In the run-up to the Delhi assembly elections, PM Narendra Modi addressed a public meeting in Dwarka today. Speaking at a huge rally, PM Narendra Modi said that people of Delhi are in favour of the BJP. He said that the opposition parties are having sleepless nights.

“The upcoming Delhi elections are the first elections of this decade. This decade will belong to India. India's development will depend on the decisions taken today,” he added furthermore.

Taking a dig at the AAP government, PM Narendra Modi said, “Political differences are a common thing among parties, but is it fine to block the development work for the poor due to these differences? But this is what we are witnessing in Delhi today.”

PM Narendra Modi alleged that the AAP government was stalling Central government schemes in Delhi. Referring to the non-implementation of the Ayushman Bharat scheme, he said, "suppose a person who goes to Hyderabad for work, needs to be admitted to a hospital for some reason. Will this Mohalla Clinic go there?" He asked, “why are the people of Delhi deprived of benefits of Central government's schemes for housing and health.”

The PM said that Delhi could not be developed with politics of vote bank, hate; one should have intention of serving poor and take tough decisions to work for development. Accusing the AAP, PM Modi asserted, “People in Delhi government raised questions over surgical strike and Balakot air strikes by our forces. I have full faith in people of Delhi that they will give reply to such people.”

“For the last five years, the way the central government has been working is unprecedented; since Independence, this has never happened. The number of bank accounts opened for the poor has outnumbered the population of the US; Ayushman Bharat scheme benefited the number of people that outnumbers the combined population of Mexico, Canada and the US,” PM Modi remarked.

PM Modi said that over 1700 illegal colonies have been regularised. How can Delhi forget the subject of right to homes to 40 lakh people? Without taking the name of AAP, he said that those in power in the national capital, "were trying to somehow avoid this matter for another two years".

In Dwarka, Prime Minister Modi raised the issue of the amended Citizenship law and said, "Delhi needs a government that will stand by the Central government on major decisions like CAA. You must punish those who insult our forces. The Delhi government is spreading lies on the issue and the Opposition is provoking the people against the CAA."

Highlighting the commitments fulfilled by his government, the PM said that our government had started a scheme to provide monthly pension of Rs 3,000 for senior citizens and also, our government had completed Eastern and Western Peripheral Expressway work, which was stuck for years. “We are trying to introduce 'One Nation, One Ration Card' scheme to ensure that people who migrate to other states for work are not deprived of benefits,” he added furthermore.

Calling for high voter turnout, PM Modi requested citizens of Delhi to come out and vote in large numbers on February 8, 2020.
