Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, while hitting out at the opposition for obstructing development works, said they keep their political interests above that of society and the country. The Prime Minister made the comments while virtually addressing a programme on the 10th death anniversary of former Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha member Harmohan Singh Yadav, NDTV reported.
“Many times, the opposition parties put some obstacles in the government’s work as they could not implement the decisions taken by them when they were in power,” PM Modi said.
“Now, if they (decisions) are implemented, they oppose it. People of the country don’t like it,” PM Modi said, while stressing that in recent times a trend of keeping “ideology or political interests above the interests of society and the country” is being witnessed.
Referring to the swearing-in of Droupadi Murmu as President of the country, the Prime Minister said: “For the first time after the Independence, a woman from tribal society is going to lead the country.”
