The prime minister said that while the Centre wants to help the people of UP, no work can happen if the state government does not cooperate.
Mocking the alliance formed between the ruling Samajwadi Party and Congress, he said, "Congress wale UP sarkar ko badnaam karte the, raaton raat aisa kya ho gaya ki aap unke gale lag gaye?"
He claimed that Rs 4,000 crore had been given to the state government for health aid but they did not spend even Rs 250 crore of the amount. And till the time you don't vote the SCAM out, UP will not be seeing good days.
PM Modi has coined a new acronym- SCAM- which stand for Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh and Mayawati; thus taking a jibe at his rivals in Uttar Pradesh before assembly polls that are scheduled to begin next week.
Invoking Meerut's link to the beginning of the 1857 mutiny against the British, the PM said he had chosen the city to start the "war" against poverty, corrupt forces and land-grabbers.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Meerut Rally said that, "Despite of Uttar Pradesh having so much of potential for development and the youth of UP are still being forced to look for the employment opportunities in the other states of India!"
"It is the people of UP who made me the Prime Minister".
"Everyone has suffered badly in their quest for "achche din"; they had to stand in queues from morning to night to take out their own hard- earned money from banks", he said in another meeting at Auraiya.
Congress spokesperson Tom Vaddakan said: "Let us also tell them the meaning of SCAM in Hindi". Modi said. The PM urged the voters to defeat parties involved in graft and leaders who promoted caste and vote-bank politics. I am Modi. I will not rest and will not allow those with ill-gotten money to rest. He also brought up the surgical strikes by the Indian Army and said some people had politicised it, asking why no soldiers had died.
