"People will do their duty in the elections but I can say that Kanpur has won me over: Narendra Modi"
"From Kanpur the clarion call of a Congress Mukt Bharat must come: Narendra Modi"
"People must defeat the Congress and their allies who have helped Congress to hide their own misdeeds: Narendra Modi"
"Those born with golden spoons, what do they know what poverty is? To see poverty they go with cameras to see huts: Narendra Modi"

Shri Narendra Modi addressed his first public meeting in Uttar Pradesh since he was declared as the BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate. Shri Modi spoke at a large public meeting in Kanpur where he called on the people of UP to defeat the Congress party and the Congress’ allies who have been helping the Congress to hide their own misdeeds. Modi ji affirmed that these allies of the Congress party say something else and do something else in Parliament. “From Kanpur the clarion call of a Congress Mukt Bharat must come,” Modi ji affirmed.

Modi ji attacked the anti-people policies of the Congress party. He asked the people whether the Congress promised to bring prices down in 100 days of getting elected and further asked if prices came down as promised by the Congress. “See what they have done today. The stove is not lighting in the homes of the poor. Price rise is troubling the poor but sadder than that is- has the PM ever said anything on being able to stop rising prices? Has Madam Sonia or their Prince said anything about it? Their arrogance is so high,” Modi ji declared. He attacked the rampant corruption under the UPA even taking note of the recent statements by a former Government official that if he is guilty in the coal scam, the Prime Minister must also be an accused.

Narendra Modi said that for the Congress, the poor and the farmers of the country have become a joke. He stated, “The Congress prince says there is nothing like poverty- it is a state of mind. Those born with golden spoons, what do they know what poverty is? To see poverty they go with cameras to see huts. We have been born in poverty, we have lived in poverty. We experienced the pain of the poor. And when someone makes such jokes on the poor, it is very sad. Salt is being put on their wounds.” Modi ji affirmed that the Government must be for the poor, the welfare of the poor but the governments should not bein the pockets of the poor.

Talking about the Congress he also said, “When the Congress is in trouble they catch on to one thing and that is development politics” adding that the Congress has divided people, castes, parties etc.

During his speech Shri Modi also attacked the misgovernance in Uttar Pradesh under the Samajwadi Party Government. He said that in the last one year so many innocent people have lost their lives but the state Government is engaged in votebank politics only. Modi ji also shared that the Uttar Pradesh government is busy releasing people who face serious charges from jail. “Should the law not take its own course? Should we sacrifice our security for votebank politics?” the BJP’s PM candidate asked. Shri Modi categorically stated that the unholy trinity of the Congress, SP and BSP has brought bad name to the Congress and they must be wiped out from UP.

Shri Modi noted that the elections are for the Lok Sabha but instead of giving answers on what they have done, the Congress is only talking of Gujarat. Modi ji asked, “Are these elections in Gujarat? Gujarat voted in 2012 and the people passed us with distinction.”

Lakhs of people came to hear Shri Modi at the public meeting. Shri Modi said, “I can say that Kanpur has won me over.”

BJP National President Shri Rajnath Singh delivered a strong speech where he expressed confidence that the BJP will form the Government and Shri Narendra Modi will be the Prime Minister. He said that Gujarat has made a mark in good governance. Shri Rajnath Singh also said that now that the SP and BSP have got a clean chit, they should withdraw support from the Congress.
