NEW DELHI: BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Sunday attacked Samajwadi Party and Congress over their “secularism” plank.
Slamming SP, BSP and Congress, Narendra Modi on Sunday said they are misleading people by wearing a veil of secularism to hide their failures.
“They say forget jobs, forget water, forget prices let’s talk of secularism. It is under threat”, said Modi while addressing a rally in Lucknow.
“Though heat of elections is yet to be felt, there is a wave in favour of BJP due to which “sabka vinash” (destruction of all (opposition)) is certain … For them secularism is all about vote bank to mislead the people,” Modi told the massive crowd.
Hitting back at Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, Modi said, “He has accepted defeat in these elections. The SP is a ‘samaj virodhi’ (anti-social) party. UP has seen 150 riots in the past one year, Gujarat has been at peace for the last 10 years.”
“In Uttar Pradesh, we have had eight rallies, each bigger than the last one … and today in Lucknow, I see a ‘sea of saffron’ BJP wave will turn into a tsunami by the time of elections,” Modi said.
