both Congress and SP for practising dynastic politics and nepotism, the BJP
leader was quite acerbic in his criticism of Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s
son-in-law Robert Vadra.“For them
all that matters is dynasty and nepotism. And now even even the extended family
is being covered. They are those, who are not ready to recognize the power of
the community beyond their family members.
people, who think that that only their sons and daughters will do something and
are concerned only with them or their uncle-aunt and insulting the future of
Uttar Pradesh,” he said.Mocking
Rahul over his visits to the homes of the poor and Dalits, Modi said that he
goes to the poor to understand how does a poor person look as he has not seen
poverty like someone, who has not seen Taj Mahal visits Agra to see it.“In the

Minister said, “I have no regrets that I was born in a poor or backward family.
I feel sad when leaders of SP, BSP and Congress make mockery of it and say
whether a tea vendor can run the country.This
shows the mentality of these leaders. They have become so haughty that they
mock poverty. This does not concern Modi.“What is
under question is the mentality of these leaders, who mock my poverty, my
childhood every now and then.They
should hear it out. I have sold tea and am proud of it. I have not done
anything like selling the nation”.

guns in Uttar Pradesh for security and attacked parties like SP and BSP saying

decided that when a new government is formed after May 16, I will set up a
committee to find out what cases are pending against whom. Candidates submit in
their form during filing nominations the details of cases against them.

ask the Supreme Court to hear the cases fast. Those, who have committed crime
will go to jail and their seats will go to candidates with clean image. No
accused will dare to fight polls.
