Big and powerful people in India, abroad have joined hands to oust me from power

Speaking at a poll rally in Karnataka, the prime minister also claimed the first phase of voting for Lok Sabha has gone in favour of the NDA and ‘Viksit Bharat’.

Narendra ModiCHIKKABALLAPURA/BENGALURU: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said big and powerful people in India and abroad have joined hands to remove him from power. Modi also attacked the Congress government in the state.

Citing recent incidents of the bomb blast in Bengaluru and the murder of a girl student in Hubballi in north Karnataka, he urged the people of the state to be alert about Congress, and also accused the party’s government here of being “focused on corruption”.

“Mothers and sisters have come in a large number here.Your struggle and the challenges you face to nurture your family, Modi has seen this in his house. These days big and powerful people in the country and abroad have united to remove Modi,” he said.

“But, because of Nari Shakti and Maatru Shakti’s blessings and Suraksha kavach (safety armour), Modi is able to move on fighting challenges,” he said addressing campaign rallies in Chikkaballapura and here.

“Serving mothers, sisters and daughters and protecting them is Modi’s priority,” the PM said, listing out measures taken by his government for women’s welfare in ten years like supporting their self help groups and creating ‘Lakhpati Didis’.

Modi said the first phase of voting for Lok Sabha on Friday has gone in favour of NDA and ‘Viksit Bharat’.

Targeting the INDIA bloc, he said the opposition alliance doesn’t have a leader at present, and has no vision for future, and “their history was of scams.” Praising JD(S) patriarch and former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda who shared the stage with him, for his energy and commitment at the age of 90, Modi said he too draws inspiration from him.

“His (Gowda) commitment towards Karnataka, the pain in his heart for the plight of Karnataka today and the ‘josh’ in his voice, is the testimony for Karnataka’s bright future,” he said, as he thanked Gowda for his “blessings”.

The JD(S) joined the NDA in September last year.

Earlier, in his speech at Chikkaballapura rally, Gowda hit out at Congress, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar over a sarcasm-laced newspaper advertisement campaign alleging that the Modi government’s gift to Karnataka was empty ‘Chombu’ (a small, round water container).

Pointing at scams like 2G and coal gate during UPA rule under Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi, he said, “After looting the resources of the state and the country during the Congress regime, Modi was given the empty ‘Chombu’, which the prime minister has turned into ‘Akshaya Patre’ in ten years.”
