Let Congress Appoint ‘Outsider’ as Party President, Will Believe in Nehru’s Democratic System : PM Modi
The attack came after Shashi Tharoor credited institutional structures created by Jawaharlal Nehru for a “chaiwala” like Narendra Modi becoming the Prime Minister of the country.
AMBIKAPUR, NOV 16: At a campaign rally for the second phase of Chhattisgarh Assembly elections scheduled on November 20, Prime Minister Modi launching a fresh tirade against the Congress said, “I want to challenge them. Let some good leader of Congress outside of the family become the party president for five years, then I will say that Nehru ji really created a truly democratic system there”.
Modi’s speech came after Tharoor credited institutional structures created by Jawaharlal Nehru for a “chaiwala” like Narendra Modi becoming the prime minister of the country.
The PM has repeatedly attacked the Gandhi family on the poll trail in Chhattisgarh saying four generations of Congress ruled the nation and they should give an account of what they have done for the country.
“People have disproved that it was the “right of only one family” to speak from the ramparts of the Red Fort in Delhi,” he said. “You can’t understand the difficulties faced by the poor but a chaiwalla can,” Modi said in an attack on the Congress and the Gandhis.
“They (Congress) have kept the country in the dark with their lies which are ingrained in their minds,” Modi said, not mincing words to target the principal opposition party and its top leaders.
On the impressive turnout in the first phase of polling held on November 10, Modi said, “People of Bastar in Chhattisgarh gave a strong response to Naxals by registering record voting percentage in the first phase”.
