"Congress and NCP have ruled Maharashtra for 15 years. Whenever something went wrong, they only changed their chief minister. But did it do any good to you? Have you benefited from them? They share the same gotra (origin), ideology, actions and motives," Modi told a poll rally at Loha in Nanded district.

"They (Congress and NCP) are corrupt people. This 'jugalbandi' of corruption by both the parties has to be wiped out from Maharashtra, only then the state can progress," he added.

He said people can demand an account of the work done by a government only when a single party wins elections with a clear majority.

"If you want the right to catch the government by its ear (sic) and demand an account of its work, give us (BJP) complete majority.

"People can only benefit if the next government is formed with (clear) majority. You can demand an account of the work done by the party after five years, which is not possible with a coalition government," he said.

Modi promised that if BJP comes to power in Maharashtra, the state and the Centre would work in tandem.

Expressing confidence that BJP would be voted to power in the Maharashtra, Modi said, "During the Lok Sabha elections, political pundits used to say no one knows Modi outside Gujarat. But we (NDA) hit three centuries (300-plus seats) in our first match. This time, too, the political pundits don't know the direction of the wind."
