Haveri (Karnataka), Apr.13: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Sunday attacked the Congress-led UPA Government over the controversy surrounding the memoir released by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s former Media Advisor Sanjay Baru, saying that the more people die due to an accidental PM than because of any accident in the country.
Modi took on Congress President Sonia Gandhi on the controversy relating to Baru’s book, saying “Two days ago a book has come out. An official, who used to work in the Manmohan Singh government, has written this book. He has said in this book that the Central government is not being run by Manmohan Singh. All the files are being checked by Sonia Gandhi.”
“If there is any acciedent in the country, then a few people will die, but due to an accidental Prime Minister 1.25 hundred crore people will die. The future of youth gets immersed into darkness.
Apparently referring to Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, Modi said, “One Congress Chief Minister has claimed that Manmohan Singh was not ready to become the Prime Minister for the second term but Sonia Gandhi forced him.”
He said that this happened because the Sonia wanted her son Rahul Gandhi to be groomed and therefore let the country suffer till he gets ready.
“A mother’s blind love towards her son has left the country in ruins. To a son for whom all this has been done, will anything ever come out of him? Is there anything? Will anything happen? Will you be able to believe him? Can the country live believing him?”
He said the people should not allow the country to be divided and get destroyed.
“Today, the country needs a strong and stable government. If there won’t be a strong government in the centre, then the whole country can get destroyed,” he said.
He also alleged that these days the Congress party, instead of searching for solutions to the problems of the country, is busy finding a solution to Modi. (ANI)
