PM urged not to forget those who “committed sin”


AICC chief Mallikarjun Kharge previously raised doubts regarding the Prime Minister’s rationale for discussing the abrogation of Article 370 in Rajasthan, questioning the connection between Rajasthan and Jammu and Kashmir.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi intensified his criticism of the Opposition during his second rally in Bihar within 72 hours. Addressing the crowd in Nawada district, he reminded them of the approaching Ram Navami and urged them not to forget those who “committed sin,” alluding to the Opposition’s boycott of the Ram Temple inauguration in Ayodhya.

While refraining from mentioning Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge directly, Modi strongly rebuked him, emphasizing the significance of the Congress president’s position. He questioned Kharge’s remarks made in Rajasthan, asking whether Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and highlighting the sacrifices made by soldiers from Bihar and Rajasthan in the region.

Modi also criticized the Opposition for their absence during the inauguration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, attributing it to their objection to his leadership and their attempt to obstruct the temple’s construction. He asserted that the temple was built with public donations, not government funds, and criticized the Opposition’s stance on Lord Rama and Indian heritage.

In reference to controversial statements made by Karnataka MP D K Suresh, Modi accused the Congress of advocating for the separation of South India and likened their manifesto to the ideology of the Muslim League. He indirectly targeted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his lackluster campaign efforts and reiterated his commitment to serving the people, emphasizing the significance of the upcoming 2024 elections.

Modi highlighted his government’s actions against practices like triple talaq, contrasting them with the Congress and its allies’ alleged denigration of Sanatan Dharma. He praised Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi for steering Bihar away from what he termed as the “jungle raj” era towards development and progress.

Nitish Kumar’s remarks at the rally, particularly his gesture towards Modi and his statement about aiming for over 4,000 Lok Sabha seats for the NDA, garnered attention and criticism from political opponents. Reacting to the incident, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav expressed dismay over Nitish Kumar’s behavior, while Congress representative Rajesh Rathore called for Kumar to stick to prepared scripts to avoid potential embarrassment.

At the rally, Nitish Kumar also underscored the transformation in Bihar under NDA rule since 2005, urging voters, particularly Muslims, to support the NDA, citing a decrease in communal incidents since their governance began.
