Congress disrespected Hindus by saying ‘Hindu terror’, says Modi at poll rally in Maharashtra

People of the community will teach a fitting lesson to Congress, says the Prime Minister at Wardha in Vidarbha

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday slammed the Congress for coining the term, ‘Hindu terror’, and asserted that the community would teach a fitting lesson to that party.

“The Congress has disrespected the community by using the word ‘Hindu terror’. How can a community known for peace, brotherhood and harmony be linked with terrorism? Even the British could not find acts of terror in our 5,000 years of history,” said Mr. Modi in his first election rally at Wardha in Vidarbha.

Mr. Modi said the people of the community have realised the Congress’s efforts and were awake now. “It is evident from the fact that one has to contest from a seat where minority is majority,” he said, without naming Congress president Rahul Gandhi who will contest from Kerala’s Muslims dominated Wayanad as his second constituency.

Dig at Sharad Pawar

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar decided not to contest in the Lok Sabha election as he foresaw his defeat. “His own nephew is trying to take control of the party. The Pawar family, which is involved in a feud right now, cannot win this election,” Mr. Moddi said.

He claimed that Mr. Pawar’s comments labelling him as the ‘chowkidar of toilet’ are in fact proud moments for him. “If I am being named as a chowkidar of toilet that means I am the chowkidar of pride of women who never had access to toilet and had to go for open defecation,” he said.
