BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s accusation charges against Congress continued for the second consecutive day. Modi addressed huge rallies in a row at Sriganganagar, Pilibanga, Khetri and Bikaner.

Huge crowds were applauding as Modi bursting at chief minister Ashok Gehlot for lack of development in the state. The administration despite taking strict measures faced sea of people struggling to enter the venues of his rallies on Monday. Many were denied entry by the police due to huge turnout.

At his Bikaner rally, Modi began his speech by paying rich tribute to late BJP legislator Nand Lal Vyas, a masterstroke that immediately connected him with the crowd.

The Gujarat chief minister launched an attack on Gehlot, claiming that a person against whom the Supreme Court, high court and state governor have passed unflattering remarks has no right to talk about development model and welfare measures.

“Gehlot should visit Gujarat to see the real developmental model there. I am inviting him to Gujarat. The Rajasthan CM will be free after December 8 anyway,” a confident Modi said.

Modi said his government has built a ‘War Memorial’ at Kutch to honour the brave soldiers. He accused the Rajasthan government of not doing anything to remember the sacrifices of soldiers despite some of its districts on the Indo-Pak border.

He alleged that the Congress-led government at the Centre has failed to protect the honour of Indian soldiers who were beheaded by Pakistani soldiers. Despite a large number of youths from Jhunjhunu opting for Armed Forces, the governments at the state and Centre have made no effort to open an Army school in the district.

Taking a dig at Congress’ pro-poor stance, he said, “It is just like students who do nothing during the year and pray to God ahead of exams.”

In Khetri, Modi alleged that development in the state has come to a standstill under the Ashok Gehlot government regime. He criticized Gehlot for not giving impetus to the tourism sector which has been hit due to poor governance.

“Due to poor policies of the Gehlot government, number of tourists visiting the state is decreasing every day,” he claimed.
