‘Abki baar 200 paar’ chants at Modi’s Mandsaur rally
Madhya Pradesh goes to vote in less than 4 days and PM Modi is in Mandsaur today. Incidentally, this is the first visit by the Prime Minister to the area after the agitation last year that resulted in the deaths of 6 farmers. Addressing a rally in Mandsaur ahead of the November 28 Madhya Pradesh Assembly polls, he accused the Congress of “making false promises” and asked the opposition party whether late Indira Gandhi’s “Garibi Hatao” (remove poverty) slogan a was a “lie” or not. The prime minister’s comments came in the wake of Congress president Rahul Gandhi accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of “making false promises” to people during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
