    For Congress family comes first: PM Modi

    PM Modi, while addressing the Vijay Sankalp Rally in Morena, Madhya Pradesh, attacked Congress saying nothing is greater than the country for the BJP, but for Congress, it is family first.

    Nothing is greater than the country for BJP. But for Congress, it is family first.

Therefore, for so many years, Congress did not allow the demands of army personnel like One Rank-One Pension to be fulfilled. We implemented One Rank-One Pension as soon as the government was formed."
