If Congress is original, AAP is its xerox: PM Modi in Punjab

Pathankot (Punjab):

Days ahead of the voting for Assembly election in Punjab, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday targeted the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), stating that the two are playing ‘noora kushti’ (fixed fight) in Punjab and pretending to be against each other.

“If Congress is original, AAP is its xerox…One looted Punjab while the other one is involved in scam after scam in Delhi. Despite being ‘Ek hi thali ke chatte batte’ they (AAP and Congress) are playing ‘noora kushti’ (fixed fight) in Punjab, pretending to be against each other,” Prime Minister Modi said while addressing a rally here, ANI reported.

“‘Punjabiyat’ is of umpteen importance to us, while the Opposition views Punjab from the lens of ‘Siyasat’ (politics)…When Captain Sahab (former Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh) was in Congress, he would stop them from moving in the wrong direction. Now, he is also not there…,” he added.

Further attacking the Congress party, the Prime Minister noted, “Wherever BJP established itself, the remote control family (Congress) from Delhi was wiped out. Wherever there is peace, appeasement has been given a farewell, the same farewell has to be given in Punjab also.”

Prime Minister Modi said that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Central government followed the footsteps of Sant Ravidas and ensured that everyone gets food during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have the same ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ principle. For our government, the betterment of the poor is the most pertinent task. The world has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic but the BJP government followed the footsteps of Sant Ravidas and ensured everyone gets food. Despite the pandemic, India is giving free ration to crores of citizens including the poor of Punjab. We made all the efforts and ensured that no one is left hungry. Even in big countries, people have no food but we have given food to people and ensured that. This is holy service for me. Vaccine has become a boon for the country as we made sure free vaccines for all. The economy has also improved because of the vaccines and our government has prioritised it,” he said.

Assembly elections are slated for February 20 (Sunday) in Punjab, while the counting of votes will take place on March 10.
