Modi was addressing Vivekanand Youth Convention at Bhuj where he was accompanied by his mentor and former deputy prime minister L K Advani, who has roots in Kutch district.
This was Modi’s third rally in the region as part of his poll campaign, the first two being at Bhavnagar and Rajkot.
The 50,000-strong gathering mainly comprised college girls and boys from across Kutch district.
Attacking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Modi said, “Bangladeshis created trouble in Assam and put a question mark on the existence of this state. But PM, who represents Assam in Parliament, remained silent. And now he has brought FDI in retail, which will benefit only foreign companies.”
In his speech, Advani hailed Modi’s rule as “Ram Rajya”. “Ram Rajya was an ideal kingdom. And for Gujarat, we see everybody has nothing but appreciation to offer. Go anywhere in the world, people are appreciating the Gujarat government.”
Advani also recalled how his family had settled down in Adipur in Kutch after leaving Karachi during the Partition in 1947.
Catching them young
State govt to act as a guarantor for a student who seeks a bank loan.
Govt to give an additional Rs 1,500 per month to youngsters during their apprenticeship period. Currently, the amount is Rs 1,490.
Compare to the conditions of UPA or Its supporters from out side or being party to robe the nation, Modi's Gujarat is Ram Rajya.
Modi is playing to local gallery and poor Indians could fall for it. Stay with the PM. What ever said and done, MMS is one of the best prime minsters India had.
S&P has lowered the India's growth rate to 5.5%. Where as Gujrat clock around 13% per year.... That too considering that Modi has to arrange funds from the center again Congress. Yes he has a forgettable past... But so did Indira Gandhi had with Sikh killings.... And why not to question MMS for the recent killings in Assam ... He comes from that part... with more than 10 years Congress could not find any issue to speak against him... Hence its always Communal criticism... Sorry but people have grown and now they look forward from these issues... We need jobs, Money, social Equality and a better life... and Economic growth is the answer and has been the answer...
NM should be shot with shit. He has got nothing to say so digs up these issues. Nobody takes up the issue of his being a terrorist, when he killed so many innocent in Ahmedabad.The least he can do is respect another human being if not the post of the PM
When it comes to appeasing of foreign investors Modi fares better in comparison.Should grow in stature if at all he eyes the chair of PM, if ever.
