Pakistan wants to makes Rahul Gandhi as PM: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday referred to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and said Pakistan was desperate to make ‘Shehzada’ the prime minister. He also said the Congress party was a ‘mureed’ (follower) of Pakistan.

“The Congress is dying here and Pakistanis are crying,” the Prime Minister said, addressing an election rally in Gujarat’s Anand, adding, “Pakistan leaders want to make ‘Shehzada’ of Congress India’s prime minister.”

The Prime Minister’s remarks came as Chaudhry Fawad Hussain, a former minister in Imran Khan’s cabinet in Pakistan, praised Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday.

The former Pakistan minister shared a video on X, featuring Rahul Gandhi targetting the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Chaudhry Fawad captioned the video “Rahul on fire…”

Slamming the Congress party further, PM Modi, during the rally, said, “The country has seen Congress’s rule for 60 years, and BJP’s ‘seva-kaal’ for 10 years. In Congress’s 60 years of rule, around 60 per cent of the rural population did not have the facility of toilets. BJP accomplished this in just 10 years.”

Prime Minister Modi also alleged the Congress wants to change India’s Constitution to give reservations of the Scheduled Casts (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST) and Other Backward Classes (OBC) to Muslims.

“I challenge Congress to give in writing that they will not change the Constitution to give reservations on a religious basis,” he said.

Listing out the BJP’s achievements, PM Modi said, “In the past 10 years, we gave tap water connections to 14 crore houses, while the Congress gave it to just 3 crore houses in 60 years.”
