Modi Slams Congress


Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday said the best remedy to eradicate poverty is to do away with that party, which has always used poverty as a ‘Weapon’.

 
Accusing the Congress of always using poverty as a major political weapon, Mr.Modi called upon the electorate to reject the party.
 
"The Congress has all along been reaping political benefits by employing poverty as a major weapon. Poverty cannot be eradicated as long as the Congress exists," Modi said addressing the BJP's election rally in Sonepur which falls under Balangir Lok Sabha constituency in Western Odisha.
 
Giving a call for "Congress Hatao", Mr.Modi said poverty will disappear on its own if the Congress is removed.
 
Noting that the Congress only gave slogans for eradication of poverty for generations but never took any step to ensure it, he said poor people have turned poorer and their leaders and ministers became richer.
 
The Congress as well as the BJD used poverty for politics for which a major part of the country and Odisha was in immense poverty for decades.
 
As a result, the Left Wing Extremists are taking advantage of the situation, Mr.Modi said.
 
State Legislative Assembly election in Odisha is scheduled to be held along with the Lok Sabha polls in four phases beginning 11 April.
