RAJASTHAN: Winding up his election campaign in Rajasthan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said that voters in the state cannot trust the Congress which is a “confused” party that neither has any “strong leadership nor any policy”.
Addressing a public meeting here just before the scheduled close of campaigning, he said the Congress did not think of adivasis (tribals) during its four generations of governments as it could see nothing “beyond the first family”.
“A strong leadership is needed for running even a small municipality. The Congress neither has a strong leadership nor any policy nor niyat (intentions). Can we hand over our Rajasthan’s government to such a confused party?” Modi said.
He said that a strong leadership meant one “who has experience, whose thinking is clear, who is sensitive and can take tough decisions in public interest”.
Modi pointed out that a separate ministry for tribal affairs was formed only during the Atal Behari Vajpayee government.
“Congress me parivaar ke bahar kuch hai kya (Is there anything outside the (Nehru-Gandhi) family in Congress? For them their family is everything, for me 125 crore Indians are my family,” he said.
