The Narendra Modi government marked its two years in government with a rally in Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur. The rally saw the participation of a number of senior faces of the government and the BJP. The event also served as a platform for BJP leaders to take aim at rivals of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections scheduled to be held next year.
"The Congress is vanishing fast. It has already been finished in the plains, and remains only in the hilly areas. There too, it will soon disappear," said Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. "The 14 years of vanvaas (exile) have come to an end for the BJP in Uttar Pradesh," he added.
Modi himself however took a softer line on the election. His speech focused more on what his government has done over the past two years. "Before we came to power, the newspapers were filled with stories of one scam or the other every day. Big people were caught in these scams. Since we came to power, have there been any scams against the government? Have our opponent even levelled allegations against us?" Modi asked the enthusiastic crowd. Modi also said every move of his government is being watched with eagle eyes. "I welcome that. Every second and every rupee of the government should be accountable," he said.
