Shahjahanpur: On Saturday, Prime Minister Modi said the number of opposition parties uniting against him, the more the BJP would bloom. He added that he had to face the no-confidence motion because his “only fault” was of “fighting corruption” and “standing with full force against nepotism.”
A day after the government defeated the no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha, Mr.Modi quoted “dal and dal”(Opposition parties) to the “dal-dal”(marshy area). “Jitna zyada dal-dal hota hai, utna zyada kamal khilta hai.
Yeh unka dal dal ka khel, kamal khilane ke liye naya avsar dene wala hai(More the marshy area, more the lotus will bloom. The game of ‘dal-dal’ will only provide an opportunity for the lotus to bloom). Modi has been addressing rallies in Azamgarh, Sant Kabir Nagar, Varanasi, Mirzapur and Noida over the past three weeks.
“Chalo cycle ho ya hathi, arey kisi ko bhi banalo sathi, swarth ke iss swang ko desh bhali bhanti samajh chuka hai.(Be it the SP or the BSP, you ca take along anybody you like. But the country has clearly understood this pretentious game of selfishness,” said Modi, criticising the Opposition.
About the Opposition’s defeat in the trust vote against his government, Modi said, “They cannot understand the mood of today’s India. They think they can continue to tamper with the system. But time has changed, so has the country and the mentality of the youth. Their formula to threaten democracy won’t work anytime soon.”
In the rally, he listed various programmes taken by his government for the welfare of farmers and the poor, and said the Opposition parties are running around Parliament with a no-confidence motion when the government is busy with electrifying households and providing toilets to women. “Some parties say they have no confidence in Modi, they have no confidence in the government to whom you gave a historic mandate. Yesterday in Parliament, I repeatedly asked them to give the reason for the no-confidence motion. When they could not give a satisfactory reply, gale padh gaye(gave me an unwanted hug),” said Modi.
Prime Minister asked the crowd in the rally, “I have served you for four years, you tell me, have I done any wrong act? Am I on the wrong track? Did I do anything for my own interest? Am I not doing it for the country, for the poor and famers.”
He expressed that his real strength came from the 125 crore citizens of India and “Babasaheb Ambedkar’s constitution.”
The rally which was held in Shahjahanpur was deliberately placed as the district is located at the intersection of the sugarcane and paddy belts and houses one of the largest food grain mandis in the state. The PM announced that his government had increased the minimum sugar mills pay to cane farmers by Rs 20 to Rs 275 per quintal.
