Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday accused the Opposition of obstructing development works, saying they keep their political interests above that of society and the country.
“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 addressing virtually a programme on the 10th death anniversary of former Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha member Harmohan Singh Yadav.
“Now, if they (decisions) are implemented, they oppose it. People of the country don’t like it,” he added, stressing in recent times, a trend of keeping “ideology or political interests above the interests of society and the country” is being witnessed.
Drawing attention to the swearing-in of Droupadi Murmu as the country’s new President, PM Modi said, “For the first time after the Independence, a woman from tribal society is going to lead the country.”
Honouring former Rajya Sabha MP and Samajwadi Party member Harmohan Singh Yadav on his death anniversary, PM Modi said: “When the country’s democracy was crushed during the Emergency, all the major parties came together and fought to save the Constitution. Chaudhary Harmohan Singh Yadav Ji was also a fighting soldier of that struggle.”
The Prime Minister also said, “Today is a very big day for our democracy as the new President has been sworn in.” He said that the first time after India’s independence, a woman from tribal community is going to lead the country.
Harmohan Singh Yadav was a towering figure and leader of the Yadav community. He remained active in politics for a long time and served in various capacities as MLC, MLA, member of Rajya Sabha and chairman of ‘Akhil Bhartiya Yadav Mahasabha’.
Harmohan Singh Yadav was also instrumental in establishing many educational institutions in and around Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh with the help of his son Sukhram Singh. Harmohan Singh Yadav was awarded Shaurya Chakra in 1991 for display of valour in protecting the lives of several Sikhs during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
