Sharpening his attack on the ruling coalition in Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday described dynastic politics as a "termite" that eats away the foundations of democracy.
Holding corruption, bad governance and nepotism responsible for the problems being faced by the people of Jammu and Kashmir, he said dynastic politics was the root cause of all these problems.
"Dynastic politics is a termite that eats away the foundation of democracy," he said while addressing an election rally at Sangaid Mandli area of Billawar constituency.
The Prime Minister said the people should vote for BJP to end the father-son and father-daughter rule in the state.
"Are your children not capable, don't they deserve to hold important positions," Modi asked the crowd.
"You people have to elect BJP so as to end this father-son, father-daughter rule forever and give your own children a chance," he said.
Modi charged that the previous governments in the state were not concerned about the youth, as they were busy with their own children.
"The earlier governments were busy with their own children, now its time for you people to send them home permanently so that they can take care of their family. Give all the 22 seats in the Jammu region to BJP so that they are punished for the next 50 years," Modi said.
He said only democracy has the power that can give equal opportunity to the youth of the state.
"This is the power of democracy in BJP that a tea seller is now the Prime Minister of the country, the power lies in your vote," he said.
