He said, “I have visited Bastar more than all the previous Prime Ministers combined and I do that to oversee all the development that we have undertaken in the state”.
“Urban Maoists live in airconditioned rooms, travel in big cars and their children study abroad, but they ruin the lives of our poor Adivasi youth here using a remote control. Why is the Congress supporting them?” said PM @narendramodi at Jagdalpur. https://t.co/RNDZ6Dl2Ms
