Promising to make Jharkhand the number one state in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the government would rein in all the looters of minerals and benefit the state to the tune of Rs 20,000 crore in the next few years.

He said the on-going Assembly election in Jharkhand will decide the future of the mineral-rich state and appealed to the people of Jharkhand not to treat it as an ordinary poll.

Likening the tribal state, formed in 2000, to children in the age group of 13-14 years who grow up slowly but mature fast between the ages of 13-18 yrs, he said Jharkhand too has entered the stage where it will take off fast and promised to help it grow and become the number one state of the country if bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was voted to power.

“This election will decide the fate of the state and help it move on the path of development, if you vote for a majority government.
“Jharkhand has enough power in terms of its mineral deposits and can lead the country but unfortunately, the state was looted since its creation 14 years ago,” he said.

Highlighting the coal policy framed by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government, the prime minister said it “would rein in all the looters of minerals and benefit Jharkhand to the tune of Rs 20,000 crore in the next few years”.

Accusing Congress of failing to mend its ways despite the debacle it suffered in the parliamentary poll, Modi said why should the people of the country vote for it when it was not ready to change.

He said India is being respected across the world because it now has a strong and stable government and asked the people to vote for a majority government headed by BJP in Jharkhand.

Addressing an election rally here, he said the country has rejected the dynastic rule and voted BJP to power with full majority.
