Ranchi: Union Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu Wednesday claimed that a ‘Modi wave’ is “sweeping” across the country as the people want continuation of developmental work that they saw in the last five years.
“Electioneering has gathered momentum. I am travelling across the country, and I can claim that Modi wave is sweeping from east to west and north to south. The people themselves are eager to retain Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a second term to carry on the developmental work seen in every sector in the last five years,” Prabhu told a press conference here.
Prabhu, who visited Hazaribagh to address a poll meeting after BJP candidate and Union Minister of state for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha filed nomination from Hazaribagh seat, said that the Modi government is focused on developmental works through “saab ka saath, saab ka vikas” (together with all and development for all) mantra.
“You have seen Rs 2.75 lakh crore was earmarked for railways in the first three years. Compare it with the budget of previous decades, which totalled only Rs 3 lakh crore. Now the railway budget crossed Rs 8 lakh crore. Developmental works have also been there in other sectors too,” Prabhu said.
Claiming that the opposition has neither leader nor policy, Prabhu said the BJP has underlined its vision for the next five to 10 years for the development of the country.
