Seek votes on performance of govt instead of indulging in ‘hate speeches’: Kharge

The Congress president made the remarks in a letter to Prime Minister Modi in which he rebutted the attack and charges levelled against his party in the PM’s letter to NDA candidates after the second phase of the Lok Sabha polls.

KhargeNEW DELHI: In a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Thursday said when the elections are over, people will only remember him as the PM who indulged in “divisive and communal speeches filled with lies” to avoid an inevitable defeat.

Kharge urged the prime minister to seek votes on the performance of his government over the last ten years instead of indulging in “hate speeches”.

The Congress president made the remarks in a letter to Prime Minister Modi in which he rebutted the attack and charges levelled against his party in the PM’s letter to NDA candidates after the second phase of the Lok Sabha polls.

Prime Minister Modi has asked the BJP-led NDA candidates in the Lok Sabha polls to spread awareness among voters about the Congress’s intention to snatch “reservation from SC, ST and OBC communities and give it away to their vote bank”.

In a personal letter written to them, Modi also accused the Congress and its allies of having divisive and discriminatory motives, even though reservation on the basis of religion is unconstitutional.

Writing to Modi, Kharge said, “I saw the letter written by you to all the NDA candidates about what they need to communicate to the voters. From the tone and content of the letter it seems that there is a lot of desperation and worry in you which is leading you to use language that does not suit the office of the Prime Minister.”

“The letter makes it look like the lies in your speeches are not having the effect you intended and now you want your candidates to amplify your lies. Repeating a lie a thousand times will not make it the truth,” he said.

The Congress chief said the voters are intelligent enough to read and understand by themselves what the Congress has written in its manifesto and what guarantees it has promised.

“Our guarantees are so simple and clear, that we don’t have to explain it to them. For your benefit, I will reiterate them here,” Kharge said in his letter and elaborated on the party’s Yuva Nyay, Nari Nyay, Kisan Nyay, Shramik Nyay and Hissedari Nyay.
