Live: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Speech In Allahabad Ahead Of UP Election's Phase-IV

Uttar Pradesh Election: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing a rally in Orai, Allahabad.

Orai:  A day after the third phase of the assembly elections concluded in 69 constituencies across 12 districts in Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is holding a public meeting in Orai. The fourth phase of the election, scheduled for Thursday, will witness voters in 53 constituencies across 12 districts, including Raebareli, Allahabad and Jhansi. Yesterday, at a rally in Fatehpur, the Prime Minister had mocked Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for trying up with the Congress. He also took potshots at the ruling Samajwadi Party government for the lack of basic amenities such as electricity in the state. He also said that discrimination on basis of caste and religion is one of the biggest issues that plague Uttar Pradesh.

The high-octane assembly elections are currently underway in India's most populous state, which is expected to lay the groundwork for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. While the Samajwadi Party seeks to retain the state, this time with the Congress, the BJP and the Mayawati-led BSP are fighting to make a comeback.

Here are the live updates of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech in Orai:
  • Ram, Ram to everyone.
  • I have had the good fortune of coming here over the years.
  • The last time when I took the yatra from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, I had come here.
  • You have come here in large numbers to bless the BJP, and I thank you.
  • The election is not just about what the government or what minister will come to power. It is much bigger than that.
  • UP's development is in tatters. But Bundelkhand has been hit the worst.
  • Such governments have been elected in UP; they have destroyed you.
  • SP, BSP, Congress - they are different sides of the same coin.
  • Don't listen to them. Don't even listen to me. But ask your soul.
  • Whoever has come to power, they have all robbed you.
  • The BJP promises you: the next government will UP will have the provision to listen to Bundelkhand.
  • Special measures will be taken to solve the problems of Bundelkhand.
  • After the BJP government is formed in UP, a special board for Bundelkhand's development will be formed under the chief minister. A weekly record will be sought from it.
  • At 8 pm on November 8, I said the ones who have looted the poor will have to pay back.
  • Aren;t the SP and BSP staunch rivals? But I was amazed when all the opposition parties started speaking in one voice when I banned 500 and 1000 rupee notes and asked for records of black money hoarders.
  • Behenji (Mayawati) said there was not enough planning. I asked her, planning by the government or you?
  • She said a week should have been given. Had I done that, the people who looted would have vanished. The money would not have come to banks.
  • Her problem is that she did not get enough time to prepare.
  • Her question is why the accounts of her brother are being talked about. She accuses that it is so because of the elections.
  • No, Behenji. It is because you deposited 100 crore just after the notes ban.
  • BSP no longer Bahujan Samaj is now Behenji Sampatti Party
