Jaunpur: After massive roadshow in Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses an election rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Jaunpur on Saturday.

Here are the highlights:


  • History has been created in the womb of Jaunpur. I salute the land.
  • From the land of sacrifice, even today, soldiers die fighting terrorists.
  • It was cool, but the temperatures have been since soaring in the elections in UP.
  • People sometimes forget their ethics and culture and commit such sins that are unforgivable.
  • When the Army conducted surgical strikes, it destroyed enemy camps and before sunrise came back to our mother land.
  • This was a very courageous and planned to the very minute detail.
  • Surgical strikes by India is being studied by the world over.
  • But there are some who lost in their political greed started questioning the Army, said Modi should give proof. I want to tell them, go to Jaunpur and meet the mothers of whose sacrificed their lives for the motherland. And you dare question them?
  • For 40 years our forces demanded One Rank One Pension but nothing happened. I had promised that BJP government will deliver OROP and we did.
  • Chief Minister says kaam bolta hai, so I thought I should read the UP state government's website and I read it in public. The bad condition that UP is in courtesy SP was made public. The SP was exposed.
  • The election results will be out soon. It will be a wipe-out for SP, BSP and Congress. The BJP will win.
  • UP will celebrate Holi on March 13. I promise that at the first meeting after BJP is voted to power, the work to forgo farmer loans will be taken.
  • BJP is winning the first five phases of UP elections, it's your job to give us an absolute majority.
  • Give the BJP enough votes so that five years later you can question me. You give me a majority government and I will give you accountability.
  • Do you get electricity 24/7? Tell me the truth. SP says you do.
  • They are not interested in giving electricity in Jaunpur but only in Saifai
  • In Jaunpur, after the sun sets, can your mother and sisters step out of the house? Should they not have the right to live peacefully as men do?

Modi hit the campaign trail in his parliamentary constituency of Varanasi on Saturday by embarking on a road show from the gate of Banaras Hindu University.
