Congress People trying to teach me democracy: Modi

Vastavam web: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday indirectly targeted the Congress. He said: “Some people in Delhi teach me lessons in democracy morning and evening. The Prime Minister said this while discussing the Panchayat elections after launching the “Sehat Yojana”. This statement of Modi has come after Congress MP Rahul Gandhi recently spoke of having a ‘fictional democracy’ in the country.

Speaking about the Jammu-Kashmir District Development Council elections during his virtual address, Modi said: “These elections have shown how strong democracy is in the country. But I want to express another pain before the country… Jammu-Kashmir has conducted the three-tier Panchayati Raj system election in one year of it becoming a UT and delivered the people’s right to them.

The Prime Minister said, “After becoming a Union Territory, Jammu and Kashmir moved forward by accepting a three-tier Panchayati Raj system, while in Puducherry, despite the Supreme Court’s order, panchayat and municipal elections are not happening. Those who teach democracy, their party is ruling there. The Supreme Court had ordered the elections in 2018 but the government ruling there is constantly avoiding them. Modi said this shows the difference between the statements and actions of political parties. The central government is constantly trying to ensure that the people of the village play the greatest role in the development of the village.
