Information & awareness the only 'disinfectant' to fight Congress, says PM Modi


New Delhi, In a fresh attack against the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday ridiculed the principal opposition party's stance on the Election Commission and the EVMs and said their stand changes every time with the results declared by the poll panel. "The Congress party continuously attacked the Election Commission. However, when the same Election Commission declares results which they like, they seem to be fine with them," Mr Modi told BJP workers from Tamil Nadu and Puducherry over Namo App. "The perfect answer to undemocratic behaviour of the Congress is to strengthen democracy," he said. "People of our country are the greatest force protecting our Democracy. The last time Congress tried to threaten Democracy, the people ensured they were stopped. Reach out to the people and tell them the Congress’s 'DNA' is still the same," he said. "It is said the sunlight is the best disinfectant. Similarly, information and awareness are important for democracy. So, we should keep the people informed about the Congress party and its dangerous games," Mr Modi said. The Prime Minister recorded his appreciation to the Congress workers from Vellore, South Chennai, Kanchipuram and others and said "no one can deny that our party is emerging as a strong force in both Puducherry and Tamil Nadu". "Youngsters from these places see BJP as the only party" - they can bank upon, Mr Modi said. "There is something very special about being with hard-working BJP 'Karyakartas'. Their energy, enthusiasm and dedication has no match," Prime Minister maintained. Mr Modi's interactions with BJP workers from Tamil Nadu and Puducherry came a day after party general secretary Ram Madhav said the saffron outfit is determined to give a stiff challenge to DMK-Congress alliance in Tamil Nadu and had said that "it will not be easy cakewalk" for M K Stalin-Rahul Gandhi duo to garner much dividends in the southern state. "Look, I don't want to talk about who are all (probable partners) we are talking to at this juncture.....I can only say that it won't be any easy cakewalk for DMK-Congress alliance," Mr Madhav had told a private television on Tuesday.
