‘Bachao, bachao, bachao’: Modi mimics Opposition unity rally in Kolkata, India

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has slammed the proposed ‘mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) of opposition parties, saying it was not just “anti-Modi” but against the people of India , and his political rivals have joined hands to save themselves from his campaign against corruption.

Modi’s remarks came at a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rally in Silvassa, in the union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli as opposition parties staged a show of strength in Kolkata. “Poori jamaat” (whole opposition) had gathered in West Bengal,and was “pleading for help”, said Modi.

The PM projected the coming general election as a fight between “positivity and negativity”, “development and corruption” and “mahagathbandhan and the people of India”.

“People who used to slam the Congress left, right and centre, are today standing with that party. This mahagathbandhan is not just against Modi but also against the people of India,” Modi said.
