New Delhi: Targeting Samajwadi Party ahead of the upcoming assembly election from Gorakhpur, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that ‘Lal topiwale’ are red alert for Uttar Pradesh.
Modi was addressing a rally in Gorakhpur after inaugurating three mega projects, including an AIIMS and the fertiliser plant. The Prime Minister said the Samajwadi Party wanted to form the government in the state to show mercy to terrorists and set them free.
“Today, the entire UP very well knows that those wearing red caps are concerned about red beacon (‘laal batti’) and they are not bothered about your pain and sorrows,” PM Modi said.
“The red cap people want power to commit scams, fill their coffers, indulge in illegal grabbing (of resources) and to give complete freedom to the mafia,” he added.
The other project he inaugurated is a Regional Medical Research Centre of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
The three big-ticket projects are worth over Rs 9,600 crore.
The newly built fertiliser plant will be operated by the Hindustan Urvarak Rasayan Limited (HURL).
The Gorakhpur AIIMS, built at a cost of Rs 1,011 crore, will benefit not only the people of eastern Uttar Pradesh but also a huge population of Bihar, Jharkhand and Nepal with its world-class health facilities, officials said.
