Congress hates labour class; Modi addresses meetings in Bihar


GAYA (Bihar): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said the Congress party hates the labour class and looks down upon those who do menial jobs to sustain their livelihood.

Referring to the Congress party as ‘Mahamilavat,’ he said: “The ‘Mahamilavat’ hates everyone who does his job. They hate ‘Chowkidar’, ‘Chaiwala’, ‘Jhadoowala’, ‘Safaiwala.’ They cannot see a person prospering and progressing in his life by doing his work. This is the only reason why the ‘Chowkidar’ is being abused,” said Prime Minister Modi, while addressing an election rally.

He said that before 2014 there were bomb blasts all across the country in which thousands of innocents were being killed, but after the NDA came to power at the Centre all this stopped. 

“The Indian Mujahedeen and Hizbul Mujahideen created an atmosphere of terror but they all went into silos after 2104. Where these sleeper cells have gone? The police are the same. The intelligence agencies are the same. The information network is the same. Skills are the same. Then what has changed,” asked Prime Minister Modi.

 Ambedkar defeat

 Meanwhile, addressing in Jamui (Bihar), Narendra Modi accused the Congress of “neglecting” architect of Indian Constitution BR Ambedkar and plotting various conspiracies to “defeat” the Dalit icon.

“Recall how the Congress treated architect of our Constitution, Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar. How he got neglected? Congress plotted many conspiracies to defeat him. Congress did everything possible to have Babasaheb defeated. It conspired to have his memory erased from the public mind. It is important that youth of today knows about these facts,” he said at a public rally here where Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) leader Chirag Paswan, son of party president Ram Vilas Paswan, is in the fray.

The Prime Minister claimed that the Congress remembered honouring its own family members, but “forgot” about Ambedkar. It was due to BJP’s efforts that Ambedkar was posthumously awarded the country’s highest civilian award Bharat Ratna, he said.
