Delhi election: Narendra Modi appeals for a responsible Govt

Ahead of Delhi Assembly election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed a huge rally at Dwarka in the National Capital, where he sought people’' mandate for the BJP to ensure a pro-people Government.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed a mega rally at Dwarka in Delhi where he appealed to form a Government which does not run away from its responsibilities towards people.

Lashing out at AAP and its chief Arvind Kejriwal for ditching people after staying in power in 49 days, PM Modi said,"There is a habit in politics, to make promises and then forget them. People here indulge in sloganeering. We are up against such opponents who deal under the table to form Governments.

"These people think about a big lie everyday that can be swung to the media to stay in the news. The work doesn't get done by running away from the responsibilities. Vote for the BJP so that I can sit across the table and talk to you; give me such a Government in Delhi. If you'll give me a Government that indulges in protests every day, they will not have a solution oriented approach. Tell me, hasn't the petrol prices come down? Are you not saving money?"

He appealed people to vote for progress and development. He said,"I run a Government on the agenda of progress. We have been hearing that poverty would be eradicated since we were kids. But those who were earlier in power here, their single point agenda was to grab an election win and do nothing for the masses."

Talking about the success of NDA-launched 'Jan Dhan Yojana' which ensured financial inclusion of the weaker sections of the society, he said, "I want to know if you have ever seen a poor in a bank? Even outside the bank? The poor did not even have the courage to stand outside a bank. Our Government made it possible. The country believes in truth. We launched the 'Jan Dhan Yojana'. We gave debit cards to the people. We gave an insurance of 1 lakh rupees each to the people. We did all of this without taking any money from the people."

Acknowledging the problem of traffic in Delhi, he said that BJP's Chief Ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi had expertise in this area and that she would definitely tackle this problem. The PM said,"I know that there's a traffic problem in this area. This is Kiran Ji's expertise. She will sort it out easily. People of Delhi can buy mobile phones. They can even purchase a small TV. But they can't make a house on their own. It's the dream of every Indian. Wherever there's a hut, there will be a 'pukka makaan'."

Highlighting the achievements of his Government in addressing the problems of the people of National Capital, the Prime Minister said,"If you remember, I had come here in the previous elections and I had solved your water problems. We had spoken to you in a Dwarka sabha and addressed your problem of shortage of water. Has the water not reached this part of the city?"

Delhi will vote on February 7 to elect a new Government. Elections became necessary here within little more than a year as the AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal first formed Government with outside support of his allegedly arch-rival Congress, and then left the office of Chief Minister in just 49-days to contest the May 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
