Country needs decisive PM like Modi to re-emerge as a 'Golden Sparrow'- Badal
Giving a clarion call to the people to form the NDA Government at the centre, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday said the country needs a decisive Prime Minister like Narendra Modi to re-emerge as a 'Golden Sparrow' across the globe.
Addressing the gathering during the Sangat Darshan program of the Dina Nagar Assembly segment here today, Badal said that Modi has already proved his mettle as a visionary leader by making Gujarat a leading state in the country.
Badal impressed upon the people to rise above their parochial considerations and vote for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate to restore the lost glory of the country.
He said that every vote for Modi was a vote for the betterment of the country.
Badal also said that due to the misrule of Congress spanning over more than 55 years, the dreams of our freedom fighters to have a progressive India has not been realized.
He said that the result of wrong policies of the Congress party was that today the country was facing a number of social maladies like unemployment, poverty, starvation, illiteracy and inflation, which have accentuated the woes of the common man.
Badal said that in such a dismal scenario the need of the hour was that a decisive and able administrator like Modi must be elected as the Prime Minister of the country.
Taking a dig at the Congress Party, Badal said that the party was shying away to declare Rahul Gandhi as its prime ministerial candidate so that the young scion of the Nehru-Gandhi family would not go to political oblivion after their inevitable defeat.
Later on interacting with the media persons, Badal termed the newly constituted Third Front as a mixture of the political parties, and said that going by the mood of the nation this front was not capable of preventing Modi for becoming the Prime Minister of the country.
He said that the countrymen have already made up their mind to hand over the reign of the country in the strong hands of Modi due to which such fronts would hardly have any impact in the ensuing Lok Sabha polls.
Badal also dared the Third Front to declare their prime ministerial candidate so that the voters could make a choice between them and the BJP.
