Bhagalpur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday addressed his fourth parivartan rally in Bhagalpur in an attempt to boost the Bharatiya Janata Party’s chances in the upcoming Bihar polls.
Attacking Nitish Kumar & Lalu Yadav at the rally, Modi said, “Those who have ruled the state for 25 years, they must give an account of the work done by them but they are questioning me. Nitish and Lalu are spreading poison of casteism and communalism.”
He further added, “They (Nitish-Lalu) are fooling people of Bihar. Nitish Kumar is cheating people of the state by announcing package of Rs 2.70 lakh crore.”
Stating that there were no talks about taking Bihar state forward in Swabhiman rally, Modi said, “The rally that was held a few days back had only one topic of discussion – ‘Modi’. All they spoke about was Modi Modi Modi. I thought only NDA youth used to do ‘Modi-Modi’, but now even even my detractors are talking only about me.”
He also added that for the first time in 25 years, Bihar will vote for development.
Ahead of Modi’s fourth rally, Nitish Kumar has asked him not to make new promises to Bihar but “show moral courage” and ensure implementation of all the pledges made till date.
“Show moral courage. No new promises please. Outline a credible action plan to deliver on the promises you have made to the people till date,” he said in a series of tweets.
Claiming that he was the first one to ask Bihar CM if the state was affected by Nepal earthquake, Modi said, “Bihar CM had no information. I then called other officials to check if the state needed help.
Modi added, “People of Bihar are aware and they know if state develops, the country will develop.”
“Should not we fight elections on the issue of development and remove the government which doesn’t work even when money is available. Some people have habit of spreading lies and fooling people,” said Modi.
“Nitish Kumar allied with Congress, who jailed Jai Prakash Narayan. He abandoned JP Narayan’s ideology,” said Modi.
Attacking Nitish & Lalu, Modi said, “When the people who are in power now ask you for votes, ask them what happened to their promise of providing electricity. The Swabhiman rally not only betrayed Bihar but the whole country.There were no talks about taking Bihar state forward. The rally that was held a few days back had only one topic of discussion – ‘Modi’. All they spoke about was ‘Modi-ModiModi’. I thought only NDA youth used to do ‘Modi-Modi’, but now even my detractors are talking only about me.”
“This rally breaks records of not just NDA, but all rallies held in the state of Bihar for the many years. When I come here in 2019, I will give you a record of everything my government would have done by then,” says PM Modi.
