PM Modi redefines SCAM

PM Modi redefines SCAM

"Out fight is against SCAM - Samajwadi, Congress, Akhilesh and Mayawati".

Targeting the formations that are contesting the BJP for power in Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the word "scam" was an acronym for Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh and Mayawati, and that if the state was to progress, they had to go. "Furthermore, we will also do everything that I needed to ensure safety of women and generate more employment opportunities for youth in the state", PM Modi added. The rally was held at the Shatabdi Nagar Ground in Meerut which is opposite to the RSS institute of Madhav Kunj.

Only about Rs 2,800 crore of the Rs 7,000 crore the Centre had sent to UP for healthcare development in 2015-16 was spent and not even Rs 40 crore of the Rs 950 crore sent for "Swachh" campaign was used, the PM claimed.

Addressing a Parivartan Rally here, Modi said he had tried to do whatever he could for the development of Uttar Pradesh but still a lot remained to be done. "But now they two have embraced each other!" "We made them (enemies) account for everything", the PM said. "First war of independence began here in Meerut in 1857, which was a fight against British".

Snap has officially filed for an IPO
But Snap is better known than the e-commerce company, drawing comparisons instead to the IPOs of Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR). The company is said to be valued at $20 billion to $25 billion, and is looking to raise $ 3 billion in the offering.

Reacting to the "SCAM" remark made by Prime MInister Narendra Modi against opposition parties, Congress leader Tom Vadakkan said such comment does not suit the PM.

Earlier in the day, PM Modi addressed a poll rally in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut district and hit out SP, Congress and BSP. Explaining how the SP government had been an obstacle to development of the state, Modi said, " If we have a state government that creates obstacles, then the development work will get stalled in Lucknow.

Political experts say the party's performance in the polls is very important, especially in Uttar Pradesh, which has the largest number of assembly and parliamentary seats of any state in the country, and the results will be a harbinger of 2019. Votes will be counted on March 11.
