PM Modi attracts a huge crowd at the Basti rally in UP

Today, India's stature and respect on the global stage have significantly increased: PM Modi in Basti
Every vote cast for SP or Congress will be wasted: PM Modi targets Opposition while addressing a rally in Basti

Ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections, PM Modi marked his special presence in Basti, UP, and vowed to continue his fight against the opposition. He emphasized his unwavering vision for a ‘Viksit Uttar Pradesh’. The PM urged citizens to actively participate in the democratic process for the betterment of the nation.

Initiating his speech, PM Modi dwelt on the significance of the ongoing elections and remarked, “Five phases of elections have solidified the path for the Modi government’s third term. Now, every vote cast for SP or Congress will be wasted, as they won't form the government. Your vote should go to the party that will lead the country. Modi's government is the one to support for a Viksit and Atmanirbhar Bharat.”

Highlighting India's growing influence, PM Modi made the crowd aware with pride, “Today, India's stature and respect on the global stage have significantly increased. When India speaks, the world listens; when India decides, the world follows. The nation that once harboured terrorists and threatened us now finds itself in a dire situation, struggling even for food grains.”

With conviction in his voice, PM Modi established India’s strong stance under his leadership and mentioned that “Pakistan is devastated, yet its sympathizers in the SP and Congress try to scare India, saying we should fear Pakistan's atom bomb. Why should India be afraid? Today, there is no weak Congress government but a strong Modi government.” He further challenged that, ‘Bharat Aaj Ghar Mein Ghus Kar Maarta Hai’!”

PM Modi explicitly took a dig at the opposition, making their unrealistic expectations and past failures prominent, “I am surprised by the repeated release of flop films starring the ‘Shehzadas’ of SP and Congress. Now, these two are spreading rumours together, claiming they will win 79 seats in UP. This is nothing but daydreaming. On June 4, the people of UP will wake them up from their slumber, and then they'll surely blame the EVMs.”

PM Modi also exposed the true colours of the INDI Alliance, criticizing their blatant appeasement tactics and disregard for the nation's heritage. “Our country waited 500 years for the Ram temple, but these INDI leaders have a problem with the Ram Mandir and Lord Ram himself. Senior SP leaders dismiss the Ram temple as useless and label its devotees as hypocrites. Another INDI leader even called the Ram temple unholy. They openly speak of destroying Sanatan Dharma, led by Congress. The “Shehzada” of Congress aim to overturn the Supreme Court's decision on the Ram temple,” he added.

The PM called out the Congress and SP for their sudden pretence of upholding the Constitution, reminding the audience of their historical hypocrisy and ongoing attempts to undermine its principles, “This is the same Congress that tried to abolish it by imposing an emergency and the same SP that always opposed reservations for Dalits. Now, they go against the Constitution's spirit, advocating for reservations based on religion. They are taking away reservations from Dalits and backward classes to give them to Muslims.”

PM Modi emphasized the importance of remembering past mistakes in order to prevent empowering those who have tarnished Uttar Pradesh's progress and safety, he further said, “Our sisters and daughters were afraid to leave their homes. People feared buying land due to mafia takeovers. Remember how goons and mafias were welcomed by SP? Rioters received special treatment, and orders were issued to release terrorists from jail. We cannot afford to make the same mistake in this election that would boost their morale again.”

In his ending statement, the PM urged each and every voter of UP to ensure a decisive victory with their votes for BJP. PM Modi also asked each and everyone from the audience to convey his gratitude and best regards, door-to-door.
