Opposition 'mahagatbandhan' will send country to ICU: Modi
New Delhi, Feb 28: Dismissing the 'mahagatbandhan' of opposition parties as 'mahamilavat', Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said it would send the country to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
Addressing BJP workers across the country, he suggested that a loss for the party, like in 2004, will jeopardise development works and ease of corruption will replace ease of doing business.
The prime minister also said 2014 was a mandate for fulfilling people's necessities while the 2019 election will be about fulfilling people's aspirations.
The grand opposition alliance, the 'mahagatbandhan', was highly adulterated, 'mahamilavat', he said.
The prime minister was interacting with about one crore BJP workers in 15,000 locations through what the party said was the "world's largest video conference.
He also said it is necessary to ensure that nothing is done to dent the morale of the security forces.
Modi also said India will fight, live, work and win as one and nobody can create hurdles in its march towards development.
"The enemy is trying to destabilise us, carry out terror strikes... they want to stop our growth... we will fight, live work and win as one," he said.
Modi said in his address that the 2014 election was a mandate for fulfilling people's necessities and the 2019 polls will be about fulfilling people's aspirations.
Indians have to be hard working in all spheres and should be grateful to all those who are protecting the country, the prime minister said.
Some people, for their selfish interests, dislike a strong government, he said. BJP workers need to tell people the benefits of a strong government, he added.
