Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again hit out at the Congress party for spreading canards on dilution of the SC/ST Act and farmers’ issues for narrow political gains as he inaugurated two highways connecting Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi and its satellite cities.
Speaking at a public rally at Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat after inaugurating the Rs 11,000-crore Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE), he said, “The truth is the Congress and the parties with it block or make fun of any work being done for the poor, Dalits or tribal people.”
“People who are used to worshipping one family cannot worship democracy. After losing elections, they are rattled and in opposing Modi, they have started opposing the nation,” he said.
With an eye on Kairana, the adjoining Lok Sabha constituency where polling for a byelection will be held , the Prime Minister said, “On that side are people for whom their family is the country but for me, the country is my family.”
He started the day by throwing open the first phase of the 14-lane Delhi-Meerut Expressway. Modi also tweeted and thanked the people for coming out braving the hot sun for the event.
Despite the scorching heat, several people came to bless us. Every Indian wants top quality infrastructure and a better quality of life, which were are committed to ensuring. pic.twitter.com/Unrq2ttiYt
