Cong pushing CBI, IM against BJP: Modi
BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Friday alleged that the vote bank politics of the Congress and its allies had helped terrorist organisations like Indian Mujahideen (IM) gaining grounds in the country.
‘These parties are realising that the onward march of the Bharatiya Janata Party cannot be stopped through democratic means hence they are using CBI and giving leeway to Indian Mujahideen (IM) like organisations,’ he said while addressing a well-attended ‘Vijay Shankhnaad’ rally, third in the series of nine rallies to be addressed by him in Uttar Pradesh before next Lok Sabha polls.
The senior BJP leader said there should be no surprise if during the Lok Sabha polls, the Congress, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party were not seen in the fray instead CBI and IM would be there on their behalf.
‘'BJP will never be cowed down by disruptive and anti-national elements and is well poised to provide a new era of development, self-reliance and self-esteem in the country,’ Modi said.
Making a passionate appeal to the people of Uttar Pradesh, he said their favour to BJP would help ending the political instability in the country as well as putting an end to all the speculations in this regard.
He chose the reference by attacking several opinion polls in the country which suggested of a hung verdict in the next Lok Sabha elections.
‘I am of strong opinion that the key to India’s growth story is the development of Uttar Pradesh, the largest state of the country,which sadly was ignored by all the political parties, be it Congress, SP or BSP,’ he said adding ‘same goes with the political scenario of the country also and the UP which sends 80 members to the lower house of the Parliament, has to play its role.’
Making a scathing attack on the Mulayam Singh Yadav-led SP and Mayawati-led BSP, Modi said all their leaders were busy asking reprieve in CBI cases against them and had no time to think about the development of the state. ‘What favour these parties have sought from the Centre about the betterment of their lot instead of asking for personal favours,’ he asked.
He said all the trio of Congress, SP and BSP parties which ruled UP were in the competition to make unfair money. ‘Do these parties are left with any moral right to rule the country,’ he further said.
The BJP’s prime ministerial nominee said that it was the high time BJP was given a chance because the common man of this country had already suffered a lot during 60 year rule of the Congress.
The senior BJP leader, accompanied by party’s national president Rajnath Singh, state president Laxmikant Bajpayee and other senior leaders of Uttar Pradesh, minced no words in saying the character, goals and even DNA of Congress, SP and BSP were same and they should not be taken separately.
He also made a mention of West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee who according to him always fought for her state unlike leaders of SP and BSP who catered to their personal interests.
He was particularly severe on UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav commenting such a young CM could not help the cause of the state. Modi, in fact, ridiculed him for writing to him asking for the lions for his dream project of lion safari in the state and remarked the state of UP needed employment to youth and bread to poor but not the lion safari.
‘I would have been pleased if Akhilesh Yadav had asked for the success plan of Amul, the milk revolution in Gujarat or any other such growth patterns,’ he said.
