PM Modi raised questions about Congress’s assertion that rights should be allocated according to population. He pointed out that former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had previously stated that the first claim on the country’s resources belongs to minorities, particularly Muslims. Modi asked whether the Congress now intends to betray the interests of the minority population.

He further stated, “Congress is advocating that rights should be distributed based on the population. According to Congress, should the Hindus in this country also claim their rights in the same proportion? This would mean that Hindus, being the largest population, should have the first claim on the country’s resources. Is Congress trying to divide the country’s Hindus, leading to their downfall?”

PM Modi went on to challenge the Congress party by saying, “Can the Congress clarify whether rights will be allocated based on population? Does Congress intend to exclude minorities? Should the Hindus, as the largest population, assert their rights?”

Criticizing the Congress party, PM Modi remarked, “The Congress party is no longer being led by Congress members. Prominent Congress leaders are sitting silently, and they neither answer questions nor dare to speak out about such issues. The Congress is now being run by individuals who are aligned with anti-national forces. Congress is willing to divide India’s Hindus at any cost.”
