Rajasthan Cong govt kind to terrorists and criminals, says PM Modi

Jaipur, Sep 25: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday accused the Congress dispensation in Rajasthan of “being kind to terrorists” and criminals, and said the party deserved zero marks for the kind of government it ran in the state for five years.
Calling upon the people to oust the party from power in the assembly elections due later this year, he also accused the Ashok Gehlot government of wasting five important years of the state’s youth and engaging in corruption and appeasement politics. The prime minister said the Congress never wanted women to get 33 per cent reservation in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies and that it supported the women’s reservation bill in Parliament last week because of pressure from women.
Addressing a public rally near here, Modi also attacked the Congress over the Sanatan Dharma issue. He said the call to finish “Sanatan” was the height of appeasement just for a few votes and the alliance of the opposition parties, which he referred to as “ghamandiya gathbandhan” (arrogant alliance), will have to suffer losses in every coming election.
He said that other states were touching new heights in industrial investments whereas in Rajasthan there was corruption at every step. “It is necessary to set up industries in Rajasthan too, but where there is corruption at every step, where there are black deeds in a ‘lal diary’, where everyone is busy in (getting) cuts and commissions, who would want to invest money?” he said, referring to a red diary which sacked Rajasthan minister Rajendra Gudha claimed had details of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s financial transactions.
“How can investment take place in an environment where incident of cutting someone’s throat happens and the government is helpless? This was not an ordinary crime, it was the result of Congress’ vote-bank appeasement politics,” he said, in an apparent reference to the killing of tailor Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur last year over an alleged insult to Islam.
Modi said how will there be any fear of law when the government is “meherban” (kind) to terrorists and criminals, instead of taking action against them. “The kind of government that Congress has run here for five years (it) deserves to get zero number. The Gehlot government wasted five important years of the youth of Rajasthan. That is why the people of Rajasthan have decided to remove the Gehlot government and bring back the BJP. I can clearly see that there will be change in Rajasthan,” Modi said.
He was addressing the ‘Parivartan Sankalp Maharally’ at Dadiya village on the outskirts of Jaipur.
The rally marked the culmination of four ‘Parivartan Yatras’ that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took out in the poll-bound state. Assembly elections in Rajasthan are due later this year.
Sounding the poll bugle in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan with back-to-back rallies, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday targeted the Congress over the women’s reservation bill, saying the opposition party and its partners in the new “ghamandia” alliance “reluctantly” supported the historic step.
