On September 01st, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a massive Parivartan Rally in Bihar’s Bhagalpur district. Huge crowds gathered at the venue, to listen to the Prime Minister. “This is my fourth NDA rally but I can say that this rally has broken records of the all previous rallies”, said Shri Modi requesting the crowd to climb down the poles.
The people of Bihar have decided to vote for development, said PM Modi. He said that the political experts could well gauge which way the wind has been blowing. He said that no one could stop this ‘Vijay Yatra’ or victory march in Bihar.
Taking a dig at other parties, the PM noted, “The governments which have been ruling Bihar for over 25 years should give a report of their work but instead of doing so they keep asking Modi for answers.” He alleged that all other parties united to spread lies and betray people of Bihar on the grounds of communalism and casteism.
The current government in Bihar, the Prime Minister said, was not ready to give a single account of their work. He appealed to the people of Bihar to question those in power who promised to provide electricity but failed to deliver.
Prime Minister Modi hitting back at JDU, RJD and Congress in Bihar said that it was a ‘tilanjali rally’ that was organised two days back. The whole nation, Shri Modi said, was disappointed as there were no discussions to take Bihar forward and ideals of Jayaprakash Narayan and Lohia were discarded. “It was the Congress Party that imprisoned JP for protesting against corruption. He was subjected to ill-treatment in prison. He could not recover from this”, the PM added further.
Shri Narendra Modi also noted that when he announced a special package of Rs. 1.65 lakh crore in Arrah, he was mocked for the same. “They made fun of our Government, but people were not amused. They realized that if they continue to criticize the package, people of Bihar would turn away from them”, said Shri Modi.
Shri Modi took note of the fact that Bihar has longed for a pro-farmer government, a government that would provide employment and a government that would work towards development of the state. He exhorted to the people of Bihar to elect a stable and development focussed NDA Government in the upcoming elections to change the fortune of Bihar.
Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Shri Ravishankar Prasad, Minister of Agriculture, Shri Radha Mohan Singh, Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Shri Ram Vilas Paswan, MoS for Skill Development, Shri Rajiv Pratap Rudy and other BJP leaders attended the rally.
