In a sharp attack against the Congress, the prime minister said "injustice" was meted out to the country's resources under Congress' rule.

He claimed that the Congress has three realities 'naamdaar parivar' (dynastic family), corruption and plenty of false promises. "Do you want a stronger India or helpless India? Do you want a Congress govt that makes country weak or BJP that makes country strong?" Modi said.

"Tiny nations which gained independence during the time when India got independence went ahead in development but our country lagged behind," he said.
