New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday termed the Congress’ Lok Sabha elections 2019 manifesto as “hypocrisy document” and “full of lies”.
Hitting out at the Congress over its sedition law or Section 124A removal promise, PM Modi questioned, “Is Congress with country or traitors?” Addressing a rally in Maharashtra’s Gondia, the Prime Minsiter asked the crowd, “Will you give a chance to those who seek to scrap sedition law.”
Narendra Modi said the last five years of the BJP-led government were spent in “rectifying mistakes” of the UPA regime
PM Modi also said he never claimed to have completed all the works (promised in 2014) in five years, but added several important ones have been completed.
“I have come here to thank you for your trust and blessings in the last five years and to seek them for the next five years,” the PM said.
Recalling the action against terror camps in Pakistan, Modi said, “People have not forgotten the Balakot air strike, despite many saying that they have as months have passed after the action”.
This was Modi’s second poll rally in the state ahead of this month’s Lok Sabha polls in Maharashtra. The first one was at Wardha on April 1.
The Lok Sabha Elections 2019 will begin on April 11 and will be held in seven phases. The model code of conduct came into immediate effect from March 10 and the counting of votes will take place on May 23, 2019.
