Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to address a mega rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya on Wednesday, May 1. This will be his first visit to Ayodhya after the 2014 election.
PM Modi will address a joint election rally for Ayodhya and Ambedkar Nagar Lok Sabha seats, said the party.The rally will be held in Maya Bazaar which falls under Goshainganj Assembly constituency in Ayodhya district, nearly 25 kilometres away from Ram Janmabhoomi.
Party workers began preparations for PM Modi’s rally. Ayodhya falls under Uttar Pradesh’s Faizabad Lok Sabha constituency, which goes to polls in the fifth phase on May 6.
PM Modi will also hold a mega roadshow and “Ganga aarti” in Varanasi on Thursday, a day before filing his nomination from the Uttar Pradesh Lok Sabha constituency on April 26.
Earlier today, Prime Minister addressed a rally in Bihar’s Darbhanga where he slammed opposition parties over national security issues.
“National security may not be an issue for those who do ‘mahamilavat’ but in new India, it is a big issue. In our neighbourhood, several terror factories are running. This is the new India, we will enter terror factories,” he said while addressing a rally in Bihar’s Darbhanga.
“They keep questioning that why Modi talks about terrorism. They believe that it is not an issue. You (audience) tell me — are nationalism and terrorism, not the issues? The Opposition does not have the understanding that you all have. More than 350 people were killed in a terror attack in Sri Lanka. Is that not an issue?,” the Prime Minister questioned.
In a veiled attack at CPI candidate Kanhaiya Kumar who is contesting from Bihar’s Begusarai, the Prime Minister stated that “some people have a problem with Bharat mata ki Jai and Vande Mataram. “Should such people lose their deposits or not? These are the same people who complain when I talk about Bharat.”
PM Modi further hit out at Opposition for questioning the outcome of Balakot air strike and for crying foul over EVM malfunction.
“After the third phase of Lok Sabha polls got over, people seeking evidence of India’s airstrike, have vanished. Now, they are abusing Modi and the EVMs. These people are cut off from the grass root level and which is why they are unable to sense the mood the country,” he said.
