Pakistan desperate to make 'shehzada' the PM of India: Modi's veiled jibe at Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat poll rally

Anand (Gujarat): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday launched a vailed attack on  Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and said Pakistan was desperate to make 'Shehzada' India’s prime minister.

While addressing an election rally in Gujarat's Anand, Modi also described the Congress party as a 'mureed' (follower) of Pakistan.

"The Congress is languishing here and Pakistanis are shedding tears," the Prime Minister said.

"Pakistan leaders want to make 'Shehzada' of Congress India's prime minister," he added, taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi.

The Prime Minister's comments follow Pakistan’s former minister in Imran Khan's cabinet in Pakistan Chaudhry Fawad Hussain’s admiration for Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday.

The ex-Pakistani minister shared a video on X showing Rahul Gandhi criticizing the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Further denouncing the Congress party, PM Modi stated during the rally, "The nation witnessed Congress's governance for 60 years, and BJP's 'seva-kaal' for 10 years. Under Congress's 60-year rule, approximately 60 per cent of the rural population lacked access to toilets. BJP achieved this in just 10 years."

Prime Minister Modi also alleged that the Congress aims to amend India's Constitution to extend reservations for Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), and Other Backward Classes (OBC) to Muslims.

He stated, "I dare the Congress to give in writing that they will not amend the Constitution to grant reservations based on religion."

Enumerating the BJP's accomplishments, PM Modi highlighted, "Over the last 10 years, we have provided tap water connections to 14 crore households, whereas the Congress managed to do so for only 3 crore households in 60 years."

Modi said that his sole aim is to make India a developed nation by 2047 and work tirelessly to achieve this objective.

"I have been dedicated to serving Gujarat for numerous years. In 2014, you put your faith in me with the responsibility to serve the nation. During my tenure in Gujarat, our guiding principle was that the state's progress contributes to the advancement of the entire nation. I hold just one aspiration: by the time we commemorate our 100 years of Independence in 2047, India should stand as a developed nation," declared the Prime Minister.

"I assure you that I will tirelessly work around the clock to realize the vision of a developed India by 2047," PM Modi affirmed.
