Oppn wants a ‘majboor’ govt: PM Modi on SP-BSP alliance
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has lashed out at the opposition for its efforts to cobble up an anti-BJP front ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha election, calling it a ‘failed experiment’.
“These days, a campaign is going on to publicise a failed experiment in the history of Indian politics by the name of mahagathbandhan,” he said on Saturday addressing BJP workers at the party’s national council meet in New Delhi.
He said the opposition was trying to make a ‘majboor sarkaar’ (helpless government) instead of a ‘majboot sarkar’ (strong government) as they wanted to indulge in scams and corruption.
The PM’s comments came on a day the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party formed an alliance for the 2019 polls.
Both the parties will contest 38 seats each in UttarPradesh, leaving two seats for the Congress and two for other allies.
