We need to earn the trust of minorities: PM Modi tells NDA leaders
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his acceptance speech of being named as leader of the BJP-led NDA, said that they must focus on ending the 'imaginary fear' among the minorities that the party will do nothing for them. “We have to win their trust,” PM Modi said.
“Minorities have been made to live in fear by those who believe in vote-bank politics… We have to end this deception and take everyone along,” PM Modi said in a 75-minute speech at Parliament’s central hall where he was elected leader of the NDA.
This happens to be the first time when PM Narendra Modi has accepted that there is perceived gap between the minorities and the party.
He also tweaked his tag line – Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas – to ensure he is working on getting the trust of all.
“Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and now, Sabka Vishwas is our mantra,” PM Modi said in his speech.
PM Modi described the 2019 elections that had united people and society unlike other elections that often divide and create gulf.
“The 2019 polls have ensured unity among all social groups. This election has broken down walls. There was a strong pro-incumbency wave all over the country and pro-incumbency is always linked to trust in the existing government. This election was one which indicated only positive votes,” he said.
