LUCKNOW: Claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was getting support of the entire country, Union Minister Kalraj Misra today alleged that Congress and Left parties were out to tarnish his image.
"The Prime Minister is getting support of everyone in the country as he had got of 6 crore people belonging to all faiths in Gujarat," the MSME minister said at the conclusion of BJP's state working committee meeting here.
"But Congress and Left parties are not able to digest this fact and are out to tarnish the image of the Prime Minister and also that of the country," Misra said.
Training his guns at former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he said, "During the previous government our prime minister was considered as weak PM all over the world and the country was regarded as a land of scams.
"But Modi went abroad and changed this image and upheld the dignity of 125 crore Indians," Misra said.
Referring to the JNU row, he said some anarchists and members of opposition groups were trying to "destabilise" the country by raising anti-national slogans and the incident of sedition that took place there is being described as one of "freedom of expression".
Earlier, inaugurating the working committee meeting, national vice president of the party and incharge of state affairs Om Mathur said that an atmosphere of confidence has been created.
Mathur said both BSP and SP together have made Uttar Pradesh backward and people here have been made to face exploitation.
"We will have to connect with the minds and hearts of voters and will have to go till the grassroot-level to resolve their problems," Mathur said.
BJP state unit president Laxmikant Bajpai in his address said the chief minister, who holds the home portfolio, is responsible for the bad law and order and atrocities on dalits in the state.
He termed BSP President Mayawati as "vote ki saudagar".
Besides discussing the state of affairs in Uttar Pradesh under the Samajwadi Party government, corruption and bad law and order, the working committee also criticised the previous BSP government.
It passed a resolution for all round development of the state.
