The campaigning in Jharkhand has gained momentum as Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed a mega rally in Dumka today.

But we understand your problems and work towards solving them.”
Hitting out at the opposition parties, he said, “The ones whom people of Jharkhand had trusted just worked for their own good. Those people had to be punished by you, but they are still not reformed. They have just been filling their treasury.”
Talking about the Citizenship Amendment Act, PM Modi said that to give respect to the minority communities from Pakistan, Afghanistan, & Bangladesh, who fled to India & were forced to live as refugees, both houses of parliament passed the Citizenship Amendment bill. “Congress and their allies are creating a ruckus. They are doing arson because they did not get their way. Those who are creating violence can be identified by their clothes itself. The work that has been done on Pakistan's money is now being done by Congress,” he said.
The Prime Minister outlined the progress and development successes of the Jharkhand. He said, “Before 2014, the Chief Minister of the state used to claim the construction of 30-35 thousand houses and described it as their achievement. But now we are moving forward with the resolve that every poor person in the country should have their own house.”
