Wardha (Maharasthra), Apr 1: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said he was proud to be a chowkidar of toilets.
He was here to address a public rally to campaign for BJP-Shiv Sena candidates in the Vidarbha regions. Reacting to a Congress leader's comments a couple of days ago , comparing him with a "Chowkidar of toilets", Modi said, 'I have been a chowkidar of toilets, but I would take it as a compliment since it also means that I am guarding so many women and girls of the country."
The Prime Minister started his speech by congratulating the country’s space scientists for another achievement that ISRO achieved a while ago. "I want to tell Congress you may try to demean me by saying that I have been a chowkidar of toilets, but I would take it as a compliment since it also means that I am guarding so many women and girls of the country."
The prime minister also took on NCP Supremo Sharad Pawar by saying that that there was a time when he used to think that he could become the Prime Minister. But then one fine day, he decided that he was happy to be here in the Rajya Sabha and not contest elections. He also knows which direction the wind is blowing.
"The Nationalist Congress Party is facing a tough time, even in terms of ticket distribution. They don’t know where to contest from ", he said.
Modi further said, " the NCP-Congress alliance in Maharashtra is like Kumbhkaran. When they are in power, they take turns to sleep for six months."
He urged the farmers not to forget the incident when a farmer from Maharashtra went to Ajit Pawar to redress his grievances, he was humiliated. "The Congress-NCP alliance looted farmers in the state. They were also involved in an irrigation scam. The drought in Vidarbha is because of Congress-NCP negligence , " Modi alleged.
Not just this, Modi charged the duo of insulting the armed forces as well. "They have been insulting our brave soldiers and their sacrifices.When our brave soldiers crossed the borders and killed terrorists in their own den, they wanted evidence of Balakot airstrikes."
Prime minister asked, " Do you want the heroes of India or the people who want to be heroes in Pakistan? Do you want proof, or do you want to take pride that your soldiers are so brave?
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Ramdas Athawale and BJP-RSS Lok Sabha candidates from all ten seats in Vidarbha region were present on the occasion. (UNI)
