Here are the higlight sof his speech at Rajouri:
4:03 p.m.: In anticipation of the Modi’s addresal at the rally, a huge crowd is present at the venue
4:37 p.m.: I have come before I was PM, CM; i used to participate in RSS events, used to visit border areas. People in few numbers of 50′s and 60′s used to come. I have seen many rallied but not this kind of crowd.
4: 42 p.m.To seek blessings from people is equally important as it is from God. And I think no other leader would have had the fortune of seeking blessing from such a massive crowd. And it is your blessing that is my strength.
4: 47 p.m.: Your sorrows are mine and I never get tired from working for my own people. When the floods came and washed away a bus full of passengers, I arrived the same very day. Many innocents died and government doesn’t even have any details or estimate of the loss of human lives and properties. Would you want such a government?
4:51 p.m.: I have come in July, August, September, October, November and now in December. I have come in 2014 and i will come in 2015 too. This is a land of sufis that connect the country in one fabric and I salute you. People wouldn’t even know where Rajouri is, but it is the people of this land that have taken bullet in their chest whenever Pakistan attacked India. The people of this land don’t have uniforms on their body, but they are equally strong as the soldiers of the country. I salute to these people.
4:58p.m.: We must stand up for the sacrifices of the police men alert in these areas. I ask you if Rajouri was connected to railway network, the transport of armies in the times of war would have been facilitated. The government only talked and stalled these projects. I want to complete these works I need your help in making ‘ Kalakote’ a heaven like ‘Kashmir’.
5.04p.m.: We will harness the hydro-power J&K can provide, we will install world’s highest solar power in Ladakh and we will resurrect the Tourism industry in the state; for the country wants to visit not only in Kashmir, but also in areas like these: Poonch, Kathua,etc. When tourism industry establishes, it encourages many small scale industries. I want to revive tourism so that it attracts not only national,but international tourists so that every single person may stand a chance at having employment because of it.
5:10p.m.: I want One India. I love Jammu and Kashmir as much as I love Gujarat. We want ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas’. We will develop with everyone. The bad days are gone and J&K’s good days have arrived. The massive participation from people of Jammu and Kashmir is over whelming. The mere press of a button on the EVM machines is very powerful. It’s first time that these elections is a world-wide talk and more famous than any other elections in India. Jammu and Kashmir’s elections are the most talked about by every politician in the world. Because the Jammu which saw mere 5-7 % of voter turn out, that very Jammu has now over 70% voter participation and you have provided the testimony of faith in the Democratic process and you have chosen ballots over bullets. You have only shown the way to rest of the country that democracy is the real power. And that is why, Jammu and Kashmir’s elections are the most crucial election in the country.
5:20 p.m.: We want a clear mandate to bring Jammu and Kashmir at par with the rest of the country. These so-called ‘political pandits’ are confused with your over-whelming response here and I want people of Rajouri to break all record of voter participation and come out and vote massively. I thank you.
