On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi strongly criticized the promises made by the Congress if they win the upcoming election in Karnataka. He stated that the “guarantee” of the party has expired, and they are in no position to offer any assurance.
He asserted, “I urge the youth that those who try to fool you by distributing freebies, you should think about your bright future and the future of your generations.”
The Prime Minister highlighted that the citizens of Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan, where the Congress party is in power, are yet to receive the benefits that were promised to them. He expressed his concern over the situation.
“The people of Himachal and Rajasthan are waiting for Congress to fulfil its guarantees. Congress means a guarantee of lies, Congress means a guarantee of corruption. Congress means a guarantee of the dynasty. Congress is in that state where they cannot give any guarantee. And their warranty has also expired…” he said.
The Karnataka government, led by Congress, has pledged to provide ₹ 2,000 every month to all female heads of households if they vote for them in the upcoming election.
PM Modi expressed his disapproval of the practice of offering freebies by certain political parties in order to gain power. He denounced this as an unacceptable approach.
“Some political parties have made politics a medium of power and corruption. They are resorting to any method to gain power. They do not care about the country’s future, future generations, and the people of Karnataka. Due to freebie politics, many states are spending so much on their political points that they are getting drowned in debt. The country and the government do not run like this,” he said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasized that governments must consider both the current and future generations when governing and that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is striving to make India a developed nation.
“The government has to think about the future along with the present. The BJP is not working on shortcuts but on the making of a developed India. We do not think for the five years (of governance), but we think for the country. Every possible help is being given to the poor families to tackle the immediate challenges,” the Prime Minister said.
He also noted that the Centre had provided relief packages, food rations, employment opportunities and other assistance to the citizens in their time of need.
He stated, “When there was a need during COVID, we gave free vaccines to the country because we had to save lives. But if we have to take the country forward, we have to get rid of the freebie culture. The BJP government is investing in modern digital, physical, and social infrastructure, which will also benefit future generations.”
