UP elections 2017


UP ELection

Last Phase of Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh ending Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a final pitch Sunday for votes to the BJP.

In remarks that harked back to his kabristan-shamshaan line to attack rivals for discriminating on the basis of religion, Modi said the “political culture of the SP, BSP and Congress” was to promote “kuchh ka saath, kuchh ka vikas”, unlike the BJP’s “mantra of sab ka saath, sab ka vikas”.

Addressing an election rally at the Kashi Vidyapeeth in his Lok Sabha constituency of Varanasi where he held a second roadshow in two days, Modi said: “Hum logon ka mantra hai sabka saath, sabka vikas. SP, BSP, Congress ne jo rajniti ka culture paida kiya hai, unki ragon mein bas yahi baat daurta hai ki kuchh ka saath, kuchh ka vikas


  • UP Elections 2017: PM Narendra Modi Wraps Up Campaign With Strategic Varanasi Visits And 23rd Rally 

    The Prime Minister’s hectic programme on Monday, the last day for campaigning for the last round of the UP elections, was strategically designed.

    • He first visited the Gadwaghat Ashram which is most revered by Yadavs.

    • The ashram has over a crore followers and is said to have a powerful say in the political decision-making of the Yadav community, which Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party counts as a core support base.

    • From the ashram PM Modi went to Ramnagar to pay tribute to former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri, whose paternal home is in this part of Varanasi.

    • He garlanded a statue of the former Prime Minister and spent some time at his home, from where as a young boy from a poor family, Lal Bahadur Shastri swam across the Ganga to go to school on the days that he did not have money for a boat ride.

    The PM’s visit was seen as another attempt by him to claim the legacy of a tall Congress leader. The BJP alleges that the Congress has in obsequious worship of the Nehru-Gandhi family, ignored its other great leaders like Sardar Patel, BR Ambedkar and Lal Bahadur Shastri.
