Patna: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday stepped up his attack on the Congress and RJD saying that “both parties have deceived the people of the state in the name of development” and predicted their defeat in the Lok Sabha elections.
“Nitish Kumar worked for the development of the state, but Congress-RJD and other Mahami-lawati parties are trying to pull Bihar back to the days of the lantern. Forget lantern and start using LED bulbs in your homes now,” PM Modi said on Saturday. The PM along with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was addressing a public meeting in Bihar’s Valmiki-nagar. This was his seventh political rally in Bihar ahead of the last three phases of polls.
Political analysts claimed that in the fifth phase three seats — Madhubani, Saran and Muzaffarpur — are crucial for the BJP. While for the sixth phase the BJP has fielded six candidates and alliance partner JD(U) is contesting on three seats in Bihar.
“All their lies have been exposed after the fourth phase of polls. After heaping abuses on me, they have now started targeting the Election Commission. They are doing this out of frustration because they know what is going to happen after May 23,” Prime Minister Modi said. .
He also took a dig at the Congress party for promising loan waiver and NYAY scheme saying that “they ruled for many years but couldn’t get the people to open bank accounts. They have come up with these schemes only to fool people during elections. I will not allow them to misuse public funds in the name of these schemes and I also want you to beware of such promises which are being made only to gain power.”...
