AHMEDABAD: Ahead of the second phase of polling in Gujarat on December 5, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a public meeting in Kalol. Yes, and in the meantime, he fiercely attacked Congress. In fact, the PM here first hit back at Congress National President Mallikarjun Kharge's 'Ravana' statement and said, 'There is a competition in the Congress as to who can abuse me how much. I respect Kharge Ji. He will say only what he is asked to say. The Congress party does not know that this is the Gujarat of Ram devotees. In this land of Ram devotees, Kharge Ji was asked to call me Ravana with 100 heads and he did so.'
Further, he said- 'Those who never believed in the existence of Lord Ram, have now brought 'Ravana' from Ramayana and, I am surprised they never repented, after using such abusive words for me. Forget about apologizing.' Let us tell you that while addressing a rally in the Behrampura area of Ahmedabad city last Monday night, Kharge had said, 'The Prime Minister asks people to vote by looking at his face in all elections.' With this, he had said, 'Are you 100-faced like Ravana?'
Now in his address today, PM Modi said, 'When you sent me to Delhi in 2014, there were two factories for making mobile phones in the country, today there are more than 200. If your five fingers are in ghee, should one finger press the lotus button or not? I am the son of Gujarat, the qualities you have given me, the strength Gujarat has given me is troubling these Congressmen.' With this, PM Modi said, 'Friends of Congress, listen with open ears, faith and disbelief in your democracy is your subject, it is your choice to live for the family, but note one thing, the more mud you throw, the more Lotus will bloom.'
