Jharkhand Polls: End dynastic politics: Modi tells Jharkhand voters
Ranchi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday appealed to the Jharkhand electorate to oust dynastic politics and said people in the country are fed up of it.
He was speaking at an election rally in Jamshedpur ahead of the second phase of assembly polls Dec 2.
"People in the country are fed up with dynasty politics. In Lok Sabha polls, people ended dynasty politics and now it is the turn of Jharkhand to oust it," Modi said at the Gopal ground rally.
He appealed to the people to vote for a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state for development.
"Jharkhand has the potential to provide employment to the youth of the country. Jharkhand has natural resources, but these were plundered by the state. The time has come to give a clear mandate to the BJP to shape the future," he said.
He said a BJP government in the state will utilise central funds well, adding that "under a new policy, Jharkhand will get Rs.20 lakh crores from coal which will be used for the development of the state".
