Giving a clarion call to the people to form the NDA Government at the centre, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday said that the country needs a decisive Prime Minister like Narendra Modi to re-emerge as a "Golden Sparrow" across the globe.
Addressing the gathering during the Sangat Darshan program of the dina nagar assembly segment here on Wednesday. Badal said that Modi has already proved his mettle as a visionary leader by making Gujarat a leading state in the country.
Parkash Singh Badal said that people should rise above their parochial considerations and vote for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to restore the lost glory of the country.
Badal said, "Every vote for Modi is a vote for the betterment of the country."
"The result of wrong policies of the Congress party for the country, due to which we facing a number of social maladies like unemployment, poverty, starvation, illiteracy and inflation, which have accentuated the woes of the common man," Badal said.
Badal said that in such a dismal scenario the need of the hour was that a decisive and able administrator like Narendra Modi must be elected as the Prime Minister of the country.
Taking a dig at the Congress Party, Badal said that the party is not declaring Rahul Gandhi as its prime ministerial candidate so that the young scion of the Nehru-Gandhi family would not go to political oblivion after their inevitable defeat.
Interacting with the media persons, Badal termed the newly constituted Third Front as a mixture of the political parties, and said, "Going by the mood of the nation this front was not capable of preventing Modi for becoming the Prime Minister of the country."
He said that the country has already made up their minds to hand over the reign of the country in the strong hands of Narendra Modi due to which such fronts would hardly have any impact in the ensuing Lok Sabha polls.
