Here are the highlights of his speech:

  • PM Modi arrives at the Ramlila ground in Delhi.
  • Prime Minister Modi begins his address at BJP's mega rally in Delhi.
  • I would like to extend my greetings to people of Jammu and Kashmir for reposing their faith in democracy and voting in large numbers.
  • BJP has achieved a historical success in Jammu and Kashmir, I'm grateful to people of the State.
  • I was surprised to see that our Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu has as much knowledge about Delhi as he does about Hyderabad or Vijayawada.
  • Today the youth of the nation is waiting for their future with immense hopes and aspirations.
  • The mood of the nation is the mood of Delhi.
  • I was told several issues were left pending. Issues of the poor were unsolved.
  • Enough of politics. What did the common people get. Poverty increased despite slogans to end poverty.
  • We have ushered a new politics, that is above casteism, regionalism etc. It is only thinking about development.
  • We took up the Jan Dhan Yojana. Years ago banks were nationalised but their doors did not open for the poor.
  • In the past could you see the poor in a bank? After Jan Dhan Yojana it is clear that who is working for the poor and who weren't.
  • I feel proud in saying that around 11 crore people have opened bank accounts till 10th January under the Jan Dhan Yojana.
  • Look at big heart of the poor people, they opened up bank accounts with Rs 5 or 10, when they could have opened accounts with zero balance.
  • From Rs 5 to Rs 200, as much as Rs 8500 crore rupees were deposited in banks by the poor during the process of their zero-account-balance account openings.
  • We want to make Delhi free from generators. When that happens Delhi will also be free from the polluted air.
  • I promise you that I will provide you with 24 hours supply of electricity.
  • Like you choose your service provider for your phone, we will introduce a system where you can choose who you want to buy your electricity from.
  • Should people in our Capital have to stay in slums and footpaths? No.
  • I have a dream, that every slum dweller in Delhi should have a house of their own by 2022, when India will complete 75 years of Independence.
  • It seems there is a factory of spreading lies in Delhi by some. And those who spread lies will be rejected by people.
  • Those who have a mastery in sitting on streets, Dharnas please give them that work. We can run a good government give us this work.
  • Have you seen leaders who say 'yes, I am an anarchist?' Such people should go with Naxalites, as they do the same thing.
  • Elect a Government with a complete majority. Hasn't a year been wasted in Delhi. Punish those who wasted this year for you.
