Ayodhya: Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi, on his first visit to Ayodhya after becoming the PM, held a massive public meeting at Maya Bazar in Ayodhya on May 1 for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
With chants of Jai Shree Ram and blowing of conch shells by the supporters, PM Modi addressed a rally by chanting Jai Shree Ram and said that his government would not tolerate terrorism neither inside nor outside the country.
“It is a new India which will enter the homes of terrorists to neutralise them. We have a neighbour which deals in terrorism and exports it to Indian soil to weak our economy. But it is a new India which will destroy terrorists by entering their homes”.
Attacking on SP-BSP alliance, Modi said they did not do anything for the welfare of the poor and labours rather just misused the names of the Ram Manohar Lohia and Baba Bhim Rao Ambedkar in the name of development.
Modi further added, “ Congress, SP and BSP have only benefited their family members when they were in powers. Hence, they did not get time to think about the deplorable condition of the poor and weaker section of the society”.
PM also talked about the celebration Deepawali in Ayodhya, “People around the world are talking about the grand celebration of Deepawali in Ayodhya”.
