Srinagar, Pithoragarh, Narendra Modi: Just two days ahead of the assembly elections in the Uttarakhand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hit out the election campaign trail in the state. In his poll rally held at GITI Maidan in Srinagar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched a frontal attack on the Congress government in the hill state.
High lights: He attacked over the questioning over the surgical strike by the Congress party, One Rank One Pension or OROP for 40 years and for "indulging" in large corruption across state and other places.
PM Modi asked here, Did you ever thought why despite having such great potential Uttarakhand has far behind Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh which were created together by Atal Bihari Vajpayee? He further said In spite of the Maoist problem, Chattisgargh with a BJP government has established itself among the fastest growing states.
Modi Said It is a misfortune of our country that some parties and leaders raise questions about our armed forces and the valour of those who laid down their lives for the country. No one should ever question their bravery, He described the state of Uttarakhand as a land of the brave soldiers; he attacked Congress for questioning the Authencity of the surgical strike by the Congress party.
The time has come to end come for the people who looted the country for the past 70 years. I promise that those who looted will have to pay back now.
He urged the people to press the BJP party symbol, the lotus symbol and vote overwhelmingly in the favour of BJP in order to move ahead on the path of development.
Narendra Modi assured the people that he has grand plans to tap the state's tourism potential and herbal wealth to attract the tourists.
He said, New employment opportunities can be generated in tourism, yoga and herbal sectors.The moving away of young people from villages in the hills can be stopped thoroughly. It is not impossible. He asked the people to take a pledge to hand down exemplary punishment in the polls to those who played with their future so that no future government dares to do so.What is needed is a vision, a sense of purpose.
Hitting out at Harish Rawat government, Modi said, the present chief minister had opposed the creation of Uttarakhand. His party is now in alliance with the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh at whose behest women were raped and people shot dead at Rampur Tiraha during the statehood agitation.
He said, Even in Uttarakhand Congress and SP has a secret alliance. Would you vote for them?
It is three months since demonetisation happened but they are still abusing me. Don’t you think I should make those who have looted this country ruthlessly for the 70 years payback, he said.
