New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on the grand old party, saying that the Congress has harboured so much hatred for him, that it “dreamt of killing” him.

Addressing a poll rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Itarsi, PM Modi said, “Sochiye, Congress walon ko aapke Modi se itni nafrat ho gayi hai ki woh Modi ko maarne tak ke sapne dekhne lage hain (Congress has so much hatred for me that it even dreams of killing me, but the entire nation is batting for me)”.

Further, the Prime Minister also mocked the Congress’ promise of farm loan waiver within ten days of government formation in Madhya Pradesh, saying that “it is yet to happen.”

Dubbing the Congress as a “dishonest” party, Narendra Modi alleged it is only sincere in propagating dynastic rule and corruption. PM Modi said the Congress culture was to “hold back” development schemes. He said Madhya Pradesh, where the Congress came to power in December last year, was facing acute water shortage because of the ruling party’s policy of not expediting irrigation schemes.

“The Congress is a dishonest party at all levels. It is only honest in propagating dynastic rule and corruption.

“The BJP works in a mission mode for the overall development of the country. The Congress works for the welfare of new generation of dynasts,” he said.

In an earlier attack, PM Modi had said that the “grand old party and its allies think about self and not national interest”. Narendra Modi asserted, “Congress was not ready to accept surgical and Balakot Airstrike as our (BJP)’s victory”.

In another scathing attack, PM Modi had earlier said, “Congress is facing an existential crisis and is trying to divide society”. “The Congress-led government went crying around post-Mumbai Attacks; Now, wherever Pakistan goes, you hear its cries that Modi is hitting them,” PM Modi added.

Madhya Pradesh has a total of 29 Lok Sabha seats. While six of them went to the polls in the first phase on April 29, the remaining 23 constituencies will vote on May 6, 12 and 19.
