Kharge attacks PM Modi for pitching divisive rhetoric 421 times

New Delhi: Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge intensified his criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that Modi spoke about 'mandir-masjid' and other divisive issues 421 times during the election campaign, despite the Election Commission's directive prohibiting appeals for votes based on caste and religion. Kharge made these remarks during a press conference ahead of the final phase of polling.

He also said Modi in his speeches of the last 15 days took the Congress’s name 232 times, his own name 758 times. He didn’t talk about unemployment even once, Kharge said. The INDIA bloc will form government with a clear majority and it will give the country an inclusive, nationalistic government, he said.

“We are confident that people will give a mandate for an alternative government on June 4,” the Congress chief said. People have endorsed “our view that if this government gets another chance, it will be end of democracy”, he said. Kharge also took a swipe at the prime minister over his comments in an interview that global awareness about Mahatma Gandhi came after Richard Attenborough’s film, saying he may not have studied about Gandhi but Mahatma is known the world over.
