Narendra Modi urged people to vote wisely in the upcoming Lok Sabha election. He asked people what kind of government they want: A government which attacks the enemy in the house or who run away from the battleground?
Koraput: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday kick-started day two of his campaigning in Odisha's Koraput. While addressing the crowd, he said that his party will work with the people and try and fulfil all promises.
"I promised to work for you with full dedication and as your pradhan sevak (prime servant), I have tried to keep all my promises,” PM Modi said.
The Prime Minister also urged people to vote wisely in the upcoming Lok Sabha election. He asked people what kind of government they want: A government which attacks the enemy in the house or who run away from the battleground?

He also criticised the Congress for questioning the intention of the Indian Army after the Balakot air strike on February 26. “Do you trust the Indian Army," asked PM Modi.
PM Modi also criticised the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) government led by Naveen Patnaik for failing to curb naxal uprising in the neighbouring areas. "2019 Lok Sabha election is not an election for just one MP or an MLA. This is the time to elect a BJP government so that development in both Centre and state can run at double the speed,” added Modi.
The Prime Minister also pointed out the good things his party did in the state. At least 40 lakh houses have received gas connections under Ujjwala Yojana. He also said 3000 villages have got electricity connection.
"The NDA government has been working hard to develop road and rail infrastructure in the state. There is no dearth of funds when it comes to development work in the country,” he added.
Thanking the public, “Behind all these successful efforts, it has been your blessings, your cooperation,’ said PM Modi.
Referring to Mission Shakti, when India demonstrated anti-satellite (ASAT) missile capability by shooting down a live satellite, he said the government has taken measures to set up a 'chowkidar' (watchman) in space.
The Prime Minister began his election campaign for Eastern India from Jeypore town in Odisha's Koraput district on Friday.
Odisha BJP spokesman Golak Mohapatra said the prime minister will also address an election meeting at Bhawanipatna, the district headquarters town of Kalahandi on April 2.
BJP president Amit Shah is also scheduled to visit Odisha on April 1 and will address two meetings at Parlakhemundi and Umarkote, Mohapatra said.
