Targeting the Nehru-Gandhi family, PM Modi said, "History proves that no dynasty prevails after its fourth generation rule in Delhi and Congress will also meet the same fate". 

"Let's compare the 55-year long Congress regime and 15-year-long  BJP regime in MP. Remember the days when Congress was in power and the state faced massive power cuts," he added.

"When I was contesting 2014 Lok Sabha polls as BJP's PM candidate, I traversed across the nation, seeking votes. Came here too, not even half of the people in attendance turned up to hear me back then." 
"People sitting in A.C rooms in Delhi don't realise the direction in which the (electoral) wind is blowing. Rewa is Tansen's bhoomi. According to legend two girls from my village helped Tansen, I today have come from the same village to help you, I have dedicated my life to the well-being of people." 

"Citizens of this nation are my family, I will never stop from striving for the well-being of the citizens. I derive the strength to do so because women and daughters wish well for me, when I want to bring about a change in the lives of poor people," he added.
