Varanasi: Opposition parties want to stop Prime Minister Narendra Modi from coming to power as he works for the oppressed community, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Thursday.
Addressing a public gathering here, Yogi said, “BJP has, over a span of five years, done a lot for the people of Uttar Pradesh. The opposition parties want to stop Prime Minister Modi from coming to power as he works for the oppressed community, forest dwellers and women.”
Reviving the “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas” stance, he urged locals here to vote for Modi for the work he has done for the people of the state. “Prime Minister Modi gave houses to more than 24 lakh people. Two crores sixty lakh people were given toilets. The work done by the Prime Minister has never been done before,” he said.
Thirteen parliamentary constituencies in Uttar Pradesh will go to polls on May 19 in the last phase of Lok Sabha elections. Results will be announced on May 23.
Modi’s parliamentary constituency, Varanasi, will also go to polls on Sunday. He is up against Congress’ Ajay Rai.
