Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said Opposition leaders have lost their sleep after four phases of polling in the Lok Sabha elections, PTI reported. The prime minister referred to the Opposition as a “mahamilavat [adulterated]” alliance.
Modi claimed the “mahamilavati” parties would not be able to win the leader of Opposition’s post in Parliament. Attacking the alliance of the Samajwadi Party, the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Rashtriya Lok Dal in Uttar Pradesh, Modi said May 23 – the day of election results – will be the Opposition’s “expiry date”.
“In 2014, they did not get it [the post of leader of Opposition] and this time people are so angry that they will not get it again,” he said, addressing a rally at Barabanki Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh. “Those doing ‘mahamilavat’ are having sleepless nights.”
Modi claimed that while the Opposition parties were speculating about their prime ministerial candidate before the polls, they are now trying to hide. He asked people not to believe in rumours spread by the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party.
“They have only one slogan: get rid of Modi,” he added. “What will do for farmers? What will they do for women? What will they do against terrorism? They are silent about all these matters.”
The prime minister listed a number of alleged scams that occurred during the rule of the SP and the BSP. He said these two parties and the Congress are alike in their contributions to nepotism and corruption.
“There is no sector in which the Congress has not indulged in corruption,” Modi alleged. “But I exposed all of them. They want Modi out of power because the National Democratic Alliance government took action against black money and corruption.” The prime minister claimed that he has shut down 3.5 lakh fake companies within five years.
The prime minister also claimed that had Sardar Vallabbhai Patel been the first prime minister of India instead of Jawaharlal Nehru, the farmers of the country would have been in a much better condition today.
Meanwhile, addressing another rally in Bahraich city in Uttar Pradesh, Mod said the Opposition cannot provide a strong government that will transform India into a superpower.
“This election will determine India’s place in the world in the 21st century,” Modi said. “Will you not be happy if India becomes a superpower? The whole country wants that India becomes a superpower, but can this work be done by a weak, loose, helpless coalition government?”
The prime minister asked the audience at the rally if the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party can provide a strong government. “Can the Congress and its ‘mahamilavati’ [adulterated] friends provide such a government?” The prime minister claimed that the Opposition was merely trying to save its seat deposits and not win elections.
Modi asserted that the BJP government has acted for the betterment of all sections of society without discrimination. Houses will be built for all poor citizens by 2022, he added, and claimed that the BJP government has taken banking to the doorstep of the poor. “Did the Samajwadi Party provide electricity where their vote bank did not exist?” he asked. “Did the Bahujan Samaj Party do it? No, but we do it.”
The Lok Sabha elections are being held in seven phases from April 11 to May 19, and the results will be declared on May 23. The Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party are in an alliance, contesting 38 and 37 seats in Uttar Pradesh.
