LS Polls: Oppn convinced of loss, says PM Modi

‘Spread message of MeraPehla Vote DeshKeLiye’

Thiruvananthapuram, New Delhi: Prime Minister NarendraModi claimed on Tuesday that the opposition, convinced it won’t win the upcoming LokSabha polls, resorts to abusing him as it allegedly lacks a roadmap for the nation’s progress.

Modi, speaking at the conclusion ceremony of the BJP state unit’s padayatra at the Central Stadium here, urged Kerala’s people to bless the saffron party with seats in double digits in the 2024 LS polls.

He further said the BJP never sees a state from the perspective of vote-bank.

Modi claimed that over the last 10 years, Kerala has benefited from development like other BJP-ruled states.

He said it was his guarantee to make all possible efforts to realise the dreams and expectations of the people of Kerala.

The PM said it was ‘Modiyude guarantee’ (Modi’s guarantee) to make India the third largest economy in the world as well as eradicate poverty and corruption from the country.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister NarendraModi urged the people to spread the message about a campaign titled ‘MeraPehla Vote DeshKeLiye’ among the first-time voters.

A campaign titled ‘MeraPehla Vote DeshKeLiye’ is underway to spread awareness among the first-time voters and encourage young voters to exercise their democratic right. Union Minister Anurag Thakur posted the ‘MeraPehla Vote DeshKeLiye’ anthem on his X handle and asked everyone to share it.

Responding to the Union Minister’s post, Prime Minister NarendraModi on Tuesday said, “Let us make our electoral process even more participative. I call upon people from all walks of life to spread the message, in their own style, among first time voters – MeraPehla Vote DeshKeLiye.”

During the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme on Sunday, the Prime Minister interacted with the first-time voters in the country and said that “India takes pride in its youth power, filled with enthusiasm and energy”.

Addressing the youth, the Prime Minister had said that the more they participate in the electoral process, the more beneficial it will be for the country.

The Prime Minister urged first-time voters to cast their votes in record numbers and said that the 18th LokSabha will be a symbol of youth aspirations.

He said that amid the hustle and bustle of general elections, the youth should not only be a part of political activities but also remain vigilant and engaged in discussions and debates.

“Remember, my first vote is for the country,” said the Prime Minister.

PM Modi said that the Election Commission has launched a campaign, ‘My First Vote-For the Country’ and appealed to the first-time voters to come out in record numbers to vote through this special campaign.
