Congress will give your wealth to ‘infiltrators’, those who have more children: Modi in Rajasthan

Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on Sunday suggested that if the Congress comes to power, it would redistribute wealth of people to Muslims.

He referenced former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s statement from 2006 about the minority community’s access to national resources, suggesting that the Congress might prioritise Muslims for wealth distribution.

Modi cautioned against what he termed an “urban-naxal mindset,” warning that personal belongings like women’s ‘Mangalsutra’ could be targeted for redistribution.

He alleged that the Congress manifesto includes plans to assess and distribute gold owned by women, implying that such wealth would be given to those with larger families and immigrants.

He further stated that during the Congress government’s tenure, it was suggested that Muslims should have the first claim on the country’s assets.

Modi raised concerns that under a Congress-led regime, resources might be distributed to those with more children or to immigrants, which he referred to as “infiltrators.”

Modi’s remarks stem from a controversial statement made by Manmohan Singh in 2006 about the minority community’s rights to resources.

The Congress party clarified that its manifesto addresses economic inequalities but does not advocate wealth redistribution. They emphasized support for a comprehensive socio-economic caste census.

The Congress also rebutted claims that Rahul Gandhi promised wealth redistribution during a speech in Hyderabad on April 7th, clarifying that his words were misrepresented.

They attributed the misunderstanding to misinterpretation of Gandhi’s call for a survey to address economic disparities and ensure fair wealth distribution.
