The more Congress hates PM, the more people support Modi: BJP chief Nadda



Hitting out at the Congress for its criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief JP Nadda on Monday said the more the opposition party and its leaders “lie” and “hate” Modi, the more people will support him.

In a series of tweets, Nadda lambasted both Congress president Sonia Gandhi and MP Rahul Gandhi for their reproval of the Prime Minister on a range of issues.

Combination of despondency and shamelessness is dangerous. Congress possesses both. Empty rhetoric of decency and democracy by the Mother is complemented by live demonstrations of politics of hate, anger, lies and aggression by the Son. Double standards galore, Nadda said.

The BJP president made these remarks in response to an article written by Sonia Gandhi in an English daily alleging that democracy is being hollowed out in the Modi dispensation.

One dynasty’s deep personal hatred against a person who was born in poverty and became PM is historic. Equally historic is the love people of India have showered upon PM. More Congress’ lies and hate increases, the more people will support PM Modi, Nadda said.

Recalling the emergency, the BJP chief said the Congress can never pontificate on the freedom of speech, claiming that they have had contempt for dissenting voices for decades.
