Prime Minister Narendra Modi remarked on Sunday, criticizing the declining state of the Congress party. He highlighted that a party that once secured 400 seats is now struggling to field candidates for 300 seats in the current Lok Sabha election, labeling it as a “symbol of instability.” During a public rally in Rajasthan's Jalore, PM Modi stated that the citizens of the nation are holding the Congress accountable for its “sins.”

“You have given your blessings to BJP every time, this time too, the people of Jalore-Sirohi are saying ‘Phir ek baar Modi sarkar'. In the first phase of polling for the Lok Sabha elections, half of Rajasthan has taught a good lesson to the Congress party. The patriotic people of Rajasthan know that Congress couldn't provide a strong government in the Centre. Their government used to run on remote control. The country does not want the conditions that existed before 2014 to return again,” PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister, without directly mentioning Sonia Gandhi, criticized the former Congress president for opting to enter Parliament through the Rajya Sabha route.

“The Congress party itself is responsible for the condition it has reached today. Earlier, Rajasthan sent former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Rajya Sabha, and now you have another leader of Congress in Rajya Sabha (Sonia Gandhi). People who knew that they could not win, ran away from the race and reached Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan. Congress hollowed the country by spreading the termites of ‘parivaarwad' and corruption. The youth of the country is so angry with Congress that it doesn't want to see their face again,” the PM said.

He also asserted in the Jalore rally that the Congress party, being a symbol of instability, along with its alliance, lacks the capability to effectively govern the country.

“Congress was in power for 60 years; once they used to win 400 seats, but today they can't even find candidates for 300 seats. They are paying the price of their wrongdoing. Now they have made an opportunistic alliance in the name of the INDIA bloc which got its wings clipped before it could take flight. The so-called allies are contesting against each other in the States and at least in 25 per cent of seats,” PM Modi said.

Prime Minister Modi reiterated that it is the mission of his government to ensure that every household and farmer in the country receives access to water.

“It is my mission to make sure water reaches every house and farmer in the country. In the last 5 years, Over 11 crore families have benefitted under the Jal Jeevan mission. Unfortunately, the Congress government in Rajasthan did corruption in this also. Bhajanlal govt is conducting a probe into this. If there was no Congress government in Rajasthan, then we could have reached our targets under the ‘ Har Ghar Jal' scheme,” he said.

Rajasthan comprises 25 Lok Sabha seats. The voting for 12 Lok Sabha seats in Rajasthan took place during the first phase on Friday, while the remaining 13 seats will be contested in the second phase on April 26.
