Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha and BJP leader Sushma Swaraj on Sunday appealed to the people to vote for the BJP to strengthen the hands of Narendra Modi.
Addressing an election rally at Dhaka High School playground in favour of party candidate Rama Devi from the Sheohar parliamentary constituency as well as the BJP candidate from Chiraiya Assembly segment, where bypoll is scheduled for May 7, Sushma said: “I have come here with a request to the people of this area to send Rama Devi to Parliament for the second time in order to strengthen the hands of Narendra Modi. The vote for the 16th Parliament in the country is not an ordinary election. Rather, it is to save this country from darkness, dejection and disappointment, which have surrounded us from all sides.”
In the presence of state BJP president Mangal Pandey, Sushma said: “Narendra Modi is the only ray of hope to relieve the country of the present crisis on every front for which the BJP should be given a period of 60 months to prove its worth.
She also urged the people to be a part of the present wave of change in the government under Narendra Modi. Price hike was the main reason behind corruption and it was shocking for the whole nation that a new scam was unearthed during every session of Parliament in the second innings of the UPA.
Speaking about the enormous hike in price of fertilisers, Sushma told the large number of farmers present in the rally that the BJP was always opposed to foreign direct investment for the interest of small traders in the country. The UPA government has also miserably failed in its commitment to the youths and could not provide them the job opportunities it had assured during the 2009 elections, she said.
Addressing another rally at Gopalganj, Sushma said the Congress misrule ruined the country.
“Cases of rape increased and no woman in the country was feeling safe under the regime. Only the BJP is capable of bringing hope, progress, happiness, prosperity and development and making India a super power,” Sushma said. She appealed to people to vote for BJP candidate from Gopalganj Janak Ram for a stable government at the Centre.
