Why waste votes on Congress which doesn’t have development road map: PM Modi in Gujarat | India News – Times of India


RAJKOT: I want you to do one thing for me. I want you to make sure that BJP wins or leads in each and every booth. Will you do it for me?” PM Narendra Modi said on Sunday while campaigning for the Gujarat elections in Gir Somnath district’s Verval, his forehead smeared with sandalwood paste after a visit to the Somnath temple.
Congress had won all four seats in Gir Somnath — Talala, Una, Kodinar and Somnath — in the previous election. Amreli, another of the districts Modi visited, saw BJP lose the five seats at stake — Dhari, Amreli, Lathi, Savarkundla and Rajula — to Congress.
To voters in Amreli district, the PM popped a question, “Why waste votes on Congress, a party that does not have a vision or roadmap for development? What did they do for you (in the past five years)? Can you remember any work done by them?”
In Dhoraji town of Rajkot, he said voters should demand to know from Congress how it allowed someone who had “stalled the Narmada Dam project” to join its Bharat Jodo Yatra in Maharashtra. “You must have seen in the newspapers the photo of a Congress figure (Rahul) with the woman (Patkar). He had his hands on the woman’s shoulder while on a padyatra (foot march). So, please ask him why he was walking with the anti-Narmada activist?”
He also accused “the woman activist” of “defaming Gujarat to such an extent that even the World Bank stopped funds for the Narmada project”.
Rahul is scheduled to campaign for Congress in Rajkot on Monday.
At the end of every rally, PM Modi sought “a personal favour” from the people. “Please visit each and every household in your town and tell people that Narendra Modi was here and has sent his greetings,” he said. “BJP needs blessings from our elders and the people.”
In Botad, Modi said the assembly elections in Gujarat would determine where the state would be in the next 25 years, ANI reported.
Exhorting people to vote BJP back to office, Modi, during his 30-minute-long speech in native tongue Gujarati said, “This election is not only for the next five years, it will determine what Gujarat looks like in the next 25 years.”
Elections to the 182-member assembly will be held in two phases on December 1 and 5
