NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday said the huge crowds at his election rallies were an indication of the "direction the wind is blowing" and appealed to voters to bring a stable BJP government in Delhi.

He also took a dig at surveys ahead of the Feb 7 polls that predicted the AAP having an advantage.

Addressing an election meeting in south Delhi's Ambedkar Nagar, Modi said that for a strong nation it was necessary to have a strong BJP government and appealed to voters not to give an "unstable" government to Delhi.

"I am seeing the huge crowd here. It is much bigger than when I would address rallies ahead of the general elections. It gives an indication of the direction the wind is blowing," he said.

Modi said his aim was to bring development to the country, and bring change to the lives of the poor in Delhi.

He said the "entire world now considers India as an important force, and it is happening because of your votes that brought the BJP with majority to the Centre".

He urged people to vote in the BJP with full majority in Delhi.

"Don't bring in an unstable government. It is the country's capital. Its fate should not be left hanging. Please vote for progress, vote for BJP," he said.

Taking a dig at the opposition parties, he said his opponents are troubled by him, because "they are not able to digest how Modi, a poor man, has come to be PM".

He said that in the last elections, surveys said he would lose by three lakh votes in Varanasi, but he won.
