Prime Minister Narendra Modi had his last three rallies of campaigning for the first phase of Lok Sabha Polls yesterday. He addressed three rallies at Karnataka at Chitradurga followed by another at Mysore in the evening, other rallies at Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra. Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray also joined the stage at Maharashtra Rally.
While addressing in Chitradurga, Karnataka, PM Modi started his speech by saying Karnataka has always been in support with BJP. He appreciated all and said that this Chowkidar could fight any problem with your support and also thanked all for such support.
Then talking about the terror attack, he said that when BJP attacked terrorists, it not only hurt Pakistan but, also Congress and moreover its allies wept over the action.
“We attacked terror in Pakistan, but some people in India felt the pain. The chief minister here went a step further, he said talk of the valour of our forces should not be done, it damages his vote bank. I want to ask him, is your vote bank in India or Pakistan?”
Further taking a jibe at CM of Karnataka, PM Modi said Karnataka CM went a step further, CM said he doesn’t want to talk about the valor of the army forces, it might affect his vote bank. PM said,
“I want to ask him, is your vote bank in India or Pakistan?”
Further, he said that not only about the airstrike but, oppositions have also raised questions on strike in the space. PM blamed opposition and said they didn’t have the guts to approve missile tests.
PM said that opposition never respected soldiers as well as science. Later he claimed that all these opposition parties only did injustice with people of the country and he also said,
“You didn’t deserve such govt.”
After Karnataka, PM Modi left for Tamil Nadu rally. While addressing in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK leader E Palanisamy also joined the stage with PM.
There PM Modi said that Coimbatore witnessed a deadly terror attack in Feb 1998. He mentioned how Congress in Centre and DMK acted that time is very well known to you. He proudly said but today’s India is changed. India is ready to give a strong response to anyone who dares to attack India.
Same as in Karnataka, PM jibed at Congress in TN again and said,
“I just don’t understand our friends in Opposition, they’re always suspecting our Army and Air Force… an alliance with such thinking can never protect India… The opposition has started asking why is Modi talking about nationalism. Is it a crime to be a nationalist?”
At last, he said to youngsters and newcomers that all they can do is cast their first vote so that hard-working farmers can witness a good life. Then he said to cast their first vote for the power of stability as well as truth. He said,
“Give the message that you believe in development, not divisive and dynastic politics.”
While addressing the Maharashtra rally, PM Modi said that not only Pakistan but Congress also want our army not to get the strength which they need to stop the threat of terror. Then he claimed that they both desire that those who increased terror roam openly in the country.
Later he said,
“It is a shame that the Congress manifesto speaks about weakening our security establishment.”
