Amreli (Gujarat) [India], November 27 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday lashed out at the Congress Party and said Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) drive against corruption rattled the grand old party.
While addressing a rally here, Modi said "Our efforts against corruption have naturally troubled the Congress".
The prime minister said he might have sold tea to earn a living, but never sold his nation.
"The Congress dislikes me because of my poor origin. Can a party stoop so low? Yes, a person belonging to a poor family has become the prime minister. They do not fail to hide their contempt for this fact. Yes, I sold tea but I did not sell the nation," Prime Minister Modi said, while addressing a rally in Rajkot.
The elections in Gujarat will be held in two phases on December 9 and 14. While, the counting of votes will be on December 18. (ANI)
