Congress policies aimed only at winning elections: Narendra Modi
Attacking the Congress for it "arrogance" and "born to rule" mindset, Narendra Modi on Saturday accused the party of formulating policies aimed at only winning elections and not for the country or its future.
Addressing an election meeting in Dwarka Delhi on Saturday ahead of December 4 Delhi assembly polls, BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate said the Congress has frequently changed its names, symbols and policies but not intentions.
"The Congress party has admitted that God has created it to rule. They think they are born to rule and people are in their pockets...Where will they go...sometimes show them the fear of Modi...and gain votes. Congress people are used to enjoying the rule...
"All its policies are aimed at winning elections and not for the nation and neither for its future. If something that has not changed in congress, it is its intention. 'Inki niyat
aisi hai, uss niyat ko le kar desh ka bhala nahin ho sakta'
(Their intentions are such that the nation can never benefit from it," he said.
Modi also launched an attack on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, accusing him of not uttering a single word despite the price rise that has hit the poor and common man.
"During Atal Bihari Vajpayee's regime inflation was at 3.9 per cent. Now under an economist Prime Minister, it is more than 11 per cent. If price rise continues to rise like this, what will the poor eat. The Prime Minister is not ready to take the blame for price rise," he said.
Accusing the Congress for its arrogance, Modi said even though he sought an apology for coming late for Saturday's rally, he said the Prime minister was not ready for taking the blame over price rise.
"Unka ahankar itna hai, mehngai par ek shabd bolne ko tayar nahin hain...mehngayi ka M tak nahin bole. Maro to maro aap ka naseeb (Their arrogance is such that they are not ready to utter a single word, not even the M of Mehngayi. You die, it is your fate," he said.
