In barely eight days, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address as many as 25 rallies across Maharashtra and his party BJP seems to be banking heavily on these rallies to boost its performance in the October 15 Assembly polls in the state, especially after its bitter parting with long-time ally Shiv Sena.

Modi’s arrival seems to have enthused party’s rank-and-file which had been in a state of confusion and disarray after the blow it suffered during seat-sharing talks with the Sena.

In gullies, streets and rallies, BJP leaders and supporters were busy raising the slogan, “Deshamadhe Modi, aata Maharashtra madhe pan Modi (Modi government in the country, BJP government in the state as well),” as the Prime Minister began his campaign on Saturday.

Modi’s first rally, held at Atalji Maidan in Beed on Saturday afternoon, drew what BJP leaders said was “a massive response.”

The scene was no different Aurangabad where the crowd had begun to fill the rally ground hours before Modi landed in the evening.

    Cancer, AIDS, TB, Diabetes etc. patients have to pay many a times more to get the drugs they were getting. stan's firing killed seven civilians just a few days ago.And what was Modi's reaction to this?? Speaking in dozens of rallies so that people can vote for BJP.And, his speeches include lying and emotionally blackmailing sentences for people of the state so that they can vote for him. For e.g., he said "" in Maharashtra.How can one speak such things after becoming country's PM? At least he should spare the people for keeping a clean image.A waste of time, money, and his lack of concern for India's people is clearly visible..
