Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed two rallies in Bihar’s Jehanabad and Bhabua. Seeing the huge gathering during both campaigns, the Prime Minister said that it was very much clear that in which direction the wind was blowing. People of Bihar, he said, have decided to bid farewell to the ‘big and small brothers’ who have ruined Bihar. The PM also appreciated the Election Commission for the arrangements made in Bihar for polling day.
Taking a dig at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, PM Modi said, “Till BJP was a part of Government in Bihar, there was no corruption but moment the CM found a new friend, who is known for all this, see what happened.” Shri Narendra Modi also hit out at RJD and Lalu Prasad Yadav. He said that such parties always wanted the state to remain in darkness and hence their lantern ruled the state.
Terming the JD (U)-RJD-Congress alliance as ‘Mahaswarthbandan’, Shri Narendra Modi said that for the last sixty years they ruled Bihar but never thought about the state’s development and taking it forward. He alleged that the ‘Mahaswarthbandan’ had only one job to do i.e., divide the state on the grounds of caste and vote bank politics. “All NDA leaders talk about development but what others speak is- we want to destroy Modi”, the PM said further.
Launching attack on the JD (U)-RJD-Congress alliance, the PM said, that democracy was about fulfilling the aspirations of people rather than finishing anyone. Shri Narendra Modi noted how other parties tried to restrict his rallies and the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio show but were unsuccessful in their efforts. “When I shared my Mann Ki Baat, delegations went to get it stopped. They said Mann Ki Baat touches people's hearts and that is why stop it. But it is because of your blessings that I have got the permission to speak here”, the PM said further.
The Prime Minister also highlighted various policies and steps taken by the Government at Centre for the development of Bihar. Noting the fact that In India, about 18,000 villages don't have electricity of which 4,000 were in Bihar alone, Shri Modi expressed deep concern over the situation and said that only NDA Government would fulfill aspirations of people in the state. Shri Modi also stressed on the need of promoting small scale industries to promote development in the state. He highlighted the benefits of ‘MUDRA Bank’ that was transforming the lives of poor at the grassroot level.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged people to turn out in large numbers and vote for a BJP led NDA Government for development of the state. Several party leaders were present during both the rallies.
