP government has demonstrated that the country is no longer weak. He attributed India’s progress to the right intentions and high morale of the government.

The Prime Minister emphasized his government’s commitment to developing India and highlighted the country’s economic growth and achievements. He mentioned India’s status as the fastest-growing economic power, the successful Chandrayaan lunar mission, and the praise received by India for hosting the G20 summit.

Taking a dig at previous administrations, Modi criticized the Congress and the Samajwadi Party (SP) for the plight of sugarcane farmers, stating they had been made to beg for their own money. He highlighted the BJP government’s efforts to alleviate the problems faced by sugarcane farmers by opening and expanding sugar mills. Modi also drew attention to the availability of urea fertilizer and the financial support provided to farmers through schemes like Samman Nidhi.

The rally in Pilibhit was not only addressed by Prime Minister Modi but also Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and BJP’s Pilibhit candidate and state PWD Minister Jitin Prasada.
