Lok Sabha elections 2019: ‘One family’s desire for power cost nation so greatly’:…

In his latest attack on the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India’s institutions have been the biggest casualty of dynastic politics.

PM Modi on Wednesday wrote on his blog that the public voted decisively in the 2014 general elections for “honesty over dynasty” and “development over decay”.

“As you go to vote- remember the past and how one family’s desire for power cost the nation so greatly. If they could do it then, they can surely do it now. Eternal vigilance remains the price of liberty,” he said.

Modi said Indians were tired of the country being in the “Fragile Five”, where corruption, cronyism and nepotism made headlines instead of anything positive. He said India voted to shed the baggage of the past in pursuit of a better future.

The Prime Minister also targeted Congress for their “contempt for the courts”.
