If Modi becomes PM, it would be the blackest day for democracy, says Mistry

Congress general Secretary and Uttar Pradesh in-charge Madhusudan Mistry on Thursday said that it would be the blackest day for the country if Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi becomes Prime Minister.

‘People of the country should be alerted about the sinister design of the BJP before the Lok Sabha elections and we should not allow BJP to fool the people,’ he said. He added, ‘It would be the blackest day for the country if Modi becomes PM,’ he said.
Talking to media persons here before leaving for Gorakhpur, Mistri ,accompanied by UP Congress president and local MP Nirmal Khatri, said that there is no Modi ‘magic’.

‘Where was the magic of Narendra Modi in Karnataka elections, where BJP could win only 40 seats. It was similar in Kerala, while in most other states of the BJP allies, the party prefered not to allow Modi to go there,’ he said.

Claiming that it was just a myth about Narendra Modi’s good governance in Gujarat  Mistry, who also hails from Gujarat, said corruption is rampant there, while  all the top police officials and even BJP leaders are going to jail for their illegal activities.
When his attention was drawn towards the party’s role in Uttar Pradesh against the ruling Samajwadi Party, the AICC in-charge clarified that the party should be aggressive against the opposition parties on peoples’ issue.

He also said that several Congress leaders of Mainpuri, Etawah and Aurriya, the stronghold of the SP, have urged him to strengthen the party in their regions and contest the Lok Sabha elections in a serious manner.

‘During my meetings in Lucknow and Faizabad, I have asked the party leaders to strengthen the party at the booth level shedding away all differences within the party rank and file,’ he said.

The Congress general secretary also talked about the new process to select candidates for the Lok Sabha elections to be decided by the block to state level committes.

 Mistry, is on a tour of eastern UP, where he started from Lucknow on 9 July. On Friday he will end his first phase of the tour after holding several rounds of discussions with  Congress leaders of eastern UP.
