Punish those who ruined Bihar: Modi tells voters

Sasaram (Bihar): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that Bihar voters have made up their mind to punish those who ruined the state.

Modi said that for the first time the Bihar assembly election is based on the idea of development.

“The voters have made up their mind to punish those who ruined Bihar. You are India’s SC, Bihar’s lawmakers. You are the ones who have to punish the people who have wronged Bihar,” Modi said while addressing a rally in Bihar’s Sasaram town, district headquarters of Rohtas.

The prime minister will address one more rally in Aurangabad district on Friday afternoon. The first phase of voting takes place on Monday.

Modi had addressed four rallies in Bihar on Thursday, including at Munger, Samastipur, Begusarai and Nawada districts. He sought support for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)led NDA in the state polls.

Modi, who described the grand alliance of JD-U, RJD and Congress as “Maha Swarthbandhan” on Thursday, asked what those three parties did for Bihar.

“Now Bihar needs ‘Vikaas Raj‘, not ‘Jungle Raj‘,” Modi said.

He targeted Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, saying his arrogance has led to the current state of Bihar.

Modi also criticised the RJD chief, saying: “Laluji wants to run Bihar through a remote.”

He urged the people to ask why Lalu Prasad is not fighting the elections this time.
