"Some people say that BJP's 14-year exile would end. The issue is not BJP's exile, but the 14-year exile of development of Uttar Pradesh," said Prime Minister Modi while addressing a 'Parivartan' rally in Lucknow.
Prime Minister Modi took everybody in loop by targeting each contesting party i.e. Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh elections, saying that all the parties have some or the other problem of their own and it is only the Bharatiya Janata Party which has come for the development of the state.
"People of Uttar Pradesh want 'Parivartan' which is certain. There are some groups the whereabouts of which are absolutely unknown in Uttar Pradesh. One group (Congress) is such where they have been trying to propose the son since 15 years but is unable to find the fault. Another group (BSP) is worried about money and is trying to search for banks in order to save their money. And there is one group (SP) which is solely concentrating on what will happen with the family. Now, the people of Uttar Pradesh have to decide that which group will be able to save Uttar Pradesh. BJP is the only party which has come to save Uttar Pradesh. Others have to either save money or family," he said.
