Opposition trying to remove me; I am trying to remove terrorism, poverty: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the Opposition was trying to remove him, while he was trying to wipe out terrorism, poverty and corruption.

“The person who has the blessings of 125 crore people… why should he fear anybody, be it Hindustan, Pakistan, thieves or the dishonest. India and 125 crore people have given this strength,” Mr. Modi said at a rally in Kalaburagi, Karnataka.

“The world is witnessing a new kind of courage. It is not Modi’s but of 125 crore people of India,” he said, referring to the Indian Air Force’s air strike on a terror camp in Balakot, Pakistan, on February 26.

Calling the “mahagathbandhan” (grand alliance of opposition parties) a “mahamilavat” (high adulteration), he said the country wanted a strong government.

Charge against Karnataka govt

Mr. Modi said, “Karnataka has a helpless government and Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy is a remote-controlled Chief Minister. The Congress-JD(S) alliance came to power by backstabbing people.”

The Prime Minister accused the State government of doing injustice to farmers. He said it was not cooperating in the implementation of “Pradhan Mantri Kissan Samman Nidhi” scheme.

“If the state tries to create a wall, the farmers of the State will demolish it,” he said.

Development of the Northeast was a top priority for his government, he added.
