Prime Minister Narendra Modi was addressing an election rally in Haridwar ahead of the Uttarakhand Assembly election scheduled to take place on February 15.
In his opening statement, he said Uttarakhand is a Dev Bhoomi, but does this land deserve a corrupt government? “The corruption of the Government in Uttarakhand is well known and even then the party leadership is not bothered,” he said “Congress kay logon ko kehta hoon, zubaan sambhaal ke rakho nahi toh mere paas aapki poori janmapatri padi hui hai”.

Speaking about surgical strikes, the prime minister criticised the opposition for politicising the issue and added,”Our armed forces showed what they are capable of, during surgical strikes. Yet, some people do not accept that and want to play politics.”
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi visited Uttarakhand on Thursday. Attacking PM Modi for his “insulting” remarks on former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Rahul said, “when Narendra Modi speaks about Manmohan Singh in this manner he is not talking only about Manmohan Singh, he is talking about every citizen of India.”
