In anticipation of the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered a stirring address to a massive crowd in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. Amidst an outpouring of affection and respect, PM Modi unveiled a transparent vision for a Viksit Uttar Pradesh and a Viksit Bharat. The PM exposed the harsh realities of the Opposition’s trickery and their “loot system”.

Initiating his positively voluminous speech, PM Modi warned the audience that, “Some unnecessary force opposes India's growing power,” but at the same time the PM also assured that, “A defence corridor is being built here to manufacture deadly weapons for our army and for export. Arms brokers, who used to bribe Congress leaders, are furious. They don't want India's army to be Aatmanirbhar. They're united against Modi. We need the BJP-NDA government again to stop them.”

“While Modi focuses on uplifting the poor, the SP-Congress alliance is indulging in blatant appeasement. Congress's manifesto for the 2024 elections bears 100% imprint of the Muslim League, solely dedicated to strengthening their vote bank,” PM Modi remarked.

Addressing a crucial issue of the day, PM Modi shed light on the Opposition's deceitful tactics, remarking, “Congress, whether in Karnataka or Andhra Pradesh, has persistently pushed for religious-based reservation in its manifesto. Despite constitutional and judicial constraints, Congress is determined to pursue this agenda. Their strategy involves reallocating OBC quota to provide religious-based reservation, as seen in Karnataka where all Muslim castes were included in the OBC category by the Congress government.”

“In 2012, just before the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, the Congress government attempted to allocate a portion of OBC reservation to minorities based on religion but failed. Now, the people of UP, especially the OBC community, must recognize Congress and SP's dangerous game. They aim to take away the rights of OBC castes like Yadav, Kurmi, Maurya, Kushwaha, Jat-Gujjar, Rajbhar, Teli, and Pal, and give them to their preferred vote bank. The SP, for its own gains, is betraying the Yadavs and backward classes. This appeasement-driven mindset defines both the SP and Congress, who aim to surreptitiously redistribute OBC rights to their vote banks, before the arrival of Yogi ji, the slogan of the INDI Alliance here was – The land which is the government's, that land is ours,” the PM further added.

Launching his revolt against the Opposition parties, PM Modi observed that, “A new scheme by the Congress-INDI Alliance has emerged, and that is Congress Ki Loot…Jindagi Ke Sath Bhi, Jindagi Ke Baad Bhi! They claim they will investigate your belongings using the Congress prince's X-ray machine, seizing everything, including sisters' and daughters' jewellery, and distribute it among their vote banks. Not even the sisters' mangalsutras will be spared.”

With compelling facts and figures, PM Modi posed a critical question to the crowd: "The Congress-SP & INDI Alliance plans to impose a 55% tax on your inheritance. This means they'll seize a significant portion of what you leave for your children. If you built a 4-room house, only 2 rooms will go to your children, the rest seized by Congress-SP. Similarly, if you own 10 bighas of land, only 5 will be inherited by your children, the rest confiscated by Congress-SP. Are you ready to surrender your property to them?"

“Our commitment is clear: corrupt individuals will be investigated, and the money they've stolen from the poor will be returned to them. PM Modi is seeking legal advice on how to recover the looted money, including bungalows and vehicles seized from these corrupt individuals,” the PM established.

In his closing words, PM Modi humbly requested everyone in the crowd to spare a moment for their servant and bless the BJP with a resounding victory. He also urged the crowd to visit each home, conveying his heartfelt gratitude and best wishes.
