People are voting for NDA because of its development work, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at a poll rally in Bihar on Sunday.
Modi cautioned people against “double-double Yuvraj” while evoking the upcoming “Chhatj puja” to reiterate the commitment of his government towards the development and welfare of people.
Speaking in Chhapra, the PM spoke directly to women about their concerns while seeking votes for the NDA which is contesting Bihar elections with incumbent CM Nitish Kumar as it’s face.
“Double-double Yuvraj, out of which one is jungle raj ke Yuvraj, are eyeing your votes ….it is double-double ke Yuvraj versus double engine ki sarkar.
Remember how people of Uttar Pradesh treated one double-double ke yuvraj,” he said reminding people about the coming together of Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav in last elections in Uttar Pradesh.
“What happened to double-double ke yuvraj in UP will happen to double-double yuvraj in Bihar, ” he said attacking RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav and Rahul Gandhi who are together in “mahagathbandhan” against the NDA.
“The two yuvrajs are fighting for their political survival…..They are not concerned about Bihar’s welfare,” he said, also telling youngsters to remember “jungle raj ki sachai” and what their mothers told them about the period.
“Mothers used to warn children about ‘lakarsunghwa’ …they were scared of their children getting kidnapped…..this was the sachai, truth, of jungle raj,” he said
While he slammed the Opposition for questioning Indian Armed forces action and spoke about development/welfare works by the NDA, he is told women to start preparing for Chatt puja without any worries as their son, that is him, was there in Delhi to look after their interests
“Maa Chatt puja ki tayarri karo, Dilli main tumhara beta baitha hai…Start preparing for Chat puja, your son in Delhi will not let you go hungry, ” he said
Also reminding voters about how RJD treated Nitish Kumar and late Raghuvansh Prasad, he said if you want to save Bihar do not vote for ‘jungle raj’.
The PM will be speaking at three more places today- Samastipur, Motihari and Bagaha.
Political pundits proven wrong in the first phase of Bihar polls
New Delhi, November 1
Political pundits were proven wrong in the first phase of Bihar polls which saw a large voter turnout despite COVID-19, said Prime Miniter Narendra Modi at an election rally in Bihar’s Chapra.
“Voting in the 1st phase has indicated huge gains for NDA; this has left opponents frustrated,” he added.
Modi said opponents were frustrated and have begun to vent their ire by shoving own supporters, in a dig at a recent video of Tejashwi Yadav.
“NDA defeated “double-double Yuvraj” in UP polls; the “double-double Yuvraj” will meet the same fate in Bihar,” said PM Modi in swipe at Rahul Gandhi and Tejashwi.
The NDA government ensured kitchen fires kept burning in homes of poor during corona pandemic, he said.
“Recently our neighbour accepted complicity in Pulwama attack; it exposed those who doubted valour of sons of Bihar,” said PM Modi.—PTI
