Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that the opposition’s continued indiscriminate attack and acute frustration and negativity towards the saffron camp have become his “political ideology”.

Campaigning in Varanasi ahead of last and seventh phase of assembly polls, Modi said people don’t want ‘parivaarwadis’ (dynasts) in Uttar Pradesh and BJP led by Yogi Adityanath will easily get to power in the state.

“Over the past two years, free rations have been made available to more than 80 million poor, Dalit, backward, tribal people. The whole world is amazed. But I am happy that the poor are happy,” Modi added.

Speaking about the Russian invasion in Ukraine, Modi accused the opposition of prioritizing its “political interests” during such challenges. “If the Indian security forces and people are fighting a crisis, they do everything to make the situation more critical. We have seen it during the pandemic and now, during the Ukraine crisis.

In a congressional sweep, he said the party that for years had been successful in politics from “khadi” is now hesitant to even take his name. Modi added that his government had created international brands of “khadi” and yoga.

Varanasi will vote in the final phase of Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections on March 7.

The seat of Varanasi Lok Sabha comprises five Rohaniya Assembly constituencies, Varanasi North, Varanasi South, Varanasi Cantt. and Sevapuri. The counting of votes will take place on March 10.
