Emphasising on the difference between himself and the Congress leader, who he has often referred to as ‘naamdar’ (dynast), Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he was one of the common man of the nation and was not born with a golden spoon.
“We are not seeking votes for our grandsons or granddaughters but for your welfare and to help fulfil your dreams,” the prime minister said at a rally in Rajasthan ahead of elections in the state on December 7.
The “kamdar” is in a fight against the “naamdar” in Rajasthan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday, making a clear distinction between the one who works relentlessly and the dynast in a jibe against Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

Calling out the Congress, he said those whose four generations have had no connect with the public cannot understand the pain of the common people. “Our only mantra is ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’, inspired by social reformers Jyotiba Phule and B R Ambedkar,” the prime minister further said.
Talking about the severe issue of water supply on the desert state, Prime Minister asked people to elect the Vasundhara Raje government for another term in the state. The Raje government has provided irrigation facilities in 1.5 lakh hectare area, he told the gathering.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also said that the BJP-led NDA government’s performance on development was better compared to 50 years of the Congress rule at the Centre. He said work on three super expressways with an expenditure of Rs 70,000 crore was underway, which would take the state to a new height of development.
