All parties uniting to defeat one person: PM Modi

“All the opposition parties have come together against one person. Their intent is to make a ‘majboor’ sarkar. They don’t want the country to have a ‘mazboot’ sarkar,” the PM said.

It was the moment everyone at Ramlila Maidan had been waiting for, and it came on Saturday afternoon when PM Narendra Modi took to the stage and announced the party’s mantra for the upcoming general elections to over 12,000 BJP workers.

Giving the valedictory address at the BJP’s two-day National Council meeting, the Prime Minister told all his workers and the party’s leadership that the 2019 polls will be a contest between a ‘mazboot’ (strong) and a ‘majboor’ (helpless) alternative.

“All the opposition parties have come together against one person. Their intent is to make a ‘majboor’ sarkar. They don’t want the country to have a ‘mazboot’ sarkar,” the PM said.

Modi’s message was aimed at instilling confidence in the saffron party’s cadre on a day long-standing arch rivals, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party, put behind a two-decade-old feud to come together and challenge the BJP’s might in Uttar Pradesh. PM Modi told his party members that they had “nothing to fear” since there was no taint on the NDA government.

“It is the first time when there is no graft charge against the government. The previous government had pushed the country into darkness. The years between 2004 and 14 were lost amid allegations of scams and corruption,” he told the packed house.
