PM Modi dares Congress with this challenge | Read
These people still have not come to terms that I am the #PM, it has been nearly four and a half years. They are still crying, how can a '#Chaiwala' become PM?
New Delhi: Throwing an open challenge to Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the party to make 'outsider' it's party president for five years.
Campaigning in Chhattisgarh ahead of second phase of elections, PM Modi said, "Congress cannot see anyone outside of the Gandhi family in a position of power. "I want to challenge them, let some good leader of Congress but outside of the (Gandhi) family become the party president for five years. Then I will say that Nehru ji really created a truly democratic party."
Lashing out at remarks made previously by Congress leaders against him, PM said, "These people still have not come to terms that I am the PM, it has been nearly four and a half years. They are still crying, how can a 'Chaiwala' become PM?"
What else PM said:
-Despite the fear of violence, people in the first phase came out in big numbers.
-Even in Bastar, locals exercised their democratic right and it is here as well as across Chhattisgarh that the spirit of democracy truly thrives.
- I urge you to continue with the spirit and ensure those who are against development and only play divisive politics are kept at bay.
PM Modi also urged the people at Ambikapur to register even higher voting percentages than Bastar on November 20, when the second phase of the state election takes place.
