Give me another term to finish incomplete work: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launched a blistering attack on Congress and other Mahagatbandhan leaders and sought another five-year term for his Government.

“If I have been able to contain terrorism or weed out corruption, it’s not because of Modi. It’s because of your vote. You voted for a majboot (strong) government. And it performed in a decisive manner,” said Modi while addressing an election rally in Gaya.

“Give me one more term as there are many unfinished tasks which need to be finished,” said Modi, addressing the gathering in the company of Bihar Chief Minister and JD (U) president Nitish Kumar. LJP chief and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan was also present on the occasion.

Slamming the Mahagatbandhan leaders for stitching opportunistic alliance, the Prime Minister said, “The ‘Maha-milawati’ neta (in apparent reference to Mahagatbandhan leaders) have joined hands because they have hatred for Modi and affection for terrorists. These people are speaking the language of Pakistan.”

Modi’s statements were largely repetitive as he harped on one hackneyed theme after another.

Prior to Modi’s speech, the crowd became so restive that police had to lathi-charge them after BJP supporters threw chairs on each other.

In Gaya, the BJP has denied Lok Sabha ticket to its sitting MP, Hari Manjhi, who had defeated Jitan Ram Manjhi, former Chief Minister, during 2014 Lok Sabha polls. The NDA has fielded Vijay Manjhi, the JD (U) nominee, for whom Modi flew down to the land of Buddha for canvassing. Vijay Manjhi is pitted against HAM president Jitan Ram Manjhi, who is the Mahagatbandhan nominee.

Earlier, Modi went to Jamui to campaign for Ram Vilas Paswan’s son Chirag Paswan, who is the LJP candidate from the Naxal-infested constituency. Incidentally, both the candidates for whom Modi campaigned on Tuesday were non-BJP leaders. Gaya and Jamui will go to polls in the first phase of election on April 11, along with two more constituencies in Bihar: Nawada and Aurangabad. All the four Lok Sabha seats are considered hard-core Naxalite belt as they share borders with Jharkhand.
