Addressing massive rallies in Bihar on the afternoon of 30th April, Shri Narendra Modi urged the people to vote for the BJP and ensure the formation of a strong and stable government at the Centre which focused on the empowerment of all.
Acknowledging the large presence of supporters at the rallies in Ujiyarpur, Shivhar, Chhapra and Hajipur, Shri Modi said that this reflected the awareness among people regarding the power of their vote. He reiterated the democratic spirit present in every citizen, and said, “Those who only see India as a land of illiterate and uneducated people I tell those people- democracy is in our veins.”
Recalling the contribution of former CM of Bihar Late Karpoori Thakur, Shri Modi called him as the ‘messiah for the marginalized sections of the society’ and urged the people to vote for the Lotus and enable the BJP to fulfill the dreams of Karpoori Thakur, whereby the poor and the marginalized can live a life of dignity.
He also recalled his visit to Bihar in October 2013 and stated how, despite the bomb blasts then near his rally, he was left unscathed. “It was the blessings of Lord Krishna that a son who travelled from Dwarka was saved that day. That day the love that Bihar gave me I said it time and again Bihar has won me over,” said Shri Modi.
Highlighting the Congress’ inconsideration for the people who voted it to power, Shri Modi spoke of how they looked down upon the poor. “When those born with golden spoons talk of poverty, it is deeply painful. What do these people know about poverty,” said Shri Modi, even as he recalled his childhood days spent in poverty and stated how his struggles then had reaffirmed his resolve to serve the poor and the oppressed. He recalled how the country had prospered under the rule of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee and spoke of the misrule it witnessed thereafter under the UPA.
Shri Modi also spoke of the Congress’ double standards whereby they were reluctant to reveal their association with Shri Lalu Prasad Yadav. “Did the Mother-Son not help Lalu ji to be released from jail? They did but why cannot they share stage with him at a rally,” said Shri Modi. He further stated how the Prime Minister of India had refused to accept the ‘Modi wave’, and said that this answer was expected of him, since if he could not see corruption, price rise and unemployment in the past years, then how could he see the ‘Modi wave’.

Shri Modi affirmed that the results of the Elections will prove wrong all the mathematical calculations of the political pundits. He urged the youth, especially those in the age-group of 18 to 28 years, to come forward and caste their vote for the formation of a strong and stable government in Delhi. “For you I am neither the PM or CM. Our bond is a bond of affection and I am your sevak. It is the people of Bihar who will give us a resounding win come 16th May,” said Shri Modi.
Former Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan was present during the rally at Hajipur, and spoke of how the focus was on winning all 40 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar. “We will form the government in Delhi and then we will form the government in Bihar, where elections are going to be held,” said Shri Ram Vilas Paswan.
Shri Nand Kishore Yadav was also present at the rally in Hajipur.
