Addressing a rally in Meerut, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate on Sunday said that it was ironic for the Congress to say that power was poison, as they stayed in power for the longest time in the country after Independence.
"Sonia Gandhi has accused some people of 'sowing seeds of poison'. She had once told her son Rahul Gandhi that power is poison. Who stayed in power for the longest time after Independence? If power is poison then who has tasted this poison most?" asked Modi.
"Congress is a divisive party. They believe in divide and rule, and they believe in votebank politics. They believe in making communities fight," he said.
"When the other states were bifurcated, people were happy because Vajpayee ji sowed seeds of happiness. But there is fire in Andhra Pradesh because Congress has spread poison," he added.
He further said that the 2014 would decide the future of the country.
"The 2014 elections will decide the future of the country and we should all get together to change the future of the country," he said.
