Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched Bhartiya Janta Party’s poll campaign in Rajasthan’s Ajmer City on Saturday, ahead of the assembly polls in the state.

While addressing the rally in Ajmer, the Prime Minister said, “After 60 years, the country is in the right direction. They should not be given another chance.”

He also added, “In a healthy democracy, a strong opposition is needed. But, we have a set of people who not only failed in government for 60 long years, but also have failed as an opposition

He further said, “Some people worship the dynasty, but we worship the people. These people provide budget for vote bank politics, but then no actual work is done. Contracts are given to the family members and relatives of these leaders.

Launching a scathing attack on Congress President Rahul Gandhi, he said, “There are people who think that they can change the course of their politics with a hug. Vote bank politics is not only limited to elections. It destroys the entire system. It gives rise of mistrust. Administration suffers.

Speaking on the issues relating to women, PM Modi said, “We brought relief for women against triple talaq. We do not discriminate on the basis of religion. I thank MP and Rajasthan govts for death sentence against rapists. Justice has been fast-tracked. Demons with such mentality should be scared.”

He further added, “Our countrymen are our family. 30% women are working in government departments. We are committed to ensure welfare of women and mothers who are working. That is why we have decided to give 26 weeks maternity leave to them. Even the richest countries in the world did not do this.”
