Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the parivartan rally in Bahraich, Uttar Pradesh, via phone call as his helicopter was unable to land due to foggy weather condition. This is the fifth parivartan rally by Prime Minister Modi in Uttar Pradesh as part of the BJP’s campaign for next year’s assembly elections.

PM Modi was the national general secretary of BJP when he visited Bahraich in 2001 for the first time and later in November 2013 for the second time.

PM Modi has earlier addressed four parivartan rallies at Ghazipur, Agra, Kushinagar and Moradabad. His next rally is scheduled to be held in Kanpur on December 19.

The Bhartiya Janta Party is running a campaign led by party president Amit Shah, eyeing victory in the state. It had earlier won an unprecedented 71 out of 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. However, the party failed to perform in Bihar elections and won only 53 out of 243 seats.

Uttar Pradesh holds paramount importance in Indian politics because it is one of the most populous states in the country and can influence the Lok Sabha election results.

    Modiji are your rallies in UP sponsored by white money?or black money? You are a brilliant pied Piper who speaks to the public which can't put questions to you.But in Parliament,the Parliamentarians will question you?Hence it's easy for you to say you are not allowed to speak,if you speak,you have to answer also.But right now you have no answer to the problem of the note exchangers.

                  PM Modi wants to commit government to empowering poor people, yes Ofcourse but with a small caveat though, with a gun on people's head, another gun on Rahul hi's, after taking all their money and disposing off his own money. So gangsta in fact double gangsta. PM Modi then wants to jump to a podium and do name calling and mudslinging. Yes Ofcourse but with a small caveat though, he want to do that with his signature bizzare hand gestures. Biggest name calla and biggest mud slinga.

                            His party leaders in various regions of India are being arrested in money laundering, which are in New notes. He won't even talk about it. Really it's double standard politics. People should understand his empty rhetorics.

                                      Modi flied 1000s of kilometres in helicoptors and airplans during 2014 ralies. He is still doing it. Where does he get so much money from, if he is a fakir as he claims to be?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;When Congress was in power, it gave somuch trouble to the opposition parties. It seems BJP is doing the same since it came to power. Power corrupts. There is a saying, whoever goes to Lanka, becomes a Ravana. So true for Mr. Modi and BJP. Modi was a poor man. Now he got power and position, he is using it for giving suffering to the poor and opposition parties. What a shame.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;General potion of India had so much hope on Modi and BJP. Thus they gave somany seats to them and so much power. But alas, they are misusing it to bring so much suffering to those same voters.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Mr. Modi an BJP should really bring all political parties, including BJP, under RTI and appoint Lok Pal as soon as possible, if he is really wants to eradicate corruption.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Everyone liked Modi so much. But due to his ill-planned demonitization and his contineous arrogance, is erradicating all their good wishes. What a shame.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;He should use his mobile phone to address all BJP cadres during his rallies and stop wasting crores of rupees on pandals, helicoptors, airplanes, security etc. during those so-called paribartan rallies. That will save everyone going outside their homes during this harsh winter and also help lessen traffic jams and save valuable tax payers money being wasted.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;That's when Modi can really claim that he is serious about poor and black economy.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Jai Bharat!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Jai Bharat!

                                        SP and BSP suffering due to demonetization. But where is BJP getting all the money from to fly in helicoptors every day for rallies. Each hour of a helicoptor costs 2 lakhs.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Why BJP doesn't come under RTI act, so w of India can know where it gets all the money from?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Why BJP government didn't appoint Lok Pal yet, even after coming to power since 2.5 years?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Poor are suffering. Informal economy is suffering. BJP promised millions of jobs for the India's youth during 2014 campaign. But by demonitization, it took away millions of informal jobs, relied mostly by the illiterates and poor.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;More than 80% India's economy relies on cash. One man destro the w economy just like that. What arrogance.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Why doesn't BJP asnwer questions of the opposition parties, who are elected by the people, in the parliament?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;During the inaugaration, Modi paid obeisances at the steps of the Indian parliament, now he is disrespecting it by not answering the questions of the opposition parties in the same parliament. What arrogance.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;People of India reduced Congress to 44 seats due to their arrogance. The voters can do the same to BJP and NDA, due to their arrogance too. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;So BJP better take advise from expert economists and do the needful to aliviate the sufferings of the poor and the Indian economy.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Jai Hind!
