Addressing a massive rally at Mau on February 27, Prime Minister Narendra Modi recalled the famous 1962 speech by the late Congress leader Vishwanath Singh Gahmari that made every member of the parliament cry.

“On June 11, 1962, Gahmari told the Parliament that people in eastern Uttar Pradesh are so poor that they feed on grains that they retrieve from cow dung,” Modi told a sea of supporters from the impoverished region.

Gahmari’s speech had moved the entire parliament to tears. It made then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru so emotional that he immediately formed the Patel committee headed by H.M. Patel to find out a solution to Purvanchal’s poverty.

Modi said that the Patel Committee had submitted its report while Nehru was alive.



“For 50 years they (the Congress) did nothing. They ignored the file and the region,” Modi said.

Modi said that his government dug up that report and studied it to ensure that the development of this region is carried out.

The PM reminded the people that his government approved a railway project in 2016 which will connect Mau to Tarighat across the Ganga river.
