Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge told Narendra Modi that a “heavy influence” of the RSS was on him and why thi isn’t good for a prime minister.
“There is a heavy influence of RSS on you,” Kharge said in the House, when Modi was present. “This is fine for BJP and pracharaks, but not good for the Prime Minister. There are different medicines for different diseases. The RSS has never thought about the poor,” Kharge said while speaking on the motion of thanks to the President for his address.
“Aapke aaju-baaju me aise log rehenge to apke projects, apki gari kitni door tak chalegi (If such people are around you, then how will you be able to take your projects forward),” he said.
He accused the government of repackaging most schemes of the UPA government and cutting down benefits to farmers and said there was a huge difference between the “policies and intentions” of the NDA government. Maintaining that Modi had once criticised the national rural employment scheme, Kharge said the entire world had appreciated UPA’s flagship schemes.
“Aap duniya ko gumrah karte rahen, ye zyada din chalne wala nahi hai… Sarkar ke upar se janta ka bharosa uth jata hai (You cannot mislead the world for too long … the people’s faith in your government will go),” Kharge said.
