Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday addressed two rallies in Bihar, one was in Jamui and the other in Gaya.

He thanked the people for giving him and the BJP the opportunity to serve them and said he will form the government again with their "blessings".

"Modi will form the government again. Countrymen and Indians abroad are blessing the chowkidar," he said at a poll rally here.

He said, the developments in the country in all spheres are due to the people and "Your chowkidar will complete the work that is left."

Hitting out at the opposition alliance against the BJP, Modi said the 'Mahamilawatis' (highly adulterated) are afraid of the "chowkidar" in a reference to the 'main bhi chowkidar' campaign of the BJP.

"The other group afraid of the chowkidars are the terrorists", he said adding blasts had rocked Gaya and various parts of the country almost everyday before the BJP came to power. But the blasts stopped since the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Addressing another rally in Jamui, he also hit out at National Conference leader Omar Abdullah for advocating restoration of the post of Prime Minister in Jammu and Kashmir, saying can any country have more than one PM. I would like the Congress and the RJD, which are part of the same mahamilavat gang, to come clean on the issue.

The PM has been mocking mahagathbandhan (grand alliance) of opposition parties as "mahamilavat" (highly adulterated).

"They appear more like spokespersons for Pakistan than political parties representing India," the PM said launching a scathing attack at the rivals for their comments post-Pulwama terror attack.

The Prime Minister alleged that whenever the Congress has come to power in the country, whether on its own or heading an alliance, governance has gone into reverse gear. 

Growth rate has dropped while there has been a surge in terrorist activities, violence and accumulation of black money.

In a veiled attack on parties like Lalu Prasads RJD, Modi said those who always swore by the name of JP (Jayaprakash Narayan) are now sitting in the lap of the Congress.

In an apparent rebuttal of the RJDs repeated allegation that his government was planning to do away with reservations to forward the RSS agenda, he said let alone Modi, nobody can abolish quotas. We have provided 10 per cent reservations for the economically weaker sections among the general category, but we have done so without diluting reservations for SCs, STs and OBCs, he pointed out.

Five places associated with Ambedkar, including London, are being developed as Panch teerth (five places of pilgrimage) by my government, Modi added.

Modis maiden election rally in the state was held in the Lok Sabha segment represented by Chirag Paswan, son of Union minister Ramvilas Paswan and the heir apparent of BJPs alliance partner Lok Janshakti Party.

You know what depths Bihar had sunken into under the RJDs rule. The team of Nitish Kumar and Sushil Kumar Modi had made great efforts to pull Bihar out of the deep rut. A lot more still needs to be done and for that we need your blessings, he said.

In keeping with his rousing style of oratory, Modi ended his brief address by making the crowds chant along with him Main bhi Chowkidar, gali gali mein chowkidar an obvious riposte to Congress president Rahul Gandhis oft-repeated slogan Chowkidar chor hai.
