Cong Star Campaigner Ibrahim Criticizes Nalin, Calls Shah-Modi duo Shumbha-Nishumbha
Mangaluru: “In 20 years, there hasn’t been this type of election. There will not be this type of election in the future as well because the main issue of this election is if India wants future elections or not. Should the Constitution of India written by Babasaheb Ambedkar continue to exist? This election will decide that. It is not about any one person. The BJP themselves tell us not to look at them but to look at Modi. It is like asking a bride to decide on her bridegroom by looking at his father’s or mother’s face”, said Former Cabinet Minister and Congress MLC C M Ibrahim in a press meet held at the DCC Office, Mallikatta here, on April 16.
Addressing the mediapersons Ibrahim said, “I want to tell this to the people of Dakshina Kannada. Kateel has had two terms as MP. What has he done? Syndicate Bank and Canara Bank have been nationalized. But he (Nalin Kumar Kateel) has taken the bank founded by Sundaram Shetty & AB Shetty and given it to Gujaratis. I want to urge the people of Dakshina Kannada to save the region, to let Hindus and Muslims live in peace. I have granddaughters who have Hindu classmates. If one of them comes to the house, can I shout at them and send them back? The mind of communalism does not allow friendship to survive. If a boy and girl cannot roam around here together, what age have we gone back to? Let us change with the times. That is why the press has a big responsibility too. When Deve Gowda was Prime Minister, there was a press conference every month. Has the press ever even met Modi?”
He further said, “In five years, what did Modi do? When I was a Central Govt. minister, I used to roam around with Modi. Advani and Vajpayee were my jail mates. Modi talks about war. India had won a war with Pakistan before Modi was born. Did they give credit to Indira Gandhi or Lal Bahadur Shastri when wars were won by them? The Manmohan Singh Govt. conducted 12 surgical strikes. No government has ever publicized surgical strikes. However in the Modi govt. as soon as surgical strikes were announced Yeddyurappa said that they will win 20 more seats. Army Chiefs have sent a letter to Rashtrapati Bhavan protesting the politicization of armed forces. What has BJP said in their Manifesto? Is there anything apart from Ram Mandir in their Manifesto? We have promised 72000 rupees in our Manifesto and they have promised only 6000 rupees. In Siddaramiah’s govt. you could fill your stomach with ten rupees. Under Modi govt. you can pay ten rupees to empty your stomach.”
He further said, “Modi has sidelined BJP veterans like MM Joshi, Advani, Arun Shourie, and Yashwant Sinha. Why are there no posters with their picture? There are only two people on every poster. Shumba and Nishumba. Amit Shah and Narendra Modi. Today let me tell you that whatever I say will happen. Modi will not be the Prime Minister this time. In Karnataka, JDS and Congress will win majority number of seats.”
State Government Minister for Women and Child Development Jayamala, District Congress President Harish Kumar, Congress Block President Vishwas Das, and others were also present.
