Narendra Modi speaks at a Vijay Shankhnad rally in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh
Gorakhpur / UP – With parties across India gearing up for the Lok Sabha elections due in 2014, BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi campaigns through rallies across India. Today Mr Modi addresses Vijay Shankhnad rally in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh.
Here are the highlights:
I greet all the leaders of Uttar Pradesh and all the BJP dignitaries present here.
In this cold and that too in far-flung areas, a rally can attract so many people. The wind is blowing in a particular direction.
Your voice can be heard in the streets of Varanasi also.
This vision affirms that Indian will be Congress free soon.
I want to honour the youth of Uttar Pradesh. On 15 December, on the anniversary of Sardar Vallabhai Patel, there was a Unity run across the country.
I am pleased to say that in every corner of Uttar Pradesh, people ran in his memory. And this became a world record.
50 lakh people ran across the country for a single cause.
The biggest statue will be built in India and it will be twice the size of Statue of Liberty in United States.
Farmers across the country have contributed iron from unused tools for the statue.
Wherever I look, I can see people, Janta janardan ke darshan ishwar darshan ke barabar hote hain.
In our country, elections took place in 5 states and BJP won in 4 of those states.
People do not consider Dalits, tribals and marginalised people important. They are important only for vote banks.
In the four states where BJP has been victorious, we won by a huge margin.
In Rajasthan there are 34 seats reserved for SC communities. How many Congress won- not even 1.
There are 10 seats for SC communities in Chhattisgarh and Congress won only 1 seat.
The Dalits, tribals and marginalised people have confidence in BJP now.
Congress party speaks about the poor all the time. They remember the poor only when elections are near.
In so many years, they spoke so much about the poor but then there is no change in the condition of the poor.
There is no change in the past 60 years. Our country is not like that.
I have found the answer to this. The future of Congress is in keeping the poor people poor.
They do not have the confidence to tolerate a tea seller.
Congress is exploiting our poverty.
Will you tolerate the insult to the poor?
Will you tolerate the party that makes a vote bank of the poor?
This is not a subject of a tea seller anymore.
Can you get food in 12 or 5 rupees? If this is not joke on the poor, than what is?
It is the poor who suffer and die and the government in UP and Delhi are not interested in fighting against poverty.
Which youngster wants to travel miles to Gujarat and leave his land and elderly parents?
If he got a daily living in his own city or village, they would not have to leave Uttar Pradesh.
Uttar Pradesh has been given so many gifts by God. In 10 years, UP can outshine any other states.
In Varanasi, I was challenged. Nowadays wherever i go the father and son follow me.
Today they said that Modiji cannot make UP into Gujarat.
Netaji, do you know the meaning of making Gujarat? 24×7 electricity in every single village. You are correct Netaji, you cannot make Gujarat. For this a 56-inch chest is required.
For the last 10 years, Gujarat has progressed and is still progressing. You cannot do this.
If you make UP into a Gujarat, the people of Gujarat will move to Uttar Pradesh.
You are unabe to give respect to the women nor can you provide development.
If we have to remove poverty from the country, Uttar Pradesh can alone remove it.
We have animals, men, food and water, why do we need to get milk from outside?
Can we not get an Amul Diary here?
I promise that
