Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the “Mahamilavati gang”, referring to the Congress party-led Opposition, was scared that if he returned to power, their corrupt acitivities and dynastic politics would be shut down.
Addressing an election rally in Bihar’s Bhagalpur, PM Modi said the mahamilavati gang was actually afraid of something else though it may have other pretensions while scaremongering.
“When Modi comes back again then their corruption will be completely finished, their dynastic politics will be finished, their loot in name of poor will stop,their politics of case and religion will stop,'tukde tuke gang bhi tukde tukde ho kar bikhar jaeyga,” he said.
The prime minister said the opposition wanted to strip the armed forces of their special powers, while the NDA government strived to give full liberty to jawans to deal with terrorists and Naxals.
He further asserted that his government was making efforts to bolster the quota system introduced by Baba Saheb Ambedkar.
"They are saying that if Modi comes to power again, elections would be done away with. All constitutional bodies will be under threat. And reservations will be done away with….The fact remains, this 'chowkidar' of yours has been making all efforts to strengthen the quota system introduced by Baba Saheb Ambedkar," he added.
An estimated 13.73 per cent voting has been recorded in the first three hours of polling that began amid tight security in four Lok Sabha seats in Bihar in the first leg of the seven-phased election.
The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
