Raigarh, Feb 8
Lashing out at the Congress party for creating social progress of the people of Chhattisgarh by not letting them get the benefits of Ayushman Bharat Yojana, PM Modi asked, “Why is the Congress so bothered if the poor of this country are getting health benefits of 5 lakh rupees?”
Continuing his attack on the Congress, Prime Minister Modi said, “Congress party not only misled poor people of this country in its 55-year rule but also destroyed their hopes and aspirations for a bright future; while in our 55-months rule, we have done quite the opposite. We have revived their hopes and aspirations and are continuously working towards empowering the poor and making them self-dependent.”
Reacting on the ruling Congress’ decision to ban the CBI from conducting investigations in Chhattisgarh, PM Modi said, “If someone has done no wrong, why would they be scared of investigations? Nearly all the members of the ‘First Family’ of the Congress are being investigated in cases of serious crimes such as tax evasion and property scams. Amidst all this, the Chowkidaar (PM Modi) remains alert of the Congress’ tactics to evade legal procedures and is trying to ascertain their secrets. Their close aides, who are corrupt middle-men are now being handed over to the investigating agencies.”
Reiterating his Lok Sabha statement about the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ as ‘Maha-milawat,’ PM Modi said, “No matter how much these ‘Maha-milawati’ groups come together, the Chowkidaar is going to stay alert of their corrupt actions. They have come together to form a weak government based on personal gains and compromises on crucial issues so that they can continue to loot the country as they have done before. However, nobody prefers ‘milawat,’ because not only is it bad for health but also bad for the country. Thus, I urge you all to remain vigilant and aware of these ‘Maha-milawati(s)’ and reject their divisive politics.”
Concluding his wide-ranging address at the rally, PM Modi highlighted how his government is building memorials and museums to pay tributes and to acknowledge the contributions made by popular tribal heroes from Chhattisgarh in driving their state and the country forward.
