  • From the land of sacrifice, even today, soldiers die fighting terrorists.
  • It was cool, but the temperatures have been since soaring in the elections in UP.
  • People sometimes forget their ethics and culture and commit such sins that are unforgivable.
  • When the Army conducted surgical strikes, it destroyed enemy camps and before sunrise came back to our mother land.
  • This was a very courageous and planned to the very minute detail.
  • Surgical strikes by India is being studied by the world over.
  • But there are some who lost in their political greed started questioning the Army, said Modi should give proof. I want to tell them, go to Jaunpur and meet the mothers of whose sacrificed their lives for the motherland. And you dare question them?
  • Chief Minister says kaam bolta hai. So I thought I should read the UP state government's website.
  • So I read it in public. The bad condition that UP is in courtesy SP was made public. The SP was exposed.
  • The election results will be out soon. It will be a wipeout for SP, BSP, Congress. The BJP will win.
  • UP will celebrate Holi on March 13. I promise that at the first meeting after BJP is voted to power, the work to forgo famer loans will be taken.
  • BJP is winning the first five phases of UP elections, it's your job to give us an absolute majority.
  • Give the BJP enough votes so that five years later you can question me. You give me a majority government and I will give you accountability.
  • Do you get electricity 24/7? Tell me the truth. SP says you do.
  • They are not interested in giving electricity in Jaunpur but only in Saifai
  • In Jaunpur, after the sun sets, can your mother and sisters step out of the house? Should they not have the right to live peacefully as men do?
  • When I banned notes, SP, BSP and Congress had a big problem.
  • Their game is over now. It's been 70 years since independence and they will no longer have their reign. They have only looted. I am not saying it as the PM, but as the watchman.
