Modi slams ‘con­fused Congress’ in Ra­jasthan

-

Wind­ing up his elec­tion cam­paign in Ra­jasthan, Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi yes­ter­day said vot­ers in the state could not trust the Congress which is a “con­fused” party that nei­ther has any “strong lead­er­ship nor any pol­icy”.

Ad­dress­ing a pub­lic meet­ing here just be­fore the sched­uled close of cam­paign­ing, he said the Congress did not think of adi­va­sis (trib­als) dur­ing its four gen­er­a­tions of gov­ern­ments as it could see noth­ing “be­yond the first fam­ily”.

“The Congress nei­ther has a strong lead­er­ship nor any pol­icy nor in­ten­tions. Can we hand over our Ra­jasthan’s govern­ment to such a con­fused party?” Modi said.

‘Ex­pe­ri­ence’

He said that a strong lead­er­ship meant one “who has ex­pe­ri­ence, whose think­ing is clear, who is sen­si­tive and can take tough de­ci­sions in pub­lic in­ter­est”.

Modi said a sep­a­rate min­istry for tribal af­fairs was formed only dur­ing the Atal Be­hari Vajpayee govern­ment.

“Is there any­thing out­side the [Nehru-Gandhi] fam­ily in Congress?” he asked.
