Narendra Modi hits out at 'SABKA' for 'Modi-roko' campaign

Saturday, 10 May 2014 - 8:04pm IST | Place: Deoria

BJP's Narendra Modi today lashed out at Samajwadi Party, BSP and Congress saying that all the three parties were focussing only on stopping him from becoming the prime minister.

Terming them 'SABKA' (for Samajwadi Party, BSP and Congress) in short, Modi, addressing a poll meeting in a agriculture field near Pindara village on Kasya road here, said they were "involved in only one task Modi roko , Modi roko (stop Modi)". Attacking Congress president Sonia Gandhi's 'neech rajniti' barbs, the BJP prime ministerial candidate said SP, BSP and Congress "all three have meals from the same plate in Delhi and madam Sonia serves them food".

He said if talking about removing poverty, proper payment to cane farmers for their produce, construction of toilets for women and concern for power and health issues was "neech rajniti", he was ready to do so and added he did not want to learn anything from "a person born with a golden spoon in his mouth" in an indirect jibe at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi. The BJP leader was also critical of media saying "had I given the statement on low caste, media would have been after me. But since poor have always been targeted with abuses, I am also listening to them as I am poor".

Addressing the local health problem of Japanese encephalitis, Modi said about one lakh children have lost their lives because of the disease but neither the government of "mother-son" (Sonia-Rahul) nor that of "father-son" (Mulayam-Akhilesh in UP) have done anything to check it. The BJP's prime ministerial candidate also recalled an incident of 1975 when party's candidate from here Kalraj Misra had gone to Gujrat in connection with elections there.

"I had served him tea then as Narendra Modi used to sell tea then... But see the power of democracy today we both are walking along neck and neck.. This is the strength of democracy," he said.
