Pune: In what could possibly instill fear among the political parties in Maharashtra after 'Modi wave' swept the nation in 2014 LS polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday indicated that the same wave may sweep the state's Assembly elections.

Modi took to Twitter and said that the way his rallies in Nashik, Nagpur, Dhule, Jalgaon, Buldhana got an outstanding response, it clearly shows where the wind is blowing across Maharashtra.

He further added that on October 15, people of Maharashtra will reject corruption and misgovernance going on for the past one and a half decades. 

"The governments in Maharashtra did not spare anything and anybody from corruption. They snatched away the food from the platters of children who were supposed to get it under the mid-day meal scheme, they left the farms thirsty and took away electricity meant for farmers," he said during his rally in the state.

Modi said years of neglect by the state government had led to large-scale migration of the youth from villages to large cities and towns in search of jobs.

"I know what poverty is, the pain one feels when one does not have money to buy medicine for an ailing mother....I want that the youth does not have to leave their old parents, their villages, their farms behind and go looking for jobs in cities," he said.

The Prime Minister said he wanted the spirit of "Team India" to define Centre-State relations.

"I want the spirit of Team India to define Centre-State relations. Prime Minister and Chief Ministers should work as a team and the voices from the states are heard....I want the journey of development to be like that," he said.

"If a non-BJP state government stands with the Centre, then it is one plus one, that is two. But if another BJP state government is there, the total will be one plus one, that is eleven," he said.

The Prime Minister said his government was aiming at housing for all by 2022.
