Modi hungry for power, already assumes himself as PM: Sonia

‘Hungry for power’ Narendra Modi has already assumed himself as the prime minister even before the results of Lok Sabha elections are out, Congress president Sonia Gandhi said on Thursday.

In a scathing attack on the BJP prime ministerial nominee at rallies in Balrampur and Faizabad, she said Modi is so intoxicated in his lust for power that he already believes the results of the elections are out and he has been made the PM.

‘Modi satta ke bhuke hain. (Modi is hungry for power). And that is why he thinks even before the results are out, he is occupying the throne. Modi has forgotten that it is the people who decide as to who will form government,’ she said.

Dismissing as hollow Modi’s anti-corruption claims, she said several ministers in Gujarat were neck deep in scams.

‘Modi claims he will get rid of corrupt parliamentarians once he comes to power, I want to ask how many corrupt and criminal ministers has he removed from his own Gujarat cabinet?’ she asked.

‘The Gujarat model is being sold across the country, but the reality is that children are dying of malnutrition since during his ten years in power there and lands owned by farmers are being sold at throwaway prices,’ she alleged.

Gandhi also accused BJP of indulging in divisive politics and claimed that her party never sought power on the basis of religion and worked for the development of all sections.

Modi represents RSS ideology: Rahul Gandhi

BILASPUR, Himachal Pradesh:
BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi represents the ideology of the RSS, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said on Thursday.

Referring to MS Golwalkar, the second ‘Sarsanghchalak’ (Supreme Chief) of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Gandhi said Golwalkar believed India made a huge mistake by giving voting rights to women.

He also slammed Modi over his alleged links with the Adani industrial group and questioned how the business house grew to Rs 40,000 crore during his tenure as the Gujarat chief minister.  ‘You ask that businessman how much employment he has given,’ Gandhi said.
