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.
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.
