Wazirganj: Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Saturday launching a blistering attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “playing low-level politics” by criticising his political opponents on foreign land.
“No other Prime Minister has ever criticised and sullied the image of his political rivals on foreign soil as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has done, showing his narrow mindedness and low-level politics” the Congress President said in her second rally in Bihar. “When he does not take care of the dignity the nation, will he be concerned about your dignity?” Sonia asked.
At her first rally in Magadh region, she raised farmers’ issues and accused the Modi government of taking care of only rich people. “Pulses have become so expensive that common people can’t afford to buy it now. This Magadh region of Bihar is known for pulse production. I want to know whether farmers producing pulses are getting any benefit” she said. Stating that the Modi government was anti-poor, she said, “The government at the centre imported wheat and pulses in large quantities. Did farmers benefit from it? It has only benefitted the middleman.”
Sonia said that during the UPA regime, despite spiraling prices of petroleum, the government controlled prices for common people, but now when prices were consistently going down, the Modi government had not passed the benefit to the people.
Earlier, during her Kahagaon election rally, she referred to the Rs 1.65 lakh crore special package for Bihar, and said, “Modi is misleading the people of Bihar. The PM, an expert in packaging and repackaging, has simply rehashed old schemes of previous governments and presented them as a new package.”
Raising the issue of reservation she said, “There is match fixing going on between Nagpur and BJP. But I want to tell you that Congress is committed to Constitutional provisions on SC, ST and OBC quotas.” She also accused the PM of discriminating opposition-ruled states and questioned his slogan ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’”.
Mocking the PM’s frequent foreign trips, she said, “Narendra Modi loves going abroad…loves embracing famous people but he has no time for the poor.”
