New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while thanking the President’s budget address on 7 February 2018, thanked the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, saying that Congress-free India was Gandhi’s idea and not Modi’s because Mahatma Gandhi wanted Congress to be dissolved after independence. We are trying to follow his footsteps.
But now the same bet of Modi seems to be falling on him. In response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP’s campaign for ‘Congress Mukt Bharat’, the Congress will now run ‘BJP Mukt Bharat’ campaign across the country. Like Maharashtra, the Congress is trying to fit such an equation in other states too. A day ago, Congress spokesperson Rajiv Gowda said, for the last few times, BJP has targeted other political parties including even its own allies. With this, new alliances are being formed in the country in a practical way. He also said, you will see a practical alliance even further.
Rajiv Gowda said, BJP government is not beneficial for the development and future of the country and it is the need of the hour that all parties come together to stop the Modi government. He said, the country’s political picture is changing. Now once again you can travel from Kashmir to Kanyakumari without going through any BJP ruled state.
Since the formation of the Modi government in 2014, BJP and PM Narendra Modi have been continuously campaigning for “Congress-Mukt Bharat”. The BJP removed the Congress and other parties from power in many states. In the northeast, where the BJP could never think of winning even a single seat, now has its own government in these states. However, the BJP’s campaign had suffered a major blow due to the defeat in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh last year. Now, a big state like Maharashtra has also slipped from the hands of BJP, and therefore the Congress is confident of BJP’s downfall.
