Varanasi, Mar 23: In an effort to gain momentum for the Uttar Pardesh abd Bihar Assembly elections, BJP party president Amit Shah on Sunday sought to ensure the support of Other Backward Communities.

Addressed a rally in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's parliamentary constituency Varanasi, Shah pitched for the welfare of backward sections of society and asked people to give the BJP a clear mandate in the 2017 Assembly elections as they had done in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

Bihar and Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections are scheduled in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

He also that the Modi knows the pain of poor, as he is from a humble background.

'Our Prime Minister is a person who had faced poverty in his life and sold tea. He understand the plight of poor. Our party respects backwards, most-backwards and the dalit communities," Shah said.

"Modi is a poor man like you people. This is the reason he started the ‘Jan Dhan Yojana', to make a poor person rich. How can someone be rich if they don't have a bank account?" he asked.

Taking a dig at Samajwadi party, Shah said that despite reservation policy, only one caste (hinting at Yadavs) is getting all the benefits extended to the Backward Castes.

Shah said the NDA government wants to bring change in the country and Modi is striving for it.
