Kurnool: The April 11 elections would herald a “new sunrise” and see the “son set” in Andhra Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said here Friday, in a fiery attack aimed at Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and his son Nara Lokesh.
Your vote will make the sun rise and the son set. Do you not want the sunrise of AP? Should not the son set happen, the Prime Minister asked people at a largely-attended election campaign rally of the BJP in this historic town that was the capital of the erstwhile Andhra state in the 1950s. Modi said he was told that it was the first time that a Prime Minister visited Kurnool.
Peoples vote on April 11 – for the simultaneous elections to Lok Sabha and the state assembly — would ensure the double engine growth for Andhra Pradesh, with a BJP government at the Centre and also at the state, Modi remarked. Your vote will also help build a New India that enables equal opportunities for all. Help strengthen this by voting the BJP, he appealed.
In his 25-minute address, the Prime Minister elaborated what all the Central government did for AP in the last five years and how the rulers of the state focused only “on filling” their own coffers. I could have definitely done a lot more for the state had I got the required support of the state government.
