Hazaribagh (Jharkhand): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today exhorted people of Jharkhand to shun politics of caste and nepotism and focus on development.

Addressing an election rally in Hazaribagh of Jharkhand, Modi said," We have had enough of caste politics and nepotism. It's time for politics of development. Those who had to loot, have looted to the optimum level. We will do politics of development. We will give you a government committed for development, we should evaluate a government on the basis of development. Politics on the basis of caste and religion will not be allowed."

Modi appealed to the people to give a clear majority to the BJP in assembly elections the same way they had voted for the party in Lok Sabha elections.

"I am thankful to the people of Jharkhand for voting BJP to power, without your support it wasn't possible for us to form government in Delhi. After 30 yrs we have a strong and stable Govt,Jharkhand has played an important role in it. This is the land of the brave Birsa Munda.You have saved the country, now it is your responsibility to save Jharkhand," said Modi.

Remembering Lt Col. Sankalp Kumar Shukla who was martyred in yesterday's terrorist attack in Uri, Modi said that his sacrifice will inspire generations.

"Jharkhand has given several bravehearts to the nation. I bow to our brave jawans who sacrificed their lives. We won't forget them. Jharkhand's son Sankalp Kumar Shukla lost his life for security of nation,I pay my tribute to him,his sacrifice will inspire generations,"added Modi.

Modi said he wanted to change the situation in the state by providing education and employment by setting up factories, making water available and providing electricity to villages.  All families, he said, should avail Jandhan Yojana tagged with insurance.

Urging people to vote for BJP in the on-going assembly polls, the prime minister said that if the party came to power not only the state government but also the Centre would work for Jharkhand's development.

Modi said Jharkhand did not require a coalition government as it would not benefit the people.  

“Jharkhand needs a government committed to the welfare of the people. It does not require a government of coalition, which does not help the people,” he told the election meeting.  

The state has been under coalition governments for the past 14 years and saw nine governments and three spells of President's rule.

Terrorists in Kashmir tried to attack Indian democracy: Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi  said terrorists tried to attack Indian democracy but brave jawans sacrificed their lives protecting the country's security.

“Terrorists tried to attack the democracy of India. But the brave jawans sacrificed their lives protecting the country's security,” said Modi.

Kashmir Valley was yesterday rocked by four attacks by militants from across the border, who stormed an army camp in Uri leaving 11 security personnel including Lt Colonel Sankalp Kumar dead and killed two civilians in Tral.

 
The attacks and gun battles with security forces left in all 21 people dead. Among them was a top commander of Pakistan-based terror outfit LeT and seven militants.
 
Modi, who will be holding a rally in Srinagar city on Monday, had condemned the terror attacks as “desperate attempts” to derail the atmosphere of hope created by the increased voter turnout and saluted the soldiers who laid down their lives for the nation.

Condemning the terror attack in Kashmir, the Prime Minister said the terrorists would not be forgiven by the country.

“We will not remain idle and give the Pakistani-based terrorists a suitable reply,” he said and described the attack as a ‘cowardly act' by them as they were frustrated over the huge turnout of Kashmiri voters in the last two phases of elections.

The Kashmiris, he said, have proved that they believe in democracy and democratic system for development and prosperity and not separatism.

“India cannot forget the martyrdom and sacrifice of Indian soldiers  in Kashmir at any cost. The people of Jharkhand, who always sacrificed for the cause of the nation, should remember this day every year for ‘balidan' (martyrdom) of the great sons of India and Jharkhand,” Modi added.
