Congress spokesperson, Manish Tewari, said Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was concerned about the BJP not performing well in this year’s state assembly poll.
The Congress Party hits back at Modi after he accused the UPA of promoting cow slaughter and export of beef to bring ‘Pink Revolution’. It said that Modi was suffering from a sense of deep sense of insecurity, because his own popularity in Gujarat was declining very rapidly.
“The Gujarat Chief Minister is suffering from a sense of deep insecurity because his own popularity in Gujarat, which is heading for an election, is declining very rapidly. It’s always been his strategy to try and hit out at Delhi, wanting to evoke reaction from us, which helps him to elevate his stature. Therefore, we are not going to play the game. The Gujarat Chief Minister has to really fight with the Congress leadership on its own turf” said Tewari.
Modi, has in his latest blog, said he is saddened by the fact that the UPA Government at the Centre is promoting the slaughter of cows and export of beef to bring about a ‘Pink Revolution’.
“It saddens me that present UPA Government led by Congress is promoting slaughtering of cows and exporting beef to bring ‘Pink Revolution’. Our ancient Indian ethos and values doesn’t teach us to kill mother cow, who nurture us from the day we start taking shape in the womb of our mother till we leave this mother earth,” says Modi in his blog.
“Sadly, the UPA seems unbothered about this rich ethos of our culture. It wants to make India the biggest exporter of beef! Mahatma Gandhi and Acharya Vinoba Bhave worked tirelessly for the protection of mother cow but this Government abandoned their teachings. Should we feel proud of this endeavor of the UPA Government led by Congress, which is founded on the killing of our mother cow?” he adds.
