|Alliance against people: Modi|
SILVASSA, Jan 19 - On a day when many Opposition parties came together on a common platform in Kolkata, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit out at their proposed ‘mahagathbandhan’ or grand alliance, saying it is a combine of those whom he had prevented from “looting” India and it is not against him but people of the country.
He took a dig at the Opposition rally organised today by the Trinamool Congress (TMC) in Kolkata as well as at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, without taking her name, saying the BJP has only one MLA in the State, “but still they are so afraid of us that they are saying ‘bachao’ (save us)”.
“The mahagathbandhan or grand alliance is not against Narendra Modi but people of India,” Modi said while addressing a public function at Silvassa, the capital of the Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, after laying a foundation stone for a medical college.
“My actions against corruption made some people angry as I prevented them from looting public money. They have formed the mahagathbandhan,” Modi said, adding that these leaders have come together out of fear. – PTI
