"Our police forces asked for a memorial to remember the lost heroes, but they did not listen. Unlike the UPA government, our government when came to power, we built a magnificent police memorial in Delhi," said Modi.
Very few people are aware that 33 thousand police personnel have lost their lives while serving people in our country. However, Congress never paid attention to their sacrifice.
Attacking Congress government, Modi said that previous governments went slow on Mumbai's crucial infrastructure projects.
PM Modi quipped that Mumbai will soon boast of a 275 km Metro network considering the current speed of work
The country’s youth looks toward 2047, not 1947 when the country will complete 100 years of independence. Parties and leaders with thinking still stuck in the last century cannot understand the aspirations of the youth of 21st century,” he said.
Thanking the people PM Modi, said, "I want to thank the middle class of this country. With your support, your chowkidaar has been able to work towards the empowerment of poor and infrastructure development."
He also said that under his rule, the elections and IPL are conducted simultaneously. Moreover, Ramzan festivities are also going smoothly.
Speaking at the rally Narendra Modi claimed that under the Congress government in 2009 and 2014, the government was unable to hold both Indian Premier League (IPL) and elections at the same time. They cited it as due to security concerns.
Modi said, "This election is not just for choosing a government, it is an election to decide the direction of India. This is not a election of vikalp, but of sankalp. This is to strengthen the poor and not the fake 'Garibi Hatao' promise... The Opposition is afraid of the wave in the country."
PM Modi says, "After independence, the Congress got the least number of seats in 2014. In 2019, Congress is fighting on the least number of seats. They're not even visible anywhere and they feel that if they appear on TV then people will vote for them. The strategy and politics of Congress are stuck in the past."
"In all the surveys in that country, it is discussed that if Congress will cross at least reach 50 seats or get fewer seats," Narendra Modi said.
"Terrorists had attacked Mumbai several times under the Congress government. But Congress government would just change ministers, give statements and go to sleep... I am the son of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. We have made it clear that we will kill the terrorists by entering their homes. We changed culture of changing chief minister and home minister after terror attacks," Narendra Modi said.
Narendra Modi says, "People have full confidence in me and they know that only I can end terrorism. So I appeal to you to vote in favor of NDA."
