New Delhi(web team): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a scathing attack on Congress party saying it has suddenly remembered the poor.
Referring to Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s recent jibe, in an interview to news agency ANI, Modi said, “Suit-boot is definitely more acceptable than suitcase. After ruling for 60 years, the Congress has suddenly remembered the poor.”
He further added, “People of this country have suffered and remained poor due to short-sighted policies of the Congress. The result of Congress’ politics and governance of sixty years is that poverty is still our biggest challenge.”
Responding to a question on the allegations levelled by the Congress, Modi said, “You should ask them-If you were pro-poor, why does poverty still exist in India?”
“Those who gave away precious natural resources like coal and spectrum to their favourite industrialists have no right to say this,” Modi said referring to the 2G spectrum and coal blocks allocation scams.
Earlier, in an interview to The Tribune, the Prime Minister took a dig at Congress saying that the party was politicising the issue of one-rank-one-pension and have no right to speak on it. “Jawans have been demanding OROP for 57 years but the past governments did nothing when they were in power,” Modi added.
