PM Modi's Rajasthan visit: In view to mark Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) nine years in power at the Centre, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a rally in Rajasthan's Ajmer district on Wednesday. Before addressing the rally, he offered prayers at the Brahma temple and visited the ghats. Hitting out at the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused it of following a policy of misleading the poor and keeping them deprived during its rule. "Fifty years ago, Congress guaranteed that it will remove poverty. But it turned out to be their biggest betrayal to the poor," he said at a rally in Ajmer.

"It has been a policy of the Congress to mislead the poor and keep them deprived. The people of Rajasthan have also suffered a lot due to this," Modi said.

The rally was organised to mark the completion of nine years of the Modi government across its two terms. The nine years of the BJP government were dedicated to the service of people, good governance, and welfare of poor, he said.

Modi said that before 2014, people were on the streets against corruption and terror attacks rocked major cities while the Congress ran the government by remote control. During its rule, Congress developed a corrupt system that "sucked the blood of the country" and hindered development, he said. Now, the prime minister said, people across the world are talking about India, and experts are saying India is very close to ending extreme poverty.

"Before coming to Ajmer, I had the opportunity to visit Pushkar. In our scriptures, Lord Brahma has been called the creator of the universe. With Lord Brahma's blessings, an era of new creation is going on in India. BJP-led NDA Govt in the Centre has completed 9 years. These 9 years have been dedicated to service to citizens, good governance and welfare of the poor," said PM Modi at a public rally in Ajmer, Rajasthan.

BJP's Maha Jansampark campaign

BJP leaders have already held press conferences in several states already to mark Modi’s nine years as Prime Minister. According to party leaders, the PM’s rally will flag the beginning of a series of party meetings as part of a major outreach campaign. 

Under this Maha Jansampark, scheduled to be held from May 31 to June 30, extensive public programmes will be done across the country. Over 51 huge rallies, Public meetings at more than 500 places, and over 600 press conferences at over 500 Lok Sabha and 4000 Vidhan Sabha constituencies will be conducted along with over 5 lakh distinguished families will be contacted.

"As part of the campaign, party leaders will meet 1,000 eminent families per Lok Sabha segment, and conduct 51 mega rallies across India, along with seminars with teachers, social media influencers and other distinguished citizens," Chugh said while addressing a press briefing.

Rajasthan goes to poll at the end of this year

Rajasthan, where the ruling Congress is caught in a leadership tussle between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and his former deputy Sachin Pilot, goes to the polls this year-end. This BJP event comes soon after the Congress leadership at the Centre held discussions with Gehlot and Pilot in an effort to patch up their differences ahead of the assembly polls later this year.
