Need more than 400 Lok Sabha seats to prevent Congress from putting ‘Babri lock’ on Ram temple, says PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), led by his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), needs more than 400 Lok Sabha seats in order to prevent the Congress from putting the “Babri lock” on the Ram temple in Ayodhya or reinstalling Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.

The statement was made in a public rally during the election campaign in Madhya Pradesh’s Khargone and Dhar districts and Maharashtra.

“Don’t they know that from 2019 to 2024 the NDA [National Democratic Alliance] already had the support of around 400 seats? Modi needs 400 seats so the Congress cannot bring back Article 370 in Kashmir and create trouble. Modi needs 400 seats so the Congress cannot put the Babri lock on the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya,” Modi said addressing the crowd.

He also claimed that if the Congress came to power in the Lok Sabha election, it would repeal the Citizenship Amendment Act and decriminalise triple talaq.

Modi alleged that the Congress has declared “vote jihad” against him by calling on Muslims to unite and vote against the BJP.

“Think about the level to which the Congress has stooped due to disappointment and despair,” he said. “Is ‘vote jihad’ acceptable to you? Can this be allowed in a democracy? Does the Constitution of India permit this kind of jihad?”

All these add to the long list of anti-Muslim hate speeches made by Modi during the current election season.

Earlier, Modi had claimed that the Congress would cancel reservations meant for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes and give them all to the Muslim community.
