New Delhi, Sep 29 (ANI): Launching a frontal attack on the Gandhi family, BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Sunday said Delhi is burdened by governments; there are governments within governments- one of the mother, one of the son.
Speaking at a massive rally in the national capital, Modi said the nation-formation is the responsibility of the people as well as the government.
"Governments are the strength of the people, but Delhi is burdened by governments. In Delhi, there are multiple governments - one belonging to 'maa', one to 'beta' and another to 'damaad'. Apart from this, there is a coalition government too," he added.
Modi said the Congress-led UPA II Government is immersed in 'Gandhi-worship'.
"It means they worship the notes which have Gandhi's image on it. This government is so corrupt that you can't count the money, you have to weigh it," he added.
Modi also called for good governance at the Centre.
"India wants Swaraj. But Indians cannot find it anywhere. Today, the demand is for good governance or 'sushasan, swaraj'. 'Kushasan' is like diabetes and it destroys the country. So, it is our prime duty to give our nation 'Sushasan'," he said.
Modi further claimed that nations smaller than India are striding way ahead than us today.
"It is only us, which is marching backward. India, a country of billions, has become the target of jeers. For how long will the unemployed youth roam around without money and a job? For how long, oh youth, you will beg for money from your parents? The youth need jobs. They need to be educated and trained and be assured of jobs," he said.
Modi also used the occasion to laud the NDA Government-led by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee at the Centre.
"The NDA government provided employment to six crore people in six years, and UPA between 2004-2009 has given employment to only 27 lakh people," he said.
Modi appealed to the people of the country to throw out the UPA from power for the betterment of the nation.
"This Congress government has to be thrown out for any good to come to this country. If you need jobs, if you need betterment, you need to throw out the UPA," said Modi.
"People tell me, 'You always criticise UPA government, what are you going to do?' My dear friends, look at Delhi, the capital of India. There are several places in the capital which do not get electricity for 24 hours," he added.
Massive arrangements had been put in place for the Gujarat Chief Minister's first rally in the national capital.
Also 3,000 policemen and paramilitary personnel have been deployed at the rally venue-Japanese Park, Rohini.
Special buses were arranged to bring in students and supporters from far-flung areas of Delhi. The Delhi Metro ran extra trains and feeder buses anticipating a huge rush. (ANI)
