New Delhi: Cam­paign­ing for the first phase elec­tions in South Ch­hat­tis­garh reached a crescendo on Fri­day, as both the rul­ing BJP and the Con­gress, in­dulged in a slugfest of words against each other. Speak­ing at a rally in the Maoist hot­bed of Jag­dalpur in Bas­tar re­gion and then in Ra­j­nandgaon, Prime Min­is­ter Modi at­tacked Con­gress for back­ing ‘ur­ban Nax­als’. PM Modi claimed that ur­ban Nax­als (a term coined by UPA gov­ern­ment) fanned in­sur­gency through a re­mote con­trol, while liv­ing in the com­fort of their air-con­di­tioned houses in big cities.

“The ur­ban Nax­als live in AC com­fort, travel in big cars and send their chil­dren to study abroad. They dis­rupt peace here us­ing re­mote con­trol. Why is the Con­gress sup­port­ing ur­ban Nax­als who ruin the lives of poor Adi­vasi youth,” PM Modi said.

Con­demn­ing the re­cent mur­ders of a Do­or­dar­shan video jour­nal­ists and se­cu­rity per­son­nel by Maoists, PM Modi asked the pub­lic if it is was ac­cept­able, when the Con­gress lead­ers called them (Maoists) rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies.

He urged the vot­ers to teach a les­son to “dy­nast” Con­gress party that does not think about the fu­ture of peo­ple but its own good. Modi also in­voked Atal Bi­hari Va­j­payee, a na­tive of un­di­vided Mad­hya Pradesh, cred­it­ing him for carv­ing out a sep­a­rate state of Ch­hat­tis­garh.

PM Modi said he has come to Ch­hat­tis­garh on the oc­ca­sion of Bhai Dooj with new pro­pos­als of de­vel­op­ments. “It is our duty since you have en­trusted upon us the re­spon­si­bil­ity of solv­ing your prob­lems and ful­fill­ing your dreams,” PM Modi said. The PM al­leged that dur­ing first 10 years of the Ra­man Singh gov­ern­ment, the Con­gress in the Cen­tre con­spired to en­sure that no de­vel­op­ment took place in Ch­hat­tis­garh.
