Lohardaga: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that since the opposition has realised their defeat after the third phase of elections in the country which concluded yesterday, therefore, they have now started blaming the EVM.
Addressing an election rally in Lohardaga here he said that after the three phases of polling opposition does not have any option but to accept defeat. He said that the opposition has realized their defeat but still after the end of the second phase they were still putting up their smiling faces.
“However After the third face the opposition as realised that Phir Ek Baar Modi Sarkar,” he said adding that opposition has the habit of giving ‘Gaali (foul words) to Modi which they cannot leave therefore they have turned the mouth of the tanks towards the EVMs and are now holding the EVM responsible for their defeat. Taking swipe at the leaders of the opposition who were now blaming the EVMs he said that their acts were like similar to the student who makes a fuss of different issues including pen not working, not proper desk and chair, answer sheet given late for his poor exams results and creates such an atmosphere that even his parents believe him when
the results are out. “What can the EVM do when the people are showing so much love to their chowkidaar,” he said adding that the people of country do not want to waste their votes on the opposition and parties which are
part of Mahamilawat. He said that such people who see themselves as Prime Minister candidates in the coalition and those who are not capable to even save their seats in the Assembly are now blaming the EVM for the ensuing defeat.
The Prime Minister said that he was astonished by the turnout of the people in Ranchi who had lined up from the airport to the Birsa Chowk during the road show which was actually planned just two days before and even when he moved in his car from the Birsa Chowk to Raj Bhawan he saw people lined up all the way to the nine kilometres distance and not a single inch of space was left.
He said that seeing the response of the people it is clear as to where the wind was blowing and what is called a wave. Mr Modi said that as a Prime Minister he has visited Jharkhand on many occasions but has never seen such huge crowd turn outs and enthused by the crowd he coined the slogan of “Lehar Nahi Lalkar Phir Ek Baar Modi Sarkar,” he said adding that those who have eye on the throne of Delhi are now in panic. He said that people vote to make the nation strong and developed and take on the challenges which have been created by the Congress. Mr Modi said that a strong government is able to effectively tackle the problems of maoism and terrorism.
He said that in Jharkhand also people were scared to leave their homes after dusk however with a strong government in power the issue has been effectively dealt with and now the number of districts hit with Maoist menace is now decreasing. Even a large number of tribal youths are now giving up their arms and joining in large numbers in the development process, Mr Modi said. He said that experts on internal security making comments in New Delhi do not want to see the development taking place in the villages and forests. Those who were also present on the occasion included Chief Minister Raghubar Das, BJP candidate from Khunti Arjun Munda, Lohardaga nominee Sudarshan Bahgat, Chatra candidate Sunil Singh, AJSU supremo Sudesh Kumar Mahto, LJP president Birendra Pradhan, Lok Sabha polls incharge for Jharkhand BJP Mangal Pandey etc.
