J&K Polls: PM Modi promises to loosen strings of Centre's purse for JK
Poonch (JK): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today asked the people of Jammu and Kashmir to "close the shops" of political parties which did not fulfil promises and looted the state, and assured that there will be no dearth of money for development if BJP is voted to power.
The Prime Minister said that both the ruling parties in the state and opposition parties were against him as he had "tightened the screws" of the funds that were being sent to the state.
"Earlier, they were the givers at the Centre and they were the takers in the state, but now that I have tightened the screw they dislike me.
"You people have installed a guard at Delhi who is safeguarding your money," Modi said.
He said the people of the state have equal right on the "treasury" of the government of India.
"There will be no dearth of money for the development of this state" Modi said while making an appeal to the voters to vote to end corruption and form a stable government in the state.
"The Centre has pumped so much money for the development of Jammu and Kashmir that if it was distributed and directly deposited into the bank accounts of the resident here, you people would have been the richest people in the country," Modi said.
The Prime Minister appealed the people to punish those who "robbed" money meant for them.
"But, you people never got anything, you know who are the people who have been robbing your money and now if you want those people to be punished and take back every single penny from them you should help form a strong BJP government in the state," he said.
Launching a direct attacked on National Conference and People Democratic Party, Modi termed dynasty politics as a "disease".
"Dynasty politics, family politics, politics of nepotism is a disease where father-son, father-daughter rule the state.
"This is a disease and I seek the help of the people to eradicate it," Prime Minister Modi said while addressing an election rally here today.
Without naming anyone, Modi asked the people if they wanted to "punish" the people who have looted the funds meant for the development of the state. He said that if they wanted to punish them they should help BJP form a "strong and decisive" government in the state.
Modi appealed to the voters in the state to "close the shops" of the parties which did not fulfil the promises they had made for the past 60 years.
