BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Sunday said he will act as ‘chowkidaar’ of the country and ensure the use of funds for “optimum development works” if he became the prime minister.

Addressing the ‘Fateh rally’ here, Modi expressed his concern over the drug menace eating up youngsters in Punjab, called Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal his “political guru”, and said there was no truth in reports of displacement of Sikh farmers from Kutch area of Gujarat. “No Sikh farmer will go out of Gujarat and if any officer dares to do any mistake, that officer will have to leave but not my Sikh brothers,” he said.

He said, “Gujarat is as much for any other Indian as it is for me and I owe a lot to my Punjabi farmers who are settled in Kutch. They are the ones who have made that barren land fertile. So one should stop listening to the rivals (Congress) who are misguiding you on this issue.”

In an effort to strike a chord with the large farming community in the state, the Gujarat CM said, “If chosen to power, we will divide the Food Corporation of India (FCI) into three parts — procurement, management and distribution. This is the only way to get optimum utilisation of the foodgrain which are at the moment being destroyed by being kept in the open or are rotting in the warehouses. In order to make the economy of any country strong, one needs to have three pillars of equal strength: one-third each for agriculture, manufacturing and service sectors,” he said.

The BJP president Rajnath Singh said, “The NDA government will be implementing farmer income insurance scheme once it comes to power whereby MSP will be announced much before sowing of a crop. A separate channel only on agriculture, a separate budget on agriculture, easy loans at 1-2% rate of interest for self-employment schemes and much more will be in the offing.”

Showering praise on Badal, Rajnath said, “Parkash Singh Badal was the first NDA partner to support Modi’s name as PM”, to which Badal responded, “So he (Modi) should now be called as NDA’s prime ministerial candidate, rather than the BJP’s alone.”

The three-hour rally, held on the Jagraon Sugar Mill grounds, attracted thousands from across the state and during Modi’s one-hour speech the audience remained in their seats although the programme was running behind schedule.

Modi did not forget to target Congress, calling it “the ABCD of corruption’’ while Badal said the coming elections were a jang-e-azadi (struggle for independence) to get the masses freed from the clutches of corruption of Congress leaders. Targeting Rahul Gandhi over ‘one rank, one pension’ issue, Modi said, “The UPA government announced this in their last budget and not in the previous nine budgets. So it is a mere drama, but it will be formally implemented by ‘patriots’ like us when we will come to power in a few months.”

    The deaths of Rajiv and Indira did not matter, only the crimes against Satish Chandra matter. Both partited in the CIA’s crimes against me and both were killed by CIA-RAW because of my influence on them. I was the target in killing them; they themselves did not matter. Nehru was a lifelong British agent, Indira and Rajiv worked for the CIA and so do all Indian politicians. Narendra Modi should be whipped and hanged for giving a bouquet of roses to an American diplomat in exchange for a strip search and cavity search of an Indian diplomat. P. Chidambaram should be whipped and hanged for speaking positively about Harvard University where the world’s greatest scientist and greatest Indian of all time was publicly tortured for being an Indian. The Italian woman and son should be whipped and hanged for partiting in crimes against him with the help of the CIA’s 24-hour satellite surveillance of him for the past 37 years. Arvind Kejriwal and Mamata Banerjee should be whipped and hanged for ociating with CIA-RAW agent Hazare, a follower of M. K. hi who was a lifelong British agent and a homoual who wrote to his white master “How completely you have taken possession of my body; it is slavery with a vengeance”. You do not shake hands with any representative of a country whose potion will be made to eat one another till no one remains alive. Filthy s Manmohan Singh, P. Chidambaram and Raghuram Rajan made India a beggar and slave at the G-20 urging “advanced nations, like the US, to take heed of countries vulnerable to the stimulus withdrawal” and “advanced nations must recognise the impact of their monetary policy decisions on other economies and "be prepared to act if things get out of kilter" “. Why? Because “The reduction in stimulus, known as tapering, may affect capital flows to emerging markets and impact their currencies”. Why do you want to give ownership and control of India to foreign enemies when India has all the investment capital it wants by simply printing the money which is what the U.S. is doing stealing my proposal about money -- see ‘How India’s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year or More’ : HowIndiasEconomyCanGrowDOTblogspotDOTcom ? These filthy s Manmohan Singh and Raghuram Rajan must also be whipped and hanged along with filthy s Amartya Sen, Subramanian Swamy -- who were both brought to Harvard and one of them given a Nobel prize expressly to provide cover for the crimes against me -- and anyone else in public life you can think of. It is not too late to whip and hang filthy s Vajpayee and George Fernandes both of whom have been faking illness and an inability to speak to avoid answering questions about their partition in the CIA’s crimes against me. Nor is it too late to whip and hang filthy Ram Jethmalani, who was also brought to Harvard to provide cover for crimes against me and rewarded with a half a million dollar per year law practice and filthy L. K Advani who, while Home Minister, was brought, under pain of being prosecuted for the Babri Masjid demolition, to C.I.A. Headquarters to make India’s Home Ministry a partint in the C.I.A.’s crimes against me. Filthy Kejriwal wants to provide a few services at lower rates but my proposal about money shows how to provide all goods and services free of charge to everyone. Filthy M. Karunanidhi should be whipped and hanged; he was having Indian currency printed in China with the help of the Reserve Bank of India chief to provide some freebies to the people of Tamil Nadu as I described in my press releases but kept the crimes against me covered up otherwise everything could be provided free of charge to everyone in India. Filthy Jayalalitha should be whipped and hanged for saying she has a vision for India but keeping quiet about the crimes against me because of which India will remain poor, weak and enslaved despite her vision.
