Jairam Ramesh Calls Modi ‘Prachar Mantri’

As the Indian National Congress (INC) registered a victory in the Himachal Pradesh Assembly election, veteran leader of the party Jairam Ramesh took a dig at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), saying that the party failed to retain the government in the state despite the PM Narendra Modi’s high voltage campaign.

Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP national President who hails from the hill state, Ramesh said that Congress managed to win the elections even after the PM’s high voltage campaign in the home state of the BJP President JP Nadda.
He also called the PM a “Prachar Mantri”.

“The Himachal Pradesh result is a definite morale booster for the Congress. The PM (Prachar Mantri)’s high voltage campaign in the home state of the BJP President failed significantly. The pledges made to the people of Himachal by the Congress will be fulfilled,” Jairam Ramesh wrote in his tweet on Thursday.

While the BJP bagged 25 seats in Himachal, the Congress party is tipped to win 40 of the 68 Assembly seats, keeping the alternative government tradition.

In Himachal Pradesh, Independent candidates won three seats while the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) failed to open its account in the state. The others in the fray, including Independents, combined to garner a further 10.4 percent vote share in the hill state.

The Congress, which had not projected a chief ministerial candidate for the hill state, has planned to hold a meeting of its victorious MLAs in Chandigarh, amid fears of ‘poaching’ by the BJP.

Jairam Ramesh, while commenting on the result of the Gujarat Assembly election, called it a “disappointing” result and added that only Congress was the “only alternative” in Gujarat.

“The result in Gujarat is disappointing. Congress was up against- a 3 party alliance of BJP, AAP, and MIM -the campaign of provocative polarisation –machinery of state and Centre,” Ramesh said adding that the vote shares for the Congress in Gujarat is for rebuilding and revival for the party.

The BJP today registered a phenomenal victory in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state.

The Congress was seen as putting up a token campaign in Gujarat, where it won 77 seats in 2017.

According to the latest information from the Election Commission, BJP is poised to win 156 seats in the 182-member Gujarat assembly having already won 142 seats and leading on 14 seats. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has made its entry into the state assembly having won five seats. The party has increased its vote percentage to 12.82 percent in an indication of its growing presence in the state. (ANI)

Efforts made by Narendra Modi in solving these basic problems of Gujarat is deeply appreciated by the people of Gujarat,” Shah told ANI

Competition In Cong On Who Says More bad words: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hit back at Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge for calling him “Ravana” and said that there is a competition among Congress leaders as to who will use the most abusive words for him.

The remarks of PM Modi came after Kharge had described PM Modi as Ravana.
While addressing an election rally in Gujarat for the second phase in Kalol town of Panchmahal district in poll-bound Gujarat, the Prime Minister said, “I respect Kharge Ji. He will say what he has been told to say. Congress party doesn’t know that this is the Gujarat of Ram Bhakts In this land of Rambhakts, he was asked to call me a Ravan with 100 heads.”

PM Modi further said that Congress does not accept Lord Ram’s existence but they brought Ravan from Ramayan to abuse him.

“We know that Congress does not accept the existence of Lord Ram, and does not believe in Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir. They have a problem with Ram Setu as well. Now, this Congress party has brought Ravan from Ramayan to speak insults about me,” he said.

The Prime Minister said that he is amazed to see that none of the Congress leaders ever felt remorse or regretted the numerous cases of abuse they heaped on him.

“I am not surprised at Congress saying bad things about me. I am amazed that even after saying so many bad things, neither the Congress party nor its leaders have ever regretted it. They feel it is their right to abuse Modi and the PM of this country,” PM Modi said.

PM Modi said that Congress leaders can do anything to please one family.

“If they believed in democracy, they would have never gone to this level. They believe in one family and not democracy. They can do anything to please that one family and that family is everything to them, not democracy,” said the PM.

“There is a competition in Congress on who says more bad words for Modi…We have to teach them a lesson and the way is to press the button on Lotus on the 5th (second phase of Gujarat elections),” the prime minister said.

“The Congress should note that the more dirt it throws on me, the more the lotus will bloom,” he added.

Notably, during a poll campaigning for the Party, Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge at a rally in the Behrampura area of Ahmedabad described PM Modi as Ravana. “In all these campaigns, he (Modi) only talks about himself. ‘Don’t look at anyone else, just look at Modi and vote’… how many times do we have to see your face? How many forms do you have? Do you have 100 heads like Ravan?” Kharge had said.
