Alliance... of those who want to loot nation: PM
Silvassa: On a day when several Opposition parties came together on a common platform in Kolkata, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit out at their proposed mahagathbandhan (grand alliance), claiming that it is a combine of those whom he had prevented from "looting" India. "The mahagathbandhan is not against Narendra Modi but the people of India," Modi said while addressing a public function at Silvassa, the capital of the Dadra and Nagar Haveli.
"My actions against corruption made some people angry as I prevented them from looting public money. They have formed the mahagathbandhan," Modi said, adding that these leaders have come together out of fear. Against the backdrop of the West Bengal government denying permission to BJP to organise yatras, the PM said that political parties in the TMC-ruled state are not even allowed to carry out their programmes.
