PM Modi takes a jibe at Congress
Taking a jibe at CM Ashok Gehlot, Modi said that some people here call themselves magicians. Now the people of Rajasthan are saying that on 3rd December, Congress will go to Choo Mantar from the state. On the issue of crime against women, Modi attacked UDH Minister Shanti Dhariwal who made the statement that Rajasthan is a men's state, Modi said that the minister who insults women has been rewarded by giving him a ticket.
Modi said 'the Congress high command has also been involved in the sin of insulting women. Perhaps that minister also has some such information or has a red diary that even Delhi is afraid of the minister. Efforts will be made to bring out this secret also in the BJP government.'
Accusing the Congress government of appeasement politics, Modi said that people could not celebrate Holi, Ram Navami, or any other festival peacefully. Riots, stone pelting, curfew, all this continued. 'Wherever Congress comes, terrorists, criminals, and rioters go unchecked. Appeasement is everything for Congress,' said Modi who alleged that Congress is anti-Dalit also.
Modi levels corruption allegations against Congress
