Amid noisy protests in the Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday attacked the Congress for what he termed as “dividing” Andhra Pradesh and earlier the country in 1947 for political gains.
“This is your character. You divided India. Even after 70 years of Independence, 125 crore people of India continue to suffer because of the poison you sowed. Not a single day passes when people of India are not punished for your sins,” Modi said, speaking in the Lok Sabha on the Motion of Thanks to the President’s address.
“This is the same party that divided India. For decades, one party devoted all their energies to serve one family. The interests of the nation were over looked just for the interests of one family,” PM Modi said.
