New Delhi:

Launching a blistering attack against the opposition parties who today came on one stage in Kolkata with an aim to oust BJP from power in 2019 Lok Sabha poll, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that those who got together had no agenda but to stop the BJP. He further said that 130 crore Indians are watching their games with amusement and will give them a befitting reply in the upcoming poll.

Taking a dig at Mamata Banerjee, PM Modi said “They talk of democracy in a state where the ruling party does not even allow local elections democratically.”

Earlier, on Saturday, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee called for collective leadership, raising a slogan for a change at the Centre. 'Delhi mein sarkar badal do', she chanted. "This mega rally is the beginning of the end of the BJP and after that, there would be a change in the country, we will hold a victory rally at the Brigade Parade Grounds, the West Bengal chief minister said.

Leaders from 22 opposition parties today came together at a mega rally and declared they will fight unitedly to oust the Narendra Modi government. On this congregation of political parties, PM Modi said, “Their day begins with Modi, ends with Modi. All they want to do is further their own dynasties. They have zero vision for India.”

Listing the reasons why the opposition parties hate him, PM Modi said, “Entire Opposition hates me because my ‘crimes’ are: Waging the toughest war against corruption, stopping the reign of middlemen from the corridors of power, giving the poor what belongs to them in the first place but was denied for years.”
