Ghazipur: Each vote cast in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections will take the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to record victory, asserted Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday while stating that the people in the state will give a befitting reply to “Pariwarwadi (dynastic)” parties.
Addressing a public rally in Ghazipur in UP, PM Modi exuded confidence in the BJP’s win in the state polls, saying that every vote will take the party towards victory. “Each and every vote will take us to record victory in the Assembly elections. It will give us new energy to work for the development and growth of the state. Each vote will give a befitting reply to ‘Pariwarwadi’ parties,” the Prime Minister said.
PM Modi also said that “Pariwarwadi” parties had changed the identity of the state due to their self-serving politics. These Assembly elections give the opportunity to the people to punish such political dynast, added PM Modi.
“These ‘Pariwarwadi’ parties had changed the identity of the state for their self-serving politics. Uttar Pradesh had become famous for mafias and ‘Bahubalis (musclemen)’ when they ruled the state. This election gives you a chance to punish them,” PM Modi further said.
Uttar Pradesh will go to the sixth phase of the polling tomorrow in the ongoing state Assembly elections, determining the fate of 676 candidates, including Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in 57 Assembly seats spread across 10 districts of the state.
