He assured the people of Thane that pending projects would be completed and the BJP would ensure better rail connectivity. He added that a lot of value addition could be done in the Konkan Railway.
Shri Modi was extremely critical of the misgovernance and corruption in the last 15 years under the Congress-NCP. “15 years is a very long time. Ask any Congress or NCP person what they did in the last 15 years and they will not be able to say anything…it is not that the Congress-NCP did not know there was a mess. But what did they do- they would change CMs. It was a shift system,” he pointed out.
He warned the people against believing that the Congress and NCP are different. “Their Gotra is the same. They were all in Congress. They separated due to power and again came back due to power,” avowed Shri Modi. Shri Modi stated that 15th October is the process of Shuddhikaran of Maharashtra.
The Prime Minister was equally critical about the increased terror attacks in Maharashtra under the Congress and NCP.
