Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hit out at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and accused it of interested only in getting media attention.
Addressing an election rally at Dwarka in West Delhi, Modi said, “If you give a government that believes in agitations, they won’t have time to discuss your issues. They only need space in media.”
Without naming AAP, the Prime Minister said to be in government is a serious responsibility. It is about understanding the pains of the common man, he said.
“Delhi needs a responsible, sensitive government. Running the government is a big responsibility and running away is not the answer,” he said.
Delhi is going to polls on February 7 and counting of votes will be held on February 10. Extensive security arrangements were put in place to ensure peaceful conduct of the rally.
Modi further said the country needs a balanced growth. “Development of one region is not the development of the country. I want to take Delhi to new heights. This is not the responsibility of the Delhi government only. Government of India needs to take responsibility. Delhi is mini-India,” he said.
The PM reiterated that India is getting younger while many other countries are getting older.
He spoke of his interactions with leaders of leading nations. “When I meet global leaders, I treat them as equals because I have the support of the people of India….No good luck is better than the blessing of 125 crore people,” he said.
We have been working to find solution to the problems of people and also implement it, he added.
