BJP’s PM nominee Narendra Modi Sunday took a jibe at the Congress, SP and BSP, saying the three parties are indulging in “stage-managed” WWF (World Wrestling Federation) like fights in UP but come together to grab power in Delhi.
Modi targeted Congress president Sonia Gandhi and SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, accusing them of indulging in votebank politics and “misleading” Muslims in the name of secularism.
“These people from Congress, SP and BSP are indulging in WWF (World Wrestling Federation) fights that you see on TV. These people indulge in stage-managed fights in Lucknow but they come together to grab power in Delhi,” he said in Bijnore.
“These three parties are misleading the country and state, and it’s time to bring in a change in this country. You have already suffered but the time is to make sure that your children don’t suffer,” he said.
The BJP leader said the people have voiced the need for change even before elections and this time, “even the CBI cannot save the UPA government.”
At a rally in Aligarh, Modi sought to blame Sonia and Mulayam for the communal clashes, saying “700 riots took place right under the nose of Madam Soniaji in the last one year and 250 of them took place right here under Netaji (Yadav) in UP.” He criticised the UPA’s 15-point programme for 90 Muslim-dominated districts.
