ANI Photo | “After I said Congress in grip of Urban Naxals, they tried to please America”: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleged that the Congress party made efforts to please America after he said that Urban Naxals have taken control of the grand old party over its supposed poll promise to redistribute wealth possessed by citizens of the country.
Addressing the Vijay Sankalp Shankhnaad Maharally in Surguja, Chhattisgarh, PM Modi said, “There was a storm in their (Congress) party when I said Urban Naxals have taken control over the Congress party. They felt that efforts should be made to make America happy. Modi has made such a big allegation, so they are pretending to turn towards them and doing a drama to create balance. But they want to steal your property.”
The Prime Minister hit out at the remarks made by Congress’ Sam Pitroda advocating an ‘inheritance tax’ like law saying that the Congress does not want the countrymen to pass on their property to their children.
“The royal family’s prince’s advisor has said that more taxes should be imposed on the middle class. Now these people have gone one step further than this, Congress says that it will impose an Inheritance Tax, and it will also impose tax on the inheritance received from parents. The property you have accumulated through your hard work will not be given to your children,” the Prime Minister said.
Prime Minister said that the mantra of the Congress is “Loot zindagi ke sath bhi zindagi ke baad bhi” (Loot, during the lifetime and afterwards).
“The claws of Congress will snatch that too from you. As long as you are alive, Congress will impose higher taxes and when you are no longer alive, it will burden you with Inheritance Tax. Those people who considered the entire Congress party as their ancestral property and handed it over to their children, now do not want Indians to pass on their property to their children,” he said.
Continuing the attack on the Congress manifesto, the Prime Minister said that the opposition party has always planned to implement reservation on the basis of religion.
“When the Congress manifesto came out, I had said on the same day that the Congress manifesto had the stamp of the Muslim League on it. When the Constitution was being made, it was decided under the leadership of Baba Saheb Ambedkar that there would be no reservation on the basis of religion in India. But for the vote bank, Congress did not care about the words of these great men, did not care about the sanctity of the Constitution nor did it care about the words of Baba Saheb Ambedkar,” PM said.
He further said that “misgovernance by the Congress resulted towards the destruction of the country however BJP is taking strict action against terrorism and Naxalism”. He also took a jibe at Congress leader Sonia Gandhi for shedding tears over the images 2008 Batla House encounter as stated by Salman Khurshid.
“Congress is supporting the people who spread violence and call them bravehearts. The biggest leader of this Congress sheds tears when terrorists are killed. Due to such actions, Congress has lost the trust of the country,” he added.
