Together we must overcome this thought, remove the Revdi culture from the politics of the country,” the prime minister said.

Prime Minister Modi added that BJP’s dual-powered governments in the States and Center are not resorting to ‘short cuts to distribute free revdi’ but are ‘working hard to improve the future of the state’ .

He further pointed out that “if two things – the law and order situation and connectivity needed to be fixed, I knew this would become a state that could fight against all odds. We improved both of them. The situation law and order improves, as does connectivity.”
