Daltonganj, Nov 25: Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his first election rally in Jharkhand on Monday said that this election is not between individuals and parties but is rather a fight between those who looted Jharkhand and those who are serving the people.
Addressing a huge gathering at the Chiyanki Airport Ground here, Mr Modi said, "This election is between two working cultures and two ideologies... a fight between those looted Jharkhand and those who are serving the people." "No matter what the opposition parties say, BJP will stand to protect the Jal Junglee and Zameen of Jharkhand and will not allow anyone to come in between," he asserted. In the last five years, the present BJP government has worked on the five 'Sutras' of stability, good governance, prosperity, honour and security, the Prime Minister stated.
Mr Modi said with the honest efforts of the BJP government villages have been connected with roads, electricity has reached homes and the changing environment is creating new job opportunities. BJP has given a stable government and has worked day and night to remove corruption and bring transparency in the state, he stated."The BJP has protected Jharkhand from being looted and opened the doors of prosperity," he said adding that BJP has provided right to everyone to live with dignity.
Mr Modi said, "The state government has made all efforts to free Jharkhand from Maoists and criminals, and create a fearless environment." "Maoists managed to grow in the state due to political instability as governments formed and destroyed from back door as their main focus was on corruption," he maintained. Slamming the opposition, he said, "These selfish people had no desire of serving the people as their sole agenda was enjoying the power and misusing the resources, and once again such forces have joined hands and are misleading the people and seeking their votes."
The Prime Minister told the people of the constituency that a new steel plant is going to be operational in the assembly segment. For the first time, a provision has been made to use a large percentage of the bauxite mined here for the development.Mr Modi said that it is a matter of pride that Ayushman Bharat Yojana was started from Jharkhand. He said the state successfully adopted the scheme and showed a new direction to the nation.
The Prime Minister also offered tributes to the policemen who were martyred in the Maoist ambush in Latehar recently and expressed his condolence towards their family members. Thanking the people for their continued support, he said that the lotus bloomed across the country due to the people of all sections. (UNI)
