Modi: Vote bank politics hindered development

Bhopal: Ahead of the Madhya Pradesh elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah launched a salvo on Congress from ‘Karyakarta Mahakumbh’ in Bhopal. Attacking the opposition, the Prime Minister said that the Congress party has failed to forge an alliance in the country and therefore are seeking support from outside India. He added that the party has become a burden on the country.

Modi also targeted the opposition on issues of Triple Talaq and said that the vote bank politics being done by a party which was once headed by a woman does not care about the Muslim woman. Modi said that every woman should get equal rights no matter she is Hindu or Muslim but for vote bank politics this situation has been created.


He took a dig at congress saying, “Congress workers should introspect why the party is in this condition now. We lost in 1984. But we didn’t criticise EVMs machines. We looked inwards instead,”.

Modi praised the Madhya Pradesh government. “Nobody should be left behind. The central government along with the state government is constantly working for the development of people. In the various development reports in India (road construction, railways) Madhya Pradesh has topped,” he said.

In his address Modi claimed that the opposition is not able to forge an alliance in India, therefore, they are looking for an alliance outside India. Modi said nothing is left of the Congress party and is a burden on the country and urged party workers to make sure that they do not lose their booth in elections.
