Prime minister sells the idea of development and progress for the youth
GN Bureau | October 8, 2015
Prime minister Narendra Modi today did not mince his words and launched a direct attack on Lalu Prasad Yadav in his election rallies in Bihar. “ I'm amazed at Lalu Ji. His dialogues in 1990s and those now are the same. No new ideas.” Modi said on Thursday.
"For the first time, the Bihar polls are based on the idea of development and progress for the youth," he said while asserting that the youth of Bihar will make the right decision this time.
Modi hit out at Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav, saying the former Bihar chief minister has insulted the Yadav community.
"The elections come and go, but it is the people that stay with you. Lalu Prasad Yadav has insulted the Yadav community by commenting about what they eat. In this election, there is 'jungle raj' on one side and 'vikas raj' on the other," Modi said.
"No one wants 'jungle raj' again. There have been around 4,000 incidents of kidnapping in Bihar under the 'jungle raj'," he added.
After addressing four rallies in Begusarai, Nawada, Samastipur and Munger districts, Modi is scheduled to stay at the Raj Bhavan in Patna on Thursday night. The prime minister will address two more rallies in Sasaram and Aurangabad on Friday.
