Congress model means casteism, vote bank politics which creates rift: PM



Prime Minister on Wednesday said the “ model” meant casteism, division, and vote bank which has “ruined” Gujarat and the entire country.


Canvassing for BJP candidates at Mehsana in poll-bound Gujarat, Modi said the Bharatiya Janata Party never endorsed the policy of “favouritism and discrimination” which is evident in youths reposing faith in the ruling party.


model means corruption, nepotism, dynastic politics, sectarianism and casteism. They are known for indulging in vote bank and creating rifts between people of different castes or even in different districts to be in power.


“This model has ruined not just Gujarat but also India. This is the reason why we have to try hard today to take the country ahead. We (BJP) have never endorsed such a policy of favouritism and discrimination. That is the reason youths are reposing their trust in us,” the prime minister said.


Earlier in the day, leader Rahul Gandhi targeted the ruling party after ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ led by him entered Madhya Pradesh and alleged the BJP “first spreads fear in the minds of youth, farmers, and labourers and when it sets in, they convert it into violence”.


Polling for 182 Assembly seats in Gujarat will be held in two phases on December 1 and 5. The counting of votes will be taken up on December 8. The north Gujarat region will vote during the second phase.


“They (Congress) always wanted to keep people poor so they remain dependent on government,” the prime minister said while addressing a rally in the north Gujarat town.


He said youngsters are confident that BJP’s policies will create more opportunities for them in the future.


The PM said youths in the age group of 20 to 25 years may not even know the kind of hardships faced by the people of Mehsana district in the past including acute shortage of water and electricity.


“Droughts were also common in those days. We (BJP) had put Gujarat on the path of prosperity amid natural calamities and using limited resources. In the past, water and electricity used to be the major issues during polls. Today, the opposition can’t speak on these issues because such issues are resolved by us,” said Modi, who had served as the chief minister of Gujarat before assuming the office of the Prime Minister in 2014.


The PM recalled several farmers including youngsters had been killed in police firing for demanding electricity connections when Congress was in power.


“People have to pay bribes to get electricity connection in the Congress rule. To change the situation, we started reforms in the power sector by laying new transmission lines and setting up transformers. From just 5 lakh agricultural connections two decades back, Gujarat now has 20 lakh such electricity connections,” he added.


The prime minister also said the solar power generation in Gujarat has gone up to 8,000 MW while the wind-based power generation has touched the 10,000-megawatt mark.


The prime minister is also scheduled to address poll rallies at Dahod, Vadodara, and Bhavnagar during the day.
