Bharatiya Janata Party prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi took his attacks on Gandhi family to another level altogether on Friday when he called Congress President Sonia Gandhi ‘10 numbri Gandhi’ (which in Hindi is used for a crook) during his rally in Karnataka’s Gulbarga.
Blaming that the Congress believed in ‘divide & rule’ politics, Modi targeted the Congress party over bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. He accused it of ignoring Seemandhra while carving out Telangana. “See what happened in Andhra Pradesh. We wanted Telangana and we want development of Seemandhra. Congress killed the mother during child’s birth,” he said.
Modi said that he would be going to Seemandhra to heal the people’s wounds. “I’ll go to Seemandhra as soon as I can, to heal their wounds and share their woes,” he said.
He claimed that the ‘BJP wave’ had taken over the country. Perhaps it will be a tsunami for them. Congress would not be saved,” he added.
Addressing the local populace, Modi said that even when India got independence in 1947, it was only Sardar Vallabhai Patel who took on the Nizam and freed Gulbarga. He indicated that had it not been Patel, Gulbarga would have been a part of Pakistan post independence.
Modi took on the Congress government in Karnataka saying that they have not yet started working. He said that the state government was still in celebration mood. Karnataka government is in the state for a long time now but still they have not started the work. Their celebrations are still on. The Rail Ministry is shut and the CM’s work is shut,” he said.
