Modi slams Cong’s ‘appeasement politics’

Mandsaur, Nov 24 (IANS) | Publish Date: 11/24/2018 11:35:38 AM IST

Attacking Congress Chief Ministerial aspirant Kamal Nath over the leaked video in which he is seeking heavy voting by Muslims, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday asked people to save the state from “this politics of appeasement”. He also made a veiled attack on Kamal Nath linking him to the anti-Sikh riots of 1984. 

“Congress party is showing its true colours. It knows it is hard to save its people. Its scams are being uncovered. Kamal Nath video is out in the market. Whose votes is he seeking in that video. “This is democracy we need everyone’s votes, whether he is HIndu or Muslim, rich or poor. Every Indian who is a voter... but they (Congress) don’t... they say don’t rely on tribal votes. Is this not disrespect to democracy. Do these people have a right to contest election, brothers and sisters wipe out Congress,” he said. Modi said “don’t be mistaken by what Kamal Nath is saying. What he is saying are his own words. He’s been a courtier of this family (Gandhi family) for decades. He is doing the bidding of ‘naamdaar’. I urge you to save Madhya Pradesh from this politics of appeasement.”

Referring to Kamal Nath’s reported remarks that the “mills of Congress grind slow but fine”, the Prime Minister said with a tinge of sarcasm, “Shrimaan Kamal Nath ji, everyone knows how fine you grind.. everyone knows about 84 riots. We can’t let the future of Madhya Pradesh be ruined by trusting these people.”

He said the Congress nationalised the banks saying that there was a monopoly of rich people on it and that they wanted banks to serve in the interest of the poor. 

“Was this for helping the poor.. was it a fraud or not? The promise that Indira Gandhi could not fulfil, Modi did with Jan Dhan Yojana. Those who could not fulfil their promises for 40 years, would you believe them now” 

“And in 2008 also, they had made the same promise of loan waiver. No one will tell you this thing but it is important to know the truth. Madam Sonia’s remote-control government had made the decision. Manmohan Singh was also there. To win the election they made the promise. of loan waiver.. Then the loans of farmers amounted to Rs six lakh crore . How much did they waive.. only Rs 60,000 crore.”
