Bihar : On the afternoon of 7th May, Shri Narendra Modi addressed rallies at Valmiki Nagar and Bettiah in Bihar, and assured the people of the BJP’s focus on good governance and development. Shri Modi also made a scathing attack on the Congress’ deceitful politics, and urged the people to support the BJP’s development politics.
The Congress’ negligence towards the people, and more so of their utter disregard for the tribals and the Adivasi community, was spoken of by Shri Modi, who stated how the nothing had been done for their betterment during the Congress’ rule of over 50 years. He said that it was under Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji’s government that a separate Ministry and budget was allocated for the welfare of the tribal community.
Shri Modi also shared deep concern for the condition of the farmers and spoke of how the BJP had in its Manifesto cited of bringing in standardisation in the determination of Minimum Support Price, and thereby ensuring fair revenue for their produce.
He retaliated to the Congress leaders’ statements of him practising ‘neech raajneeti’ (low-level politics), and said that it was the Congress which was playing low-level politics. He cited the many scams that the Congress had unabashedly indulged in – like the CWG scam, the Adarsh scam, the coal block allocation scam, the Nirbhaya Fund which lies unused till date – and asserted that this, and more, were proof enough of the low-level politics of the Congress. “I want to tell you what is ‘Neech Rajneeti’. When grains are allowed to rot, not given to poor & given to alcohol makers – its Neech Rajneeti. CWG was a chance to show India’s might to the world. There was a toilet paper scam also. This is Neech Rajneeti. Our Jawans work hard but Pakistan cuts their heads & Delhi is silent, feeds Pak PM Biryani. Isn’t this Neech Rajneeti & Karma? Nobody steals coal but these people did. Is such corruption Neech Rajneeti & Neech Karma or not,” said Shri Modi.
In Bettiah, Shri Modi recalled the statement made by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru of Bettiah’s potential to become the 5th Metro city, and stated how the Congress had not even bothered to develop this untapped potential. He said that how will those, who hadn’t listened to their ancestors either, listen to the needs and requirements of the people.
Shri Modi affirmed that his fight was against those who had looted the Nation, and urged the people to support the BJP and enable a ‘sevak’ to serve the Nation. He appealed to the people to vote in large numbers on 12th May, and assured them that for a strong government that they enable him to form, he will return their faith and support by developing a strong Nation.
Shri Chandramohan Rai and Shri Satish Chandra Dubey were present during the rally at Valmiki Nagar.
