ANI  |  Politics 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Congress party uses the same poster for several decades by only changing the photo of their leader printed on it. He was addressing an election rally in Jaipur on Wednesday.

"Once Congress comes up with any poster at the time of elections, it uses it for several decades. About 50-60 years back, the party came up with 'Garibi Hatao' (eradicate poverty) poster and is using it till date. In every election Congress comes up with the same poster by only changing the photo of 'naamdaar' printed on it," said Prime Minister Modi.

He said that only the voice behind the advertisement changes but the slogan remains the same.

"Sometimes the 'garibi hatao' slogan is in a female voice and sometimes it is in a male voice. They only change voice and reiterate 'garibi hatao," said Modi.

"The 'karz mafi' (farm loan waiver) poster used by the Congress is also 10-15 years old. Congress before every election get the same poster stuck in different states. This is what exactly they have done in Rajasthan also," he added.

"The Congress has not only betrayed the farmers of this country but also soldiers. It has compromised the security of the nation for the sake of commission and corruption," he said.

Meanwhile, after United Nations on Wednesday designated Pulwama attack mastermind and Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist, Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked the world community on the behalf of 130 crore Indians.

"In our fight against terrorism, the world community is standing with India. I thank world community on the behalf of 130 crore Indians," said Narendra Modi.
