My Times Today. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a scathing attack on the Congress, billing it a “lollipop company” that had no real concern for the country’s farmers.
The Prime Minister made these remarks while addressing a big rally at Ghazipur in eastern Uttar Pradesh.
During his speech, the Prime Minister asked the gathering to be wary of the sops and promises being made the Congress.
These people are trying to lure you short-term benefit announcements and promises but all this will not help” he said in an apparent dig at the Congress which has rolled out loan waivers for farmers in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan after its victory in the assembly elections that dislodged the ruling BJP.
“Taatkalik fayde ke liye ki gayi ghosnanyein kabhi sarthak nahin ho sakte (Announcements made for instant benefits won’t be successful in the long run),” PM Modi said as the people applauded.
“these announcements are being done to fool the people,” the Prime Minister said.
Referring to the long queues of farmers for urea in Madhya Pradesh, where the Congress recently came to power after 15 years, PM Modi said this was an example of what hasty promises with an eye on votes can lead to.
