The 'Shehzada' of Congress says that if their government comes to power, they will investigate who earns how much, who has how many properties...Our mothers and sisters have gold. It is 'stree dhan', it is considered sacred, the law also protects it. Now these people's eyes are on the 'Mangalsutra' of women.”

“Congress considered itself greater than Lord Ram...Appeasement and vote bank politics are in the DNA of Congress,” PM Modi said at a rally in Chhattisgarh’s Janjgir-Champa.

He termed the women power of the country as his “Raksha Kavach” and said that the Opposition cannot succeed in its agenda against him till they are with him.

“Congress people say that they will break Modi's head. As long as the mothers and sisters of my country are with me, no one can do anything to Modi. These mothers and sisters are my 'Raksha Kavach',” he said.

The Prime Minister had earlier accused the Congress of following the communist ideology.

“Their intention is to steal the gold of mothers and sisters... If you have an old ancestor's home in your village and you also purchased a small flat in your city for the future of your children. Then they will take away one of the two…” he said earlier.

“This is Maovadi thinking, this is the thinking of communists. By doing this they have already ruined many countries. Now this same policy the Congress Party and INDI alliance want to implement in India,” he added.
