There is a ‘family pack’ for bail and no prizes to guess who are the beneficiaries of this pack, PM Modi in Tamil Nadu

Taking a jibe at the Congress leaders and their family members out on bail in various corruption cases, Modi said that now there is a family pack for the bail also.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today visited Tiruppur in Tamil Nadu to lay down the foundation stone of several development projects and inaugurated several others. The Prime Minister laid the foundation stone of the integrated building at Trichy airport which on completion is expected to facilitate around 3000 passengers at the airport during peak hours. Modi also addressed a public meeting in Tiruppur. He began his address by commemorating the brave freedom fighters Tiruppur Kumaram and Dheeran Chinnamalai.

Praising the enterprising spirit of Tiruppur, Modi told the people that the Namoagain T-shirts that people are seen wearing these days are manufactured in Tiruppur.

Blaming the Congress government for neglecting the defence sector, Modi said that the work culture of the NDA is different from that of previous governments. He said that those who ruled the nation for years did not bother for the defence sector and they made the defence sector all about brokering deals and helping their own set of friends. He called out Congress for alleged scams in defence deals and held it responsible for not allowing the modernisation of the defence forces. Modi questioned, “For the time they (Congress) were in power why is that every middleman caught had some link or the other with Congress?”

Modi said that his government wants the country to be self-sufficient in defence production and therefore the government took the path-breaking step of creating two defence corridors, one of which is in Tamil Nadu. Attacking the Congress party, Modi said that the party has missed no opportunity of belittling the Army.

Modi talked about various schemes brought by the BJP government including the OROP, Ayushman Bharat etc. He credited the taxpayers for making the development work done by the government by paying regular taxes and said that therefore the government has exempted the individuals with annual income of up to Rs 5 Lakh from income tax.

Launching a veiled attack at the senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, Modi called him “the Recounting Minister” and said that he thinks that all the knowledge in the world lies in him.

PM alleged that the Recounting Minister had mocked the middle class on the issue of inflation and that the middle class has rejected him.

Calling out the Congress leaders for resorting to derogatory language to criticise him, Modi said that the good word done by the NDA has made those unhappy who used to think that power was their divine right. And therefore their unhappiness in coming out through abuses.

Remembering the late K Kamaraj, Modi said that he wanted a government with zero tolerance for corruption. And the BJP government is running the government the way he wanted by putting locks on the corrupt misdeeds of the people.

Taking a jibe at the Congress leaders and their family members out on bail in various corruption cases, Modi said that earlier there used to be a family pack in mobile recharges and in ice creams but now there is a family pack for the bail also.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his mother and former Congress President Sonia Gandhi are out on bail in the National Herald case, while Sonia Gandhi’s son in law Robert Vadra is on bail in money laundering and illegal land deal cases. On the other hand, P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram are out on bail in Aircel-Maxis and INX media scam cases, while P Chidambaram’s wife Nalini Chidambaram is out on bail in the Saradha chit fund scam.

Taking on Mahagathbandhan, PM said that they (opposition) say that the Modi government was a failure and yet they had to form alliances to defeat him. He called the Mahagathbandhan as “Mahamilavat“, a club of rich people who are trying to promote their dynasties. He said that the people of Tamil Nadu can never accept an adulterated product like the “Mahamilavat”.

Modi praised the BJP government for introducing 10% reservation for the economically weaker sections of the General category without altering the existing scheme of reservation and the social justice system.

He said that the DMK and the Congress removed reservation in promotions for the SC and the ST communities while the current NDA government is responsible for bringing some of the strongest amendments for the SC and the ST.
