Agartala, February 15: After appealing people to join in making “New Tripura” in Shantir Bazar in Tripura, Prime Minister addressed another rally in Asthabal Maidan ion Agartala. PM Modi appealed people to trust in Bhartiya Janata Party's efforts and kick out Left's rule.
Thanking the people of Tripura, PM Modi said that “I thank people of Agartala for the overwhelming support they have shown today.”
Further PM Modi questioned people "For over two decades, the Left ruled the state of Tripura but nowhere we can see development. Can any resident of Tripura say that development has been prioritized in the state? I was just told that traffic signals were installed here and they (state government) consider it a big task."
Teasing Left government, PM Modi said that “We have to stop in traffic when there is 'Red light'. In the same manner, Tripura will move on the path of progress when the 'Reds' (Left government) are removed from power.” “Congress party and Communists have joined hand and they are two sides of the same coin. Congress is expert in corruption and CPM in violence," he added.
Even after 2 years of providing around Rs 1,000 Crores for Gram Sadak Yojana, around Rs 150 Crores have not been spent for rural roads, PM Modi said.
"We believe in 'Ganatantra'. But the Left government has ruined Tripura by turning it into a 'Gun Tantra’,” PM Modi said hitting at Left government.
Recalling the brutal killings of BJP activists PM Modi stressed saying that “Left parties do not believe in democracy. They murdered our 10 karyakartas. It's time to pay homage to brave journalists and karyakartas who have been murdered for political reasons in Tripura.”
"Once we form the government here, we will conduct a high-level probe into all the political killings and killings of journalists," he adds.
