Narendra Modi slams Third Front, says only NDA can provide stable governmen
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Monday hit out at the Third Front during the second rally in Bihar’s Purnia after his party announced an alliance with Ram Vilas Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party (LJP).
The Gujarat chief minister was addressing a public meeting at the historic Ranbhoomi Ground which has a capacity to accommodate at least two lakh people.
“Along with the colours of Holi, BJP’s colour is also spreading,” Modi told the gathering.
Modi’s last rally in Bihar was in Muzaffarpur where he shared the dais with Paswan.
Modi reached out to the people of Bihar saying despite the Patna bomb blasts they did not panic.
“I salute the people of Bihar for their bravery and courage during Patna blasts,” he said.
He targetted the Third Front, of which Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar’s party is a part of, all over again saying that all the parties in alliance have had tie-ups with the Congress.
The Gujarat chief minister questioned their absence during the Gujarat earthquake, Assam and Uttar Predesh riots as well as their silence over the beheading of Indian Army soldiers by Pakistan.
“This Third Front has always saved Congress, it either has former PMs or those who want to be PM.”
“The Third Front wakes up during elections and sleeps after that,” he added.
He also hit out at Kumar who had said last week he was as good a prime ministerial candidate being promoted in the country.
“Dreams of prime ministership doesn’t let him sleep. He has such a high opinion of himself that he feels he is more qualified,” Modi said.
“Nitish Kumar broke the alliance with BJP because he had PM dreams.”
Modi also took a jibe at Rashtriya Janata Dal’s Lalu Prasad and said even the cattle are worried about their fodder if Congress and its allies come to power again in Bihar.
He said only the National Democratic Alliance can give India a stable government.
“Indian democracy is all about alliances and BJP has always had successful coalitions,” he said.
“The NDA wants to go to polls not only to form a government, but a stable one.”
