PM Modi cautioned people against what he calls 'revari culture' while addressing a gathering after inaugurating the Bundelkhand Expressway.
In Uttar Pradesh’s Jalaun for the inauguration of the Bundelkhand Expressway, Prime Minister Narendra Modi cautioned people against falling for the ‘revari culture’. ‘Revari’ refers to a popular sweet dish in parts of North India.
Referring to the practice of political parties to seek votes from people on the basis of promising freebies, PM Modi called it the ‘revari culture’. He added that falling for this type of voting culture could be "very dangerous" for the country’s development.
The PM was addressing a gathering after having inaugurated the Bundelkhand Expressway stretching 296 kilometers. He PM cautioned, especially the youth, against the "revari culture" while hitting out at earlier dispensations in the state for the lack of connectivity.
PM Modi said that a major transformation of the state with fast-improving connectivity was being brought about by the "double-engine" government. The term is used by the BJP to refer to the party being in power in the state as well as the centre.
"This expressway will not only give speed to the vehicles, but will also accelerate the industrial progress of the entire Bundelkhand," the PM said.
He further said the country was moving on a path of development which has two core aspects -- 'iraada aur maryada' – intent and honour.
The freshly inaugurated 296-km Bundelkhand Expressway passes through seven districts of Uttar Pradesh. It has been constructed at a cost of around Rs 14,850 crore. The construction took around 28 months to complete.
