Modi says he's original Dwarkawasi

Tries to woo Poorvanchalis

“I am a Poorvanchali as I am an MP from Banaras that has a sizeable Poorvanchali population. I am here because I want to serve the community,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a rally in Dwarka on Sunday to connect to the Poorvanchalis here.

“Let me tell you people that I am also an original Dwarkawasi,” added Modi, referring to the Dwarka district in Gujarat.


The Prime Minister appealed to people to bring the Bharatiya Janata Party in power if they want to see development in the city at par with other states across the country. “Before voting please see the track record of the BJP-ruled states like Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh and then decide which party to vote for,” he said.


Without naming the Aam Aadmi Party, Modi warned the electorate “not to vote for the party which only knows to sit on dharnas”. The PM also lashed out at the Congress by saying that, “Two such political parties are contesting elections who had joined hands behind the curtains to form the government last year and in these Assembly elections they have started mudslinging on each other.”

“Their sole purpose is to be in news. They will say something sensational about each other to be on TV 24x7 thats all they can do – tell lies and do dharnas,” Modi said.

The Prime Minister said that Delhi needs a sensible and responsible government. “A government that can address the problems here like adequate supply of water. Previous government in Delhi played politics over the issue of sharing water with Haryana,” he added.

“During the UPA government there was no coordination between the Congress government in Delhi and Congress government in Haryana, therefore they could not solve water crisis here in Dwarka,” Modi said. Now, the Central government in coordination with the Haryana government will solve Delhi’s water problem, he added.

“I feel lucky to have got the support of so many people in the national capital. Delhi has given me seven MPs. Now I want poorna bahumat (full majority). If that happens what else do I need?” Modi said.

The Prime Minister said that the panacea for all problems is development. “If development takes place, jobs will be created and more children can go to schools. People have supported me to form the government. Now it’s my time to pay you back with interest. I have to carry out development,” Modi said.

“Till now have you ever seen a poor person in a bank or with a bank account. We have made it a reality with our Jan Dhan Yojana. We have given the poor access to banks,” he added. “So vote for BJP and bring the party to power with full majority in Delhi as well.”

Chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi, Delhi BJP unit head Satish Upadhyay, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the South Corporation Subhash Arya, among others were also present.
