New Delhi: Ridiculing the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) political resolution, Congress Party spokesperson Shobha Oza on Sunday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not messiah of the poor, but of the capitalist.
Oza told ANI, "It is funny on the part of BJP that they are calling Narendra Modi messiah of the poor, because what we are observing from past two years he is a messiah of the capitalists."
"The condition of the poor is worsening ever since Modi has come to power. The inflation is rising. We can also call Modi a messiah of event management; he very well is showcasing the UPA government policies as the mind of BJP," she added.
Minister for Parliamentary Affairs M. Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday moved Bharatiya Janata Party's ( BJP) Political Resolution on the last day of the two-day National Executive meeting here on Sunday, hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a "god's gift for India" and the "messiah of the poor".
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a god's gift for India; he is the messiah of the poor; he inherited challenges in each and every sector and is steering clear of them," said the resolution.
Heaping praise on Prime Minister Modi, the resolution reads: "India is recognised and respected everywhere because of the Prime Minister. He is on a mission to transform India, and is 'Modifier of Developing India'. He is a decisive leader, nationalist politician and provides progressive governance."
