Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Friday accused the Congress of backing urban Maoists who he

said have ruined the lives of poor Adivasi youth.

Addressing his first election rally for the Assembly

polls scheduled later this, Modi also said he will not rest

till he fulfils late Atal Bihari Vajpayee's dreams for a

prosperous Chhattisgarh.

Modi said the Congress-led government did not do

enough to develop the Naxal-infested Bastar region citing the

Maoist menace.

"The urban Maoists who live in air conditioned homes

in the cities, look clean and whose children study abroad,

remote control the adivasi children in the Naxal dominated

areas," Modi said.

"I want to ask the Congress why it supports the urban

Maoists when the government takes action against them and come

to Bastar and speak against Naxalism," he said.

Describing Naxals as "monsters with evil mindset", the

Prime Minister said earlier governments did not do enough for

development of Bastar region.

"Will you forgive such people? These people will not

win Chhattisgarh. I appeal to you to ensure that BJP wins all

seats in the Bastar region. If anyone else wins, it will be a

blot on Bastar's dreams," he added.
