Dear Friends,

Yesterday I had written in my blog about the new ‘Talibans of untouchability.’ I firmly believe that in society, there should be no place for untouchability.

From what I wrote in my blog it can be seen that I had not referred to any party or individual. Yet parties like the Congress have taken it personally and felt offended. Why has the Congress reacted in such a way as it did!!! People have to understand the reasons behind it.

I would not like to waste my time in reacting to the friends of Congress who have angrily reacted yesterday.

The Congress has asked Shri Amitabh Bachchanji whether he opposes Gujarat riots or not?

Friends, Modi himself has opposed the riots and still does. Every citizen must oppose riots.

Whether it is 1984 Delhi riots, 1992 Mumbai riots, 1985 Gujarat riots or atrocities committed in Kashmir or Godhra-related riots. There cannot be different standards to judge riots.

Friends, after the Gujarat 2002 riots I had made a statement in Vidhan Sabha in March 2002 and I wish to quote one para as sufficient evidence for those who are spreading lies day and night: “Are we not supposed to soul-search ourselves? Whether it is Godhra incident or post-Godhra it does not enhance the prestige of any decent society. These riots are a stigma on humanity and do not help anyone to hold his head high. Then why is there a difference of opinion?”

My 2002 March statement in Gujarat Assembly is enough for the world community to understand the truth.

Friends,

The condemnable incident had occurred on 27 February 2002 at Godhra and in the afternoon of 28 February 2002 I had appealed publicly through Doordarshan to maintain peace. This appeal in Gujarati is now available through a video and I am placing it before you

(My appeal in Doordarshan and Akashvani was being broadcast for days together.)

Read this appeal in word to word transcript at:

Since then my painful appeal has not been heard by those who are bent upon defaming Gujarat nor do I foresee that it will be heard by them now.

Friends,

Any unsubstantiated criticism of the land of Gandhi, Sardar can never be tolerated. Gujarat will give a befitting reply again, and again and again come what may.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a massive Vikas Parv Rally in Davangere, Karnataka to mark two years of the NDA Government in office. Beginning his address, Shri Narendra Modi thanked people of Karnataka for having turned out in large numbers to attend the rally. The Prime Minister highlighted several initiatives of the NDA Government in the last two years that were transforming the lives of people across India.

PM Narendra Modi said that the NDA Government was working tirelessly for the welfare of people across the country and India was now moving rapidly on the path of progress. “Our strength has been devoted for the welfare of the people”, he added further.

Taking a dig at the previous govt he said it is better for me to do small tasks as the big tasks of the previous govt resulted in big scams. Talking about an honest and transparent government PM Modi said, “We will never let the nation go in the wrong direction.”

The Prime Minister elaborated about Government’s initiatives towards welfare of the agriculture sector and the farmer community. He spoke at length about several schemes like Krishi Sinchai Yojana, Soil Health Cards, e-NAM and e-mandis that were benefiting the farmers in a big way. PM Modi also talked about steps the Government was undertaking for welfare of sugarcane farmers across the country.

Speaking about the Government’s ambitious Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, PM Modi credited the citizens for success of the initiative and said that people from all walks of life not only were appreciating but also contributing to the campaign.

He also cited about the ‘Give It Up’ campaign that turned out to be a mass movement as over a crore people gave up their LPG subsidies voluntarily. Adding further, the PM spoke about Ujjwala Yojana that aimed to make rural India smoke-free by providing gas connections to five crore to below poverty line households free of cost in next three years.

Prime Minister Modi also cited that India was a youthful nation and Government was undertaking efforts to direct the youthful workforce for development of India. He highlighted how initiatives like Skill India were helping India’s youth focus on their skills. The PM also mentioned about the recent decision of elimination of interviews for class 3 and 4 government jobs.

Several BJP leaders were present at the event.
