NEW DELHI , December 22 (JKNT) Prime Minister Narendra Modi today equated the opposition parties opposing note ban to “ Pakistani army providing cover fore to militants to facilitate them to intrude.”
In one of the most scathing attacks on the Opposition , a day after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi charged Prime Minister with having received bribes during his tenure as Gujarat Chief Minister before becoming Prime Minister , Modi blazed all guns towards opposition.
“ Their stalling of the parliament on note ban was like Pakistani army providing cover fire to the militants to intrude into India, “ Modi said at a function in his parliamentary constituency Varanasi on Thursday .
By calling opposition as “ Pakistani army” engaged in “providing cover fire” to the terrorists , he placed him self and his government as forces fighting against the terrorism and nation’s enemy, while labeling opposition as an accomplice of the enemies of the nation . He had stated on November 8 that his demonetization plan was aimed among other things to root out terrorism surviving on the high value notes and counterfeit currency .
“The commotion created in Parliament is like the ‘cover fire’ that Pakistan uses to ensure terrorists infiltrate into India. Similarly, the ruckus in Parliament lets cheats get away,” he said . He added that he never imagined politicians would “stand with the corrupt”.
Prime Minister also took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi , saying that “ now since he has spoken , there is no fear of any earthquake”. Rahul had stated that he had details of “ personal corruption” of Prime Minister and the day he would speak , tremors would rock the country’s political circles.
Modi in a sarcastic tone said that he is happy that Rahul has leant the art of public speaking.
