Ghazipur (Uttar Pradesh) [India], May 25 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a scathing attack on the India bloc for appeasement politics, saying that they are performing “mujra to keep their vote bank” intact, adding that till Modi is alive, he won’t allow the rights of ST, SC or OBC to be snatched away.
“I am giving the guarantee to Bihar, SC, ST, OBC communities, till Modi is alive, I will not let them snatch away their rights. For Modi, the Constitution is supreme, for Modi, Babasaheb Ambedkar’s sentiments are supreme… if the INDI alliance wants to accept the servitude of their vote bank, they are free to do so…if they want to perform mujra (dance), they are free to do… I will still stand with the SC, ST, OBC reservation staunchly. Jb tak jaan hai ladta rahunga,” PM Modi said.
PM Modi said that Uttar Pradesh witnessed huge riots under Samajwadi Party rule as they nurtured mafias.
“Under the SP rule, the mafia used to roam around with ‘Lal Batti’. They used to challenge the law in open jeeps. They used to open fire at their nemesis. Riots were an identity of UP. Every month, there used to be 2-3 big riots under the SP rule. This affected the poor, shopkeepers, and businesspersons. Under the Yogi government, riots and rioters, both are gone… The Shehzade of the SP once said that they would stop the entry of the mafia, but then he went and sat at the feet of the mafia. SP nourished the mafia and gave them a ticket…” said PM Modi while addressing a public rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghazipur.
Taking a dig at the Congress party he said that they are an expert in delaying work and usurping people’s rights. They did not even allow our brave army soldiers to get One Rank, One Pension. One Rank, One Pension was implemented when Modi came.
Hitting out at the INDIA bloc over “betraying the people of Ghazipur”, the PM said that after independence, the Congress had vowed that it would not develop this area. The people here are forced to live a life of poverty.
“The problem here was first raised by our Gahmari Babu, he told Nehruji about the situation here in the Parliament and with tears in his eyes Gahmari Babu said how the people here used to eat wheat by picking it from the animal dung. But what did the Congress party do… they found political opportunities in that too. Today I am satisfied that our government is providing free ration to every poor person,” he added further.
