New Delhi: Addressing his first election rally in Sasaram district of poll-bound Bihar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit out at the Oppposition for promising that Article 370 will be restored if they come to power.

“These people say they will bring it back if they come to power. And after saying this, they dare to ask for votes from Bihar. Is this not an insult?” PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister castigated the Opposition for its audacity to ask for votes in Bihar elections, as thousands of families send their sons to protect the country’s borders.

“The whole country was waiting for years for removal of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, the NDA government took this decision. But today they are talking about reversing the decision, they say when they come to power Article 370 will again be enforced. Look at their audacity, even after saying all this they have the guts to ask for votes from Bihar residents,” PM Modi said at the rally in Sasaram.

“Is this not the insult of Bihar which sends its sons and daughters to the borders for the protection of the country? I want to clarify one thing to them from Bihar, the land of farmers and soldiers, they can take the help of whosoever they want but the country will not go back on its decisions, Bharat will not go back on its decisions,” he added.

PM Modi also blamed the Congress for creating unnecessary controversy over farm laws and said it was nothing more than an excuse to save the brokers and middlemen.

“Mandis and MSP are just excuses, the real motive is to save brokers and middlemen. Before Lok Sabha elections when money started getting deposited directly into farmers’ bank accounts then they spread confusion. When Rafale aircraft were purchased, then also they were speaking the language of brokers and middlemen,” he said.

Taking a jibe at RJD, PM Modi said that the ‘lalten’ (lantern, also RJD’s election symbol) era was gone.

“All NDA parties today are working together for making an Atmanirbhar, confident Bihar. Bihar still has miles to go on the path of development and has to fly towards touching new heights. The era of ‘lalten’ is gone. In the last six years consumption of electricity has increased 3 fold in Bihar,” PM Modi said.

“Voters of Bihar have taken a resolve that they won’t let those who have a history of making the state ‘Bimaru’ come near them,” he added.

PM Modi added that the results of almost all pre-poll surveys are suggesting that NDA will return to power in the state.
