Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that no matter how much the Opposition tries to stop him at the elections he will return to office, fuelled by people’s power.
At an election campaign in Kannauj which goes to the polls in the fourth phase on Monday, Modi said the whole country was campaigning for him and the BJP.
Like in 2014, it’s a straight fight on Kannauj between Samajwadi Party’s Dimple Yadav and BJP’s Subrat Pathak who lost last time narrowly by 19,000 votes.

“Modi’s campaign is being run by the women who was given gas cylinders by the government, by the girl who got a toilet at her home, by the man who got a house, by the couple whose children have been treated free of cost under Ayushman Bharat and by farmers who got direct money transfers,” he said.
“The Opposition has abused this chowkidar and Ram bhakts but what happened? They were campaigning for themselves but the whole country was campaigning for this chowkidar.... the people of UP are fighting the polls for the BJP... The crowd in Kashi has unnerved the opposition and your presence here shows that you have decided to break the 2014 election results. People have decided to bring back Modi after the third phase of elections.”
Modi insisted that his government will not compromise with national security and accused the SP-BSP alliance of not having any policy to counter terror.
“There will be no compromise with national security. Terrorism is India’s greatest danger and terror factories are still running in Pakistan. The SP and BSP have no formula to counter terror. They have abused Modi so many times but never condemned terrorism. They are dreaming of becoming PM but have no plans to safeguard our security forces,” Modi said.
The Prime Minister underlined his government’s new doctrine of going after terrorists to eliminate them.
“The opposition cares only for its families and not for the country. But new India will not be afraid now. We will enter the homes of terrorist and kill them. Only then the country will be safe.”
He hinted that the SP-BSP alliance will not be able to stop the BJP returning to power.
“History will be made on May 23. The new generation knows the opportunism of SP-BSP well.”
At another rally in Sitapur, Modi reiterated that the PM Kisan Smaman Nidhi and other measures taken by his government would double farmers’ income by 2022.
“After May 19 when the Modi government will return to power, we will come up with something bigger and better. There will be pension for small farmers and shopkeepers and concrete houses for all by 2022,” he said.
