Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked the Congress manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections 2024 ‘Nyay Patra’ on Saturday and said that it reflects the same thinking of the Muslim League during the freedom movement.

“The Congress manifesto completely bears the imprint of the Muslim League and whatever part of it is left is completely dominated by the leftists,” he stated while campaigning at Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh.

The Prime Minister also remarked that the ‘Nyay Patra’ shows that Congress has no vision to take India forward in the 21st century. Congress is completely cut off from the hopes and aspirations of today’s India, he said.

Hitting back at these remarks, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said on X that PM Modi “always adopts divisive politics, tells lies and says useless things” and “always works to divert the attention of the public from the real issues of the country.”

He accused the Prime Minister of not knowing facts and maintained that it was Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, founder of Jana Sangh and president of Hindu Mahasabha, who ran a coalition government with Muslim League in Bengal, Sindh and North West Frontier Province.

Speaking to ANI, Ramesh also pointed out that it was BJP leaders LK Advani and Jaswant Singh who visited Pakistan and praised the Muslim League leader and founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, something which no Congress leaders have done, he said.
