Campaigning for Maharashtra and Haryana elections is in full swing. Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an election rally in Haryana’s Ballabhgarh on Monday.
PM Modi said that Haryana has always been a home to him. “Haryana has taught me a lot and so whenever I come here, I feel that I have come to my house,” PM Modi said.
Referring to abrogation of Article 370, PM Modi gave the credit for this to the people of India and said, “It is not because of Modi, but due to the people of India that this is happening. You clicked the Kamal button and gave me the power to take these decisions for you.”
