Betul: BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Friday claimed that the polling held so far in the country has already decided the exit of the Congress-led UPA government from the Centre.

"Polling held so far has already decided the exit of Congress government from the Centre. Now in the remaining rounds, you will have to ensure that a strong BJP government comes to power in Delhi," Modi said here.

He was addressing a rally in support of Jyoti Dhurve, BJP candidate and sitting MP from Betul Lok Sabha seat.

Accusing Congress of pushing the country backwards in the last 60 years, Modi urged people to give him only sixty months to turn things around.

He blamed the "mother-son duo" (Sonia and Rahul Gandhi) for this situation and urged people to vote intelligently this time to give an opportunity to a "servant" instead of "rulers".

Quoting former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, who had once said that out of Re 1 that the Centre releases, only 15 paise reaches the beneficiaries, Modi said, "I want to ask the Congressmen where this money goes when Congress is in power in the country."

"In the last ten years, Congress has damaged India a lot and looted the country like anything," the Gujarat Chief Minister alleged.

Praising Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Modi said, "As Chouhan pulled Madhya Pradesh out of the list of BIMARU states and put it on the development path, it shows that BJP has potential to change the face of the country."
