“Krishna was born in Uttar Pradesh but made Gujarat his karma bhoomi. I was born in Gujarat but Uttar Pradesh has adopted me. It is a privilege for me. Uttar Pradesh is like ‘mai-baap’. I am not a son who would ditch his mai-baap. I will always care about Uttar Pradesh.

“Despite being an adopted son, it is my duty to develop Uttar Pradesh,” Modi told an election rally here in Uttar Pradesh.

Talking about ISRO creating a world record by successfully putting 104 satellites into orbit, Modi said the world is talking about success of our scientists and the countrymen are feeling proud.

“Everyone is working hard to take the country to new heights but what will happen if Uttar Pradesh lags behind,” he said.

“Samajwadi Party, Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party never thought about the bigger picture. All they did was to serve a select few, guided by political calculations. The fortune of the state can not be changed until it gets rid of these political parties,” Modi added.

In his hour-long address, Modi also took on the state government over the law and order situation, saying it has failed to protect its own people as the state register maximum numbers of killings, while it alone registers 50 per cent cases related to Arms act.
