Prime Minister Narendra Modi today attacked the opposition saying that their focus is family and not the nation. “For them, family is first, nation is nothing. Corruption is their motivation. The bigger the scam, the more corrupt the person, the higher their seat at the table,” PM Modi said while inaugurating a new terminal at Veer Savarkar Airport terminal in Andaman and Nicobar’s Port Blair.
“Democracy means ‘of the people, by the people, for the people’. But the Opposition’s mantra is – of the family, by the family, for the family,” he added.
The attack comes as 26 Opposition parties have gathered in Bengaluru to devise a strategy to take on BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
PM Modi dubbed the ongoing Opposition conclave a meeting of “hardcore corrupts”
The new building, built at a cost of around Rs 710 crore, will boost the connectivity of the island. With a total built-up area of around 40,800 sq m, the new terminal building will be capable of handling about 50 lakh passengers annually.
