Congress manifesto completely bears imprint of Muslim League ideology: PM Modi

In a fervent critique of the Congress party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asserted on Saturday that the opposition has lost touch with the current aspirations of India, likening its manifesto to the outdated ideals of the Muslim League during the struggle for independence.

In his initial response to the Congress manifesto unveiled the previous day, PM Modi remarked that it distinctly echoes the sentiments of the Muslim League, with a noticeable leftist influence occupying the remainder.

During an election rally in Saharanpur, PM Modi expressed the sentiment that the Indian populace perceives the Congress, once instrumental in the fight for independence, as an entity disconnected from contemporary India’s needs.

“The unveiling of the Congress manifesto yesterday further underscores the disconnect between today’s India and the Congress. It reflects a mindset reminiscent of the Muslim League during the freedom struggle, with leftist elements dominating the rest. The Congress seems to be overshadowed by this,” PM Modi stated.

He emphasized that such a Congress is incapable of steering India forward in the 21st century.

The Muslim League, led by Mohammed Ali Jinnah, advocated for the partition of British India into separate Hindu and Muslim states, ultimately leading to the formation of Pakistan in 1947. Congress’s manifesto was launched at the party headquarters by leaders Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi, and Rahul Gandhi on Friday.

PM Modi lamented that the Congress, which once fought valiantly for independence alongside luminaries like Mahatma Gandhi, has now dwindled into irrelevance, lacking both policies in the nation’s interest and a vision for the country’s advancement.

The Congress manifesto made a series of pledges, including a legal guarantee for Minimum Support Price (MSP), 50 percent reservation for women in government jobs, repealing the Agnipath scheme, doubling GDP within the next decade, strengthening anti-defection laws, restoring the status quo ante with China, providing mobile phones for students from class IX to XII, and amending the GST regime.

During his address at the Saharanpur rally, PM Modi launched scathing criticisms against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav over their electoral alliance, recalling their unsuccessful partnership in the 2017 assembly polls as a “flop film” scenario.

He also derided the INDIA alliance, contrasting their focus on “commission” with his government’s commitment to a “mission.”

PM Modi further lambasted Congress for struggling to field candidates even in its strongholds, highlighting instances where party nominees failed to appear for nomination filing.

“This is unlike any previous election where the opposition’s aim is not to win, but to limit BJP below 370 seats and NDA below 400. The Samajwadi Party is in disarray, having to replace candidates constantly, and Congress’s situation is even worse. They’re struggling to find candidates even in their strongholds,” he remarked.

PM Modi asserted that the BJP has earned the trust of the people through its diligent work and commitment to national interests.

He also criticized the previous UPA government, recalling a period of despair and crisis, contrasting it with the BJP’s agenda-driven governance.

PM Modi reaffirmed the government’s commitment to inclusive policies and highlighted achievements such as the abrogation of Article 370 and efforts towards development in Jammu and Kashmir.

Referring to opposition allegations regarding the misuse of investigative agencies, PM Modi assured that the fight against corruption will persist.

The Saharanpur constituency, along with seven others in Uttar Pradesh, is scheduled to vote in the first phase of the Lok Sabha polls on April 19.
