Modi vows to end ‘gundaraj’ in Uttar Pradesh

Written by | December 11, 2016 | 0

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party in Uttar Pradesh and said people in the state were fed up with ‘gundaraj’ (lawlessness).

Addressing a ‘Parivartan Rally’ (transformation rally) at Bahraich through mobile phone, Modi said he would end the ‘gundaraj’ in the state if his Bharatiya Janata Party was voted to power in the coming Assembly elections.

Uttar Pradesh, with 404 Assembly seats, will go to polls early next year. The BJP, which has 41 seats, is way behind the ruling SP (229) and the opposition BSP (81) in the state, but hopes to make considerable progress in the coming elections riding on the Modi wave.

“Today there is gundaraj in the state. Everyone is fed up of this lawlessness. Even the police is unable to stop the ‘gundas’ (goons),” Modi said. The prime minister, who was scheduled to address the rally at 1.00 pm, did it through the mobile phone at 3.00 pm as his helicopter could not land due to bad weather.

“If you have to take your state forward, you will have to throw out those backing these gundas. And the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will do that,” he said in a direct attack on the SP.
