PM Narendra Modi in Haryana Updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday accused Congress leaders of spreading rumours in the country and abroad over the recent scrapping of Article 370. He urged the voters to punish the opposition party for this in the upcoming assembly polls. “Some leaders of the Congress have been spreading rumours about this decision in the country and in the world. You can abuse Modi as much as you can and even import abuses from Bangkok, Thailand, Vietnam or from wherever you want. I have no problem if you speak against Modi. But they should stop backstabbing India, which is on the path of progress,” he said, in a barb directed at the Congress.
The prime minister also said that the Centre was making all arrangements to celebrate the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev across the world.
He addressed public meetings in Charkhi Dadri and Kurukshetra’s Thanesar town on his second visit in two days to the state that goes to the polls on October 21.
