Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a fresh attack on the opposition parties and said that though the Samajwadi Party was evidently going soft on the Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati was openly opposing the grand old party.
The prime minister was speaking at an election rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Pratapgarh. He was accompanied by UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath and Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi. The prime minister has election rallies in UP and Bihar scheduled for today. In Uttar Pradesh, PM Modi has two rallies in Pratapgarh and Basti, while in Bihar; he will address a public meeting at Valmiki Nagar.
“Now it has become clear that the Samajwadi Party under the guise of a grand alliance has used Mayawati. They have been shrewd with her and kept her in the dark about their intentions. They also went to the extent of promising to make her the PM. Now, Behenji has realized their ploy and hence openly criticizes the Congress,” PM Modi said.
Making a reference to Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi sharing the stage with SP leaders he said, “SP keeps very quiet when asked about the Congress and on the other hand Congress leaders are even attending SP rallies and sharing the dias with SP leaders. They should not have tricked Mayawati in such a cunning manner. She is still not able to understand how they tricked her. Truth always comes to the forefront. It cannot be hidden for too long.”
“The party which in the first phase of polls was portraying their leader as a PM candidate have now started confessing that they are merely there to cut votes
Cutting votes and tearing bills are the character of the Congress,” the prime minister said.
“Now even Congress is openly accepting that they cannot win over Modi till they malign Modi’s honesty and hard work,” he added.
“This Maha Milawati Panja is very dangerous. Whenever they have come to power, the country has had to bear a heavy price. There are five major dangers of this alliance: corruption, instability, casteism, dynastic politics and bad governance,” he said.
“These people do not trust outsiders and therefore just keep their family members in power. Anyone who starts to emerge as an alternative is destroyed,” the prime minister said signing off.
