Op­po­si­tion al­liance op­por­tunist, for their own ex­is­tence: Modi

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi on Sun­day de­rided op­po­si­tion ef­forts to cob­ble up a grand al­liance against the BJP and pitched for his party's re-elec­tion in the com­ing par­lia­men­tary elec­tion, say­ing these "op­por­tunis­tic" al­liance and "dy­nas­tic" par­ties "want to build their own em­pire while we want to em­power peo­ple". Dur­ing an in­ter­ac­tion with booth-level BJP work­ers from five par­lia­men­tary con­stituen­cies in Tamil Nadu via video-con­fer­ence, Modi said, "Un­like other par­ties, we are not in pol­i­tics for di­vide and rule or build­ing vote banks. We are here to serve the coun­try in ev­ery pos­si­ble way." "On one hand we have our de­vel­op­ment agenda and on the other, there are op­por­tunis­tic al­liance and dy­nas­tic par­ties. This elec­tion is an op­por­tu­nity for us to take the agenda of de­vel­op­ment to new heights. On one hand we have our de­vel­op­ment agenda and the vi­sion of sabka saath sabka vikas. On the other hand, there are op­por­tunis­tic al­liance and dy­nasty par­ties," he said.

Such par­ties, the prime min­is­ter charged, "want to build their own em­pire while we want to em­power peo­ple".
