Modi in Ajmer: ‘Congress failed not only as ruling party but in opposition as well’


Prime Minister Narendra Modi began his campaigning for poll-bound states with a rally in Rajasthan’s Ajmer. In his speech, the prime minister accused the Congress of playing vote bank politics. “On one side there is the politics of vote-bank, and on the other side, you have a government which works with the belief of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’. While others believe in breaking society, dividing society, we believe in uniting society and working with all, for the benefit of all”, he said.

With the Election Commission expected to announce the dates for Assembly Elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh among other dates, political parties are sending their star campaigners to these states to better their chances in the upcoming elections.

BJP chief Amit Shah will also head to Madhya Pradesh, where he is expected to make multiple visits over the next few days to meet party workers, respective spokespersons of the two parties said. The Congress chief will arrive in Morena via Gwalior to take part in Ekta Parishad conclave, a party spokesperson said. He will proceed to Jabalpur on the same day where he will perform’ Narmada Puja’ at Gwari Ghat and later hold a roadshow.

Amit Shah will visit Indore today where he will meet party workers from Indore and Ujjain regions, a BJP spokesperson said. He will visit Gwalior on October 9 to meet party workers.
