Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday targeted the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Samajwadi Party for practising caste-based politics and said the current Lok Sabha elections will ensure the end of both the parties and their brand of politics.
“Voters have said in 2014 that they do not want caste based politics. People want development. In 2017 also people gave that message. But they don’t want to accept the truth. Now they will be forced to buy locks from Aligarh to close their shop,” Modi said at an election rally in Aligarh.
He also held the two parties responsible for lawlessness in western Uttar Pradesh in earlier years.
“Western Uttar Pradesh was burning and innocents were being targeted by criminals. Who saved criminals of Muzaffarnagar riot? Voters in western UP have understood those politicians were not truthful.”
Modi said the Opposition was cut off from reality.
