At a time when the grand alliance against the BJP is taking shape in Kolkata, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the political formation.
He said that the sole aim of this bloc is to oust the BJP from power.
Attacking those propagating the idea of ‘Mahagathbandhan’, the PM said it was a ‘gathbandhan’ (alliance) not just against his party, but also against the people of this country.
“My actions against corruption have infuriated some people. It’s but natural for them to get angry as I’ve prevented them from looting public money. Consequently, they have now formed an alliance called Mahagathbandhan,” the PM said.
PM Modi made these remarks while addressing a public function at Silvassa, the capital of the Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli.
He went on to add that the Opposition leaders weren’t even united and that they have already started bargaining for their share.
