"The Congress has always cared only for their vote bank. They care for nothing else. For example, we (BJP) are putting an end to triple talaq, because for us the Constitution is prime. It allows equal rights for all individuals, all women. So we, the BJP, do not want the oppression of women of any religion, or caste. But Congress, they have always been and are against things like triple talaq, because they do not want to upset their "vote bank", those who keep the 'family' in power," PM Modi said.
 
"While Congress tries to create doubt, insecurity and fear in the minds of people, we (BJP) always try to keep the faith, build trust and belief in the minds and hearts of people," he added.

Congress only focuses on creating the "fear of unknown": PM Modi

We are a big nation with a massive population, and such fear psychosis does have an impact on the people," PM Modi said.

"Fear, doubt and insecurity is what is spread by them (Congress), because it benefits them in keeping the "family" rule over the people," he said.
