Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday addressed an election rally in Jalaun's Orai amid the ongoing assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. Attacking the Samajwadi Party government, he said they have been looting the people of UP and have done injustice to them.
Here are the highlights:
#Why Bundelkhand region in Uttar Pradesh doesn't prosper while the region in Madhya Pradesh is touching skies of progress
#The farmers of Bundelkhand are the worst hit today, as soon as BJP forms govt, the loan of farmers will be waived off
#Rajiv Gandhi inaugurated glass factory in Chitrakoot, it's been 30 years neither factory is there nor is employment. Will you trust such ppl?
#In 1988, then PM Rajiv Gandhi laid foundation stone of a glass factory. But why the factory is not yet operational
#We revived the quake-hit Kutch
#After BJP forms govt in UP, a special cell will be formed against those involved in illegal activities and they will be sent behind bars
#We have brought down stent prices considerably. This benefits the poor
#The govt should be for the poor, but UP govt is for those who loot
#UP's fate will change when BJP will form government in the state
#We will use the satellites launched by our scientists to stop illegal mining
#A squad will be formed to stop illegal mining
#BJP's engine is required to save Bundelkhand
#Our aim is proper irrigation facilities for farmers, quality education for children, employment for youth & medication for elderly
#Earlier there used to black marketing of urea. We neem coated urea & now it benefits only farmers
#Farmers of Uttar Pradesh face so many hurdles. We will ensure all their troubles end and they prosper
#It is due to the blessings of people of Uttar Pradesh that I became the Prime Minister of India
#Governments are for welfare of poor. But in UP things seem different. Law & order situation in UP is a disaster. This has to change
#If they (SP and Congress) are not interested in the development of UP, in educating the youth then how will UP progress
#SP govt has looted the people of Uttar Pradesh, has done injustice to them
#Illegal mining in the region should stop. Why should resources be looted like this
#Leaders who amass wealth for themselves can't be expected to care for others and do good for people
#SP and Congress should be defeated from Bundelkhand. They have been taking this region for granted for a very long time
#If the BJP forms the Government, there will be a different Bundelkhand Vikas Board directly monitored by the Chief Minister's Office
#Why is the situation in Bundelkhand bad? This land has wonderful people who are talented. Sadly, the region did not get much attention
On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked Akhilesh Yadav during an election rally in Fatehpur. He accused the SP government of playing the politics of religion and caste discrimination.
The Prime Minister said, “If a village has a graveyard it should also have a cremation ground. If there’s electricity on Ramzan, it should also be there on Diwali. There must be bijli(power) both on Eid and Holi... There should be no discrimination”.
His Eid statement sparked controversy with Samajwadi Party spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary saying PM Modi has been befooling public and playing vote bank politics. Chaudhary also went a step ahead as he called PM Modi and Amit Shah ‘Terrorists’.
