These elections are about the people of the country choosing ‘India First’ over ‘Dynasty First’ and ‘Development’ over ‘Dynasty’: PM Modi
Be it implementing ‘One Nation, One Tax’ or ‘One Nation, One Card’ we have greatly enhanced uniformity in governance: PM Modi
Thanks to the arrogance of the Congress party, the victims of the gruesome 1984 anti-Sikh riots are still awaiting justice: PM Modi

Addressing the fourth large rally for the day in Chandigarh, PM Modi said, “These elections are about the people of the country electing a strong government by choosing ‘India First’ over ‘Dynasty First’ and ‘Development’ over ‘Dynasty’ as it takes giant leaps into the 21st century.”

PM Modi described the rapid strides taken by the nation during the last five years owing to the clean, efficient and strong policies of the BJP-led NDA government and said, “Be it implementing ‘One Nation, One Tax’ or ‘One Nation, One Card’ we have greatly enhanced uniformity in governance which have been further complemented by the major push for digitisation under this government. As a result, India today has a very strong digital payments system as well as the JAM trinity through which we have rooted out ghost beneficiaries of government schemes. Milestones like these happen when a government makes ‘people’ its priority rather than ‘power’ and when it is committed to ensuring equal opportunities for all Indians.”

 

Lashing out at the Congress party for its role in inciting the anti-Sikh riots in 1984, PM Modi said, “Thanks to the arrogance of the Congress party, the victims of the gruesome 1984 anti-Sikh riots are still awaiting justice as many of the perpetrators have not been punished for their crimes. The Congress party even went further and rewarded those accused in these riots with ministerial posts and their recent statement trying to justify their historical wrongs has yet again revealed that the true face of the Congress party is anti-Sikh. It is because of their arrogance and such statements that the people no longer associate themselves with the divisive politics of the Congress.”

PM Narendra Modi condoled demise of Shri Arun Jaitley. The PM spoke to his wife, Smt. Sangeetha and son, Rohan and expressed his condolences.

The Prime Minister said that Arun Jaitley Ji was a political giant, towering intellectual and legal luminary. "He was an articulate leader who made a lasting contribution to India. His passing away is very saddening", the PM adeed.

The PM further said, "Full of life, blessed with wit, a great sense of humour and charisma, Arun Jaitley Ji was admired by people across all sections of society. He was multi-faceted, having impeccable knowledge about India’s Constitution, history, public policy, governance and administration."

Remembering Shri Jaitley, PM Modi said that during his long political career, Arun Jaitley Ji held multiple ministerial responsibilities, which enabled him to contribute towards India’s economic growth, strengthening our defence capabilities, creating people friendly laws and enhancing trade with other nations.

He said that BJP and Arun Jaitley Ji had an unbreakable bond. "As a fiery student leader, he was at forefront of protecting our democracy during the Emergency. He became a much liked face of our Party, who could articulate the Party programmes and ideology to a wide spectrum of society", the PM said.

PM Modi added that with the demise of Arun Jaitley Ji, he had lost a valued friend, whom he had the honour of knowing for decades. "His insight on issues and nuanced understanding of matters had very few parallels. He lived well, leaving us all with innumerable happy memories. We will miss him", said PM Modi.
