Modi mocks Rahul’s PM ambition


Team Udayavani, May 9, 2018, 4:56 PM IST

Bangarapete: Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked Congress President Rahul Gandhi for his ambition of becoming the Prime Minister, in a rally in Bangarpet on Wednesday. He criticised Rahul Gandhi for only harbouring dreams, while being unable to manage the internal democracy prevalent in the Congress. He said that the arrogance of Rahul Gandhi had “reached cloud seven” and wondered if such an “immature and naamdar” person will be elected for the post.

This comes as a response to Rahul Gandhi’s statement that if the Congress emerges as the majority in the Lok Sabha election, he would become the Prime Minister. “All of a sudden one person came and declared. He did not care about others who are standing in the line. He did not care about other coalition partners. There are leaders waiting for 40 years for this post,” said Mr. Modi.

Responding to news of forging an anti-BJP front, Mr. Modi said that there were a lot of meetings taking place to try to remove him from power, but Mr. Gandhi’s statement indicates the level of no-confidence within the coalition. He also added that such a statement was reflective of the leader’s arrogance.

“The naamdar who does not have confidence in his alliance partners… who doesn’t care for Congress’ internal democracy, whose arrogance has reached cloud seven, and is declaring himself that he would be the prime minister in 2019… Will the country ever accept such an immature ‘naamdar’ leader?” Modi told an election rally in Bangarapet town in Kolar district of the southern Indian state of Karnataka

“Yesterday in Karnataka and India’s politics something happened. All of a sudden one person came and he declared… did not care about others who are standing in the line. Did not care about other coalition partners

“There are leaders waiting for 40 years… he came all of a sudden and placed his bucket, and said I will become the prime minister,” Modi said during the final lap of his campaign blitz in the election-bound state, where voting will be held on May 12

The prime minister asked the gathering whether it was not a reflection of the Congress president’s “arrogance”

He also wanted to know whether it did not show the state of internal democracy in the Congress party

He also criticised the former Congress government at the Centre, led by former PM Manmohan Singh. He said that during that period, Mr. Singh was controlled by the then Congress President Sonia Gandhi, whereas in his rule, he was controlled by the people of the country. Mr. Modi outlined six Cs which would destroy the future of Karnataka- Congress culture, communalism, casteism, crime, corruption and contract system.
