Ahead of Maharashtra assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lashed out at the Leaders of Opposition and said that the Centre's decision to scrap Article 370 was for the country and not politically motivated.
Pali: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday (October 17) said that the remarks of every person, who ridiculed and stood against the decision of abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, would be discussed in the future.
Addressing an election rally in Pali, the Prime Minister asserted that the Centre's decision to scrap Article 370 was for the country and not for politics.
"I want to remind the entire country from Beed that whenever Article 370 is discussed in the future, every person who has made fun of the decision, who has stood against and challenged it, will be discussed along with their remarks," PM Modi said.
"On the decision to remove Article 370, while one said it is like 'killing someone', another stated that it is the 'darkest day of Indian politics'. This is the language of our opponents, but I want to tell them whatever we do, we do for the country and not for politics," he added.
Highlighting the internal conflict within the Congress, he said that most of the Congress party leaders are engaged in dealing with infighting of their party.
"The young leaders who were in his (Rahul Gandhi) yantra (control) are also leaving together, and the senior leaders are frustrated today," he said.
Drawing a comparison between the BJP and Congress-NCP alliance in poll-bound Maharashtra, he said, "On the one hand, there is the work ethic of the current government, and on the other, there is the selfishness of the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leaders."
The Prime Minister also asserted that voters would punish the Congress for their misdoings, fake remarks and corruption.
PM Modi also said that ever since the BJP government has stopped the practice of intermediaries, Rs 8.5 lakh crore has been transferred to the bank accounts of the needy in the entire country and Maharashtra has received Rs 42,000 crore.
The Prime Minister expressed happiness over proper railway connectivity, water and electricity supply being provided to the people of Beed. He said that the right environment is being created for the industries in Beed.
