PM Modi: You have to vote for one chowkidar – Modi
PM Modi: There is a long list of candidates for the chair of the Prime Minister. But who, out of all of them, will be able to eliminate terrorism successfully?
PM Modi: The Congress has said that they will remove Army from Jammu and Kashmir, do you think they will be able to eliminate terrorism like that?
PM Modi: The Opposition says that the poor join the army because they have no other means of income. You tell me, is it fair to say so? A jawan joins the Army not to for money and food, but to take a bullet for the security of Mother India.
PM Modi: We are so committed to the health and safety of women, which can be seen through – Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Ujjwala scheme, rural electrification, Swachch Bharat Scheme, – we have also approved death penalty for heinous crimes against women, such as rape of minors.
PM Modi: Government E-Marketing (GEM) has been commissioned so that farmers can sell their byproducts online.
PM Modi: We have also given KISAN credit card for those who engage in animal husbandry.
PM Modi: Not only agriculture, but the BJP is also coming up with alternative schemes for tribal farmers, horticulture, irrigation and fisheries.
PM Modi: The poor should lead better lives, the farmers should get their fair share, this is what the BJP. However, the Congress is stopping us from doing so. We had promised direct cash transfer to farmers under the PM KISAN scheme. But, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh has not given a list of farmers to us. Because, they are scared that if they do, they'll look like fraudsters. That is why the farmers in MP are not getting any benefits.
PM Modi: In the recent raids, crores worth of cash was found at the house of a Congress leader. The money was traced back to Tughlaq road in Delhi, where another Congress bigshot lives. Then that money, which is the money of the public, was found to have been used for the campaigning of the 'naamdaar'.
PM Modi: The Congress had promised farm loan waivers. I want to ask my farmer friends here, how many have gotten farm loan waivers? I want to ask how many tribal farmers even get formal loans? These farm loan waivers are for a select few friends of the Congress.
PM Modi: I want to give an example of the Congress' fraud from Madhya Pradesh itself. They had promised that they will reduce the cost of electricity. In doing that, they cut the electricity that people were getting. Now people are getting much less electricity than which was distributed during Shivraj Singh Chouhan's leadership.

In 2014, 150 candidates contested the Lok Sabha polls from the national capital, of which 13 were women. Of the 13, only one -- Meenakshi Lekhi of the BJP -- got elected. (PTI)
