  • Addressing a rally in Maharashtra's Wardha, PM Modi attacked the Congress for the UPA-era 'Hindu terror' charge
  • Alluding to Rahul Gandhi, he said that the Congress chief is now also contesting from Kerala because he is paying a price of calling Hindus terrorists

On day five his campaign blitz for Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a massive rally at  Wardha, Maharashtra. In his blistering speech on Monday morning, he launched an attack on Congress President Rahul Gandhi and NCP chief Sharad Pawar - the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance's opponents for the Maharashtra Lok Sabha polls. He urged voters not to vote against the ‘mahamilavat’ of NCP and Congress alliance.

Commenting on Congress' announcement on Sunday that its chief Rahul Gandhi will contest from the Wayanad constituency in Kerala apart from his bastion Amethi, in the upcoming Lok Sabha 2019 polls. PM said:

''People who were called terrorist by the Congress and its president have now risen. Congress pre-fixed the term ‘terrorist’ with the peace-loving Hindu society. The Hindu society that believes the world to be its family was said to be involved in terror activities. They joined 'terrorism' with Hindu. That is why, now he is not daring to fight the election from a place where the majority lives. He is paying a  price of calling Hindus terrorists. Therefore, he ran away and is fighting the election from a place where majority is in minority, he is forced to take a shelter in such a place.''

In the same speech, the Prime Minister also accused the NCP-Congress alliance of 'sleeping' and doing nothing while in power:

"NCP-Congress, when together in power, sleep for six months each. One wakes up, loots people's money, and goes back to sleep......" he said before adding, "When farmers went to Ajit Pawar asking about water, what answers did they get? When farmers of Mawal were fighting for their rights, the Pawar family ordered firing at them.
