Siddharthnagar, May 6 UNI | 3 months ago

BJP Prime Ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today appealed to both the Muslims and the Hindus to be united and fight against the problem of poverty conjointly.

"The country can progress only when all the people stay united...the members of both the Hindu and Muslim communities should forget all the differences and maintain brotherhood,"Mr Modi said while addressing an election meeting in this Uttar Pradesh district.

"In fact, they should fight against the problem of poverty and look forward to a better future," he added.

The people should support the BJP for a strong and stable government at the Centre.

"The Congressmen are mocking at me and doubting my capability by calling me a tea-vendor of a backward family, but hailing from a poor or backward family is not a crime," Mr Modi commented.

"I have never done cheap politics or insulted anyone intentionally," he uttered.

Congress will get a befitting reply soon as the family politics is drawing near the end, he stated.

Adding to it, the Gujarat CM said "Yes, I used to run a tea shop, but in democracy even a tea-seller can become the PM."

The youth of today's time is very intelligent and don't believe in the social evils, she said.

Mr Modi was here to campaign in favour of BJP candidate from Dumariyaganj Lok Sabha seat, going to polls in the last phase on May 12.
