Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Jind, Oct 11: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday expressed concern over the skewed sex ratio in Haryana, and stressed on the need to ensure safety of women.

Commenting on skewed sex ratio of Haryana, Prime Minister said: “In Haryana for every thousand males born there are only 875 girl child births. This is not god given, this is happening because we are committing a crime of killing the girl child before its birth.”

“No party in the history of Haryana’s politics has given more tickets to women than what BJP has done this time,” he said while reaching out to the feminine gender here at poll rally.

The Prime Minister said that development is the solution to all problems and urged the people of Haryana to vote for BJP for the state’s development.

Underlining the need for the development of villages, Modi said: “We have launched a campaign called ‘Make in India’. Under this, we have asked the companies around the world to invest in India, build factories here and employ the youth.”

The election for 90-member Haryana Assembly is scheduled to take place on October 15 while the counting of votes will be held on October 19.

Political parties resort to advertisements to woo voters

The campaign by various political parties eyeing their share in the Haryana Assembly elections has gained momentum, with each of them resorting to advertisements to woo voters and fire salvos at each other.

Besides Congress, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), other players in the contest include former MP Kuldeep Bishnoi led Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) and former Union Minister Venod Sharma led Jan Chetna Party (JCP).

The three main contenders are using strong advertisement campaigns especially using regional TV channels and FM radio.

Former Chief Minister Om Parkash Chautala led INLD, which is eyeing a comeback after a decade in the state, released a music video featuring Honey Singh, to attract young voters in the state.

INLD has been targeting Congress over alleged Change of Land Use (CLU) scams, unemployment, corruption, law and order situation in the state and even hit out at Congress government’s “Haryana No 1” slogan.

Advertisements issued by state unit of Congress highlight the development work undertaken by their government during the last ten years with its slogan ‘Sach Ko Jaano Sach Ko Pehchaano, Congress Sarkar Teesri Baar’.

In its spoofs, Congress can be seen taking a dig at the Central government over price rise, hitting out at the “hollow promises” of “Ache Din” made before Lok Sabha polls.

BJP, which is contesting on all 90 assembly seats on its own for the first time, launched an aggressive campaign projecting itself as the only viable alternative to both the ruling Congress and INLD.
