Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been in full-throttle campaign mode in Maharashtra and Haryana for the upcoming assembly polls. If the Bharatiya Janata Party wins in both the states, it will be another feather in Modi's cap. But the question is, will his magic work this time?
Here are a few things he has said and laid emphasis on during his campaigning:
Modi hit out at his critics in a rally for allegedly politicising the ongoing standoff with Pakistan along the border in Jammu. "Such an issue should not be part of a political debate. Don't use words that will discourage the soldiers fighting on the border," he said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi shares dais with Shivaji Kardile (extreme right - in white cap) at a public rally in Rahuri of Ahmednagar district.
Modi requested crowds gathered at his rallies to not litter the grounds and clean whatever trash they come across. He launched the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan on October 2, 2014.
"When has the United States ever chanted 'India?", Modi asked at a rally. The Prime Minister, at his election rallies, has been speaking about his visit to the US.
Modi has accused Congress and NCP of spreading lies that Maharshtra will be split if BJP comes to power in the state. "I assure you that as long as I am in Delhi, no power in the world can split Maharashtra and also separate Mumbai from Maharashtra," he said.
Modi has been talking a great deal about providing more employment opportunities and lifting the poor from their status in both states.
Modi raised the issue of farmer suicides in Maharashtra and promised that the BJP wants to work the development of agriculture.
