Priyanka Gandhi Remark Over PM Modi: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said on Saturday (April 29) that she has seen the only Prime Minister in the form of Narendra Modi who, instead of listening to the grievances of the people, narrates his grievances in front of them.
“I have seen many prime ministers from Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, PV Narasimha Rao, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh,” he told a public meeting in Nawalgund town of Dharwad district ahead of the May 10 assembly elections in Karnataka. But he (Modi) is the first Prime Minister who, instead of listening to the grievances of the people, narrates his grievances to them.
Priyanka Gandhi made these allegations against BJP
The Congress general secretary alleged that the BJP government in the state does not respect anyone, be it the people, their votes or the state it is ruling, or senior leader Jagadish Shettar, who was recently denied ticket. After joining the Congress or the entire Lingayat community.
He said, “Corruption is done so brazenly that those who are corrupt are getting tickets (to contest elections) and those who are not, were denied tickets. He (Modi) calls up corrupt people and drives away honest people.
He said that when people are not respected, it is not in the interest of the country and the state, leaders forget that people make them leaders and governments are formed only to grab power and make money.
‘There is so much corruption that the son of an MLA…’
Priyanka Gandhi alleged, “Contractors are committing suicide. The school management and the contractors union write letters to the prime minister about corruption, but nothing happens. There is so much corruption that an MLA’s son is caught with Rs 8 crore in cash, but no action is taken.”
Significantly, on May 10, voting for the assembly elections is to be held in Karnataka. The election results will be declared on May 13.
