Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday targeted Congress President Rahul Gandhi and said the party was already searching for scapegoats to blame them for the party's eventual Lok Sabha election defeat.
"Two associates of 'naamdar' have taken the front stage. One is his guru (Pitroda) who dismissed the violence against the Sikhs (in 1984) as 'Hua to Hua'.
"All these steps are being taken to save 'naamdar' and his family from election defeat" said Modi.
"The difference between my governance of 55 months and the governance of one family of the Congress for 55 years is clearly visible," Modi said.
"Development is taking place and poverty is declining. There are no corruption charges on my government."
Modi assured the people that their land will not be taken by force. "Till Modi is there, no one will take away the land of the tribals and poor people.
Modi enumerated the work done by his government for the tribals.
Targeting the Congress on terrorism, Modi said: "The Congress has promised to end the sedition law but BJP will not allow it.
"Both the Congress and the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha are with intruders. Each intruder will be identified as they are a threat to national security and national resources."
