Time has come to oust ‘useless & corrupt’ UPA govt, says Modi
Taking on Congress, BJP’s prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi today said time has come to replace a ‘useless and corrupt’ government at the Centre with a strong one.
At a ‘Bharat Vijay’ rally here, he said during its 10-year rule, the UPA Government had done nothing for the common man and only indulged in rampant corruption.
Time has come to throw out a ‘useless and corrupt’ government at the Centre and replace it with one that was strong, Modi said as he pitched for change in favour of a decisive leadership, a key poll plank of the saffron outfit.
Wooing young voters, expected to play an important role in the Lok Sabha election outcome, the BJP stalwart accused the Manmohan Singh government with neglecting people in the 18-28 age group in a big way.
This age group is always very important for a country but the UPA had done nothing for them, the Gujarat Chief Minister maintained.
BJP had come to power for three terms in succession in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh only because the party worked assiduously for the welfare of people, he said.
Modi showered praise on Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for doing a lot to improve the life of people in the BJP-ruled state.
While addressing poll rally in Dhar, Modi Modi said if elected, his government will launch a mega irrigation project.
The project will be on the lines of ‘Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna’ which was launched by the earlier Vajpayee government.
‘The way former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had initiated Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna for the development of villages, I have a dream of starting ‘Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sichai Yojna’ for strengthening farmers,’ Modi said addressing a rally at Kukshi in the tribal-dominated Dhar Lok Sabha constituency.
‘This will help in strengthening farmers and making the country more self-reliant in the field of agriculture,’ he said.
Blaming Congress for the backwardness of tribals, Modi alleged that in the last 60 years, Congress has not done anything for their welfare and development which is included in BJP’s priorities.
