Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday broke security protocol again as he was in Mizoram to address a rally on Friday. In a video accessed by Republic TV, PM Modi can been seen standing on the foot-board of his car as he greets the crowd gathered to witness his rally in Lunglei.
The video shows PM Modi sticking outside his car--standing on the foot-board-- alongside one of his security guards. As his vehicle approaches the locals standing on both side of the road, he waves and greets them. The crowd is seen cheering and calling out the Prime Minister's name only to direct his attention towards them. Other security personnel can be seen controlling the crowd to avoid any undesirable incident.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed the Congress for ignoring the aspirations of the people in Mizoram, the only Congress-ruled state in Northeast, and said the party's rule has left the state behind in terms of development.
"The Congress party, which once governed a maximum number of states, is now restricted to just two or three states. Now, the people of Mizoram have a golden opportunity to rid themselves of this Congress culture," PM Modi said.
The priority for Congress is not the people of Mizoram, it is fighting to gain power, the PM charged.
"I feel deep sense of anguish when I see a Congress leader abused traditional dress of northeast states, calling them outlandish. Your hopes, ambitions do not matter to the Congress. Their priority is power and not the people of Mizoram," he further stated.
In the last four years, the BJP government at the Centre, has worked for greater recognition of Indian culture and traditions, far and wide, PM Modi asserted.
Meanwhile, election in the 40-member Mizoram assembly is scheduled for November 28.
