UP Election 2022: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today slammed the opposition parties while campaigning for the sixth phase of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2022. The prime minister said that the election is between the dynasts and the nationalists, allegedly referring to the opposition Samajwadi Party, Congress vs the BJP battle. PM Modi said that there is a difference between rashtra bhakti (devotion to nation) and pariwar bhakti (devotion to family).
“This election is between ‘Rashtravadis and Parivarwadis’…Remember how you had to take your vehicles to Gorakhpur in medical emergencies because the then government didn’t pay any heed to people’s medical needs here. Many innocent kids died due to brain fever…,” said PM Modi in Deoria while adding that the BJP government had worked to build new medical colleges in every district.
He said, “Some time ago, I laid foundation stones of 9 medical colleges in UP including Deoria’s Maharshi Devraha Baba Autonomous State Medical College. This medical college could have been constructed before, but these ‘Pariwardis’ never prioritized you…We have made 18 new medical colleges in the state, and work is underway for 20. We also set up AIIMS in Gorakhpur. We are also trying that the poor children get to study medical, engineering in their own language.”
