Watch : Shri Narendra Modi addressing a massive Public Meeting in Raipur, Chhattisgarh

The BJP’s PM candidate Shri Narendra Modi spent the entire day in Chhattisgarh addressing 5 massive public meetings in various parts of the state. Shri Modi spoke at Bemetara, Kawardha, Kurud, Durg and Raipur. Shri Modi urged the people of Chhattisgarh to give the BJP another chance to serve them and lauded the work of the Chhattisgarh government under Dr. Raman Singh. He even lauded Dr. Raman Singh’s leadership, saying that he has developed Chhattisgarh in the face of several adversities. Shri Modi categorically stated that no Mantra except development can work and that the time has come to bid goodbye to votebank politics and embrace politics of development. He said that the Congress has changed its Naam, Nishan and Naara but not Niyat.

Shri Modi question the Congress party on their inability to name their Chief Ministerial candidate and asked why they are scared to do so. He said, “Should the Congress not declare their CM candidate? If you do a sting operation then Congressmen in private will take the name of Ajit Jogi but then why is it hidden? Are they scared to lose the election if he is declared? What is being hidden and why this backdoor entry?” Shri Modi continued, “Our party is very clear that Dr. Raman Singh will be the Chief Minister. Has the Congress declared their candidate? Hide it as much as you want but the people of Chhattisgarh know you very well now.”

Sharpening the attack on the Congress, Shri Modi came down heavily on the Congress leaders who have been coming here and saying that Centre is giving so much money to the state. He avowed that this is nothing but an insult to the people of Chhattisgarh. “Are the people of Chhattisgarh standing with a begging bowl? You are not the Maliks (rulers) and this arrogance of yours will never be accepted by the people,” declared Shri Modi.

Giving a fitting answer to the deplorable remarks made by an SP leader about Shri Modi’s background, he said that such statements do not reflect anything about Modi but it speaks about the mentality of the leaders who made the statement. Shri Modi said, “Those who are born in rich homes and are enjoying their lives are mocking the poor of this country and that is why such language is used. In this country, even a person who polished shoes can become a Bhagya Vidhata of the nation and I never hid anything. Yes, in my childhood I used to sell tea in trains to fill my stomach. We never picked pockets but they are making fun of this.”

Shri Modi also expressed his displeasure at the manner in which noted Bollywood singer and Bharat Ratna awardee Lata Mangeshkar ji was targeted by the Congress simply because she praised Shri Modi. He noted that those who criticize him are given Padma Shris and other awards but those who praise him are targeted. He questioned whether this is democratic by any means.

He did not spare the Congress on their grand promises to the people of Chhattisgarh and asked them to first fulfill them in the states they have been ruling for so many years. He asked the Congress not to mislead the people of Chhattisgarh with promises they have never been able to fulfill in their own states. Slamming the Congress for corruption, he said that Mrs. Sonia Gandhi should speak on corruption and snatching away the land of the poor in the presence of Mr. Ashok Khemka and talk about it in Gurgaon, Jaipur, Jodhpur instead of telling the Chhattisgarh government.

Shri Modi said, “There are Congress governments in Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi. Do they give free rice anywhere there? No, then why are they misleading the people of Chhattisgarh? Is there even one Congress government that is giving 24 hour power, including in Delhi where PM and Madam Sonia live? Either give 24 hours power in your states or stop misleading the people of Chhattisgarh.” He went on to say that if there is a state giving 24-hour power to the people, it is Gujarat. He even questioned the Congress on their promise to bring down prices in 100 days when the opposite happened.

Referring to the misuse of Central institutions by the Congress led UPA government, Shri Modi affirmed that the Government at the Centre is not surviving because the Congress has a majority but because of the CBI, which sometimes goes to SP leaders’ home, sometimes to BSP leaders’ home and sometimes to DMK leaders’ home. Shri Modi declared, “Congress thought that CBI is a medicine to cure everything including Modi so they tried to give a dose to Modi. They thought Modi will shiver due to CBI but I am born in the land of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel. We do not bend in front of lies and we always fight for the truth. None of your antics will work.”

The BJP’s PM candidate pointed that the Congress leaders come without doing their proper homework and shared that from the PM to the Finance Minister, even Congress leaders have praised the development work of Dr. Raman Singh. He continued that instead of criticizing Dr. Raman Singh, the Congress leaders should tell the people what they would do for the state. He termed the Congress as a Party that mocks the poor and for whom the poor are merely a vote nothing else.

Shri Modi lauded Dr. Raman Singh for taking the state ahead despite obstacles. He complimented Dr. Raman Singh for tackling the Maoist problem and said that the Congress lacks the courage to fight the Maoists and do backdoor deals with them while Dr. Raman Singh stands like a mountain in front of them. He stated that the Congress does not want good to happen in Chhattisgarh only because they feel they can form the next government if no good happens.

Shri Modi expressed confidence that the 10 tough years in Delhi under the UPA are ending and in 2014 the Government in Delhi will change and a NDA government will come to power. Shri Modi affirmed that the Congress is so scared of losing that they want to hide everything, including their CM candidate and things like opinion polls.

All of Shri Modi’s public meetings where very well attended by people of all sections of society. Several local BJP leaders spoke at the various meetings and lauded the leadership of Shri Modi and expressed their desire to see him as the next Prime Minister of India.
