After filing his nomination in Varanasi on Thursday BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi promised the comprehensive development of flood-prone Mithilanchal area of north Bihar during a series of meetings in north Bihar.
“We will complete former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s dream project of inter-linking of rivers for development of the region,” Modi said.
“Atalji had conceived projects like inter-linking of rivers and construction of mega bridge for development of the Koshi and Mithilanchal regions of which only the bridge could see the light of the day,” Modi told the crowd assembled to hear him.
He assured that if the NDA is elected to power the interlinking of rivers in Mithilanchal and Kosi region would be completed on a priority basis. Lamenting about the Congress Government’s failure in improving the lives of people in the area, even after being in power for so many years, he asked the people to vote for the NDA candidate so that a decisive and strong government can be formed at the Centre.
He also promised a rail bridge in this area for better communication. Addressing election meetings at Saharsa, Madhubani and Darbhanga districts he also asserted that people of the country had already laid the foundation for a new NDA government by replacing the Congress-led UPA.
