Karnataka Elections 2018: PM Modi said Congress should learn patriotism from the Mudhol hound dogs
The Prime Minister said there had been such a ‘fall’ in the party that a Congress leader went to be amid those raising slogans like “Bharat ke tukde honge“, giving them blessings.
He was allegedly referring to Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s visit to the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus to be with a section of students during the controversy over anti-national slogans being allegedly chanted at the campus.
“When there is discussion about patriotism in our country, when there is a discussion about rashtra bhakti, raashtra geet, Vande mataram, some people are worried,” said PM Modi at an election rally in Jamkhandi, Karnataka.
PM Modi said the country won freedom because of patriotism, and “today if we have started a great campaign of development on the basis of patriotism, Congress and its companions feel a foul smell in patriotism… their health gets upset smelling patriotism.”
“Did anyone think that after Independence Congress has fallen to an extent that today Congress leaders are going to be amidst those who shout slogans like “Bharat ke tukde honge” and are giving them their blessings,” he said.
