Ahead of the Meghalaya Assembly polls, PM Modi holds road show in Shillong

Ahead of the Meghalaya Assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a roadshow in Shillong on Friday.

The roadshow started at Central Library and concluded at the Police Bazar where he addressed a public rally.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday asserted that India is scaling new heights of success and Meghalaya is making strong contributions to it.

“I am here with a message of development, India is gaining new height of success and Meghalaya is making a strong contribution to it. Your love and blessing, we will repay the debt by developing Meghalaya,” PM Modi said.

Hitting out at Congress members, who had raised the slogan ‘Modi teri kabar khudegi’ slogan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asserted that people across the country are, instead, chanting ‘Modi tera kamal khilega’. Addressing a public rally here, he exuded confidence that ‘lotus’, the BJP symbol, will bloom in the state, as the saffron party-led government has always prioritised the well-being of its people.

“Everyone in the state is raising the same slogan ‘Meghalaya wants BJP Government’,” Modi said adding, “In the support of BJP the sentiment reflected in Meghalaya and in entire Northeast has several reason, for long time some people have use the state as well the region for their own benefit and for dynasty politics, but now it has to go.”

He also asked people to get rid of dynasty politics.

The PM further said that the Congress and similar parties used to loot Northeastern states and treated them as ATMs, while the BJP considers the Northeast as the growth engine of the country’s development.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party’s mantra of “peace, progress and prosperity” in the state is the reason behind people’s ‘rising’ trust in the BJP, adding that the border disputes are being resolved at a rapid pace due to the NDA governments in the states.

Earlier, PM Modi also paid floral tributes to three freedom fighters of the state – U Tirot Sing, U Kiang Nangbah and Pa Togan Sangma in Shillong.
