BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Monday made a scathing attack on the Congress by saying that there will be no states where the ruling party will get seats in double digits after the Lok Sabha polls.
Addressing a rally in Assam’s Biswanath Chariali the BJP leader said, “Congress party has done nothing in past ten years of its rule. People of this country will teach Congress a tough lesson in this elections. I don’t think there will be a state in the country where Congress will get seats in double digits.”
Rejecting all pre-poll calculations and opinion polls, Modi said, “This election has to do with the chemistry of the nation, Congress will not get double digit in any state.”
Coming down heavily on the Tarun Gogoi government in the state, Modi said, “People were killed in the neighbourhood but neither the Chief Minister nor Congress leaders went there.”
“The CM of Assam is willing to travel 10 times to Delhi to meet Madam ji but can’t meet people of his state,” Modi added.
Earlier, while addressing a rally in Itanagar, Modi slammed the Congress led UPA government at the Centre over Italian marines case and the killing of a youth from Arunachal Pradesh.
Making a strong pitch for his party in the northeaster state, the BJP leader hit out at Congress chief Sonia Gandhi for flip-flop over the Italian marines case and failing to provide safety to people from northeastern states living in Delhi.
Attacking the Congress over the Nido Taniam death case, Modi said, “Sadly Congress lacks any shame. A boy from here was killed. When Madam Sonia came to the northeast, did she say a word on this.”
Raking up the fishermen killing issue, Modi said, “Madam Sonia says some people are taking about patriotism, but do we have to go to Madam Sonia to learn about patriotism? Sonia ji we don’t need your certificate. When two fishermen were killed by Italian soldiers, please tell me who helped them leave the country.”
Modi also attacked the Congress manifesto calling it a ‘betrayal letter’. “Congress manifesto is not ‘ghoshna patra’ it is ‘dhokha patra’,” Modi said.
Modi had on Sunday accused the Congress of blocking process of retrieving black money while addressing a rally in Nanded.
