Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing a poll rally in Jhargram, West Bengal on Monday, attacked Congress, saying the grand old party will snatch people's property and hand it over to those involved in 'Vote Jihad'.

"These people (TMC) are calling infiltrators and settling them. The population of people from Bengal is decreasing in the border areas. Infiltrators come here and occupy the land of our Dalits, backward and tribal people. TMC-Congress together want to make the occupation of infiltrators legal," he added.

Earlier, PM Modi on Friday (May 17) raked up the same issue at the Hamirpur rally in Uttar Pradesh, alleging that the SP and the Congress will use people's votes to come to power and then gift a part of their property to those who carry out "Vote Jihad" for them.
 
Addressing a BJP rally, PM Modi cautioned people against the "intentions" of the two opposition allies in Uttar Pradesh.
 
"Today I have come to caution you against the SP and the Congress. They will take your vote but after coming to power, they will distribute these gifts to those who do vote jihad for them," he said.
 
"This time, the SP and the Congress have made their intentions clear even before the elections. The Congress is saying that it will investigate everyone's property. Then they will give a part of your property to the vote bank that does vote jihad for them," he said.
 
Samajwadi Party (SP) functionary and Congress leader Salman Khurshid's niece, Maria Alam, used the term "vote jihad" in favour of the I.N.D.I.A bloc candidate from the Farrukhabad Lok Sabha seat, Naval Kishore Shakya at  a rally on April 29. Since then PM Modi has been attacking the Opposition over 'Vote Jihad'.
