Mahagathbandhan will send India to ICU: PM Modi slams opposition alliance at BJP workers meet

New Delhi: Dismissing the ‘mahagathbandhan’ of opposition parties as ‘mahamilavat’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said it would send the country to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Addressing BJP workers across the country, he suggested that a loss for the party, like in 2004, will jeopardise development works and ease of corruption will replace ease of doing business.

The prime minister also said 2014 was a mandate for fulfilling people’s necessities while the 2019 election will be about fulfilling people’s aspirations.

The true face of the grand opposition alliance – the “mahagathbandhan”, is that of “mahamilaavat”, he cautioned.

Speaking with booth-level workers of the BJP, PM Modi said “India will stand as one, India will work as one, India will grow as one, India will fight as one, India will win as one.”

The prime minister was interacting with about one crore BJP workers across 15,000 locations through what the party said was the “world”s largest video conference.”

The opposition has accused the BJP and PM Modi of focusing on politics and elections at a time the government should be worried about the tension with Pakistan.
