Speaking at rallies in Ratlam and Kukshi (Dhar) in Madhya Pradesh, on the afternoon of 16th April, Shri Narendra Modi appealed to the people to end the misrule of the Congress and support the BJP whose government has successfully brought out Madhya Pradesh from its tag of ‘bimaru rajya’ and developed it into a progressing economy.
Shri Modi spoke of how Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan had, with his people-focused initiatives, brought MP back from being a ‘bimaru state’ and transformed it into a developing economy. He affirmed that if Shivraj ji could do this for MP, the BJP could do the same for the Nation.
Shri Modi said that the people’s preference was evident in the way they re-elected the BJP in the states of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. “What is the reason that people in Chhattisgarh, MP and Gujarat are electing the BJP again and again? People here have seen the BJP, they have understood BJP well and they trust the BJP to solve their problems. People are aware that the BJP's sole aim is to work for the development of the people,” said Shri Modi, even as he further added, “MP ended Bantadhar politics back in 2003, and now it is time to do the same in Delhi.”
Speaking on the rampant corruption prevalent in the Nation, Shri Modi stated that this has been the practise of the Congress since ages, and cited how even during Shri Rajiv Gandhi’s rule, this prevailed, as was evident in Rajiv Gandhi’s statement of the Rupee from the Centre reaching the poor only as a mere 15 ps. Shri Modi affirmed that the poor, Dalits and impoverished have full rights on the resources of the Nation, and the BJP will ensure that these are used for their welfare and the welfare of the entire Nation.
Shri Modi affirmed that the 2014 Elections would lay the foundation stone for the bright future of the people, and especially the youth in the age bracket of 18 to 28 years. Urging the youth to take the lead, Shri Modi asked them to do their bit for the Nation by bringing the BJP to power and ensuring progress for the Nation.
