Urging youth, specifically between 18 and 28 in Bihar, to vote for a strong government in Delhi to ensure their bright future, BJP’s PM candidate Narendra Modi urged them to reject the “weak” Congress government.

Modi was addressing a rally in Darbhanga in Bihar, on Thursday. Darbhanga and Madhubani Lok Sabha constituencies in Mithilanchal area have a large number of Muslim voters and the BJP had won them in 2009. Modi’s rally in was seen as significant in this light, and in view of RJD fielding Muslim candidates on both who seem to have an edge over the sitting MPs.

Slamming the UPA, Modi said, “In their 2009 election manifesto, the Congress said that they will give employment to 10 crore youths. I want to ask the youth of Darbhanga, did they give you a job? He said, “It does not hurt a 75-year-old man if five years of his life go waste. But for a youngster, whose age is between 18 to 28, if five days of his life go waste, the entire picture of his life changes. I want to make a special plea to young people between 18 and 28. If at this phase, a useless government is formed in Delhi..what will happen to your life? That is why we need a strong government in Delhi, a government that changes the future of the youth of this country.
