PM Modi reaches Solapur to inaugurate various development projects
Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday targeted the Congress, accusing it of corruption and warned that “this Chowkidar (watchman) will never sleep and continue to catch thieves”. PM reached Solapur in Maharashtra to lay foundation stone of 30,000 houses under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and the four-lane section of the Solapur-Tuljapur-Osmanabad highway.
“Should the ‘chowkidar’ go ahead courageously or not? He never sleeps. However dark it may be, he goes to catch thieves. It is your blessings which gives him the strength to do this and he (chowkidar) will continue undeterred in the fight against graft. He will make them accountable for every paise belonging to the country,” Modi thundered at a public rally.
This Solapur-Tuljapur-Osmanabad section of NH-52, will help improve the connectivity of Solapur, with the Marathwada region of Maharashtra.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Solapur to launch the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) poll campaign in Maharashtra, with the inauguration of several infrastructure projects in Solapur.
In Agra, the foundation stones for the following projects will be laid:
Integrated Command and Control Centre for Agra Smart City.

He said the recently deported James Christian Michel had made many “shocking revelations” and according to media reports he was also lobbying for other companies’ fighter jets.
“Now, we have to investigate how the Congress is involved in all this. They are spreading lies about me and trying to scare me, but this is Modi and he is made of different material altogether,” Modi said, appealing for public support to his war against corruption.
Earlier, he said that the upper castes quota bill passed by the Lok Sabha on Tuesday was a “historic decision” and a slap on the face of those spreading lies and indulging in ‘minority quota politics.’
“Lies were being spread that the reservations available to Dalits, tribals and OBCs were sought to be removed… by those playing ‘minority quota politics’. But we have ensured that none of these are disturbed and given an additional 10 percent. This is a fitting reply to those spreading canards,” said Modi.
