Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday addressed an election rally in Lakhimpur Kheri district of Lucknow and launched a direct attack on Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav.
The ongoing UP elections have witnessed a lot of political activity in form of rallies, roadshows to woo the voters.
Modi's speech in Lakhimpur Kheri: As it hapened
#Why should youngsters from UP leave their villages and face discomfort in cities? I want youth of UP to get work in their areas only?
#Why are so many villages in UP lacking access to electricity? The previous governments did no work in this direction.
#Is it true that in UP if an officer wants to be DM, he or she has to pay money. Amounts have to be paid for transfers and postings also.
#The Government here is more familiar with 'Karnama' and not 'Kaam.
#Due to your anti-farmer nature, insurance cover in UP stands at a low. And even in that there is discrimination.
#The crop insurance scheme of the Central Government is a comprehensive one and caters to the welfare of the farmers.
#A scam that you promised to look into from the tenure of Mayawati Ji was not done. Can CM answer why was it not probed.
#Every farmer of UP is saying - we need our dues. When will justice be done to us.
#Wherever people of UP go, their hard work has enriched those places. Sadly, the politics of SP, Congress & BSP is impacting the state.
#People are in jails but they operate their gangs from the jail and these gangs are killing people, indulging in rape, kidnapping, riots
#You say 'Kaam Bolta Hai' but projects are incomplete. What is speaking volumes is the instances of women harassment in the state.
#In the midst of the campaign, fearing losses they released a 3rd Ghoshna Patra & started deviating from the core issues.
#By allying with the Congress, the SP and the CM have insulted Dr. Lohia, who resisted the Congress.
#People thought CM is young & will do well but in 2014 people showed their anger & thereafter CM focussed on his own survival & alliances.
#These parties, SP, Congress and BSP have failed in the previous exams. They have not lived up to their expectations in serving people.
#UP has seen Governments of INC, SP & BSP. Have these parties brought any change in your lives? Did they work for farmers.
Rahul Gandhi also is also slated to address an election rally in Kheri district today.
