Mumbai, Oct. 9 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that ensuring a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) victory in the upcoming Maharashtra Assembly elections would mark an end to the ‘demonic’ traditions in the state.
“October 15 is the chance for Maharashtra to wash away the sins that are being committed by the ruling party of the state government for the past fifteen years. Making the BJP win will mark the end of demonic traditions and ideologies in the state,” the Prime Minister said, while addressing a rally here.
“I want to assure you that the new state government will be committed to make all your dreams come true. Mumbai is mini-India; it can be the skill capital of India. Once I take a resolution I make sure that I achieve it. I have a vision of urban development; I want such clean cities that one would not be able to find dirt even if they look for it,” he added.
“We have brought down inflation to a great extent and I promise you that it will go down even further. Political pundits used say before the elections that nobody knows me outside Gujarat and the BJP took a huge risk. Today, the world knows Modi,” Prime Minister Modi further said.
Speaking on the issue ceasefire violations by Pakistan, the Prime Minister said that the Indian army is giving a befitting reply to them at the border.
“When the Mumbai attacks took place, we said that it was not an attack on Mumbai but on India. We never politicized that issue. Similarly, when Pakistan is violating ceasefires at the border, should I give them a reply or should the army give them a reply by using guns?” Prime Minister Modi asked.
Earlier, Prime Minister Modi paid tribute to Chhatrapati Shivaji and Dr. B R Ambedkar in the city.
Maharashtra will go to polls on October 15. The counting of votes will take place on October 19. (ANI)
