Mounting attack on the Congress Party, PM Narendra Modi said that the actions of Congress are proving it again that the grand old party considers itself above country, democracy, judiciary and public. “Their actions, their conspiracies are proving it again and again that they (Congress) consider themselves above country, democracy, judiciary and public. 2 days ago, we saw another example of it (Rafale). Stay alert and safe from such people & parties,” he said.
He further alleged that the Congress that has ruled the nation for the longest duration of time, has always considered itself above law, judiciary, every agency and even above the nation. This party destroyed every agency that didn’t work according to them, he alleged.
Modi also visited the ‘Akshayavat’ in Prayagraj before proceeding to Andawa to dedicate to the nation various development projects to clean the Ganges and ghats ahead of the Kumbh Mela, which begins on January 15. The Prime Minister said that devotees will be able to offer prayers at Akhsay Vat, which has been under closure for years, during Ardha Kumbh.
“I am here to give you a good news. This time, devotees will be able to visit Akshay Vat in Ardha Kumbh. It was confined in Akshay Vat Fort for generations, but this time every devotee visiting the place will be fortunate to visit Akshay Vat,” PM announced. The prime minister then left for Bamrauli Airport, Prayagraj, to inaugurate the new terminal building of the airport, before returning to Delhi.
Earlier, PM accused previous governments of neglecting the constituency. Taking on the Congress in Sonia Gandhi’s home turf, Raebareli, Modi attacked Congress party over Rafale farmers, army and said that the opposition party does not live up to its promises. PM attacked the grand old party by invoking Bofors and Agusta defence deals.
PM Modi inaugurated a Command and Control Centre for the Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj, where he went after addressing a public gathering in Raebareli. Modi also performed Ganga Pujan at Sangam ghat in the holy city.
The prime minister laid the foundation stone of some projects and inaugurated few others worth Rs 1,100 crore during his first visit to Sonia Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency.
He also flagged off the 900th coach and Humsafar rake made by the Modern Coach Factory here.
“The Centre is committed to the development of Raebareli. Earlier governments neglected it,” Modi said in his first public meeting after the BJP’s loss in recent Assembly polls.
Uttar Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party media co-incharge Navin Srivastava on Saturday told PTI, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting Rae Bareli and then he will be in Allahabad.”
