Congress gets troubled when I remember martyrs: Modi


Mangaluru, Apr 13: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the Congress party gets troubled when he remembers martyrs.
"A nation that forgets its history and brave hearts who sacrificed their life ceases to exist. Now when Modi remembers these martyrs, it troubles the Congress and its allies," said Prime Minister Modi while addressing an election rally here.
He accused the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) (JDS) of being "inspired" by dynasty. The Prime Minister said, "Congress and JDS are inspired by dynasty and we are inspired by nationalism. They find ways to benefit their family but we work hard to bring the last person standing in the line forward."
Prime Minister Modi also said that this election is about deciding the fate of India in the 21st century, and not about electing the MP and PM.
"This election is not about who will become the MP, Minister, Prime Minister or who will form the government? This election is about deciding how India of 21st century will be," Prime Minister Modi said.
"When I see an old man wearing a slipper receiving the Padma Shri award, then I think this is my India with beliefs in its capabilities. Five years ago, no one could have imagined that a person serving the poor tribal can be conferred with the Padma Shri award," he said.
The Prime Minister also said that "a small mistake" during the recent Karnataka elections ruined the entire state. "Recently, Assembly elections were held. It left a little more to be desired. Did it ruin Karnataka or not? A small mistake was made, which led to such a heavy price," he said.
"Will you people let Karnataka be ruined further? Will we rectify the wrong that we did last time," he asked.
"It was because of your blessings and support that I was able to take strong and bold action in the interest of the country," he said.
LokSabha poll in Karnataka is scheduled to be conducted in two phases on April 18 and April 23. The results will be announced on May 23.
Modi also said that the Congress party's tendency of keeping things secret was responsible for the country lagging behind technologically.
"Congress says they did not conduct the test earlier as they wanted to keep it a secret. It was this approach of keeping secrets due to which India lagged behind in technology," said PM NarendraModi, while addressing a public rally here, in which he talked about "Mission Shakti".
"Today the courage is shown by Modi and the whole world is recognizing our stealth," he added.
Last month, PM Modi announced that India's anti-satellite weapon A-SAT successfully destroyed a live satellite on a low earth orbit, joining a group of three countries - the US, Russia and China - with such capability. His address to the nation generated a massive row with opposition alleging him of violating the MCC, however, Election Commission gave him a clean chit.
He also alleged that blasts took place in the Country in the Congress regime while Congress government put the entire blame on a person and change its Home Minister.
"When Congress' 'mahamilavati' remote government was at centre, didn't blasts occur in Bengaluru? Was not the nation living under fear of terror attacks? Did any major blast took place in last five years of your "chowkidaar'schowkidaari". It was the power of your one vote that made it possible," he said.
"When blasts used to take place in the nation, Congress government used to change its Home Minister and put the entire blame on one person. But Modi doesn't change the Home Minister, Modi changes the ways," said the prime minister. For its 28 LokSabha seats in Karnataka, 14 will go to polls on 18 April in the second phase while rest of the half seats will go for polls on 23 April in the third phase.
