Shri Modi attacks Congress for allying with Samajwadi party
This election is about UP’s fight against SCAM - Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati, says Shri Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a huge public meeting in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. Speaking at the event, Shri Modi said, “In 1857, the first struggle for independence begun from Meerut to fight the British and now the battle against poverty has to begin from here.” Shri Modi urged the people to change the government in the state to change the fortunes of Uttar Pradesh.

Prime Minister Modi said that the BJP was concerned about the state’s youth and wanted to provide employment opportunities for them to prosper. “Our Government is trying everything possible for progress of Uttar Pradesh. A lot has been done but I want to work more for the state to touch newer heights of progress.”

Shri Modi remarked that there was no fear of law among criminals in Uttar Pradesh. The PM questioned the state government, “Why are innocent citizens being killed? Why are innocent traders being killed?” 

Launching attack on Congress party, Shri Modi opined, “Congress was going to every village and saying how Uttar Pradesh has been looted. They were demeaning the Samajwadi party and the state government. But what happened all of a sudden that Congress became allies with the SP.”

Shri Modi said that it was now Uttar Pradesh’s fight against ‘SCAM’- Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati. He added, “This is a fight against SCAM. People must decide whether they want SCAM or a BJP Government devoted to development. We are willing to do everything possible for Uttar Pradesh.”

The PM also accused the state government of not focussing on healthcare of people. Shri Modi stated, “Centre allotted funds for healthcare. But the state government did not even spend it for the people. What politics guided you when you prevented development works and healthcare to reach people?”

The PM also spoke about welfare measures for sugarcane farmers and implementation of One Rank, One Pension scheme for ex-servicemen. Shri Modi also spoke about demonetisation drive and how a few people were facing its heat. He added, “I knew on 8th November that people who looted will not like the decision that was taken and they'll join hands against me. But I’ll continue to fight the evils of corruption and black money.” 

The event was attended by several BJP leaders and karyakartas.
