Prime Minister Narendra Modi may have unofficially launched the election campaign in Uttar Pradesh when on the final day of the National Executive Committee meeting he spoke at a massive rally and also addressed a closed meeting highlighting on the fears, hopes, and strengths of the party. Uttar Pradesh is a crucial state politically and he launched a scathing attack on the ruling Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party, and said that the two were responsible for making the state lawless and keeping in backwards. “I ask people to break this five year alternation between these two parties which is like a fixed match, where they criticize each other’s corruption,” he said at the meeting.
He reminded his party colleagues of the work ahead, and said that the time of sloganeering is over. People of the country cannot be made happy with sloganeering, he said. “I offer you a seven word mantra – sewa bhav, santulan, sayyam, samanvaya, sakaratmak, samved aand samvad,” he shared,
