AZAMGARH/JAUNPUR/ALLAHABAD: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday targeted Opposition parties for corruption, causing instability and putting the nation’s security in peril in his whistlestop campaign in eastern UP. He urged people not to elect a ‘khichdi’ government to avoid anarchy and instability.
In back-to-back rallies in Azamgarh, Jaunpur and Allahabad, Modi continued his attack on Congress and raised the issue of Commonwealth Games 2009, saying the corruption trail had tarnished the country’s image. He also claimed to have wiped out the terror tag on Azamgarh.
“Commonwealth Games were held in the country. It was a chance to showcase Indian sports talent to the world but it is instead remembered for the massive corruption by Congress government,” he said in Allahabad. “We witnessed anarchy and instability 20 years ago in United Front era. You will have to be alert as some people (Opposition) are trying again to form a ‘khichdi’ and ‘mahamilavati’ government,” said Modi.
Targeting the Opposition alliance, Modi said that SP planned to oust BSP from politics. “Mayawati will understand this on May 23. Behan-ji is seeking votes for those who humiliated Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar by calling him land mafia. ‘Bua’ had said five years ago that the ‘son’ (Akhilesh) is more poisonous than the ‘father’ (Mulayam). Kindly tell us if you have digested that poison now,” said Modi.
