Congress in ICU, using other opposition parties as support system to survive: PM

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the Congress was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and using other parties as support system to survive, observing it is getting desperate to join hands with any party to forge a grand opposition alliance for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls,

Modi also said the wind is blowing in the BJP’s favour and that opportunist opposition parties are clutching each other’s hands to withstand its force.

He exhorted party workers to follow the mantra of ‘Mera Booth Sabse Mazboot’ to ensure BJP’s victory in the next general elections.

Addressing party workers of five Lok Sabha constituencies via the NaMo app, Modi said the BJP’s biggest strength is its workers. Their hard work has ensured the party’s historic success and progress in a short span of four years, he added.

He attributed the party’s success to its workers and their grip over their respective polling booths.

” ‘Mera Booth Sabse Mazboot’ (my polling booth, the strongest)…This is the only mantra and this is our strength,” Modi said in a video interaction.

Replying to a question on opposition parties trying to stitch an alliance for the 2019 polls, Modi assured the party workers that the BJP will win again. (AGENCIES)
