Snake barb will make people rally behind PM: Amit Shah


Navalgund, Apr 28 (UNI) Taking a dig at AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge’s venomous snake jibe, Union Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah on Friday claimed it would only increase support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. By accusing PM Modi, Shah said, the Congress leaders have lost their mind as they are short of issues to take on BJP in the runup to May 10 assembly election in Karnataka.

“The Congress chants ‘Modi teri khabar khudegi; Sonia Gandhi says ‘Maut Ka Saudagar; Priyanka Gandhi ‘neechi jati ke log’; and he (Kharge) calls PM Modi ‘Vishela Samp’ (venomous snake). Congress people, you have lost your minds. How much ever you abuse Modi, lotus will bloom,” he said, addressing a public rally here.

Raising his voice, Shah asked the people whether they would vote for Congress which called PM Modi a poisonous snake. “Congress President Kharge (Kharge) says our leader (PM) Modi, whom the whole world respects and welcomes, is a poisonous snake. I want to ask you, can you make the Congress party, which called Modi a venomous snake, victorious in the election?” he asked.

Shah said the Congress is abusing Modi because they are lacking on issues. “In the last nine years, Modi has globally increased India’s pride, worked for India’s prosperity, made India’s infrastructure strong and made India safe at the borders. Wherever Modi ji visits around the globe, he is welcomed with chants of Modi-Modi,” he said. Kharge on Thursday had called Modi a poisonous snake, but later clarified that he had not trained his guns on the PM, but on the BJP’s ideology. Taking a dig at senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Shah said the Congress Prince can never understand their pain as Modi understands, because he belongs to one such family.

“Only a member of a poor family can understand the pain of the poor. Those Congress Shehzada (Congress Prince) can never understand the pain of the poor,” he said.

Shah said the Congress party does not have any right to seek votes from Navalgund farmers because its government had ordered the police to fire at them.”The Congress which had ordered police to fire at the protesting farmers and lathi-charged them has no right to ask for a vote from Navalgund. Congress has done nothing for the farmers of the state. BJP has done a lot of work for the people of Karnataka.”

Nearly 43 years back, police opened fire on violent agitating farmers in which two farmers and three policemen were killed.

The incident sparked off violent protests by farmers all over the state and also resulted in the fall of Gundu Rao’s government and emergence of the first ever non-Congress government in Karnataka- the Janata Party regime headed by Ramkrishna Hegde.

Farmers argued that the collection of betterment levy from farmers was unjustified as the benefits of the Malaprabha project had not reached them.

The assembly elections in Karnataka are scheduled to take place on May 10 and the votes will be counted on May 13. UNI BDN SSP
