Free Jharkhand from instability: Modi appeals to people

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday asked the voters of Jharkhand to enable BJP secure a majority in the Assembly elections for political stability.

Chaibasa (Jharkhand): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday asked the voters of Jharkhand to enable BJP secure a majority in the Assembly elections for political stability.

Modi told an election meeting at Chiabasa that Jharkhand is blessed with abundant mineral and natural resources, yet the people are poor because of political instability.

Modi asked the voters not to give a fractured mandate as people know the difficulties of coalition politics and promised that the party would utilise the state's resources for developing the state.

"Have faith in Chaiwala (tea seller) and give majority to BJP (to form a government)," he said promising to develop the state like the BJP-ruled states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhatisgarh.

He claimed that if tribals loved any party it was the BJP as they prospered in BJP-ruled states.

Appealing to the voters of 14 assembly segments of Kolhan Division with all the party candidates being present here, the Prime Minister said, "I do not talk big like the previous government (at the Centre), but I do small things for the benefit of the poor and the downtrodden."

Thirteen out of 14 seats in Kolhan are going for second phase polling in the state on December 2.

Modi also asked the people to vote out the politics of dynasty and nepotism and usher in development for Jharkhand, which he said had the potential to become a number one state in the country.
