Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday attacked the Congress over its leader Sam Pitroda’s hua to hua (It happened, so what?) remark on the anti-Sikh riots in 1984. “The remark reflects the arrogance of the opposition party,” PM Modi said, addressing a rally at Ratlam in Madhya Pradesh. Modi said ‘hua to hua’ are not just three words but reflect arrogance of the Congress.
Earlier, the Congress party had distanced itself from senior party leader Sam Pitroda's remarks on 1984 anti-Sikh riots. "We continue to support the quest for justice for 1984 riot victims. Any opinion remark made by any individual to the contrary including Sam Pitroda is not the opinion of Congress party," the grand old party had said in a statement.
While they (Congress leaders) were saying "hua to hua", the people of the country were saying “enough is enough”, Modi said.
These 'mahamilavati' people are saying ‘hua toh hua’, but the country is now saying ‘mahamilavati logon ab bohot hua’ (enough is enough), he said.
"Poor people who never got pucca houses, electricity, LPG, toilets during Congress era due to its hua to hua casual approach are now saying enough is enough," he said.
Targeting the Kamal Nath government in MP over its alleged failure to implement its loan waiver promise in the state, Modi likened people to God and said, “The Congress cheated God.”
He said the Congress had a problem saying ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, but was happy abusing him. PM Modi also took a jibe at Congress veteran Digvijay Singh, who is contesting the Lok Sabha polls from Bhopal, for not casting his vote.
The fourth and last phase of Lok Sabha polls in the state will be held on May 19.
