Khunti, Dec 3 : Accusing the Congress and Jharkhand Mukti Morcha(JMM) of looting the state, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said both were spreading rumour and fear among the people to capture power in Jharkhand.
Addressing an election rally at the Birsa College stadium, he said the people should remain alert of the Congress and the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha as they are aware of their history and acts. He said both the parties have their eyes on the natural resources of the state and the leaders of JMM and Congress do not want industrialisation and development in the area as they are aware that if the people start getting money then they will lose their importance. " I argue that on the day of the election turn up in huge numbers at the polling booths near you and by voting in large numbers reject the fake rumours being spread by these parties," he said and added that the people needed to press the symbol of lotus to give strength to Jharkhand which has turned 19 as the elections for Jharkhand was for development of the state and to continue the benefits of the double engine government.
He said, the huge turnout of the people in the first phase of the elections has made three things clear-- first the people of Jharkhand believe in democracy and they want to further strengthen the democratic values. Secondly the BJP government in Jharkhand has broken the backbone of the maoists who have been confined to a smaller area due to which fear has lessened among the people and development was taking place.
"On November 30 those who have been rejected by the people tried to create an environment of fear which was watched by the entire country. However, their actions were rejected by the people for which the people of Jharkhand needed to be congratulated," he said adding thirdly the people have faith in BJP and Lotus as they were aware that it is the only party which can assure development of the state.
