Stating that the BJP’s guiding principle was that of Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya’s Antyodaya, he urged the members to further the reach of the party’s initiatives among the weaker sections. Remembering Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar, Shri Modi remarked that welfare of each and every community was the BJP’s commitment.

Highlighting several initiatives being undertaken by the BJP-led NDA Government at Centre, Shri Modi said that in 2015 the Government strengthened the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and increased the offences listed in the Act from 22 to 47 to empower the weaker sections. He said that Stand up and Mudra Yojanas were helping to make SC/ST, OBC and women financially empowered.

Attacking the Congress for not letting the OBC Commission a Constitutional Status in Parliament, he said that they were only involved in vote-bank politics and never cared about empowering the weaker sections.

Shri Modi also spoke about how India was rapidly growing. He mentioned that under the NDA Government, India was the second largest steel manufacturer in the world, second largest mobile phone manufacturer and fourth largest automobile manufacturer. He also noted several initiatives being undertaken by the Centre like Smart Cities, Amrut and connecting the waterways.
