NEW DELHI: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday lashed out at Congress saying that the grand old party followed the policy of misleading the poor and keeping them deprived during its rule, reports the Times of India.
Addressing a rally in Rajasthan's Ajmer, the prime minister said that the last nine years of the BJP government were dedicated to the service of people, good governance, and the welfare of poor.
“What was the situation prior to 2014 People were on the streets against corruption, there used to be terrorist attacks in big cities, the Congress government was scared of building roads at borders, crime against women was high, there was a superpower above the PM, Congress government was functioning through remote control. There was darkness before the youth, and today, India is being praised across the world,” he added.
The rally was organised to mark the completion of nine years of the Modi government across its two terms. PM Modi also launched Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) month-long pan-India campaign, 'Maha Jansampark', in poll-bound Rajasthan's Ajmer today covering all 543 Lok Sabha constituencies.
Under this Maha Jan Sampark, scheduled to be held from May 31 (today) to June 30, extensive public programmes will be done across the country after the completion of 9 yrs at the Centre.
Over 51 huge rallies, public meetings at more than 500 places, and over 600 press conferences in over 500 Lok Sabha and 4000 Vidhan Sabha constituencies will be conducted along with over 5 lakh distinguished families will be contacted.
