Modi attacks Rahul Gandhi, says his ‘entire family has never been able to fight BJP ideology’
Narendra Modi on Saturday hit back at Rahul Gandhi for attacking him on his links with RSS, saying he was “proud” of the ideology and the principles based on the “altar of sacrifice and service”.
“I am proud of the fact that I was born from an ideology. Yes, we have an ideology…Our ideology is society is above family…Mother India is everything for us. Our ideology is that we will live and die for the country,” he said addressing a public meeting here.
“And that is why, you (Congress) cannot fight this ideology. Your entire family has never been able to fight with this ideology. This ideology is based on the altar of sacrifice and service,” he said.
At the Congress manifesto release on Wednesday, Rahul had attacked Modi saying, “It is not about an individual, but he (Modi) represents a ideology and that ideology is exclusionary ideology.”
The Congress Vice President had also said that it is the ideology that makes people fight with each other and and it will bring harm to the country and every Congressman will fight to defeat that ideology.

“Sabka chutti…Sa mane Sapa (SP), Ba mane Baspa (BSP) and Ka mane Kangress (Congress)” Modi said.
Attacking the Centre, Modi said the jawans who have sacrificed their lives for the country are not getting the respect they deserved.
Talking about ‘One rank one pension’, he said Congress comes out with promises before every elections but never implements them. He said the scheme would have been implemented if A B Vajpayee’s government had come to power in 2004.
He also said that the government had “little respect” for farmers and pointed out that more farmers have committed suicide than people who have died in terrorist attacks.
