On the evening of 17th April 2014 Shri Narendra Modi addressed people across India during the 3rd round of Bharat Vijay Rallies. Lakhs of people across 13 states attended the rallies in the various venues to hear Shri Modi. Appealing to the youth of India, Shri Modi said that the 2014 Lok Sabha elections are not only about who will form the Government but also about their own future. He added that even if a week is wasted in the lives of our youngsters it is considered a waste. Giving a befitting answer to the immature comments by the Congress Vice President, Shri Modi affirmed, “Shahzada can be busy with his balloons and toffees but the nation wants mature politics and a government that can win as many trophies for their good work.” Expressing joy over the high turnout in the voting held across India so far, Shri Modi stated, “After today’s phase a large section of India has already voted and people have voted in large numbers braving the scorching heat. First time voters and women voters are showing immense enthusiasm. All this voting shows Congress’ departure is certain. The focus is now on a strong government.”
Shri Modi also took the opportunity to give a strong reply to the UPA Chairperson for her statements while making a television appeal to the people of India, where she talked about BJP disrespecting institutions. Asking the UPA Chairperson to introspect and look at her own Party, Shri Modi reminded that it was the Congress that imposed the Emergency and curtailed freedom of speech and expression. Similarly, he recounted the instances of UPA misusing CBI and creating tension between IB and CBI. On the appointment of CVC, he recalled that it was Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha and BJP leader who raised several valid objections but despite that the UPA did not listen and it was the Courts that finally had to intervene. “Sonia ji, you have nothing left to tell the people that is why you are saying all this,” Shri Modi pointed.
Shri Modi even talked about the NDA’s priority to endure that people of India get clean drinking water. He wondered why the Congress and its leaders, who take pride in giving several acts to the people have not been able to provide clean drinking water to the people despite being in power for so many years. “Be it waster water treatment, rain water harvesting and micro irrigation, we will have to actively look at these methods,” opined Shri Modi.
During his speech Shri Modi made a strong appeal to the people of India to bless the NDA with over 300 seats so that the nation gets a strong government that has the space to clear the deep mess left behind by 10 years of UPA misrule.
