“Congress has been busy glorifying one family, nourishing corrupt system…”, PM Modi in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh

BHOPAL: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday made a scathing attack on Congress in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, saying the party "has been busy glorifying only one family," nourishing "corrupt system" and if gets a chance to come into power, it will be a huge loss for the state.

Addressing Karyakarta Mahakumbh in Bhopal, the Prime Minister slammed Congress on a range of issues and said the opposition party "neither has the ability to see nor understand the national interest".

He said Congress does not want to change and does not want the country to change.

"Congress cannot digest the development work in India...They don't want the country to develop. They are never proud of the country's achievements because neither they want to change and neither want the country to change or develop. Congress will make Madhya Pradesh a 'Bimaru Rajya' if it gets a chance (to come into power here). They opposed digital payment but the world is impressed by UPI mode," he said.

"Congress has been busy glorifying only one family.

Congress has been busy nourishing the corrupt system in India. Congress is like rusty iron, which gets corroded if kept in the rain. Now Congress neither has the ability to see nor understand the national interest," he added.

The Prime Minister said that coming years are crucial for Madhya Pradesh.

"If during this crucial time, Congress, a dynasty party, a party full of corruption, gets a chance (to come into power), this will be a huge loss for the state," he said.

The Prime Minister said BJP government in Madhya Pradesh has completed almost 20 years and youth are lucky they have "not witnessed the bad governance of the Congress government".

"This means the youth, who will be voting for the first time in the upcoming elections, have only seen the BJP government. The present youth of Madhya Pradesh are lucky that they have not witnessed the bad governance of the Congress government... Congress turned the state into 'Bimaru Rajya'... BJP has tried to take the state to a new level with new energy... Youth here have seen the development work and good governance of the BJP government," the Prime Minister said.

He said that the 'Karyakarta Mahakumbh' shows the energy of BJP workers.

'Karyakarta Mahakumbh' says a lot of things. This shows what is there in the minds of people here. This shows the energy of the workers of the BJP... Madhya Pradesh is the heart of the country. People of the state have always supported BJP," he said.

PM Modi said Congress had given slogan of ‘Garibi Hatao' fifty years ago but failed to deliver.

"The life of the poor does not matter to their (Congress) leaders, born with silver spoons in their mouth... For them, the life of the poor is adventure tourism... For Congress leaders, poor persons' colonies have become location for video shootings. They have done this in the past too. BJP government is showing the developed and grand face of the country to the world," he said.

He alleged that Congress and other opposition parties tried to prevent Droupadi Murmu from becoming the President.

"These (Congress) are the same people who tried their best to stop the country's first tribal woman President Droupadi Murmu from becoming the President. These are the same people who have repeatedly tried to humiliate her. These people are the same people who had stopped the entry of daughters in the front lines of the country's armed forces," he said.

Madhya Pradesh is among five states which will face assembly polls later this year.
