"Congress incapable of contesting on 300 seats in Lok Sabha polls": PM Modi in Jalore

Jalore (Rajasthan): Taking a jibe at the deteriorating condition of the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that the Congress which had once won 400 seats is now incapable of contesting on 300 seats in this Lok Sabha election adding that the party is the "symbol of instability."

Addressing a public rally in Rajasthan's Jalore, PM Modi said that the people of the country is punishing the Congress for its "sins".

"You have given your blessings to BJP every time, this time too, the people of Jalore-Sirohi are saying 'Phir ek baar Modi sarkar'. In the first phase of polling for the Lok Sabha elections, half of Rajasthan has taught a good lesson to the Congress party. The patriotic people of Rajasthan know that Congress couldn't provide a strong government in the Centre. Their government used to run on remote control. The country does not want the conditions that existed before 2014 to return again," PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister further without naming Sonia Gandhi, slammed the former Congress president for choosing the Rajya Sabha route to reach Parliament.

"The Congress party itself is responsible for the condition it has reached today. Earlier, Rajasthan sent former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Rajya Sabha, and now you have another leader of Congress in Rajya Sabha (Sonia Gandhi). People who knew that they could not win, ran away from the race and reached Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan. Congress hollowed the country by spreading the termites of 'parivaarwad' and corruption. The youth of the country is so angry with Congress that it doesn't want to see their face again," the PM said.

He further said that the Congress party, which is a symbol of instability, and its alliance can never run the country properly.

"Congress was in power for 60 years; once they used to win 400 seats, but today they can't even find candidates for 300 seats. They are paying the price of their wrongdoing. Now they have made an opportunistic alliance in the name of the INDIA bloc which got its wings clipped before it could take flight. The so-called allies are contesting against each other in the States and at least in 25 per cent of seats," PM Modi said.

PM Modi further said that it is his government mission to make sure that water reaches every house and farmer in the country.

"It is my mission to make sure water reaches every house and farmer in the country. In the last 5 years, Over 11 crore families have benefitted under the Jal Jeevan mission. Unfortunately, the Congress government in Rajasthan did corruption in this also. Bhajanlal govt is conducting a probe into this. If there was no Congress government in Rajasthan, then we could have reached our targets under the ' Har Ghar Jal' scheme," he said

There are 25 Lok Sabha seats in Rajasthan. Voting for the 12 Lok Sabha seats in Rajasthan was held in the first phase on Friday. The remaining 13 seats in Rajasthan will be contested in the second phase on April 26.
