'Stable govt takes care of present while keeping...': Modi in Maharashtra

Mumbai/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday pitched for a stable government for the next five years as his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is seeking a third consecutive term in power.

Speaking at a rally in Maharashtra's Madha, Modi said, "A stable government takes care of the present while keeping in mind the needs of the future. Today, we are making huge investments in railways, roadways and airways… Our annual budget for infrastructure projects is equal to Congress’ infra budget of 10 years."

Modi, who is the supreme leader of BJP, claimed his BJP government, which came to power in 2014, achieved feats which the earlier Congress governments couldn't in 60 years since Independence.

He said, "Your love has become my strength! For the past 10 years, I have dedicated my life to serving you. People can now see the difference between 10 years of Modi and 60 years of Congress...

"We have achieved in a decade what they could not achieve in six decades."

The Prime Minister added, "Be it Vidarbha or Marathwada... this sin of making people yearn for every drop of water has been going on for years. The country gave Congress a chance to rule for 60 years. In these 60 years, many countries of the world have changed completely, but Congress could not provide water to the farmers' fields.

"In 2014, there were about 100 irrigation projects that were stuck for decades, out of which 26 projects were from Maharashtra. Just think, what a big betrayal Congress has done to Maharashtra."

Giving a push to women empowerment, Modi claimed India will soon have 3 crore 'Lakhpati Didis'.

The Prime Minister said, "Women have a huge role to play in building a Viksit Bharat. Modi has left no stone unturned to empower women. Thousands of women have joined Self Help Groups in the past 10 years.

"Women are contributing to the fast-paced development of villages. We have made 1 crore women Lakhpati Didis. India will soon have 3 crore Lakhpati Didis and that’s my guarantee!"
