Land, air or space, we had courage to do surgical strikes: PM Modi
MEERUT/RUDRAPUR: In his first election address after the poll schedule was announced, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the opposition by saying that 'if Congress is removed, poverty will disappear.' He also referred to the success of 'Mission Shakti', saying, "It is this chowkidar's government that had the courage to conduct surgical strikes on land, in air as well as in space."
"For four generations, the Congress family has harped on their slogans of 'garibi hatao'. The family continued to grow but the poor remained poor. For 72 years, Congress has backstabbed the poor of this country but now I assure you that your chowkidar, your Prime Minister will not rest till poverty is truly alleviated from the country," Modi said at a rally in Meerut.
The PM alleged that "mahamilawat (grand adulteration) leaders are competing with each other as to who will become a hero in Pakistan." "They are all over Pakistani media. People are clap for them. You tell me what does our nation want? A hero of India or of Pakistan?"
Referring to the opposition's demand for proof of the Balakot air strikes, the PM said, "Kya humein saboot chahiye ya sapoot chahiye? Mere desh ke sapoot hi mere desh ke sabse bada saboot hai. Jo saboot maangte hain woh sapoot ko lalkaarte hain" (Do we want evidence or do we want our soldiers who are the true children of our country and the biggest evidence? Those who are asking for evidence are challenging the true sons of the nation.")
Taking a jibe at the Congress's poll promise of transferring Rs 72,000 into the bank accounts of the poor every year, the PM said, "Those people who could not open bank accounts for the poor in the last 70 years are promising direct transfer of money into their accounts."
In his next poll stop at Rudrapur in Udham Singh Nagar district of Uttarakhand, Modi resumed his tirade against Congress by alleging that the party was responsible for corruption, lack of development and migration from villages of Uttarakhand. The PM started his address by greeting the huge crowd that had gathered at the rally venue 'Modi Maidan' (named after the PM) in Kumaoni. Expressing his gratitude for the enormous gathering, he said that everyone who appeared in the rally was a 'Chowkidar'. He asked people to chant after him and complete the sentence, 'Main bhi........Chowkidar'.
莫迪的下一站是位于北阿坎德邦Udham Singh Nagar区的鲁德拉普尔，在那里，他再次发表了对国大党的激烈抨击，声称国大党要为腐败、发展不足以及来自北阿坎德邦村庄的移民负责。莫迪总理在库马奥尼向聚集在集会地点“莫迪广场”(以总理命名)的大量人群致意，开始了他的讲话。他表示参加集会的每个人都是“守望者”。他让人们跟着他一起诵读:“Main bhi……Chowkidar”。

It is out of my comprehension why someone in the right mind would ever like, let alone vote for Congress which has nothing but looted the country to a large part, propagated the culture of corruption; unless have financial or religious interest in having congress( for certain religions, opposing BJP is a decree from their top).

Rahul Gandhi is hell bent of strip us middle class by distributing our hard earned money. The guy who has never earned a single paisa on his own comes with all pathetic schemes for votes. His schemes are as laughable as he himself. I wish congress has a sane leader or else he will run it to oblivion!!!

After having worked 24/7 and delivered on Jobs/Farm income/toilets/Free houses and Smart cities.
The Ganga water made clean as the Thames in UK.
Modiji must shed hesitation and declare that it was he who created the ISRO/DRDO and IAF in the country.
That nothing exsisted before May 2014 and he it was who created the IAF Academy which gives the nation brave hearts like Abhi.
Modiji has no reason to hold back.

The biggest issue is that our country is going towards Civil war. BJP has created hindu vs muslim by creating a fear our mind and telling us that they are our enemy. The fact is our real enemy is poverty, unemployment, lack of development etc which BJP isnt talking about. India’s biggest strenght was its UNITY, us being a secular nation which Modi Ji has destroyed it. Time will prevail the truth and it might be too late by then.
