PM Modi attacks Congress over 1984 riots, Karzamaafi



PRIME MINISTER Narendra Modi on Thursday attacked the Congress over the party's involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and took a jibe at Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath while speaking at a rally in Punjab's Gurdaspur.
 
Modi said, "Jinka itihaas hazaron Sikh bhai behno ko berahmi se hatya ka ho aur jo aaj bhi dango ke aaropiyon ko mukhyamantri pad ka puruskar de rahe hain, un logon se Punjab samet desh vasiyon ko satark rehne ki zarurat hai. (Those whose history involves the killings of thousands of Sikhs and those who continue to appoint riot-accused persons as chief ministers of states, Punjab and the entire nation should beware of such people)."
 
Modi addressed the rally in Gurdaspur after inaugurating the 106th edition of the Indian Science Congress at Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar. His address was part of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s grand plan to conduct 100 rallies across the country before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
 
Modi alleged that the Congress was rewarding those who were accused in the anti-Sikh violence. "On one family’s direction, the files of those involved in the riots were put under wraps, but the National Democratic Alliance dug out these and set up a special investigation team,” he added.

Hitting out at the Congress over its loan waiver schemes in various states, Modi said after the slogan of ‘gareebi hatao‘, the party was trying to fool the nation with such policies. The latest jibe comes a week after Modi said Congress governments in some states had promised loan waivers but handed out lollipops to them.
------
"Congress ne desh ko ‘gharibi hatao’ ke naare ke saath thaga, vo ab desh ko karzmaafi ke naam par thag rahi hai (After the slogan of remove poverty, Congress is trying to fool the nation with loan waivers),” Modi said.

Lashing out at the Amarinder Singh-led government in Punjab over their plight of farmers, the PM said, "In Punjab too, Congress fooled farmers on loan waivers and came to power. But now the truth is out after a year and a half. Congress has been waiving loans in past of people who did not even have farms.”

"Loans worth only Rs 3,400 crore have been waived as claimed by Congress till now in Punjab. Will they give help after the death of a farmer? Farmers having small holdings do not even get loans from banks and they have to get them from other means. If their loan is not waived then why is the Congress lying,” the PM said further.

He also hit out at the Congress party over the Kartarpur Corridor, accusing the party of warming up to Pakistan for their political motives.

Modi said in reference to Punjab Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu's Pakistan visit for the Kartarpur Corridor ceremony, Modi said, "Just for their politics, Congress leaders gave a chance to Pakistan. It is surprising that these Congress leaders did not even pay heed to their own Punjab CM."
 
Modi praised his administration for its "historic decision” to build the Kartarpur Corridor. He also paid his tribute to late Bollywood actor and former member of Parliament from Gurdaspur Vinod Khanna. "He wanted to see an advanced and prosperous Gurdaspur. We have to fulfil his dream together,” he said.
