Kendrapara, April 23 (LocalWire): Modi urged the people of Odisha to bring a change in governance in the state by voting for the BJP so that it can work in tandem with the Centre. He asked them to press the lotus symbol with both hands, one for the Lok Sabha polls and the other for Assembly polls, while addressing a rally here on Tuesday.
‘BJD is only bothered about grabbing power; development has never figured in its list of priorities. The people of Odisha will bid the BJD government farewell since they are wiser than the politicians who have been ruling the state. Naveen babu, it’s time for you to go,’ Modi added slamming Naveen Patnaik and his ruling party over rising poll violence.
Modi arrived at Kendrapara from Ahmedabad where he cast his vote and said there is a saffron wave that is surging across the country which will be impossible for the Opposition to tide across.
He also claimed that the response from the first two phases of the elections indicate that people are favouring the BJP.
Emphasising that the BJP-led government did not face a single corruption charge in the past five years, the Prime Minister said those who have been levelling false allegations have found themselves in the dock.
‘Voters are now teaching those liars a lesson. The Congress and other Opposition parties are in shock. They are trying to find new excuses to target and abuse me,’ the PM said.
