Gujarat Assembly elections 2017: PM Narendra Modi to address 4 rallies today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Modi also castigated senior Congress leader and lawyer Kapil Sibal for seeking deferment of hearing of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute till after the 2019 general elections. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday took a dig at Congress by making light of the fact that cyclone Ockhi fizzled out over the Arabian sea before threatening to make landfall with Gujarat. Why does he have to link Ram Mandir with elections? "They are least bothered about the nation", Modi said. On the campaign trail in Gujarat, Modi recalled how his government made a decision to oppose "triple talaq" in the Supreme Court risking a possible backlash in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

On Tuesday, hours after the hearing in the Supreme Court, BJP president Amit Shah raised the issue of Mr. Sibal's plea, while asking Mr. Gandhi to make his position clear.

Modi also said that the Congress-led government always played politics with the backward communities, including tribals and OBCs.

"Rahul ji is visiting temples in Gujarat but on the other hand Kapil Sibal is being used to delay Ram janmbhoomi case. The Congress has double standards on the issue". In an attempt to reach out to Muslims women, Modi said Parliament would pass a law that would provide jail sentence to those resorting to instant divorce.

New bank rules are kind without being weak
They set limits on how far banks can diverge from regulatory requirements to keep financial buffers against losses. Mario Draghi said the so-called "Basel III" reforms will improve confidence in banking systems.

In contrast to what the opposition leaders say, Mr Modi said, his government is working for the poor people and therefore undertook major policy programmes like Jan Dhan under which bank accounts were opened for the poor people and also brought in drastic change in the life of poor and rural women by providing them gas cylinders.

"Everything is not about elections". "When the triple talaq matter was in Supreme Court, the government had to put their affidavit". Establishing a local connect, Modi said: "There was a time people said "dikri ne banduke dejo pann Dhanduke na deta (give your daughter to the gun (kill her), but do not get her married to one from Dhandhuka)' due to water shortage".

The latest opinion poll on Tuesday predicted that it is going to be a neck-and-neck contest between the two parties in the state where the BJP has been in power for the last 22 years. "There are some words that the young generation do not even know. It doesn't behove the status of a Prime Minister", Sibal said.
