Baghpat (UP): Addressing a public rally after inaugurating the Eastern Periphery Expressway, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched a scathing attack on Opposition Congress for spreading “lies and rumours” on issues ranging from dilution of anti-Dalit atrocities law to farmer issues.

“People have seen how they are spreading lies over an order of the Supreme Court for their narrow political gains,” Modi said, referring to an order of the apex court on the verdict on SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

The verdict has been seen, by many, as a dilution of the Act and the government made special efforts to counter such a narrative, he said.

The prime minister said the Congress was “openly” spreading lies for its narrow political gains and added that people who are used to worshipping a family have started opposing the country in their zeal to oppose Modi.

 

“People used to worshipping one family cannot worship democracy,” he said. After losing elections, they are rattled. “Modi ke virodh mein desh ka virodh karne lage hai (in opposing Modi, they have started opposing the country),” he said.

At the rally, which came a day before by-elections in neighbouring Kairana Lok Sabha constituency, he asked citizens to see who are the people on either side.

“On that side are the people for whom their family is the country. For me, my country is my family,” he said.

He attacked the Congress for creating a crisis of confidence by pointing fingers at the Supreme Court, raising doubts on Election Commission and EVMs, eyeing with suspicion the Reserve Bank and its policies and questioning every agency that investigates their acts of omissions and commissions.

The government has constituted a commission for sub-categorisation of OBCs and promised to give reservation to most backward classes in educational institutions and government jobs in a time-bound manner, Modi said.
