Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address at a rally in Ajmer in Rajasthan today on Saturday, launched a blistering attack on the Congress party hours before the announcement of the poll dates happened. On the other hand, BJP president Amit Shah, planted a scathing attack on Congress for mocking the Army personnel.
PM Modi stated, “There would be no Indian who would not be proud of our jawans and the surgical strike they conducted. But look at Congress. They even mocked our jawans”.
Whereas Congress President Rahul Gandhi in Morena stated, “Rafale deal given to HAL would’ve created hundreds of jobs in India. But PM Modi steals this from HAL and gives the ₹30,000 Cr contract to Anil Ambani’s company.”
Modi was earlier scheduled to make a visit to Brahmaputra temple in the town of Pushkar but now he will attend just the rally in Ajmer.
State president Madan Lal Saini, Raje and other leaders conducted a review of the preparations on Friday for the rally to be conducted at Kayad Vishram Sthali on the outskirts of Ajmer where according to the claims of the party leaders three lakh people would come.
Chairman of Rajasthan Heritage Preservation and Promotion Authority, Onkar Singh Lakhawat, stated, “This will be a historic rally of the prime minister which will be participated by a large number of people”.
He further stated that the party workers were “fully geared up and buzzing with enthusiasm” for the rally. The rally marks the completion of ‘Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra’ that was begun by Raje from the temple of Charbhujanath of Rajsamand.
The district of Ajmer has eight assembly constituencies and seven of them are represented by BJP MLAs while the Congress has one seat of Nasirabad.
The ruling party, which had lost the Ajmer Lok Sabha constituency to Congress in bypolls held earlier this year, is trying to build a favourable atmosphere and mood among the voters by holding the rally of Modi, who had addressed an election rally in Ajmer in 2013 also.
