PM attacks opposition with ‘mujra’ dig, Congress calls for ‘decorum’ | India News

PATNA: Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked Congress and RJD on Saturday over corruption and a “Muslim appeasement policy“, saying, “If INDI Alliance wants to perform mujra for vote bank, it hardly bothers me (sic). I will continue fighting for the quota of OBCs, SCs and STs.”
Modi also said the countdown had begun for RJD chief Lalu Prasad and his son, Tejashwi Prasad Yadav, to go to jail after Lok Sabha elections.
The PM mentioned the Calcutta HC order to cancel all OBC certificates issued by the West Bengal govt since 2010 by which 75 Muslim communities were given reservation under OBC category.
Addressing three back-to-back rallies in Patliputra, Karakat and Buxar Lok Sabha constituencies, which go to polls on June 1, the PM accused INDI alliance of being “communal, casteist and dynastic” and said they could go to any extent to tweak the Constitution and give reservation meant for OBCs/SCs/STs and EBCs to Muslims as part of their appeasement policy.
In an oblique reference to Tejashwi and land-for-jobs scam, Modi said, “Jinhone Bihar mein garibon ko loot kar naukri ke badle jameen likhwayi hai wo kaan khol kar sun lo, unka jail jane ka countdown shuru ho gaya hai. They will not be spared… this is the NDA govt and Modi’s guarantee.”
Without naming Tejashwi, who has attended more than 200 election rallies by helicopter, Modi said, “Jaise hin helicopter mein chakkar lagane ka samay pura hua, jail ka rasta tai ho jayega (As soon as the time for helicopter rides ends, the path to jail will open up).”
He cautioned first-time voters against the return of “jungle raj” to Bihar if they voted for opposition alliance.
