Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday (27 July) launched a scathing attack on Congress and its allies, saying that the joint Opposition alliance has changed its name from 'UPA' to I.N.D.I.A to avoid being called out for their past sins.
PM Modi said that the Congress and its allied parties have adopted a new tactic now, and this tactic is - changing the name.
"In the past, whenever any generation or company earned a bad reputation, they would immediately try to deceive people and continue their business by putting up a new signboard. The Congress and its allies are doing doing the same thing," PM Modi said at a rally in Rajasthan's Sikar.
"To distance themselves from the sins of the previous UPA government, they have opted to rechristen their party as I.N.D.I.A.," PM Modi said.
He highlighted that East India Company, SIMI and PFI also had India in their names but they didn't had the country's best interests at heart.
Earlier on Tuesday too, PM Modi had attacked the Opposition alliance over their name, reportedly saying that naming their bloc, I.N.D.I.A, was just an attempt to mislead people.
