Congress destroyed federal system, says Modi

At the beginning of his speech on the last day of the BJP’s national council meeting held at the historic Ramlila Maidan, Modi took on the Congress for having an undemocratic family-first culture, which, he claims, destroyed the federal system of Parliamentary rule, and is to be blamed for bad governance and corruption. 

The Hindutva poster boy, who also believes in development politics, taunted Rahul, too, for shying away from contesting polls against a tea vendor who also belongs to backward caste.

“The Congress first family is feeling ashamed to contest against a tea vendor. They have a family name, I am known by my work. They were brought up in high class, so they cannot contest against someone from a backward caste whose mother used to fill water and clean utensils and he used to sell tea in trains,” said Modi.

He was of the view that the 2014 election is not just for change of government but “about hopes and aspirations” of the people.

Attempting to answer critics who had accused him of only attacking the Congress and the United Progressive Alliance government and not offering solutions to problems, Modi virtually gave a peek into what could be the BJP’s manifesto.
