Narendra Modi campaigns in Himachal Pradesh, mocks PM as 'Maun-mohan'

Mandi: Raising the campaign heat in the wake of upcoming Assembly Elections in Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Monday hit out directly at PM Manmohan Singh, calling him “Maun-mohan Singh”.

The Gujarat CM further slammed the UPA government’s “insensitivity towards aam aadmi”.

Addressing an election rally in Mandi district, Modi started by mocking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who had yesterday addressed a rally at Una district in Himachal Pradesh.

Modi said, “Today’s biggest news is that ‘Maun-mohan’ Singh broke his maun (silence)”.

Modi was referring to PM’s Sunday campaign rally in Una district, where he had slammed the BJP, saying that the saffron party has not done much for the state.

“In last eight years whatever development work has taken place here is all due to the financial support provided by the UPA government”, PM had said.

Slamming the UPA government for inflation and cap on LPG cylinders, Modi came down heavily upon Congress, saying, “Has the PM said a single word about price rise? Shouldn’t he apologise?”

Slamming the limit on LPG cylinders, Modi blamed the UPA government for “snatching the cylinders” from aam aadmi and reasoned that “in a cold state like Himachal Pradesh, one needs to heat the food items again and again” which further increases the need for subsidised gas cylinders.

Hailing Himachal CM Prem Kumar Dhumal, Modi said that had he been a Himachal resident, he would have voted for Modi.

“Dhumal ji has done a wonderful job by promising free chulhas (gas ovens) for its people… this chulha will burn the Congress party to ashes”, Modi roared.

Citing the example of Gujarat which he said was “a role model for development”, Modi said Himachal Pradesh too will shine like Gujarat if people voted for the BJP.

“I pray to the people of Himachal Pradesh to choose the BJP, and I promise as much development here as in Gujarat. Himachal Pradesh too can show the same development that Gujarat has shown”, Narendra Modi said.

Modi didn’t spare the newly-appointed Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid, saying that the Congress promoted Khurshid despite the allegations of corruption against him.

“The country was seething in anger after the allegations against Salman Khurshid...but he got a promotion”, Narendra Modi said.

Even though his own state is scheduled to go to polls next month, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today joined Himachal Pradesh election campaign.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh started the Himachal Pradesh campaign.

Having completed the first stage of campaign in his very own poll-bound state Gujarat, Modi is in Himachal to raise the election campaign pitch, as he has in past been instrumental behind the rise of PK Dhumal in Himachal in late nineties.

Himachal Pradesh is set to go to the polls on November 04 for 68 Assembly seats.

Maun-Mohan is the correct suitable name for our PM. After hearing all the corruptions, he is still in moun (silent). So let us change his name as Moun-Mohan singh.

Modi Bhai .... Dont praise Dhumal too much ... Agreed that he is your protege but Dhumal is very corrupt to the core.... His corruption is just like that of Congress .... He is the CM ... His son is the MP... His son`s Father in Law is MLA and PWD mnister .... This is nothing but loooooot.... Beware of praising this Dhumal

Mr.Modi campaigning for his party BJP will yield more fruits for Mr.Dhumal. BJP is sure to install next Government in HP as congress is surrounded by its corrupted chief Mr.VB Singh, whose corruption has been proved prima facia and no body from the congress has came to defend him. Even the stalwarts in congress are annoyed with the corruption of Raja and they have reconciled with the idea that they are sailing in the broken vessel. Congress should at least change the name of PCC chief from Raja ji to Kaul Singh, who exert lot of influence on voters.

In FDI, too, Gujarat has not been a leading state. During 2006-10, Gujarat signed MoUs worth Rs 5.35 lakh crore with potential of 6.47 lakh jobs. But Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu with Rs 4.20 lakh crore and Rs 1.63 lakh crore worth MoUs, expect about 8.63 lakh and 13.09 lakh jobs. To top it all, Chhattisgarh and Orissa have signed MoUs worth Rs 3.61 lakh crore and Rs 2.99 lakh crore more than Gujarat without much fanfare and Modi`s much-hyped industrial summits.

During 1995-2000 and 2001-10, Gujarat increased its annual rate of growth from 8.01% to 8.68%. But so is the case with other major states such as Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Maharashtra, Punjab, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh. In fact, Gujarat was ranked second after Rajasthan (8.34%) in the first period and third after Uttarakhand (11.81%) and Haryana (8.95%) in the second period. What is remarkable, Bihar and Orissa, the two most backward and poverty-stricken states, have also shown growth pick up from 4.70% and 4.42% in the first period to 8.02% and 8.13% in the second period. Even smaller states like Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh have registered growth of 11.01% and 8.96%, respectively.
