Ballia/Kushinagar: Narendra Modi on Saturday wrapped up his long election campaign addressing a series of rallies in eastern Uttar Pradesh during which he claimed that Congress would not even open its account in some states and many of its leaders will lose.

Ending his campaign at a rally in Ballia, the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate also said that directly and through 3D video links he has set a record of sorts in getting connected with the people and that it should be included in the Guinness World Records.

Modi said that the elections in a manner have brought a spark of change for `surajya`(good governance) and it would be achieved.

Recalling Bal Gangadhar Tilak`s iconic slogan "Swaraj hamara janmsiddh adhikar hai aur hum isko lakar rahenge"( "Swaraj is my birthright, and I shall have it"), Modi reiterated that it (surajya) was the right of the people.

In Kushinagar , he blamed Congress for the problems faced in the country.

"In this elections, it (Congress) would not be able to open its account in some states and many of its stalwarts would not be able to see the face of Lok Sabha.
"In any of the states in the country, Congress would not be able to cross the tally of nine ... SP and BSP would also not achieve more than nine seats", he said, adding that "neither the mother would be able to save the son nor the son save the mother.. They would be wiped out also in Rae Bareli and Amethi".

Attacking Congress, Modi said, "Madam Sonia came here and abused Modi. The dirty tricks department of Congress every evening sits and decides which new abuse has to be served today ..There is a manufacturing factory within the Congress for creating fake charges and new abuses for Modi".

"There is a government of `mother and son` in Delhi since the past ten years.. There had not been a day when there was not a conspiracy hatched to put Modi in jail and still Modi is troubling you as you have not been able to harm him even an iota", he said, adding that "Modi is working on the basis of truth and you (Sonia) in Kushinagar say that Modi has `neech soonch".

He further said "Madam Sonia ..Open your ears and listen the more you and your son indulge in mud slinging the more this lotus would bloom".

Modi said that it is his good fortune that after embarking on the long campaign with a visit to Vaishno Devi shrine in Jammu on March 26 he was ending it in Ballia, which is home to Mangal Pandey, the first martyr of 1857 revolt.

The Gujarat Chief Minister claimed to have covered over three lakh kilometres during his campaign and had addressed rallies and public meetings that could be seen at 5,800 places.
On Japanese encephalitis, Modi slammed the media. He said that the media, which shows direct telecast when a child falls into a borewell, remains silent on this important issue.

In Naxal-affected Sonebhadra, Modi exhorted the youth to shun the path of violence and hold pen in their hands and `hal` (plough) on their shoulders instead of guns in everyone interest.

Modi said that he addressed 450 election rallies in the campaign and through the arrangements of the party got connected with the voters of 5,800 places and reached lakhs of villages through television and Internet.
