Congress like ‘rusted iron’, promoted corruption, poverty & appeasement politics: PM Modi


Bhopal, Sep 25: With an eye on the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday tore into Congress equating the party with “rusted iron” which he said would push MP back into the BIMARU category if given an opportunity again.

Addressing a gathering of BJP workers ‘Karyakarta Mahakumb', the prime minister said the Congress and its allies in the “Ghamandia” bloc supported the Women's Reservation Bill out of compulsion and hesitation as they understood the power of “nari shakti”.

He said if given an opportunity, Congress will back out on this bill that seeks to provide 33 per cent reservation to women in Parliament and state legislatures.

The ‘Karyakarta Mahakumbh' was organised on the birth anniversary of Jana Sangh co-founder Deendayal Upadhyaya to mark the formal culmination of the BJP's ‘Jan Ashirwad Yatras' that crisscrossed the length and breadth of the state.

“Congress is a parivarwadi party with a history of crores of corruption and vote-bank appeasement. It's like rusted iron that will be finished if kept in the rain,” Modi said.

He also targeted Rahul Gandhi without taking his name, saying for Congress leaders born with a silver spoon, “the life of poor people is like an adventure and picnic and the poor person's agri field is a place for video shooting and photo session”.

Modi said first-time voters in MP are fortunate that they have seen only the BJP rule in the state, which is the key centre of 's development vision.

For a developed India, MP too needs to be developed, he added.

Modi said Congress wanted people to remain poor in its own interest. “During its erstwhile rule, Congress had pushed MP, which has rich resources, into a BIMARU (laggard) state”.

He said more than 13.5 crore people came out of poverty under the BJP rule in the last five years in the country.

“The Congress had turned MP into BIMARU state during its long rule after Independence. It will make MP BIMARU again if it gets an opportunity,” Modi added.

He slammed Congress for criticising the BJP over the construction of the new Parliament building, quality roads and modern stations.
