Taking a dig at Trinamool Congress’s mega rally, PM Modi said, “My actions against corruption have infuriated some people. It’s but natural for them to get angry as I’ve prevented them from looting public money. Consequently, they have now formed an alliance called ‘Mahagathbandhan’.”
PM Modi said that this ‘ganthbandhan’ is not against him but against the people of India. He also added that currently, they are not even properly together and already that have started bargaining for their share.
“They may form as many alliances as they want to, but they will not be able to get away with their misdeeds,” said Prime Minister Modi adding, “This will get them to newspapers, but they will not be able to win people’s hearts like this. Nobody cares about those who are disconnected from the ground.”
“Those who crushed democracy in their own state are now preaching about saving the democracy. It’s truly ironical,” PM Modi said in Silvassa, where he inaugurated some projects on Saturday after attending the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit.
Accusing the Opposition of being corrupt, Modi said, “This is a fight between optimistic thinking and pessimistic attitude, a fight between development and corruption, a fight between public and the mahagathbandhan.”
At the massive rally at Kolkata’s Brigade Parade ground, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee welcomed the opposition leaders and let them speak to the crowd about their plans for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections due in May.
PM Modi faces a united opposition in the national elections, which will make the fight tougher.
