CHANDIGARH: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday attacked the dynasty rule in Haryana and said time has come for the people of the state to get rid of corruption, nepotism and ‘gundashahi’.
While Congress chief Sonia Gandhi criticised both the BJP and INLD of making baseless promises to the people to grab power.
Addressing an election rally in Sirsa, Modi said, “In the last few years only a few families gained. Haryana got nothing. There is no solution except a stable government. Governments formed through bits and pieces can’t make a difference. Haryana’s ‘Jawan’ and ‘Kisan’ are our pride. We fulfilled our promise on One Rank One Pension in our first Budget. Free Haryana from the corruption and gundashahi.”
Taking a dig at the Congress and the INLD Modi said, “It’s right time to save Haryana from corruption and dynastic politics. I promise you the development which didn’t take place in 50 years. I will create a new model of state development for Haryana if the BJP comes to power in Haryana,” Modi said. “All poll surveys indicate that the BJP will form its government in the state. Some of them are saying that the BJP will form its government on its own while some others say that it will be the single largest party. Now decision is yours, the choice is yours. For swift development of Haryana, you have to elect the BJP with full majority,” he said.
Addressing a rally in Jind, Modi said, “Haryana has the worst sex ratio in the country. Out of the 15 districts with lowest sex ratio in the country, nine are in Haryana. Due to this, young men in Haryana cannot find enough girls to get married.”
“We have to end this era of crime. Youth from Haryana are migrating to other places. Women in Haryana feel insecure from local goons. This has to change,” Modi said.
He said crime and insecurity were issues which people were concerned about.
“People of the state will not forgive the looters of Haryana. Five families have ruled the state for past 25 years. Here, they have forged behind the scene alliances ahead of elections. They have decided amongst themselves that they will loot the state by turns,” he said.
Meanwhile Congress president Sonia Gandhi addressing a rally at Tohsam in Bhiwani said, “The Congress does not believe in false promises and people of Haryana are witnesses of development that has come under the Congress Government. The BJP has made many big promises that are almost impractical”.
She said, “During the Lok Sabha elections, they promised the moon, today they want to capture power in Haryana. Their sole aim is to find fault with others and crown themselves.”
“The Congress does not believe in making hollow promises. What we say, we fulfil with full dedication and honesty,” she said.
Taking shot at INLD supremo Om Parkash Chautala, she said, “Those who are sitting in jail are claiming to be the future CM of the state even though there was a ‘goonda raj’ and farmers suffered a lot in their tenure.”
