Lucknow, June 13: Stressing on development and eradication of corruption in Uttar Pradesh, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with BJP chief Amit Shah addressed a rally on Monday, June 13 at Allahabad.
Giving more priority on developing the state Modi said "development will gain momentum only when seeds of communalism, dynasty rule and corruption are rooted out."
Taking jibe at Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) in Uttar Pradesh, Modi said "caste politics is high in Uttar Pradesh. As Mayawati and Mulayam Singh have 'jugalbandi' (hand in glove), with each coming to power on alternative election seasons, caste politics and corruption is still a harsh reality. He also added that till this trend stops, development is a distant dream for UP.
"In Haryana, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and other BJP ruled states we have displayed zero tolerance for corruption and working hard towards developing the states and empowering youths". PM emphasized.
When Kalyan Singh, former Chief Minister of UP and Home Minister, Rajnath Singh served in UP, state developed greatly. Development is BJP's prime priority said PM.
"After BJP government came to power at centre, we have produced coal and generated electricity to provide to boost Rural India. Farmers have suffered more during Congress regime and now we will clean corruption in Uttar Pradesh too, Modi pointed.
Blaming Congress government Modi said "For the first time after Independence, most farmer friendly crop insurance scheme was initiated by our Government. We will not let farmer to suffer and we want the government money to be used in proper manner."
Questioning on Uttar Pradesh over utilization of money for development Modi said " Uttar Pradesh receives Rs 1 Lakh crore from the Centre, but don't know if it reaches the people here."
Development is party's sole agenda assured Modi to Uttar Pradesh citizens. Uttar Pradesh people have always supported, that is the key reason we (BJP) came to power with majority of votes in 2014 general elections.
