In a bid to put the opposition parties in a fix, politicians can go any extent in making outrageous claims. This goes with right from the local leader to even the most senior wigs in the country. But no one expects ‘lame’ comments and ‘stupid’ claims from the Prime Minister of a nation. Though Narendra Modi belongs to BJP, he is the PM of the entire Nation.
Speaking at a public meeting in Chhattisgarh as a part of the election campaigning, PM Modi said, “Many ask me from where the money is pouring in for carrying out large-scale development activities. I say the money has always been there. It’s just that it is hidden in gunny bags. Because of demonetization stacks of cash hidden in gunny bags came out. This is the very reason, the projects are going in full swing.
The main reason for the backwardness of Chhattisgarh is due to the Congress rule”.
Being a loyal BJP leader PM Modi can slam the Congress for every reason he has. But it is foolish of him, or maybe he thinks that people are so foolish that they believe his claims on ‘demonetization’. Rs. 15.30 Lakh crore of HDC (High Denomination Currency, Rs. 500 and Rs. 100 notes), out of Rs. 15.41 Lakh crore HDC has been demonetized, according to RBI. Only a mere Rs. 10,720 crores of HDC were not demonetized. BJP claimed that at least Rs. 2 Lakh Crores of black money will be exposed in this exercise. But the entire operation ended as a failure with more than 145 people losing lives directly, and indirectly due to this exercise.
With facts available on the web, how can the PM make such outrageous claims that it is because of demonetization various infrastructure projects are in full swing? It is sad to see that the PM of the nation is behaving just like another ‘stupid’ politician.
