  • Modi who claims himself to be a nationalist believes a Pakistani reporter
  • He doesn't believe the Indian journalists who are present out there, but he believes a Pakistani reporter
  • This is anti-national and we condemn it
  • He has to put forth his views on everything at last even on what the Pakistani reporters have to say

Narendra Modi addresses mega BJP rally in Delhi:

  • Dilli mein BJP ke pass Vijay hi Vijay hai (referring to leaders like VK Malhotra, Vijay Goel)
  • I am grateful for the weather gods being kind to us
  • Governments are the strength of the people but Delhi is burdened by governments.
  • Here there are governments within governments - one of the mother, one of the son
  • Then there is also a coalition government. All the political allies of UPA are running individual governments
  • Coalition governments are formed on arithmetic but run on chemistry
  • Yeh pass pass toh hain, saath saath nahin hain
  • Each UPA constituent pulls in its own direction and the country is going nowhere
  • The Delhi Chief Minister has the easiest job. All she does is gut ribbons at inaugurations. She has no responsibilities.
  • If there is a law and order problem, she blames the Centre... she passes the buck up or down.
  • The Commonwealth Games scam has robbed India of its sportsman spirit.
  • Such games are a vehicle of branding the country in the world.
  • Sports is a medium to showcase the country on a global platform
  • For example: South Korea showcased itself in the Olympic Games and it aided in the country's development and attracted global attention
  • This country has been robbed of such opportunities for the next 20 years
  • Tells slogan raising workers, the media has seen your enthusiasm... please let the people at the back listen
  • Supreme Court keeps summoning Indian government on corruption cases but the Delhi politicians, Congress and its allies are addicted like an alcoholic
  • When this govt is mired in corruption, instead of finding a solution, it stops functioning. This govt is paralysed.
  • This UPA govt is immersed in Gandhi-bhakti. This Gandhi-bhakti refers to currency notes. This government is so corrupt that you can't count the money, you have to weigh it.
  • More than 60 years after Independence, smaller countries are doing better than us. We are regressing instead of progressing
  • Youth of this country want employment but this government is unable to do so
  • The NDA government provided employment to 6 crore people in six years, and UPA between 2004-2009 has given employment to only 27 lakh people
  • People don't have electricity in this capital city
  • Even the Prime Minister's house has generators
  • Delhi government lacks disha (vision), drishti (direction) and without money files go unsigned. To achieve something one only needs intent and they don't have it.
  • All the UPA's success stories are run by the states, look at what happens to central departments like Railways
  • China has progressed both on additional railway distance as well as speed
  • Railways is under Delhi govt. In 1980, Railways covered 61,000 km and in 31 years since then, the country has only seen an additional of 3,000 km
  • Look at what happened to the aviation sector - loss of 54,000 crores in 7 years and a 30,000 crore revival package
  • Doob Maro Doob maro Delhi government
  • The PM was prostrating himself in front of Obama - marketing India's poverty. 
  • He pleaded, "I have come from India, and I am PM of a poor country."
  • He should have stood tall and said we are a young country - what a shame.
  • This poverty you speak of Mr PM, is it a state of mind? That is the way the sehzaada (prince) defined it.
  • The country is apprehensive about what the PM will say to Nawaz Sharif
  • How dare Nawaz Sharif call India's PM a village woman? India is a country of 1.2 billion people, we will never tolerate this.
  • Where does Nawaz Sharif get such audacity? The PM has no respect within his party, how will he have respect in the world?
  • His own party calls him 'nonsense';  Congress ke vice president ne PM ki pagdi uchal di hai
  • The country doubts whether you will be able to stand firm with Nawaz Sharif, because for the last few years you have seldom spoken
  • I wonder if PM will be able to ask him when will Pakistan-aided terrorism end
  • Will the PM will be able to question Mr Sharif on the Indian soldiers who are brutally killed?
  • I want to ask the UPA government: PM declared that he wanted to work under the shahzade
  • But I want to ask UPA senior leaders if they want to work in tandem with the Constitution or the shahzada?
  • The country needs a dream team in 2014, not this dirty team
  • This government has no vision - look at all the Budgets and plans, only the dates change
  • India @75, poor should be able to get food, youth should be employed
  • Every man, every village should have a dream to move forward
  • I have faith that we can do this

  • Yeh Sarkar aur kitna giregi, Congress Munni se jyaada badnam ho gayee
  • Jisne swarg na dekha ho, woh dekhe jake Gujarat ko
  • Yeh Pradhan Mantri na sardar hai na asardar hai
  • Modi is desh ko sone ki chidiya banana chahte hain aur Manmohan Singh ise Sonia ki chidiya banana chahte hain
  • Congress aur Aam Aadmi party ka friendly match hai
