New Delhi:2/2:(odiannews):Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a fresh attack on the opposition parties over their attempt to present a united front against the BJP-led NDA government in the upcoming Lok Sabha election saying “they are scared” because “I am fighting corruption”.
Referring to the raly of opposition parties in Kolkata last month, PM Modi said, “This chaiwala has stopped the illegal income of the high and mighty…This is why all kinds of people were taking vows in Kolkata to remove this chowkidar.”
“Look at their photographs…They look so scared,” PM Modi said taking a dig at the opposition leaders, who had attended the United India rally organised by Trinamool Congress president and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in January.
He said, “Those who did not even see each other four years ago assembled in Kolkata… They are abusing me because I am working against corruption.” On January 19, the TMC had organised a rally in Kolkata where leaders of 24 parties including the Congress shared the stage with Banerjee.
In a severe attack PM Modi said “Didi, if you have not done anything wrong, why are you scared. What is that you are afraid of,” adding with he said that he was made to “sit for nine hours in Delhi” during the UPA rule when the CBI probe cases against him when he was the chief minister of Gujarat.
