New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday took potshots at opposition’s attempts to cobble a grand alliance to take on the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, saying that people do not want a “mahamilavat” (highly adulterated) government as they have seen how the NDA government which has a majority can deliver.
“People do not want a ‘mahamilavat’ (adulterated) government of those who assembled in Kolkata,” said PM Modi in a hard-hitting reply to a debate on motion of thanks to President’s address in Lok Sabha.
PM Modi’s reference was to the mega opposition rally called by TMC chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata where leaders from 22 opposition parties came together and declared they will fight unitedly to oust the Narendra Modi government which has “passed its expiry date”.
Today’s speech in the Lok Sabha has been the most hard-hitting attack by PM Modi against the Congress where he gave a point-to-point rebuttal on a host of issues like the Rafale deal, unemployment and corruption, which the main opposition party has used to attack the NDA government.
Taking on the Congress, PM Modi alleged that those who imposed Emergency, “bullied” the judiciary and insulted the Army were accusing him of destroying institutions.
He also said that for some BC stands for ‘before Congress’ and AD for ‘after dynasty’.
“A government has to work for the people of India, a government has to be sensitive to the people’s aspirations. There is no room for corruption.
“We speak the truth, be it in country or outside, in Parliament or outside but your ability to listen to truth has diminished,” he said, targeting the opposition.
