HOSHANGABAD : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday took a jibe at the Congress, saying that not the country, but their hearts are on fire as it has been failing to form a government for the last two terms.

Addressing a public rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Hoshangabad, the PM hit out at the Congress and said that the party used to topple democratic governments across the country like a castle of cards when it was in power.

“For many decades after independence, one family of Congress has run the government directly or through remote control. This family had imposed an Emergency in the country. The Congress used to demolish democratic governments across the country whenever they wanted, like a castle of cards.

According to Congress, democracy was going well at that time but as soon as the son of a poor family became the Prime Minister, Congress started spreading rumours that Modi had come, Constitution and democracy would be in danger,” the PM said.

He further alleged that Congress is threatening that the country will be on fire if he becomes Prime Minister for the third time.

“Now the royal family of Congress is threatening that if Modi becomes Prime Minister for the third time, the country will be on fire. They also said it in 2014, 19, did something like this happen?… Aag desh mein nahi lagi, aag, jalan unke dilon mein lagi hai…” the PM said.

PM Modi further said, “They (Congress) have gone crazy in 10 years and if they keep doing the same thing, this jealousy will burn them to the point that the country won’t give them any other chance.”

Accusing Congress of insulting Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar, the PM said that he is the prime minister of the country due to the Constitution framed by BR Ambedkar.

“Today is the birth anniversary of Constitution maker Babasaheb Ambedkar. His birthplace Mhow is not far from here. We got the privilege of giving him the respect that the Congress party never gave him and parties like Congress have always worked to insult Babasaheb. Because of the Constitution created by Babasaheb, today Modi, son of a poor mother, is seeking your blessings to serve for the third time,” he added.

Narmadapuram, formerly known as Hoshangabad, is part of the Hoshangabad Lok Sabha constituency.

The BJP has fielded a new face, Darshan Singh, from Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh, against Congress nominee Sanjay Sharma, a former MLA.
Hoshangabad will go to the polls on April 26.

Madhya Pradesh has a total of 29 Lok Sabha constituencies, making it the sixth-largest state in terms of parliamentary representation. Out of these, 10 seats are reserved for SC and ST candidates, while the remaining 19 are unreserved.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, BJP secured a massive victory in Madhya Pradesh, winning 28 out of the 29 seats. The Indian National Congress (INC) managed to win only one seat. (ANI)
