உத்தரப்பிரதேசம் மாநிலத்தல் இன்னும் சில மாதங்களில் தேர்தல் வர இருக்கின்றது. அனைத்து கட்சிகளும் அங்கு தேர்தல் பிரச்சாரம் ஈடுபட்டு வருகின்றனர். இந்நிலையில் இன்று பாஜக கட்சி தனது தேர்தல் பிரச்சாரக் கூட்டத்தை நடத்தியது மொராதாபாத் நகரில் நடைபெற்ற இந்த தேர்தல் பிரச்சாரத்தில் பிரதமர் மோடி அவர்கள் உரையாற்றினார்கள்.
அவரது உரையில்

நாட்டை கொள்ளையடித்தவர்களை அடையாளம் காட்டியதற்காக என் சொந்த நாட்டிலேயே சிலர் என் மீது குற்றம்சாட்டுவதை அறிந்து எனக்கு ஆச்சரியமாக உள்ளது.

நாட்டில் ஊழல் ஒழிக்கப்பட வேண்டுமா? அல்லது, நிலைத்திருக்க வேண்டுமா? என்பதை நீங்கள் முடிவு செய்ய வேண்டும்.

ஊழலை எதிர்த்து நான் போராடக் கூடாதா? ஊழலை எதிர்த்து போராடுவது குற்றமா? ஊழலை எதிர்த்து போராடுவதற்காக நான் தவறு செய்வதாக சிலர் கூறுவது ஏன்?

கருப்பு பணத்தை குவித்து வைத்திருப்பவர்கள் இன்று ஏழை மக்களின் உதவிக்காக அவர்களின் வீட்டு வாசலில் வரிசையில் நிற்கிறார்கள். நேர்மையற்றவர்களான அவர்களால் நேரடியாக வங்கிக்கு சென்று பணத்தை போட முடியாது என்பதால் ஏழை மக்களின் மூலம் மாற்ற முயற்சிக்கிறார்கள்.
ஏழை மக்களின் ஜன்தன் யோஜனா திட்டத்தில் கருப்புப் பணத்தை போடும் இதைப்போன்றவர்களை சிறையில் தள்ளுவதற்கான வழி என்ன? என்று சிந்தித்து வருகிறேன்.

உங்களுடைய கடின உழைப்பு, தியாகம், போராட்டம் ஆகியவை வீணாகப்போக விடமாட்டேன். உங்களுக்காக இந்தப் போரில் நான் ஈடுபட்டு வருகிறேன். என்னை குற்றம் சொல்பவர்களால் என்னை ஒன்றுமே செய்ய முடியாது. நான் ஒரு துறவி, எனக்கு சொந்தமான சில பொருட்களை எடுத்துக்கொண்டு வெளியேறி விடுவேன்.

இவ்வாறு அவர் பேசினார்.

Highlights

I had come to Moradabad in 2009, could not come in 2014.
I felt bad that I could not visit the place that gave me so much love.
I had sent you a message from afar that make BJP win. And they supported us wholeheartedly.
So I have come to thank you.
If poverty is eliminated from a large state, the overall number poor will reduce.
The faster we do it, the faster our country will get rid of poverty.
Benaras gave me its blessings.
But I did not fight elections from Uttar Pradesh to win parliament elections.
I did it because I want to free the state from poverty and usher in development.
If there’s development, then there will be employment, there will be education for kids, the medicines for the old will cost less.
Vikas will change the lives of mothers and sisters.
Development will bring electricity in houses.
The Moradabad, which can shine the world with its bronze, there, over 1,000 villages did had have electricity. They were living in dark.
People were forced to spend their lives in darkness. But they could not do anything. They were harassed by officials.
Nobody wrote me a letter saying Moradabad has no electricity. So I called officials and asked them how many villages did not have electricity. I was shocked to know that there were over 18,000 such villages.
So I announced from the ramparts of the Red Fort.
There have been several government who give speeches, this is the first which gives hisab.
I don’t have a high command, no ministers above me, I only report to you, the people.
I promised from the Red Fort that I will bring electricity (in Moradabad). It came before I did.
Women don’t have to go to cities to process wheat. They don’t have to go to cities to utilize ground water. They have electricity in their villages now.
If you want development, it can be done. But if you only think of your progress, then the country can never prosper. Many such governments have come. The BJP government is not one of them.
I ask you, tell me honestly, with all your strength, hasn’t corruption troubled you, hasn’t it destroyed the country. So you tell me, should corruption stay or go? Will it go itself?
Won’t we have to use a stick to chase it out?
If someone works to weed out corruption, is he a criminal?
But I am surprised that some people in our country are accusing me? Is it my fault that I am working for the poor?
I am fighting this war for you. What can they, the corrupt, do to me? What will they do at best? We are Fakirs, we will carry our bags and walk away.
The rich they carry cards in their wallets. I said I will give cards to the poor of my country. So I gave 20,000 crore cash cards to the poor.
If we can give power to the poor, poverty can end tomorrow. This is my country’s strength, the poor don’t beg, they give.
The rich are now pleading the poor. They say, the kids are grown up now. You have been so nice to us. Why don’t you deposit my 2-3 lakhs in your Jan Dhan account.
The powerful, the honest are queuing outside banks. The rich are secretly queuing up outside the houses of poor, requesting them to deposit their money in their Jan Dhan accounts.
Whoever’s money you have put in your accounts, don’t withdraw a penny. See how they will make rounds of your houses. Plead you. Fall at your feet.
If someone threatens you, say do not, or else I would write a letter to Modi.
Promise me that you will not withdraw and give that money. If you don’t, I promise I will find a way. A way to send these people to prisons and the money to your houses.
These corrupt, these days, all they are saying is Modi Modi Modi, earlier they used to say Money Money Money.
I was watching on TV the other day, a reporter was asking questions to people outside ATMs.
He asked people to evoke anger, but later reported that he is surprised the people are answering with a smile, even after standing in queues for hours in the cold.
The middle-class parents are forced.
The official in schools say Rs. 500 officially, Rs. 75,000 unofficially. The middle-class worker than have to get black money somehow and give them.
The country wants honestly, wants to eliminate corruption.
The hardships who have borne, the hours you have spent in queues, even faced boards that there is not money left in the bank, I promise you, I will not let your toil go to waste. I will find ways to solve your problems.
You have a phone, then your phone is your wallet. You don’t need to withdraw money from ATMs. You can buy what you want from the money in your account through your phones.
The people who say Indians are illiterate, Indians don’t know anything. But around the world, people use paper ballots. India votes through a button.
My country accepts change. The poor of my country accepts it.
We don’t have to only weed out black money, we not only have to force money out of the hands of the corrupt, but we have to make sure this problem does not come again.
Promise me that you will still use mobiles to pay and buy stuff. My country is ready to be Digital India.
I had asked for 50 days, I especially value the contribution of the farmers. Even with the cash crunch, we did not let the sowing drop. I salute the farmers.
