New Delhi: Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, while speaking at the foundation stone laying ceremony for a Rs 49,000 crore petrochemicals complex at Bina refinery in Madhya Pradesh, criticized the opposition INDIA alliance, referring to them as “ghamandia” or arrogant. He accused them of having a hidden agenda to attack and destroy Sanatan Dharma.
Modi’s statement was made in response to a recent meeting of INDIA alliance leaders in Mumbai, where he claimed they lacked policies, issues, and strong leadership. According to him, their real goal was to undermine Sanatan Dharma, which he considered a threat.
This statement by Modi came in light of comments made by DMK leader and Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin, who had criticized Sanatan Dharma, suggesting it was against social justice and should be eliminated. Another DMK leader, A Raja, had also likened Sanatan Dharma to diseases like leprosy.
During his speech, Modi attributed the success of the G-20 summit to the 140 crore people of India, expressing pride in the nation’s achievements.
Modi also targeted the Congress party, alleging that during their rule in Madhya Pradesh, they had primarily engaged in corruption and crime without focusing on development.
Furthermore, he announced the government’s plan to provide 75 lakh new gas connections across the country and highlighted the significance of the Rs 50,000 crore projects being established in Madhya Pradesh, which he believed would contribute to the state’s development.
