"Congress and INDI alliance are busy insulting our faith": PM Modi

April 19, 2024 04:46 PM

Damoh (Madhya Pradesh) : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that the Congress and INDIA bloc are busy insulting the Hindu faith and beliefs adding that these were the same people who called the worship of Lord Ram a "paakhand" (hyprocrisy).


Addressing an election rally in Damoh, Prime Minister Modi said, "Congress and INDI alliance are busy insulting our faith. These people say that our Sanatan is dengue and malaria. They were against the Ram Temple that had been built in Ayodhya. These people call the worship of Lord Shri Ram 'paakhand' (hypocrisy). These were the same people who did not come to Ayodhya to attend Pran Pratishta. It is just for vote bank politics."


He further said that the current BJP-led centre does not bow before anyone as its principle is "nation first". "Aaj desh mein vo BJP sarkar hai jo na kisi se dabti hai aur na hi kisi ke saamne jhukti hain' (Today's BJP government does not get pressurised and does not bow before anyone). Our principle is nation first. India should get cheap oil, hence we took the decision in the interest of the country. Today, the condition of many countries in the world is very bad, many countries are going bankrupt," PM said.


"This is an election to make India a big power in the world. When there is an atmosphere of war in the world, then a government working on a war footing is very important in India. In such a time, there should be a strong government and only the BJP government with full majority can do this," he added. Taking a jibe at Pakistan, the Prime Minister said the neighboring country is struggling for wheat flour.

 

"Hamara ek padosi jo aatank ka supplier tha vo ab atta (flour) ki supply ke liye taras raha hai (Our neighbor which used to supply terrorism is struggling for supply of flour)...," he said.
PM Modi also congratulated the countrymen over the export of BrahMos missile to Philippines. "Now we are also exporting BrahMos missile. The first batch of this missile is going to the Philippines today. I congratulate all the countrymen on this," he said.


Prime Minister further appealed to the public to vote for the BJP-NDA alliance as it will help fulfill the dream of "Vikshit Bharat". Voting for the first phase of Lok Sabha elections 2024 began on Friday across 102 parliamentary constituencies spread over 21 states and Union Territories as the mega seven-phase electoral exercise commenced at 7:00 am.
