I.N.D.I.A. plans to have 5 PMs in 5 years: Modi

Says SP, Congress selling lies, family rule, corruption

LUCKNOW: At four back-to-back rallies in Uttar Pradesh’s Lalganj, Jaunpur, Bhadohi, and Pratapgarh on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi continued his unrelenting attack on the Opposition, accusing the SP and the Cong in particular of “selling appeasement, lies, parivarvad and corruption”.

The Prime Minister said that the ongoing general election is an opportunity for the country to choose a leader who can run a strong government, which “makes the world aware of India's strength”. He also repeated his claims that the I.N.D.I.A. bloc wants to make five Prime Ministers in five years and that the Opposition alliance will crumble after June 4.
Hitting out at the Samajwadi Party and the Congress for fielding a Trinamul Congress (TMC) candidate in Bhadohi, Modi said that they want to try out the TMC brand of politics in Uttar Pradesh.
“There is no chance of the Congress-SP emerging victorious in Bhadohi. They wish to do the TMC-style politics of West Bengal in Uttar Pradesh that is modelled on tushtikaran (appeasement). They want to create a replica of preventing the celebrations of Ram Navami and violence against Hindus and women. They wish to replicate the model of governance where they want to promote political protection for terror,” he said.
In Azamgarh, Modi said that earlier people used to think of Azamgarh every time a blast took place anywhere in the country. He asserted that Azamgarh's identity changed a decade ago due to the appeasement politics of the previous SP governments in Uttar Pradesh.
"Terrorists accused of explosions were pardoned. Sleeper cells were given the cover of politics. Due to this attitude, terrorism rose across the country. These people still have the same attitude," Modi said, adding, "The SP and the Congress are two parties but have one shop where they sell appeasement, lies, 'parivarvad' and corruption.
Speaking about Modi’s guarantee, the Prime Minister said, “The CAA is a testimony to Modi's guarantee. Many people have received the certificates under the CAA, belonging to the six minorities who faced the harsh consequences of the partition of India. The I.N.D.I.A. bloc never cared for them as they weren't a part of their votebank and created a web of lies against the CAA. The law will stay and will provide citizenship to all affiliated with India.”
Addressing an election rally organised at a college ground in Jaunpur in support of BJP candidates Kripashankar Singh and B.P. Saroj from the Machhlishahr (reserved) seat, Modi said, "This election is an opportunity to choose the Prime Minister of the country. A Prime Minister who runs a strong government that cannot be dominated by the world but that makes the world aware of India's strength. Therefore, when you vote for our Kripashankar Ji from Jaunpur and Saroj Ji from Machhlishahr, your vote forms a strong government. The votes given to them will go directly into Modi's account."
In Pratapgarh, Modi slammed the Congress and the SP for their lackadaisical attitude towards development, mocking their belief that progress happens effortlessly and dismissing hard work. “The SP and the Congress say that the country’s development will happen on its own. What’s the need to work hard for it?" he said.
Amid slogans of "Jai Shri Ram" and "Har Har Modi", the Prime Minister said, "Your enthusiasm shows that you have made it difficult for the INDIA bloc to win even a single seat in Uttar Pradesh."
"We got the Ram temple in Ayodhya after a wait of 500 years. The entire country is happy. Every Indian living across the world is happy. But these parivarvadis (dynasts) are hurling abuses. The shehzada (prince) of the SP and his uncle call the Ram temple useless (bekar),” he said in apparent reference to a recent statement of SP general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav, who had said that the Ram temple has been built in a useless manner but not as per 'Vaastu'.
Attacking SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, Modi said, "The SP's shehzada also makes fun of Kashi. They are crossing every limit to please their votebank. I am surprised that it is the 21st century and they are roaming around with the flag of triple talaq."
Accusing the leaders of the I.N.D.I.A. bloc of advocating reservation on the basis of religion, he said, "They advocate reservation on the basis of religion. They want to take away the right of reservation of the SCs, STs and OBCs by changing the Constitution of the country."
Repeating his assertion of not allowing religion-based reservations, Modi said, "As long as I am alive, they will not be able to take away the reservations of the OBCs, SCs and tribal people. As long as I am alive, I will not let them do this politics."
In Pratapgarh, the Prime Minister said that the I.N.D.I.A. bloc wants to replace the stable NDA government and make five prime ministers in five years.
"Many things will happen after June 4. The I.N.D.I.A. bloc will disintegrate and they will look for a scapegoat after the defeat. The shehzade of Lucknow and Delhi will leave for abroad on summer vacations," said Mr Modi, adding, "They have gone from Amethi and will go even from Rae Bareli."
