Raipur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a scathing attack on Congress accusing it of being anti-backward, and “hating” the poor, Dalits, tribals, and OBCs, while his BJP works for ensure social justice to ensure everyone’s participation.
Addressing a poll rally in Bilaspur in tribals and OBC-dominated Chhattisgarh, he said: “Congress hates Modi because towards they are shocked as to how this person coming from a backward section of the society became the Prime Minister. They had a reservation on the PM’s chair. That’s why they are not stopping from abusing the entire backward society in the name of Modi. Congress leaders think that even if they abuse this society, nothing will happen.
He also brought up the issue of the former Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s conviction in a 2019 defamation case, calling it another example of the Congress’ “hatred” for the OBCs.
“Court punishes them for OBCs, yet they are not ready to change. This is an example of how much hatred there is for OBCs,” he claimed.
Meanwhile, he also cited the examples of the presidential candidates fielded by the BJP during its two terms – Ramnath Kovind, who hails from a Scheduled Caste (SC) community, and the current President Droupadi Murmu, a tribal woman. Addressing the BJP’s Parivartan Yatras in poll-bound Chhattisgarh, Modi attacked the Bhupesh Baghel-led government in the state over issues such as corruption.
