PM Modi’s chair shaking, he has started attacking his own friends: Cong

NEW DELHI, 8 May:  Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s chair is “shaking” after three phases of the Lok Sabha polls as he has started attacking his own “friends” and this shows the “real trend” of the result.

His remarks came after the prime minister during an election rally in Telangana said the Congress should explain to people why it has stopped raising the “Ambani-Adani” issue as its “Shehzada” used to do for the past five years and asked if it has struck a “deal.”

“The times are changing. Friends are no longer friends…! After the completion of three phases of elections, today the prime minister has started attacking his own friends. It is becoming clear that Modiji’s chair is shaking. This is the real trend of the results,” Kharge said in a post in Hindi on X.

At a poll rally in Telangana’s Vemulavada, Modi said, “Ever since elections have been announced, these people (Congress) have stopped abusing Ambani-Adani. I want to ask from Telangana soil, let the Shehzada announce, how much has been lifted from Ambani-Adani. Has tempo loads of notes (currency) reached the Congress? What deal has been arrived at, that abusing Ambani-Adani has stopped overnight.”

“Certainly something is fishy. For five years, (they) abused Adani-Ambani and it stopped overnight. It means you have received some tempo loads of ‘chori ka maal’ (loot). You have to answer the nation,” the prime minister further said.
