“It Was Not Able to Preserve Family Seat in UP,” Prime Minister Modi Attacks Rahul Gandhi During Alathur Rally

At his Alathur rally, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a subtle jab at Congressman Rahul Gandhi for losing the Amethi seat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on Monday, April 15. During an electoral rally in Alathur, Kerala, PM Modi blasted the Congress for its alliance with the SDPI.

Rahul Gandhi of the Congress lost the Amethi seat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections to Smriti Irani of the BJP. “A big leader of Congress has found it difficult to save the respect of his family seat in Uttar Pradesh and has made his new base in Kerala,” the Prime Minister joked during the Alathur rally, referencing Gandhi in the process. The prime minister said that while Rahul Gandhi became victorious in Wayanad, Kerala, he hasn’t addressed the concerns of the populace. “The Congress crown prince will seek votes from Keralans, but he will say nothing at all about your problems,” the man said.

“To win the elections, Congress has entered into a backdoor agreement with the political wing of an organisation which has been banned in the country for its anti-national tendencies,” Prime Minister Modi remarked, criticising Congress for allying with the Socialist Party of Kerala (SDPI). The political arm of the now-banned PFI is called SDPI.

Additionally, he criticised the Congress, saying that it portrayed India as a weak nation, whereas the BJP has strengthened it. He said that the Left Front would destroy Kerala, just as it did in other places where it has previously held power, and accused the Left administration of impeding the Centre’s development initiatives in the southern state. PM Modi said, “The Left parties have just one character—nothing left and nothing right—regardless of whether they are in Kerala, West Bengal, or Tripura.

Modi also accused the Left Party of embezzling money meant for the needy, citing the Karuvannur Cooperative Bank fraud as evidence against the CPI-led administration in the state. He asked Rahul Gandhi, the MP for Wayanad, why he was keeping quiet about it.
