Ruing over the condition of farmers and soldiers in the country, Narendra Modi hit out at the Congress for ignoring their plight and said if elected, he would revive the spirit of ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan’ slogan given by former prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.
“What is the condition of kisans (farmers) and jawans (soldiers) today?” the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate asked at an election rally here.
“The number of farmers committing suicide because of the faulty agriculture policy of the UPA is far more than soldiers killed in war and likewise number of jawans killed by terrorists are more than those dying in the battle ground,” Modi claimed.
“While the widow of a beheaded soldier is sitting on dharna, the powers that be in Delhi are busy feeding biryani to the Pakistan President,” he alleged.
Stating that farmers were suffering both during good as well as bad harvests, Modi slammed the Centre for allegedly selling surplus foodgrains to liquor manufacturers instead of giving it to the poor as advised by the Supreme Court.
