Union Minister of Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Wednesday compared Congress president Rahul Gandhi to a “pirated laptop” having only fake and fraud words.
The BJP leader further said that the “balloon” of opposition’s grand alliance will burst before the Lok Sabha elections 2019.
The Union Minister while addressing BJP Jharkhand unit office-bearers said that NDA will win the 2019 elections with a huge mandate because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s great leadership and pro-poor decisions.
“As the frustrated opposition has come to know about it, they are showing off unity… But the balloon of Mahagathbandhan will burst before the Lok Sabha elections,” Naqvi said. Naqvi in his speech compared Rahul Gandhi to ‘pirated laptop’ but did not elaborate his statements further. Naqvi, however, said that the popularity of the Prime Minister is on the rise in the last 4.5 years.
Naqvi claimed that Modi took the country’s reins when inflation was 11 per cent and it is four per cent now and happened due to his skilful management. He said that prices of grains and edible oil are under control, while there is no shortage of grains, pulses, and onions.
Reacting to the issue of rising oil prices, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi defended the government by saying the price of petrol depends on international factors and efforts are on to control the prices. He added that the investors have shown confidence in the country as India is one of the fastest growing countries in the world.
