Lashing out at the Congress-CPI(M) alliance in Tripura, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the two parties fight ‘kushti’ (wrestling) in Kerala and have done ‘dosti’ (friendship) in the northeastern state.
Making a veiled reference to Tipra Motha, Modi claimed that some other parties were also helping the opposition alliance from behind but any vote for them will take Tripura several years backward.
“Old players of misgovernance have joined hands for ‘chanda’ (donation). Those fighting ‘kushti’ (wrestling) in Kerala have done ‘dosti’ (friendship) in Tripura,” the PM said at an election rally in Radhakishorepur in Gomati district.
Hitting out at the Left, PM Modi said, 5 years ago, when there was CPI(M) govt here, ‘CPM ki chanda waali company’ used to loot your ration. The poor wanted ration but Leftists used to loot the ration. You ousted them from Tripura and formed a double-engine govt here. People of Tripura can see its results.
PM Modi further stated, “It was difficult for people to get even water and electricity. They did not get even basic facilities. Those who governed Delhi & Tripura earlier, never cared about these facilities. Those who looted Tripura for years and compelled people to live in paucity have now come together”, quoted by ANI.
