New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday attacked the Congress over the role of “one family” in the freedom struggle and said they had neglected the contribution of others.

* Democracy was under threat during Congress rule

* Criticise me, but appreciate good government move

* Earthquake has finally struck. (PM takes a dig at Rahul Gandhi for his earlier remarks in which he said if he speaks will earthquake will come)

* Mother India has been looted under Congress

* Congress initiated move to advance budget dates

* Congress believes only one family got independence for India

* Congress blindly followed British traditions

* Congress afraid of losing polls, I am not

* Graft fight since assuming power

* Demonetisation was perfectly timed.
