BJP President Amit Shah yesterday compared the Mahagathbandhan, the proposed alliance of opposition parties against the BJP, with a band of thieves. He said that the Opposition accuses Prime Minister Modi of corruption while actually, it is the Opposition partied that looted the wealth of the country.
Addressing an election rally in Rajasthan, Shah labelled the Mahagathbandhan as a band of 40 thieves, who were thrown out of the villages they looted by a newly-appointed ‘chowkidar’ (Prime Minister Modi).
“All of them united and told the villagers that the chowkidar is the thief. The villagers beat them up and banished them from the village. On the one hand, this Mahagathbandhan is a unity of those who loot the wealth of the public through corrupt means. On the other hand, there is the Narendra Modi government that has safeguarded the nation,” Shah said.
Shah attacked the Congress Party for indulging in corruption that spanned from outer space to below the earth. “In space they did the 2G scam, in the skies they did the AgustaWestland helicopter scam, on land they did the Adarsh Society scam, the scam involving the purchase of submarines spread their corruption to the seas and they stole coal from below the earth. Their corruption can be seen everywhere, today they are questioning us?” Shah said.
“During his 10-year term, intruders would enter the country from all fronts and carry out their acts of terrorism and no one used to do anything. During Modi ji’s government, after terrorists killed and burnt our soldiers alive in Uri, he directed the Army to carry out surgical strikes. Our Army exacted revenge for our soldiers’ deaths by carrying out that operation in Pakistan,” said Shah criticising Congress for their poor handling of terrorist activities during former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s government.
Shah spoke about how Modi-led government’s initiative to introduce the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam led to over 40 lakh immigrants being recognised as immigrants and promised to cleanse the entire nation of such illegal immigrants if BJP is elected to power in Rajasthan.
Rajasthan goes t polls on Dec 7 and the results of the elections will be out on Dec 11.
