UP Elections 2017: PM Trashes Other Parties at ‘Parivartan Rally’, Says Only BJP Offers Development

5 min read

The PM Narendra Modi today addressed a rally at the Ramabai Ambedkar Grounds in Lucknow in what was described as a Parivartan rally. This marks the Prime Minister’s first rally of the new year and is aimed squarely at the upcoming UP elections, whose dates are yet to be announced but is expected to take place sometime in February or March. The PM trashed both the SP and the BSP and announced that only the BJP can guarantee development for the state.

Speaking at the rally, the PM said that both the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samajwadi Party has inflicted years of misrule on the Hindi heartland state and that the SP was mired in dynastic politics. The BSP too was accused of being corrupt and that the two parties had ganged up to prevent the BJP from coming to power in UP. The PM also targeted the Congress party, accusing it of playing politics over demonetisation.

The UP Elections 2017 is expected to be a very close contest with the four major parties campaigning on full steam. The SP has been divided into a number of factions, with father and SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav taking a stand against his son and UP CM Akhilesh Yadav. The BSP, on the other hand, has long been mired in controversy and corruption. The Congress party is yet to launch a solid campaign because of confusion in the higher ranks over who should lead the party in the state’s upcoming elections. The PM attacked each of them and mentioned DrB. R. Ambedkar and former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. He also stated that the BHIM app, designed to make digital transactions easier, had been named after him and that Ambedkar was the architect of the RBI in many ways.

PM Narendra Modi also announced that his intention to fight corruption was unshakeable and his detractors were trying to defame him. The PM thanked the masses for their steadfast support of the government’s move of demonetisation and expressed confidence that his party would win the UP elections 2017. He also iterated his belief that many people and many parties had looted people for many years and he would not spare them. The UP elections are very important in the context of national politics and the PM is expected to reappear on the campaign trail in the near future. He has also asked voters to vote not on caste and creed but on the basis of demonetisation.
