Muzaffarpur: The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is set to expand further, BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi said here today.
Addressing a huge election rally here, Modi, who began his speech in Bhojpuri, said more political parties would join the NDA after LJP leader Ram Vilas Paswan decided to return to the NDA’s fold.
“Many more parties will join the the NDA after the LJP joined it,” he said, sharing the stage with Paswan, who quit the multi-party alliance in the wake of the 2002 Gujarat riots.
Wherever I go, whoever I meet, I talk about one thing â€“ how to solve things. Our opponents instead think of a solution from Modi: Narendra Modi
NDA is expanding and I welcome Ram Vilas ji and Upendra ji. This expansion is not going to stop. Our strength will increase and so will the woes of others.
â€œRam Vilas ji left NDA but whenever we met, we met with great affection. If media took photos, he never got scared. This is because Paswan ji has no hypocrisy, whereas some leaders will talk properly behind closed doors, and behave differently in public. People cannot forgive hypocrisy,â€ asserted Modi.
Modi added that the coming decade would see an improvement in the living standards of the poor.
The coming decade belongs to the right of the poor and the marginalised. We are very clear on that: Modi
Modi took a dig at his opponents, saying they were more concerned about tackling him that the nation’s problems.
“Our priority is to find a solution to the problems of the country. Their priority is to find a solution to Modi!”
He underlined the value of maintaining peace in the country. “Without peace, harmony and unity, the country cannot develop.”
