Bhadohi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Bhadohi showered praise on his government saying,’The country has seen four types of parties, Naampanthi, Vaampanthi, Daam aur Damapanthi and the fourth which has been brought by us is Vikaspanthi.”
Bhadohi which has a sizeable Muslim population goes to polls on May 12 in the sixth phase. Addressing the crowd, Modi said, “I would like to tell the Muslim sisters of Bhadohi and across the nation, several countries don’t have the provision for Triple Talaq. We want to give the same rights to our Muslim sisters which have been provided to the sisters in Muslim countries.”
He further said, “We don’t disrespect anyone’s religious faith we just follow the constitution. The constitution provides for equal rights to both men & women.”
On Saturday, Modi had launched a scathing attack on Congress president Rahul Gandhi saying that the life of his father, late former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, ended as ‘Bhrastachari number 1’.
While addressing a BJP rally in Pratapgarh district of Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, PM Modi also accused Rahul of ‘attempting to tarnish his image over the Rafale issue’. He claimed that the Congress president himself had admitted in a interview that his only aim is to tarnish the image of Modi.
“Your father was termed ‘Mr Clean’ by his courtiers, but his life ended as ‘Bhrashtachari No 1’ (corrupt number 1),” Modi had said, in an apparent reference to the Bofors case in 1980s.
He added, “By hurling abuses, you cannot turn the 50 long years of Modi’s tapasya (struggle) into dust” .”Na main gira aur na meri ummeedon ke minar gire, par kuch log mujhe girane mein kayi baar gire,” Modi had stated.
