Modi speaks about grand alliance against BJP

Taking a dig at opposition parties for their efforts to form a grand alliance against his party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the BJP is here to serve the country whereas on the other side there are ”opportunistic alliance, dynastic parties”. ”They want to build their own empire but we want to empower people,” he said. The alliance against the BJP is a ‘short-term’ one being done for the benefits of the respective parties, he said.

”Unlike other parties, we are not in politics to divide and rule and for building vote-bank. We are here to serve the country in every way,” he said during an interaction with booth-level BJP workers from five parliamentary constituencies in Tamilnadu. ”The upcoming polls are important for the BJP and the country to further our development agenda,” he said.
