Lucknow/New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi ripped into the Congress for spreading canards on dilution of the SC/ST Act and farmers’ issues for narrow political gains as he inaugurated two highways connecting Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi and its satellite cities. 

The PM also attacked the Congress for creating a crisis of confidence by pointing fingers at the Supreme Court, raising doubts on the Election Commission and EVMs, eyeing with suspicion the Reserve Bank and its policies and questioning every agency that investigates their acts of omissions and commissions. 

 

“The Congress negates the valour of the Army that conducted surgical strikes across the border and questions foreign dignitaries who praise India. And now they are accusing the media of being biased too,” he added.

After the Delhi-Meerut road’s inauguration, Mr Modi rode an open car and held a huge roadshow. While travelling on a 9-km stretch till UP Gate, Mr Modi had assembled along the road since 8 am. 

From there, he took a helicopter to Baghpat where he inaugurated the EPE that will reduce the volume of commercial traffic by 35 per cent in Delhi, allowing 52,000 vehicles to bypass the national capital every day. 

 

At his rally in Baghpat, Mr Modi touched upon key issues affecting the area, including cane prices, special commission for dalits and law and order. 

While talking about social justice, Mr Modi said his government is committed to protection of Dalits and has constituted special courts for fast-track hearing of cases of atrocities against them. 

Mr Modi highlighted his government’s concern for women empowerment and said that toilets built under Swachh Bharat Mission and LPG connections under Ujjwala Yojana are making lives of women easier. 

 

He said that out of 13 crore loans given under Mudra Yojana, more than 75 per cent have been given to women entrepreneurs.
