New Delhi, March 3: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was in the limelight while delivering his 50-minute-long speech at the BJP conclave in New Delhi on Sunday, March 3.
Beginning from Gujarat development stories to Manmohan Singh-led UPA government's inability to take the nation to a better position, Modi mentioned everything in his speech.
"Nothing can save the Congress. But to save the nation, we have to stand united and present ourselves to the people," said Modi.
The Gujarat CM also asserted that the BJP has the power what UPA does not have.
Speaking about the party's Prime Ministerial candidate, Modi said, "It does not matter who is the PM candidate. We don't have the right to disappoint the nation."
Modi, who is also expected to get a place at BJP's central team ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha elections, criticised Manmohan Singh while asserting that Pranab Mukherjee would have been a better PM than the present one. Taking a dig at the Gandhi family, Modi said, "The Congress tradition is to sacrifice the interests of the country for one family. They even sacrifice the interests of the party." "I feel if Pranab Mukherjee was the Prime Minister instead of Manmohan Singh, we would have been where we are...Pranab Mukherjee has a connect with the people, understands the problems of India...but if he succeeded, then what would happen to the family," added the CM.
Meanwhile, micro-blogging site Twitter was flooded with tweets on Modi's speech. Hash tags related to his speech such as Narendra Modi, Namo, BJP Council were trending on the top of Twitter.
