Watch : Shri Narendra Modi addressing a Public Meeting in Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh
On Saturday 23rd November 2013 Shri Narendra Modi addressed large public meetings in Mandsaur and Ujjain and campaigned for the BJP in the 2013 MP Vidhan Sabha Elections. Shri Modi said the spirit in the coming elections is like the 1977 Lok Sabha elections, which were fought by the people despite a media that was gagged and a regime in Delhi that was anti-democratic. He affirmed, “I have been touring Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan for the last few days and I can see that the people are fighting these elections.” He told the people who gathered that they are not merely choosing who their MLA would be but they are choosing the future of the whole state.
Shri Modi took on the Congress for repeatedly betraying the people by leaving promises unfulfilled. He declared that the Congress is playing with the sentiments of the people and asked how can a Party that did not fulfill its old promises even think of making new ones. Shri Modi further pointed, “Whenever elections come Congress keeps taking name of the poor but they will do nothing because they know that if poverty goes, their chair will also go. They know that the moment people get educated their chairs will go and that is why for 4 generations the family is saying the same thing.”
He also questioned the culture of democracy that prevails in the Congress. Shri Modi asked what kind of democracy is it where the own MP of the Congress is locked, referring to the instance where the Mandsaur Lok Sabha MP was locked in a room by Congress supporters. Referring to a comment by a Congress General Secretary and Former MP CM towards the Mandsaur Lok Sabha MP, Shri Modi affirmed, “You have one leader who loves to be seen in the media. What words did he use for your MP. Can such words be used? The Member of Parliament may be from the Congress Party but it is important to show Shaleenta. They have no shame!”
Shri Modi lauded the work of the Madhya Pradesh Government under Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan and asked the people to compare his work in the last 5 years with that of the Congress ruled Rajasthan government under Ashok Gehlot.
