"Narendra Modi’s pointed attack to PM on how Congress lacks a sense of history and geography"
"Would have been better if the PM had spoken about corruption and price rise but he was talking history and geography: Narendra Modi"
"The village you were born in was in India but now it is not. Who divided the nation into two: Narendra Modi to PM"
"Hindus and Muslims fought shoulder to shoulder in 1857 still your textbooks call it a Mutiny: Narendra Modi"
"For the Bhakti of one family many names have not reached the future generations and this is due to you: Narendra Modi"
"Shastron mein likha hai gareeb ki sewa hai narayan ki sewa, in dinon, gareeb toh bhool gaye, narayan woh ban gaye: Narendra Modi"

Speaking at the launch of Reliable Multi Specialty Hospital in Kheda district, Shri Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the Prime Minister, illustrating how the Congress lacks both a sense of history and geography. Shri Modi’s strong and fitting reply comes a day after the Prime Minister made a statement about BJP leaders changing the history and geography of the country. Shri Modi affirmed that everyone respects the Prime Minister and the office he holds but it is important that the truth must be told.

Shri Modi said, “I was hearing the Prime Minister’s speech while he was speaking in Chhattisgarh yesterday. It would have been better if the PM had spoken about corruption and price rise but he was talking history and geography. The Prime Minister said success cannot be achieved by making tall claims from big pulpits. I agree with him 100%- an example was seen in December 2012 in Gujarat and the people rejected the big talkers.”

Further questioning the Prime Minister Shri Modi avowed, “The nation wants to know who altered the geography of the nation. The village you were born in was in India but now it is not. Who divided the nation into two? It was the Congress that divided the nation and you tell us.” He went on, “China takes away our territory under your rule and that of other Congress Prime Ministers. This geography was changed under the Congress only.”

Giving yet another instance Shri Modi said, “Mahatma Gandhi undertook the Dandi March in 1930 and after that so many Congress leaders came here. You said the road taken by Mahatma Gandhi would become a heritage road and promised to give money, which you did not give. 6 moths ago you wrote a letter, which asked if we could alter the road by 30 kms! Who is changing geography here?”

Similarly, he also took on the Prime Minister with concrete historical facts. He asked the Prime Minister why is it that history books under him still call the events of 1857, when Hindus and Muslims fought shoulder to shoulder against the British, a Mutiny when it was a the First War of Independence?

Shri Modi declared, “For the Bhakti of one family many names have not reached the future generations and this is due to you.” He went on ask why was it that Pandit Nehru and Mrs. Indira Gandhi were conferred the Bharat Ratna during his lifetime, Shri Rajiv Gandhi was conferred the Bharat Ratna just after his demise but Sardar Patel and Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar were conferred the away years after their demise. Similarly, he remarked that the triumvirate of Lal, Bal and Pal have also been forgotten. Shri Modi also shared that a Minister of the UPA went to Andaman and Nicobar islands and removed the board containing the names of those who dedicated themselves for the nation. Likewise, no Congress Government thought about bringing back the ashes of Dr. Shyamji Krishna Varma for so many years, Shri Modi pointed.

Shri Modi made it very clear that the BJP is never in favour of dividing legacies and questioned why the Congress is not celebrating the birth anniversaries of greats such as Maulana Azad and Acharya Kripalani, which fall on 11th November. He affirmed, “Shastron mein likha hai gareeb ki sewa hai narayan ki sewa, in dinon, gareeb toh bhool gaye, narayan woh ban gaye.”
