RANCHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday lashed out at the Congress and its leader Rahul Gandhi, asserting that any industrialist will think 50 times before investing in states ruled by the party, owing to the "shehzada's use of Maoist language".

Addressing an election rally at Ghatshila in Jamshedpur, the PM further said that the "Congress and JMM does not even know the A,B,C of development".

“Congress’ crown prince (Rahul Gandhi) opposes industries, industrialists, investments. Which industrialist will make investments in Congress-ruled states and will happen to the youths of these states?,” Modi said.

The PM further claimed that the industrialists are hesitating to open industries in Congress-ruled states whose ideology are anti-industrialist.

"I dare the CMs of Congress and INDIA bloc-ruled states to answer as to whether they agree with the anti-industry and anti-industrialist language of their 'shehzada'," Modi said.

“Modi has driven away the Maoists therefore, the Congress and JMM have taken the responsibility of collecting levy from the businessmen,” said the Prime Minister.

"Congress never cared for you…they only gave the slogan of garibi hatao, but Modi is the son of a poor mother and knows what is poverty is and hence he has pulled out 25 crore people from poverty," he said.

Taking a dig at Gandhi over his decision to contest from the Rae Bareli Lok Sabha seat, he said the Congress 'shehzada' rushed to that constituency, saying "it is my mummy's seat, which not even an eight-year-old school boy will say".

“You must have seen that the Congress crown prince has reached Raebareli after running away from Wayanad saying that the seat belongs to his mother. Even a school child would not say that the school belongs to his father even if his father had studied there…but he is saying that the seat belongs to his mother. His mother also went to Raebareli and said that she was handing over her son to them. Did they not get a single Congress worker who had been serving the family for the last 50 years, whom they could have fielded from there,” said the Prime Minister.

The PM added that these nepotistic people are the same people batting for inheritance tax.

"Your children will not get the properties earned in your lifetime, it will be grabbed by Congress," Modi added.

Lashing out at the Congress, the PM said that the grand old party along with JMM and RJD has looted Jharkhand at every stage.
