PM Narendra Modi on Monday thrashed Congress for labeling charges of being anti-poor against him. In a veiled reference to Congress President-elect Rahul Gandhi, PM Modi said that those born with silver-spoon will not understand the meaning of poverty. “During peak summer, I would go to the villages of Gujarat and ask parents to educate their children,” Modi said. “Whose children were they? Were they Ambani’s children? No. They were children of the poor. We are working for poor,” he added. Modi also said that Congress is apathetic towards poor and its basic knowledge towards farmers is very poor. “Our farmers work hard and grow potato. If at all the Congress comes to power, there will be no need to do that because their leader says we will produce potatoes in factories! Congress’ basic knowledge about agriculture is so poor,” Modi said.

Here are the other highlights of PM Narendra Modi’s address:

– When we went to the farmers, did Krishi Mahotsav, we did not go out helping the rich. We went among the poor. Sadly, Congress leaders born with golden spoons will never understand what poverty is.

– During peak summer, I would go to the villages of Gujarat and ask parents to educate their children. Whose children were they? Were they Ambani’s children? No. They were children of the poor. We are working for poor.

– Our farmers work hard and grow potato. If at all the Congress comes to power, there will be no need to do that because their leader says we will produce potatoes in factories! Congress’ basic knowledge about agriculture is so poor

– When this area was flooded the Chief Minister, former Chief Minister, Ministers came and stood with people here. The Prime Minister reviewed the situation. All this while, Congress MLAs were enjoying in resorts

– Around as they know people here will support BJP. They have now taken to excuses. Their leaders and cheerleaders are blaming EVMs, including saying they are hacked using Bluetooth

    With economy still in turmoil, un-employment increasing day by day, Jobs creation looks distant dream, reforms and demo has been done in extremely pathetic way, Though I don't like BJP should loose in Gujarat and the present rhetoric seems drifting away from development, job growth, un-employment and economic conditions... Feels highly disappointed with the present positioning of BJP, If this continues without any course corrections, 2019 BJP's demise in imminent. People are now fed up with half baked reforms which brings all the pain to the masses...
