BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is upbeat at the high voter turnout in the first three phases of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls so far and interpreted it as a sign for a ‘thumping victory’ for the party.
Addressing the first 3-D holographic rally in 106 places across the country, including one at Malleswaram Grounds in Bangalore, Modi said people are tired of UPA’s failures and have made up their mind to end this bad regime. “This is an election to build a strong India that will emerge as a super power in the coming days. The verdict has been delivered. It is seen in the high percentage of voting so far, which means people are thirsting for change,” Modi said.
Appreciating the party cadre and youths who made it possible for him to address rallies simultaneously using this technology, he said BJP is committed to making best use of the country’s talent and its technological prowess to usher in a digital revolution. Continuing his attack on the nearly 60-year rule of Congress-led political combinations, Modi said the Congress has failed to provide quality education and health. Modi assured that BJP will implement its promise to raise the quality of education in government schools and services in government hospitals in participation with the private sector.
He expressed concern over the high rate of infant and maternal mortality and said providing nutritious food to poor children would be taken up on a mission mode if the BJP is voted to power. On over-crowded Indian cities, where civic amenities are abysmally lacking, he presented his plan for developing 500 cities and towns in the country with modern solid waste management technology and waste water treatment systems that would make the cities clean and also help the farmers on the outskirts of these cities.Modi underlined the 3D strength of India — demography, democracy and demand — and said he would make optimum utilisation of this 3D factor to propel India to the position of a super power.
Filmy Style Entry
The first 3D virtual rally of Modi had all the trappings of a movie superstar as his show went on screen in 106 centres simultaneously, which he claimed is a Guinness record.He made a grand entry on the screen with the song Yeh Desh Nahin Jhukne Walah Hain playing in the background. His entry was greeted with loud cheers and lusty whistles, just like movie front benchers do in theatres. Taking his now too familiar pauses to sip water and allow a few seconds for the gathering to express its feelings, Modi exhibited his skills in making his virtual presence as real as possible.
