In a blistering attack on the mega anti-BJP rally held in Kolkata, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that it was ironical that the people who crushed democracy in their own state are now preaching about saving it.
Taking a jibe at the Opposition, PM Modi during his address in Silvassa, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, said that while the Opposition gathering in Kolkata is aimed to save themselves, his government is working for the welfare and betterment of 130 crore Indians.
Lashing out at the recently formed Grand Alliance in Uttar Pradesh, PM Modi said; "My actions against corruption have infuriated some people. It's but natural for them to get angry as I've prevented them from looting public money. Consequently, they have now formed an alliance called Mahagathbandhan".
