Raipur: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh on Thursday addressed two public gatherings in Bastar region, the tribal heartland, and appealed people to vote BJP to power for the third time.
Singh also made a pitch for BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, saying that by electing him as the next PM people should send a clear message to Congress that they will not tolerate it anymore.
People of the state had elected BJP twice and once again they will show faith in the party due to its development record, he said.
It is the trust of the people which forms the government and Congress-led UPA at the Centre had "broken" the faith of people, he said.
Singh addressed rallies at Chhindgarh in Sukma district and Kuakonda in Dantewada in southern Bastar. Chhattisgarh had got rid of hunger and migration, he said, claiming that nobody worries about two meals a day as his government had introduced food security bill.
Bastar was neglected for 60 years during Congress`s rule but the picture changed completely in ten years of BJP regime, he added.
"For changing the destiny and face of the country Modi should be made the next Prime Minister," he said. As many as 18 constituencies of south Chhattisgarh will go to polls on November 11.
