Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Friday criticised the UPA government’s decision to divide Andhra Pradesh and said that this had set the entire state “on fire”. Modi was commenting on Thursday’s episode where an MP sprayed pepper in Parliament to protest the carving out of Telengana at a gathering in Limbayat area of Surat. “The Congress is nowadays using film dialogues and saying that some people are farming poison. We are those who sell tea and harvest love. We have sold only tea and not the country,” he said.
Modi said, “In Vajpayee’s government, three new states were carved — Chhattisgarh from MP, Jharkhand from Bihar and Uttarakhand from UP. When these states were divided people were happy and this is farming love and not farming poison.” Modi later flagged on the Vikas Jyot yatra led by ex-SP president Ajay Tomar, who has joined the BJP.
