Addressing tea garden workers in this poll-bound state of Assam, Modi alleged that ‘one family’ was indulging in ‘negative politics’ as he claimed that there are leaders in opposition parties other than Congress who want Parliament to function even though they oppose him.
“Those who have lost the election (in 2014) and have come down from 400 to 40 have decided not to allow Modi to work. They have decided to create obstacles and difficulties. The conspiracy for the same is going on,” he said.
“They have now decided to take revenge from people, from the poor workers for voting the Congress out of power,” Modi said at the public meeting.
New Delhi: Labelling PM Narendra Modi as anti-poor, anti-farmer, anti-labourer and anti-worker, Congress VP Rahul Gandhi yesterday said he would not allow the BJP to run a government that acts only in the interest of three or four of their crony capitalist friends. “As the opposition, we want to put pressure on the govt so that they pay attention to poor people, to pain of the farmers and labourers. We are not going to let the government run that acts only in the interest of three or four of their crony capitalist friends,” he said.
