Vote for change, vote for Modi: Advani

Ahmednagar, Apr 1, 2014: Days after ending the row over his parliamentary seat that brought to fore strains in his relations with Narendra Modi, BJP veteran LK Advani kicked off the campaign for Lok Sabha polls, saying the party’s PM nominee would revive the process of development started by Atal Behari Vajpayee.

“Vote for Modi, vote for change,” Advani said, addressing his maiden campaign rally for the ensuing polls at Shevgaon for sitting BJP MP Dinesh Gandhi.

“The nation needs and expects action and not mere slogans. So, vote for change, vote for Modi,” he said.

Modi changed the face of Gujarat through the Narmada project, industrialisation and providing water to every farmer, besides improving electric supply, education, public distribution system and the law and order situation, he said.

Vajpayee and the NDA had tried its best to fulfil every commitment, right from the Pokharan nuclear test to providing basic amenities, he said.

Advani described Manmohan Singh as India’s weakest prime minister.
