New Delhi:12/1:(odiannews) Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered the concluding speech at two-day national council meet of Bharatiya Janata Party at Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi. The meet, held in national capital assumes significance in light of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The main agenda of the meet was social justice and farmer outreach. But the meet is largely being seen as the strategic meet of BJP for the general elections.Prime Minister Narendra Modi has lashed out at the opposition for its efforts to cobble up an anti-BJP front ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha election, calling it a ‘failed experiment’.
“These days, a campaign is going on to publicise a failed experiment in the history of Indian politics by the name of mahagathbandhan,” he said on Saturday addressing BJP workers at the national council meet of the party in New Delhi.
He said the opposition was trying to make a "majboor sarkaar"(helpless government) instead of a "majboot sarkar" (strong government) as they wanted to indulge in scams and corruption.
The comments of PM came on a day the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party formed an alliance for the 2019 polls. Both the parties will contest 38 seats each in UttarPradesh, leaving two seats for the Congress and two for other allies.
Modi questioned the viability of opposition alliances and pointed out that that its first outing in Telangana, where the Congress had teamed up with TDP of Chandrababu Naidu , was a disaster as it lost to the TRS. He said in Karnataka, where the Congress is in alliance with the JD-S, the chief minister is on record saying that he is being "treated like a clerk".
“Problems have started even in newly formed governments in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh,” Modi added.
Hitting out at the main opposition Congress, Modi said they are a stumbling block in the development of the country . “They are stalling key bills in Parliament, they do not want the country to progress.”
