Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked the Congress vehemently during a public meeting in Betul, Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday (14 November).

He said, "This is the same Congress that believed Ram Mandir would not be built, but now the construction of a magnificent temple in Ayodhya is on the brink of completion. We not only speak but also demonstrate through our actions," according to ABP Live.

While he did not explicitly mention Rahul Gandhi, he remarked, "I heard that a Congress leader said that all people have made in China mobile phones. Arey murkhon ke sardar (boss of fools), in which world do you live? Congress leaders have a mental disorder of not seeing country's achievements. Don't know which foreign glasses they wear that they can't see."

PM Modi stated that he would be visiting the land of Birsa Munda on the occasion of Janjatiya Gaurav Divas tomorrow. He said, "We have opened the treasury of our government for the poor. Congress knows how to loot. Tomorrow, the BJP is set to launch a significant scheme of Rs 24,000 crore."

He further said, "Today, we are receiving reports from across Madhya Pradesh that Congress has accepted defeat." He emphasised that Congress's false promises cannot stand in the face of Modi's guarantee, which means a guarantee of fulfillment.

"We have a place in our hearts for tribals. Therefore, when the opportunity arose, the BJP recognised your pride and understood your sentiments. That is why a tribal girl born in a poor family, Droupadi Murmu, is today the President of the country and is leading the nation," Modi said.

PM Modi praising the manifesto said, "This manifesto is the development charter of the people of Madhya Pradesh. Applause is resounding from all sides for the BJP's guarantee, whether it's the Eklavya Residential School in every tribal block, a medical college in every tribal district, financial assistance and permanent housing for the Ladli sisters, or praises for MP BJP's guarantee for the MSP of paddy and wheat for farmers."
