PM Modi Attacks Sonia Gandhi Over 'Beta Saunp Rahi Hoon' Appeal To People

PM Modi while addressing the public of Jharkhand’s Jamshedpur attacked Sonia Gandhi’s appeal to the public ‘Main Apna Beta Aapko Saunp Rahi Hun’, and said that they consider Lok Sabha Seat their family property. PM Modi said, “You would have seen it in the news. Congress’ prince fled from Wayanad and went to Raebareli, and he told everyone ‘Ye Meri Mummy Ki Seat Hai’. When a child goes to school, even he doesn’t say that it is my father’s school, even if his father had studied there. His mother went to Raebareli for the campaign and said ‘Main Apna Beta Aapko Saunp Rahi Hun’. But the public of Raebareli asked where were you when we were suffering from COVID, couldn’t you come to Raebareli back then? Now you are asking to give Raebareli to your son? These family-driven people are writing the ‘Vasiyatnama’ of Lok Sabha seats. These are the same people who talk about inheritance tax. You will earn, Congress will take it away. They consider Lok Sabha seat their family property, no party worker will get a chance, it will pass on family line only.”... [Read More]
