In the wake of speculations that 2019 polls may results in a hung Parliament and BJP may emerge as single largest party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today urged people to give a clear mandate to BJP. So that, he said that a majority government can take strong and tough decisions.
Asserting that his government has proved that a majority government can perform way better than a coalition one, he warned that a coalition can’t perform. “If we didn’t have the majority, I could have said it’s not a clear majority and have compulsions. The mandate helped us work for the people,” he added.
In his speech after inaugurating the new terminal building of Surat airport, PM Modi said demonetisation helped wipe out black money in real estate helping the middle and lower income group realise their dreams of owning a home.
Rediculing opposition efforts for a grand alliance, ahead of 2019 polls, Modi said that they are only united by “hatred for Modi”. “This alliance is a unique one. It is an alliance of the rich, an alliance of uncle and nephew, an alliance of the corrupt, of scams, of negativity, of instability, of inequality),” Modi had said targeting West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee United India Rally earlier this month.
Launching a scathing attack on the Congress-led opposition, he alleged that it is making fun of their government for its effort to build ‘New India’. Lauding the work done by his government in the last 4.5 years while taking a dig at the erstwhile UPA government, PM Modi said, “If previous govt had to do work that I have done so far, they would have needed 25 more years for it.”
