ATTACKING THE Congress at his public meetings in Rajasthan’s Pali and Hanumangarh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Monday said that the party along with the INDIA alliance wanted to end Sanatan Dharma, and added that it only valued “corruption, dynasty politics and appeasement”.
At the Pali rally, Modi said the people need to teach a lesson to the Congress, which has a “twisted” mentality. Referring to the INDIA alliance as a “ghamandiya gathbandhan (arrogant grouping)”, the PM said: “What all they have said about Sanatan has been seen by the entire country. My mothers and sisters have expressed great resentment… Ending Sanatan means ending the culture of Rajasthan. Will you let them do it?”
In a reference to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s remarks regarding how educated women ensure population control, which have landed him in a controversy, as well as his comments on former CM Jitan Ram Manjhi, the PM said that no one could have believed this was being said in the Assembly.
Modi claimed that INDIA leaders had “started an indecent drive against women” since the passage of the women’s reservation law. “The leaders of the ghamandiya gathbandhan have made indecent remarks about our mothers and sisters. The Chief Minister of Bihar has in the state Assembly used extremely derogatory language for women.”
Asking why the Congress had not said anything to this, Modi said it was because the party does not act for the welfare of women, and went on to attack the Ashok Gehlot government over crimes against women in the state.
With the Congress and other parties attacking the Centre over inflation, Modi said: “Do you remember the mobile bills you paid earlier? If the price of mobiles today was the same as in 2014, then every month, just in phone expenses, you would have to spend Rs 5,000. Today, there are 4-5 mobiles in one family. Tell me, how much money has been saved. This is Modi’s way of working.”
He also mentioned the Jan Aushadhi Kendras providing medicines at “80% discount” and blamed the Congress government for the fuel rates, saying it sells “overpriced petrol”.
Accusing Gehlot of muzzling the media, PM said this was why news related to a “red diary” and “wealth coming out of the lockers of Ganpati Plaza” was not being talked about.

Speaking at another public meeting, in Pilibanga in Hanumangarh district, later on Monday, Modi said he guaranteed that those who have looted the poor will not be spared, and that strict action would be taken against drug smugglers under a BJP government.
At both the meetings, the PM also spoke about his government’s welfare schemes.
In the evening, the PM took out a roadshow in Bikaner, accompanied by Union minister and Bikaner MP Arjun Ram Meghwal.
