Lucknow, Oct.25 (ANI): Commenting on Narendra Modi's Jhansi rally, Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Naresh Agarwal on Friday said that unless the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial aspirant talks about development or eradication of poverty, the people would never vote for the party.
"I wonder if BJP has nominated him as the nation's Prime Minister or for some village. He is not talking on any issue like Pakistan and China, or national issue like inflation, unemployment. Unless they talk about development or poverty, people will never vote for them," he said.
Earlier in the day, Modi hit out at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and asked the 'Shahzada' (prince) of the ruling party if he was infuriated when Sikhs were attacked, murdered and burnt alive in protest over his grandmother Indira Gandhi's assassination.
"Shahzada said he was angry when his grandmother was killed. I want to ask the Shahzada and all his party members, if he and all his party members felt the same anger when thousands of Sikhs were burnt during the riots, and till today, not one has been brought to justice," Modi said while addressing a rally in Jhansi.
Urging the people to vote for the BJP, Modi said that his party would change the face of the country if given 60 months of service at the Centre in a way that the Congress' 60 years of power could not imagine.
BJP President Rajnath Singh and senior party member Uma Bharti were also present at the rally. (ANI)
