Congress’ Shahi Parivar…: PM Modi 

Campaigning at Nanjangud in Mysuru district of Karnataka, PM Modi slammed the Gandhi family accusing them of assignation with foreign leaders “who do not like India”.

“Congress’ Shahi Parivar (Royal family) has been openly inciting foreign powers to interfere and secretly meeting foreign diplomats who do not like India in order to influence the country’s politics,” he said.

Stepping up his attack at Congress, the Prime Minister said the Congress was always at forefront when it came to wrk against the nation.

“In this election, Congress has said that they want to protect the sovereignty of Karnataka. It means that Congress is advocating for Karnataka’s separation from India. The disease of the ‘Tukde Tukde’ gang will reach this high in Congress, I had never thought,” he added.

He further accused the Congress party of “insulting” the Kannada freedom fighters who participated in India’s freedom struggle.”

PM Modi further alleged that the Congress has a history of dividing brothers, making states fight among themselves, and leaving no stone unturned in inciting communal violence.

“Whenever Congress party comes to power, the confidence of terrorists and criminals gets emboldened. They are assured of being protected by the Congress party. We have seen how Congress has repeatedly come in support of terrorists,” he said.
