Give BJP majority to rule: Modi

Speaking at a rally at Central Business District (CBD) ground in Vishwas Nagar, Modi asked Delhiites not to repeat the “mistake” of voting for Arvind Kejriwal. In presence of all the 16 BJP candidates of Trans-Yamuna region, Modi pitched for two-thirds majority for the saffron party and promised development for all, cemented houses for the poor and also voiced for more development in East Delhi.

During his over half-an-hour address, he sought a clear mandate for the BJP, which fell short of majority in the 2013 polls, and asserted that his party will provide such a clean and stable government which people have “never seen” in the past, countering AAP’s key election plank.

Modi also complimented BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi for her administrative abilities. He said: “She knows Delhi inside out. She has administrative experience and is well versed with the history and geography of Delhi. She will take Delhi to new heights.”

Trying to woo the poor and the lower strata of society, who are considered to be the backbone of AAP’s support base, he said his government has already launched a war on corruption and promised development of slums.

Comparing Kejriwal, whom he did not name, with an auto-driver who cheats customers after making false promises, he said: “You cannot achieve success by fooling people again and again.”

Modi, who was accompanied by party president Amit Shah, Bedi besides a host of other leaders, claimed that the BJP could have formed government after 2013 Assembly elections by indulging in horse-trading but chose not to because it was not given a clear mandate to rule.

The Prime Minister further added: “My government wants to provide cemented houses to the people living in the slums at the same place. We want to start this from Delhi for which I need a strong government who wants to work.”

“The very people whom you voted for the last time, stabbed in your back. They shattered your dreams and destroyed Delhi. You gave them a befitting punishment in the Lok Sabha elections. People do not repeat their mistakes again and again,” Modi said at the mega rally.

The Prime Minister touched every issue from development of East Delhi (Trans-Yamuna) to cleaning the Yamuna. He also referred to the Opposition’s criticism over BJP leaders raising the successful visit of US President Barack Obama in Delhi poll campaign and said had his government made any mistake during the visit, the same parties would have criticised him and made it an election issue. He will address three more rallies in the Capital — one on Sunday in Dwarka and two rallies on February 3 and 4 at Rohini and south Delhi.
