PM Modi Slams Congress 

Hitting out at the Congress party, PM Modi said that earlier the Congress government used to ask for guarantee from the poor, a tradition which was changed after he took over the top post.

When the poor asked for help from the Congress governments, they demanded guarantees. They (Congress) demanded guarantees from everybody. After 2014, the son of a poor man came to power and became the Prime Minister, he said that Modi would become the guarantee for the poor.” 


“The massive development work taking place today could have been undertaken earlier also. But in the years before 2014, the entire focus of the Congress and its allies was only on filling their coffers,” said PM Modi at the rally.  He also said that a permanent house, tap water and gas connection at home, which were once a dream for the poor, “is now becoming a reality”.
