Polls will be people's movement: Narendra Modi

New Delhi, Jan 5 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Sunday said the 2014 Lok Sabha polls has turned into a people's movement.

"After independence this is the first poll that will destroy all old traditions..Usually polls are fought by parties and candidates. This election has become a people's movement," Modi said while addressing at the foundation day celebrations of yoga guru Baba Ramdev's Bharat Swabhiman Trust at Talkatora Stadium here.

He shared the stage with Baba Ramdev.

Modi promised to review and reform the country's taxation system.

"This taxation system has become a burden on common man. It needs a reform and the BJP is working on it," the Gujarat CM said.

Baba Ramdev backed Modi and urged people to elect him as the Prime Minister of the country.

"I had two options. On one hand I have Modi and on the other hand I have 'shehzada' (Rahul Gandhi) who has not performed for the past 12 years. Send Modi to the Parliament with 300 MPs so that he can become the Prime Minister of the country," Baba Ramdev said.

Modi often referred Gandhi as'shehzada' which means 'prince' in English language.
