Madhya Pradesh rising above vote bank politics, promoting development: Modi
Khandwa – Bharatiya Janata Party prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Friday said Madhya Pradesh has risen above vote bank politics.
Addressing a rally here, the Gujarat chief minister said: “On one side there are false promises, and on the other, there is the BJP’s performance of development. Madhya Pradesh has decided to vote for development, and that it won’t support vote bank politics.
Modi, while praising the development-linked work of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, said: “What was the condition of Madhya Pradesh a decade ago? Did you get electricity earlier when people were ill, when you had to study for exams? I congratulate Shivraj Singh Chouhan for the Atal Jyoti Abhiyan. He is working towards providing electricity for the people.”
“The poor of MP can see the development, but Delhi cannot. Delhi can only see the chair, not the poor,” he added.
Earlier, addressing a rally in Chhatarpur, Modi claimed that the UPA-led central government and the Congress Party was finding it difficult to digest the progress being made in BJP-ruled states of the country.
Madhya Pradesh is going to polls on November 25, and results would be announced on December 8, along with those in Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Mizoram and New Delhi.
