"There have been elections earlier also in which opposition parties would come together to defeat the government. But this is the first election in which alliances are being built to prevent Modi from coming to power," he said addressing a BJP meeting in East Delhi. (Agencies)
Attacking the Aam Aadmi Party, whose leader Arvind Kejriwal he had targeted in Jammu in the morning, Modi said AAP is the 'B' team of Congress.
It quit Delhi government to ‘help’ Congress across the country with its campaign, he said days after Kejriwal had toured Gujarat and attacked his government's development claims. Kejriwal has also decided to take on Modi in Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency.
"This is a unique alliance between Congress and Congress-B. First run the government with Congress support and then resign to help Congress across the country with your campaign. It (AAP) also allowed Congress to run Delhi by back door through the Governor.
"Despite being routed in (Delhi Assembly) election, Congress is back to power through the Governor. This is the 'B' team of Congress. Its aim is to help Congress," Modi said.
The BJP's prime ministerial candidate also dismissed the Congress manifesto released on Wednesday as full of ‘lies’ and ‘misleading’ with promises which were made in previous elections too but not fulfilled.
Attacking Congress' manifesto, Modi alleged it is full of promises that had been made in 2004 and 2009 elections but could not be implemented.
"It looks like manifesto is a source of joke for them. It is misleading and parties which mislead the people should be thrown out of the politics once and for all," he said in the rally attended by BJP candidates from Delhi.
Modi also targeted Rahul Gandhi over Congress' decision to replace the party's candidate against him in Vadodara, who was elected through primaries, and said it was done because he was a Dalit.
At the release of the manifesto, Gandhi suggested the party's primary winning candidate Narendra Rawat had expressed his inability to face Modi and wanted the party to field a ‘heavyweight’.
Expressing confidence of forming the next government, Modi said political pundits and the common man are ‘unanimous’ on who is going to come to power.
He charged Congress has ‘betrayed’ Muslims who have given it ‘bagful’ of votes to bring it to power. The government has not spent a single penny on Muslim youths from a scheme the PM had announced for minorities, he said.
Modi also referred to unspent Nirbhaya fund, which was launched in the backdrop of the December 16 Delhi gang-rape case, to attack Congress.
"Time has come to push these cheats out of the country's politics," he said, urging people of Delhi to vote from ‘experience’ and elect BJP candidates in all the seven Lok Sabha constituencies in the national capital.
After Modi spoke, BJP leader VK Malhotra said a special bullet-proof enclosure was made for the party's prime ministerial candidate to address the gathering but he chose not to use it and spoke from where other speakers did. Mocking at the failure of Rahul Gandhi-promoted selection of Congress candidates through primaries, Modi said the 'shehzada' started primaries with much fanfare, saying it will change the system and conducted internal election to choose Congress candidate in 15 seats.
"Now the candidate who was elected has been changed", he said in an apparent reference to Congress replacing Narendra Rawait in Vadodara.
"Is being a Dalit a sin? Congress will have to answer it everywhere...," he said.
"There have been elections earlier also in which opposition parties would come together to defeat the government. But this is the first election in which alliances are being built to prevent Modi from coming to power," he said addressing a BJP meeting in East Delhi.
