‘Does India Want ‘Mantra-Tantra’ Or ‘Loktantra?’ PM Modi in Bihar

SITAMARHI, BIHAR:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a rally in the Sitamarhi district of Bihar, where assembly elections are being held in five phases.


Here are the highlights of his speech:



  • Today is an auspicious day for me because I have reached  Mata Sitamadhi’s home
  • Also because today is Valmiki Jayanti and hundreds of people have come here to support me
  • It is a matter of pride that I got to meet all of you
  • Today is Valmiki Jayanti.. may Mata Sita grant us her blessings
  • It has been 16 months.. and I haven’t taken a single leave
  • For me, this satta is sewa-yagya where I am on duty all the time..
  • Even if my sewa (service) doesn’t reflect on TV or in newspapers.. I can still see it here in the crowds
  • This election will decide the fate of Bihar
  • You have to decide whom to trust for your future
  • If there is anything that can change your future, it is development
  • On one hand there is development, on the other there is opportunism
  • The solution for all problems in Bihar, is not Modi, but development
  • Does India want Mantra-Tantra or Lok Tantra. Bihar can’t be taken back to 18th century
