A rundown of the Nation’s worst crisis, primarily witnessed in the past decade under the Congress rule, was Shri Narendra Modi’s focus in his address to supporters at Bijnor and Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh, on the afternoon of 6th April. Appealing the people to vote for the BJP, Shri Modi affirmed them of the party’s focus on bringing in the change that the Nation deserves and ensuring a life of dignity for its people.
Shri Modi affirmed of the UPA’s wipe out in the 2014 Elections and said that the time had come to form a strong and stable government in Delhi. He appealed to the people to vote for BJP whose only focus was the Nation and its people’s development. “Our heads are not born to wear crowns. We are here to serve the people day and night. Such is a government we want,” stated Shri Modi. He recalled his childhood days when he had to sell tea to earn a living, and spoke of how the insult borne then had reinforced his determination to work towards serving the poor. “We want to bring a change in your lives. The poor must have a life with dignity and we are devoted to this cause,” affirmed Shri Modi.
Attacking the Congress’ sky-high arrogance and its devastating impact on the Nation’s economy and its people, Shri Modi said that their pride was so much that despite being in power for the last decade, they were reluctant to consider the Prime Minister as their leader. “Ask Congressmen who their leader is. They won't say it is Dr. Manmohan Singh,” said Shri Modi, as he spoke of how the Congress party had forgotten patriotism and had instead become patriots of one family. He further exposed the Congress’ blatant lies and divisive strategies, and spoke of how their imperfect policies for farmers, women empowerment and the common man, had left every segment of the society longing for a change in the government.
Shri Modi highlighted how ‘favoritism’ was the Samajwadi Party’s forte by citing the fact that while majority of the UP’s population had to face the brunt of severe power crisis, there were some ‘special people’ who enjoyed a life of luxury with uninterrupted power supply. “The issue is beyond money. The lives and dreams of farmers are suffering. Their future generations suffer: We can also generate tremendous buzz around the world for our handicrafts but these people lack the will,” said Shri Modi, referring to the lack of vision of the Centre and UP government.
Attacking the Congress’ propaganda of being secular and the Congress President’s claims of having framed the 15 point programme for the welfare of minorities, Shri Modi stated how, on being questioned by an MP from Uttar Pradesh about the programme’s impact on Muslims in the state, the Congress had shamelessly declared that not a single rupee had been spent in Uttar Pradesh towards this in the past year. Shri Modi also quoted figures of the rampant riots that have occurred in the past one year, under the Congress’ governance, and especially in the state of UP, under the SP government.
Stating how Gujarat had ensured empowerment to all sections of the society, Shri Modi cited researched figures which affirmed that the Muslims in the State were well-off when compared to their counterparts in many other states. “Those who practice votebank politics find it correct to keep the society poor. Neither can they do development nor are they able to serve the society. Such Governments should be uprooted,” said Shri Modi.
Exposing the deceptiveness of the SABKA – SP, BSP and Congress – whereby they acted as enemies in UP but were strong friends in Delhi, Shri Modi urged the people to make India free from the Congress and its allies. He called for the need to understand and unmask the games played by the SABKA, and said, “Congress, SP and BSP, they are not 3 but they are 1. These parties want a weak government, but now we cannot have this continuing any longer. Such games must stop.”
