Nandurbar (Maha): Narendra Modi today accused the Congress of spreading “canards” that the BJP would impose the Uniform Civil Code and take away the rights of the adivasis, if it is voted to power.
“Congress says if BJP comes to power, they will bring out the Uniform Civil code and take away the rights of the adivasis (tribals).
I want to ask them to stop spreading lies. These rights were given to them not by the Congress or BJP but by Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar,” Modi said, addressing a poll rally here.
Today is the last day of the campaign for the third and last phase of the elections in Maharashtra.
In a veiled attack on sitting Congress MP Manikrao Gavit, Modi said he did nothing for his constituency and that the neighbouring Gujarat villages have much better facilities than Nandurbar.
