Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday hit slammed the Congress party saying it has ‘already accepted defeat’ in the Haryana assembly elections. Addressing his second rally in the state on Friday, the prime minister referred to a purported video in which three leaders of the grand old party were seen discussing prospects of the party in the polls at the parliament complex.
“Have you seen a video that went viral and in which a Congress leader was looking down upon a leader from Haryana at the parliament complex? I was surprised that the Haryana leader was standing with folded hands. Have you seen the video? Will you accept the insult of Haryana,” PM Modi said.
“It was clear in their talks in the video that they were saying that it would be enough if they win 10-15 seats. These are their words and made just before the elections. Those who have already accepted their defeat and gave up the ground can’t do anything for Haryana,” he added.
PM Modi also attacked the Dushyant Chautala-led Jannayak Janta Party (JJP), stating that people of the state have rejected its politics and strategy.
Lauding the five-year term of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, PM Modi told people that they would have to decide between those who delivered and those who indulged in misdeeds.
"When the BJP government in the state was taking decisive steps for the development of Haryana, what was opposition doing? They couldn't fight with us, so they were busy fighting among themselves. They destabilized their parties for self-interest, can they give stability to Haryana?" the PM said.
