BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Wednesday criticised Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, JMM chief Shibu Soren and RJD president Lalu Prasad for practising “dynastic politics” and said it has no place in a democracy.
“The Congress is a party of mother and son, the SP is a father, son and daughter-in-law party, the RJD is a husband and wife party, the JMM is a father and son party,” Modi told an election meeting here in Palamu district.
“Dynastic politics has no importance in a democracy,” he said.
Claiming that farmers in Uttar Pradesh were selling their livestock for money to marry off their daughters, Modi said, “The Centre is in pink revolution, exporting meat on subsidy.
Modi accused regional parties of being “chowkidars of a corrupt government” in New Delhi and said, “The government at the Centre is a liability. Change it.”
Referring to the Palamu, a rain shadow area, he said even Gujarat had scanty rains, “but there is no problem for water.”
BJP has fielded former Jharkhand Police chief V D Ram from the Palamau (SC) constituency.
