Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday addressed a huge rally in Jodhpur hours after launching multiple projects during his visit to poll-bound Rajasthan. Citing the 'red diary', PM Modi said all sins of the Congress party are documented in the diary. "The secret of the red diary must be revealed and the corrupt leaders should be punished," he said.

The 'red diary' hit the headlines when sacked Rajasthan minister and Congress leader Rajendra Singh Gudha flashed it inside the Assembly claiming it stored details of corruption.

"It is the resolution of the BJP to make Rajasthan the number one state in Tourism. Who can make that happen? Modi can't do that, your vote can do that. With the power of your vote, the BJP will form the government in Rajasthan and it will become the number one state in tourism," asserted the PM.

PM Modi said the BJP government at the Centre is making every effort on its part for the development of Rajasthan but, it is painful to see the condition of the state.

"Congress has brought Rajasthan to the top of the country in terms of corruption and riots. It has made Rajasthan the number 1 in terms of atrocities against women and Dalits. Congress has given a free hand to the drugs business," he added.

"For the BJP government, your health is our priority. On one side, we are providing free treatment facilities to poor families under the Ayushman Bharat scheme and on the other side, we are building modern hospitals in record numbers," PM Modi added.
