Hailing the wisdom of general public in India, Modi said despite garnering so much negative publicity during the election process, people have shown the ability to differentiate between the right and the wrong.
Modi also added that though everyone has their likes and dislikes, voters love their county and always vote for its future and for the future of the youths.
“...and we should all contribute to make the fortune of this country,” he said.
Modi has been the focal point of bulk of media coverage throughout the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. Political leaders from rival parties have not hesitated to use vile terms for the saffron party’s prime ministerial candidate.
Modi also urged the voters in Varanasi, from where he is locked in a three-cornered battle with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal and Congress candidate Ajay Rai, to reflect the spirit of unity and harmony through their precious votes.
Calling upon 'Maa Ganga" in his video message, Modi batted for keeping the rich tradition of the holy city alive.
"I appeal to people to cast their votes in the last phase of polls with the same zeal and enthusiasm they have shown so far. My brothers and sisters in Kashi, the honour of Kashi is in peace, harmony and unity,” he said.
“This is what we call Ganga-Jamuna Tehjeeb. It should also be reflected in polling. We are all one. We should love each other and take everybody along,” he added.
Hailing the "vibrancy" of Indian democracy, the Gujarat Chief Minister said the western world should analyse the success of Indian democracy.
"The western world should also analyse Indian democracy, as to what is the reason why crores of people in this blistering heat are participating with such an enthusiasm in this elections," he said.
Modi said the heavy deployment of security forces in large number will be a good sign for ensuring healthy, clean and peaceful elections in the last phase.
However, he felt that the issues in the states, which witnessed assembly elections simultaneously, remained confined to their borders.
