Adding, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son and state chief minister Akhilesh were out to destroy Uttar Pradesh, he urged the people to send as many BJP candidates to the Lok Sabha as they can.
"Delhi mein baithi hai maa-bete ki sarkaar aur rajya mein baap-bete ki sarkar, aur dono hi kar rahe hain satyanaash" Modi told the public in Hardoi.
He also rued the growing lawlessness in Uttar Pradesh and said it is a sad thing that people in the state have more arms than the police.
