Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said he would end the gundaraj in Uttar Pradesh if the BJP is voted to power in the coming assembly elections early next year.
Due to foggy weather, Modi was unable to attend the public rally in the election-bound Uttar Pradesh at Bahraich. He addressed the crowd through phone.
“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.
“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 added.
While taking a dig at other political parties, Modi said ““They (SP and BSP) are seldom on the same page on an issue. But nowadays, they are speaking in one voice. I can’t understand the reason for their discomfort at the fight against black money.”
Modi has already addressed Parivartan rallies at Ghazipur, Agra, Kushinagar and Moradabad.
