Mahendergarh: Promising to transform "scam Haryana to skill Haryana", Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday asked the people of the state to elect a BJP government with clear majority, saying he wants to strengthen the state's ties with Delhi to transform its fortunes.
"I know that you are sad that Haryana is known as a state of scams. There are scams and then scams within scams. Our opponents are all involved in scams. Do you want a scam Haryana? I want to create a skill Haryana. You have to decide if you want a scam Haryana or a skill Haryana," he said.
"If dynastic politics continues, would your fortunes change? If Haryana has to live with dignity, we need it to be freed from dynastic politics. For the last 25 years, four-five families have controlled Haryana and the common man's life has become difficult.
Modi said the opposition and former ally Shiv Sena, which had accused him of leaving work in Delhi and concentrating on election rallies, are "crying" because of the massive public wave he is generating.
He also attacked INLD chief Om Prakash Chautala for his reported remarks that he will run the Haryana government from inside the Tihar jail.
Modi asked voters in Haryana to give his party, the BJP, a clear majority in the state election next week. "I want a Team India where the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister work together. Do you want to elect a government that feels like vomiting on hearing about the central (BJP) government?" Mr Modi asked at a public meeting.
BJP's ally till last month, the Shiv Sena has advised Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "indulge in Maharashtra politics later" and focus his attention on the escalating cross-border attacks by Pakistan.
"Are we going to give Pakistan a befitting reply or just count the bodies of our soldiers? You can indulge in Maharashtra politics later on as well PM Modi, right now it is important to focus on what's happening at the border," the Sena said in this morning's edition of its mouthpiece, the Saamna.
