New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the attempt of Opposition parties to form a grand alliance against the BJP government for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections is “political adventurism” that’s bound to fail.
“These groups that are being formed, Mahagathbandhan, or whatever they may call it, cannot create a gathbandhan of the electorate. Indian electorate has always kept the national interest paramount and I have a faith that it will not compromise its vote for such incongruent groups whose only focus is, as you say, ‘anyone but Modi’,” the Prime Minister told Hindustan Times in an interview.
PM Modi said this, after Opposition parties failed to win the election for the Rajya Sabha deputy chairman’s post while ruling National Democratic Alliance’s candidate won easily on Thursday.
“A non-ideological alliance of desperate and disparate groups is not a ‘Mahagathbandhan’ but political adventurism. It is a failed idea which never succeeded in past. History tells us that such adventurism failed in the past and will never succeed in the future. The people want a strong and a decisive government that is sensitive to their interests and gives them results,” he further said in the interview.
