The electoral battle in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh (MP) is getting progressively hotter with the top leaders launching harsh criticism of the rivals.
While addressing a rally in poll bound MP on Sunday (November 18) Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticised the opposition party over the cow protection issue.
PM Modi alleged that on one hand Congress praises cows and talks about its protection on the other hand their leaders in Kerala openly slaughters calves and eat beef. “Are cows in Kerala and MP different for the grand old party? The party is making fools to the innocent public,” accused PM.
“MP ke manifesto mein gai ka gaurav gan karte ho Kerala me khule aam raste par Congress ke log gai ke bacchade kat kar uska mans khate hue tasvir nikal ke batate hain ki gaumans khana hamara adhikar hai. Ab Kerala ki ya MP ki Congress sach hai. Desh ko sach bataye (You eulogize the cow in MP but Congress leaders in Kerala slaughter calf and take pictures of them eating beef. They say eating beef is their right. So, which is the real Congress, the one in Kerala or the one in MP? Tell the truth to the country,” the Prime Minister said.
Modi ridiculed the Congress chief as a “confused leader” and his party as “fused”. “Congress does not have niti (policy), niyat (intent) and neta (leader in MP) and its leader (Rahul) is confused. Will you hand power to such people?” He claimed the Congress chief does not know what NCC stands for and could not describe his experience after visiting Kailash Mansarovar.
“Telling lies is in Congress’s blood,’’ he said. “Can you hand over the state to those whose character is flawed and whose working style is based on lies,’’ he said, targeting Chhindwara MP Kamal Nath.
He talks about the video which went viral on Social Media in which Chhindwara MP and state Congress President Kamal Nath was heard of saying that the winning ability of a candidate matters more to him than his/her character.
The 230-member Madhya Pradesh Assembly will go to the polls on November 28 and the results will be announced on December 11.
