In Jai Ho, Salman Khan had urged every person who has received help in difficult situations to in turn help three others.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday went two up on Salman, urging every BJP worker to download his NaMo app and in turn ensure that five more persons do the same.

In a video chat on the app with BJP workers from five Lok Sabha constituencies spread across five states, Modi tasked them with meeting people to expose the “opportunistic” Opposition alliance that is in the works and stress the importance of a “mazboot (strong)” government at the Centre.

The five constituencies are in poll-bound Chhattisgarh, Madha Pradesh and Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh and Karnataka.

“Can you do one thing for me?” Modi asked party workers from the Raipur Lok Sabha seat in Chhattisgarh.

As the workers replied “yes”, Modi said: “Give your feedback on the NaMo app in the next 24 hours on the issues we discussed today. In addition, each of you get five more people to download the app and give their feedback.”

The Prime Minister pilloried the Opposition for trying to unite for the 2019 general election.

“Go and tell the people about their (the Opposition’s) character, how they are joining hands to save themselves. Their alliance is for a ‘majboor sarkar (helpless government)’, not a ‘mazboot sarkar (strong government)’,” he said.

Modi asked the BJP workers to make it a habit to visit the NaMo App every day to equip themselves with news on the government’s development work for the people.
