Unnao, (UNI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed the opposition parties and said that during the previous government, lives of businessmen and traders were under threat due to riots, curfew and ransom and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government pulled Uttar Pradesh out of this anarchy.
Addressing an election rally here, Modi said, “In the government of dynastic politicians accused of heinous crimes and mafias were the members of the council of ministers.
The Mafia was running the government at that time. There were clear cut instructions to administration that whatever mafia and goons say is right. Lives of businessmen and traders were under threat due to riots, curfew and ransom. The BJP government has pulled UP out of this anarchy.”
He said that these dynastic politicians considered a few areas as their empire. “They think that people will do whatever they will say, but the enthusiasm with which the public is voting in the third phase, the people are saying BJP will come and Yogi will come,” he said. Referring to Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav, Modi said that they are even losing the seat which they considered as the safest.
“You must have seen that they have to plead before the father, who was pushed from the state and grabbed the party by humiliating him, to save the seat,” he said.
He said, “The Yogi government improved the law and order of UP, whose image was created by them that nothing could change here. UP is saying that we will bring those who brought back security.
UP is saying that we will bring back those who brought back respect.” Continuing his attack on Akhilesh, Modi said, “Video of a party president insulting UP police and our police personnel and abusing them, is being watched in each and every house. The abuses hurled from the dais were not only for the UP police, it was an effort to boost the morale of his rioters and mafia friends.”
He said, “For the sake of votes the poor, Dalits and backwards of UP were abused and it was applauded in Punjab, but dynastic politicians here did not oppose it even for the sake of showing off.”
Modi also slammed Akhilesh for terming corona vaccines as BJP’s vaccines. “Dozens of the nations in the world were in the queue for the vaccines manufactured in India, but they opened a front against the jab, which saved the lives of the poor. It was said that it’s the BJP’s vaccines.”
Taking a jibe at Akhilesh, he said, “On March 10 when the poll results will come, they are going to give a statement that BJP won because fingers of the people only pressed the lotus button as BJP’s vaccines were administered to them.”
The PM said that the government supported the poor families at every step during the pandemic. “We gave free gas cylinders to sisters, who were beneficiaries of the Ujjwala scheme for several months. We deposited thousands of crore rupees in ‘Jan Dhan’ accounts of women.
We sent thousands of crore rupees directly in the accounts of small farmers and workers,” he said. He said that the BJP government is that of the poor. “This is the government which trusts in the potential of the poor, therefore we got bank accounts of crores of poor opened and opened gates of the banks for them.
Today the government can help the beneficiaries by a click without any middlemen,” he said. Pointing towards the water crisis in the area, Modi said, “A large part of UP including Unnao was facing acute problems of water-borne diseases due to lack of clean water. Specially our mothers, sisters and daughters had to face many hardships despite the fact that the region has the blessings of mother Ganga.”
He said that dynastic politicians were not concerned about the plight of the people. “They were neither concerned about mother Ganga, which was groaning with pollution, nor about mothers, sisters and daughters of the poor and backward families.
This is the double engine government which is ensuring water supply to every household today. Under Jal Jeevan Mission more than 5.50 crore families are getting tap water supply of which lakhs of families are in UP,” he said.
