“Western and central India are growing because BJP governments are there. In eastern parts, the growth has not taken place because this area has been ruled by 'Third Front' governments. Out of 11 parties who are clamouring for Third Front, 9 have been supporting Congress. Therefore, beware of these ‘' Third Front constituents. Their one point agenda is to save Congress party. We can't purify Indian politics unless and untill we are aware of these Third Front parties, said Modi while addressing an impressive rally named 'Bijoy Sankalpa Samavesh'in Bhubaneshwar.
Modi said that Biju Patnaik, wherever he is his, must be disappointed with the present state of affairs in Odisha. He said that people from the Chief Minister naveen patnaik's own district are migrating to Gujarat for employment.
“If you want to make an Odisha of Biju Patnaik's dreams then make sure that BJP comes to power,” said Modi.
Modi started his speech in ‘Oriya' and indirectly ridiculed Odisha CM Naveen patnaik for not knowing the local language.
“I didn't speak in Odiya to belittle Naveen patnaik . I did it because I like ‘Oriya' and in my state ‘Gujarat', it's the second language,” said Modi.
Modi appealed to people of Odisha to vote for BJP in upcoming parliamentary elections and ensure that all 21 seats have BJP respresentatives.
The rally was attended by BJP chief Rajnath Singh, State BJP chief Kanak Vardhan Singhdeo, and BJP Odisha in-charge Chandan Mitra among others.
