Modi lays out BJP's vision for India

Addresses rallies in Davangere, Mangalore; touches on issues of areca growers, fishermen.

BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi tore into the Congress on Tuesday at the twin BJP rallies in the State, while unveiling his roadmap for India if the party came to power.

Better marketing facilities for farm produce, interlinking of rivers to provide impetus to irrigation and 24-hour power supply to run pumpsets were among his promises for the agrarian community. Inclusive growth and overall development of the nation were the highlights of his vision for the future.

Addressing over one lakh people at the high school grounds in Davangere, he blamed the Congress for the Andhra Pradesh imbroglio due to its “divisive agenda” and mocked it for the ills that the country is facing. 

Overthrowing Congress in all states completely is the only solution to eradicate corruption, he said.

In Mangalore, the Gujarat chief minister played the local card by highlighting the issues such as the woes of the arecanut growers and those of the fishermen and explained how the tourism potential of the coastal belt could be honed.

Ridiculing the Congress for its lack of vision in every sphere, the saffron party’s poster boy termed the last decade the worst the country had witnessed since Independence.
Stressing the need for a holistic plan for coastal development, he said that as south Karnataka is fast growing (urbanisation), there is a need to have a proper vision.
“Delhi thinks urbanisation is a problem, but the BJP thinks it is an opportunity,” he said. Modi highlighted the need to replace the low-end ‘soch’ (thinking) of the Congress with the high-end ‘soch’ of the BJP.

“If very small nations like Korea, Taiwan and Bangladesh can capture the readymade garments market, why cannot India produce zero-defect manufacturing,” he asked.
Referring to the ‘pepper spray’ incident in Parliament, Modi said that hitherto people were not aware of the multi-use of pepper as they thought it was only exported and came in handy in the kitchen. He said that the Congress goes on spraying pepper so that people cover their eyes and are not able to see its misdeeds.
