At Champaran, Modi lashes out at opposition parties

Motihari : Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticised his rivals on Tuesday for using “divisive politics” out of their frustration at his National Democratic Alliance’s “pro-poor policies”.
Addressing an assembly of volunteers of the Swachh Bharat Mission, Modi said: “They are having problems with our efforts to improve the lot of the poor and weaker sections of society”.
This was Modi’s first public meeting after a stormy Budget Session, the second half of which was washed out due to protests by opposition parties, and even allies like the Shiv Sena, on several issues, among them the PNB banking scam and demands for special status to Andhra Pradesh.
The meeting also comes in the back of seemingly growing Dalit disaffection, fallout of which was a bloody violence witnessed in some parts of the country on April 2.
