Modi: Cong struggling to get 50 seats By Indian Times Daily

Taking on the Congress over its overseas unit chief’s controversial remarks regarding the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the party was struggling to win 50 seats because “the Congress leaders are confused and their thinking is diffused".

Addressing a rally in support of SAD candidate Harsimrat Kaur Badal here, he said Sam Pitroda’s “hua toh hua” remark reflects the arrogance of the Congress, while accusing it of rewarding its leaders, “facing serious charges in the 1984 riots”, with plum ministerial and party posts.

“The Congress had once appointed a leader as the party’s Punjab affairs incharge, but had to backtrack after the people in Punjab resented the move for his alleged involvement in 1984 riots. However, the same leader was appointed as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh a few months back.”

Accusing the Congress of resorting to a dilly-dallying approach to deny closure to the victims, he said he had already sent one of the guilty to the gallows while others have got the life term.
