Chaibasa (Jharkhand): Going all out to attack Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said here that the grand old party should try contesting Lok Sabha elections over two issues, Bofors scandal and Bhopal gas tragedy, which happened during the regime of then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi.

PM Modi said the ‘mahamilavat’ surrendered after the fourth phase and now, with the fifth phase also over, they were faltering.

Attacking former CM Madhu Koda, who is the husband of Geeta Koda, Congres candidate from Singhbhum, PM Modi said Congress snatched the land of the tribal people of Kolhan. He said the tribals lost their land to coal scam but didn’t get any benefit. It is for all to see who snatched their land, and who benefited.

The PM said Congress and its allies were spreading lies but the country could not be fooled by anymore. He said the country wants a stable government, not one that will be run by remote control.

He said Congress looted the nation in the 20th century but the youth of the 21st century should know about it.

Attacking West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the PM said, “Didi has thrown people in jail for chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. I thought of saying Jai Shri Ram here so that she can throw me inside jail too. That way, the people of Bengal might be protected from the wrath of TMC regime.”

The PM also slammed CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury for his “derogatory” remarks against Ramayana and Mahabharata. He said the Left leader did not show any respect to even his own name. “It has become a fashion for communists to use derogatory language against Hindu religion,” he said.
