Monmohan was weak PM while Modi is strong: Uma


On the last leg of campaigning, two Union ministers- Rajnath Singh and Uma Bharti- canvassed for votes or the Doiwala BJP candidate Trivendra Singh Rawat on Monday. Although both the leaders were supposed to address a joint rally but Rajnath Singh arrived  late so Uma Bharti left the venue after seeking votes for Rawat.

Defending the PM on his raincoat barb, targeting the former PM Manmohan Singh, Uma said that the jibe was justified with Singh smelling nothing while scams were happening consistently under his nose. His pleading ignorance can cut no ice. Contrasting a  ‘weak’ Singh with a  ‘strong’ Modi, she said that  Modi had averred time and again that he himself would not eat and would not let others to eat, meaning ill-gotten money earned through corruption.

Referring to the strategic import of  Uttarakhand sharing borders with  a neighbouing country which is overtly hostile to the country, she said that it is thus an imperative from the security point of view that the people of the remote mountain villages are provided with the basic facilities to stop them from migrating.

Taking  potshots at three  leaders, most vociferous against  the demonetization drive- West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee, UP’s former  CM Mayawati and SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav,  she said that the trio is saying that they should have been informed  in advance. “This means that they should have been given time to help them to have the ill-gotten money shifted to safety,” she said.   Bharti also referred to the  sting video related to the Uttarakhand CM, saying that the whole country had seen him luring the dissident MLAs with   tempting offer.

She asked the people to vote for BJP to make sure that  the government-run schools and hospitals would be in positions to adequately compete with private schools and hospitals.

Commenting on the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi taunting BJP for accepting the garbage thrown by his party, she asked the voters to judge whether the party had appointed garbage as its chief minister, meaning Vijay Bahuguna, without naming him.
