“Third Front will make India third grade and we need to reject them forever. Those talking about the Third Front in Delhi should come here and see which way the wind is blowing,” the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said at a mammoth rally at the Brigade Parade grounds here.
The Gujarat chief minister said the absence of the Third Front was the “most important” reason why the western part of India has seen development.
“In the western side, none of the Third Front parties have ruled. No associate of the Third Front has ever been able to step into that region. It is different here in the eastern states and result is lack of development,” he said.
“Those who are pushing the country to the third grade in the name of the Third Front are ruling in the eastern region, and therefore there is lack of development.”
Modi assured the people that his party will work towards the progress of the country’s eastern region.
“Development in the eastern part of India cannot be slow. It must match the development in the other parts of the nation,” he said.
Meanwhile, 14 non-Congress and non-BJP parties met in Delhi to give formal shape to a “third force” and formulate a common policy against the Congress and BJP.
