    However the crux of the speech would be about the empowerment of the poor. Modi is likely to speak about opportunity and empowerment of the poor in a big way. He is likely to target the opposition on vote bank politics and also speak about how it did not benefit the needy one bit.

    Further one could also expect him to speak about the minority appeasement by the opposition parties. The PM would mention triple talaq and what his government had done about it while the opposition only believed in minority appeasement.
