“It is certain that the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance is going to form the next government (in Bihar) and there will be double celebration of Diwali, one for the poll outcome and the other for the festival of lights,” Modi said while addressing his first election rally in Bihar in Banka district after dates for the state assembly elections were announced last month.
Modi urged the people to vote for ‘vikasvad’ (development). “You have faced ahankarvad (arrogance), samantvad (feudalism), vanshvad (dynastic politics). You have tried everything, now vote for vikasvad (development) for once to change the face of Bihar,” the prime minister said.
Modi said he and his party were committed to the development of Bihar. “Make your decision once and I assure you I will be with you every step of the way towards the development of Bihar,” he said.
He said his agenda was jobs for the youth, making policies for benefit of farmers, and women contributing to nation-building.
