Addressing a huge public meeting at Odisha’s Bargarh Lok Sabha constituency, PM Modi said that the Congress leader’s statement is an insult to President Droupadi Murmu and the whole tribal community.

He said that the BJP made a tribal daughter of Odisha the President of India but the Congress and its allies are repeatedly disrespecting President Murmu.

“President Droupadi Murmu recently visited Ram Mandir. She offered puja inside the sanctum sanctorum of the Ram Mandir. She sought the blessings of Ram Lalla for the well-being of the country. On the next day, one of the Congress leaders said that Ram Mandir would be purified with Ganga water. Isn't this an insult to the country, mothers and sisters and the whole tribal society?” PM Modi asked.

He also urged the people to “punish” Congress for the disrespect to President Murmu by making the party’s candidates lose their deposits in every Lok Sabha and Assembly seat for disrespecting President Droupadi Murmu.

PM Modi also said Congress is trying to snatch away the rights of SC/ST or OBCs by backstabbing the Constitution. He termed himself as the “Chowkidar” of the rights of all the poor and deprived people of the country.

“Congress wants to snatch away the reservation rights of ST/SC and OBC and give it to its vote bank. No one has the power to backstab the Constitution when a tribal daughter is holding the highest constitutional position and your Prdahan Sevak who belongs to a backward caste, holds the Prime Minister’s post. Modi won’t allow anyone to snatch the rights of ST/SC and OBC,” roared PM Modi.
