Vijayawada: Union Minister and senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu launched campaign to get second term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In tune with BJP chief Amit Shah who is currently on a 95-day long tour across the country to prepare the party for the 2019 elections, Venkaiah Naidu stressed the need to give another term for Modi to transform and strengthen India in the world.
Venkaiah Naidu said that several countries in the world were looking towards India after Modi became Prime Minister. The country was marching towards growth on all fronts with the slogan of Making of Developed India (MODI), he asserted. The revolutionary decisions taken by Modi in the last three and a half years have already transformed the country, he said and added that the Modi government is clean from corruption and scandals which were order of the day during the Congress-led UPA government.
Venkaiah Naidu said that the BJP had secured second place in 120 Lok Sabha Constituencies during the 2014 elections. Amit Shah was now touring these constituencies to strengthen the party and win them in the next round of elections. He further added that the BJP was trying to expand its base in Andhra Pradesh despite being an alliance partner in the State with the ruling TDP. The party would make use of every hour for the next two years and strengthen its base before reviewing the alliance with the TDP, if required.
The Union Minister justified Prime Minister Modi’s meeting with YSR Congress president Jaganmohan Reddy and said that there was nothing to find fault with it. He took exception to the TDP leaders criticizing Prime Minister for the meeting and said that those who have criticized Modi have no political knowledge and experience.
