Commending the efforts of those involved in the de-addiction campaign spearheaded by Baba Jumdev Ji through the 'Paramatma Ek Sevak Mandal', PM Modi highlighted the significance of such initiatives in fostering societal well-being.

Addressing the enthusiastic crowd, PM Modi remarked, "Evening is setting in, but looking at your enthusiasm, it seems the day has just begun." Encouraging the audience to participate actively, he urged them to use their mobile phones to send blessings to the stage, symbolizing unity and collective support.

“Nowadays, these TV and media people are continuously showing surveys regarding the elections. Every survey indicates a clear victory for the NDA. These media people also spend a lot of money on these surveys. I want to share a formula today to save money. When criticism against Modi intensifies, then understand the trend, then it's the Modi government once again. When these people start insulting my late father or mother, understand the trend, then it's the Modi government once again. When questions arise about EVMs, understand the trend, then it's Modi government once again,” he added.

Reflecting on the upcoming elections, PM Modi emphasized the pivotal role of the electorate in shaping the future of the nation. He stated, "On April 19th, you are not just choosing a Member of Parliament. You are voting to strengthen the foundation of India for the next thousand years."

Asserting the importance of unity and solidarity, PM Modi condemned divisive politics propagated by certain factions. He urged the people of Maharashtra to vote for the country's unity and progress, cautioning against the divisive agenda of opportunistic alliances.

PM Modi said, “These INDI Alliance people are fully engaged in dividing the country's people. They know that if the people of the country unite, the politics of the INDI Alliance people will end. Therefore, I urge the people of Maharashtra, I urge the people of the country, vote for the country by uniting. If these INDI Alliance people become powerful, they will divide the country into pieces. Even today, they leave no stone unturned in pitting one community against another. Even today, they do not miss any opportunity to target Indian culture. Ramtek is that place where the feet of Bhagwan Ram himself have stepped.”

Highlighting the government's commitment to social justice and empowerment, PM Modi outlined various initiatives aimed at uplifting marginalized communities, including the SC-ST-OBC society. “Since independence, Congress has kept the SC-ST-OBC society behind in every way under a conspiracy. Congress ended Baba Saheb Ambedkar's politics. Congress kept Baba Saheb deprived of Bharat Ratna. When the BJP-supported government was formed at the Centre, Baba Saheb was awarded the Bharat Ratna. When the NDA government was formed in 2014, the son of a Dalit mother became the President of India. When the NDA government was formed again in 2019, the daughter of a tribal mother became the first citizen of the country, the President,” said the Prime Minister.

PM Modi underscored the government's efforts to ensure inclusive development and provide equal opportunities to all sections of society and said, “In the NDA government, we have appointed a record number of ministers from the OBC community. This NDA government is the one that gave constitutional status to the OBC Commission. This NDA government is the one that ensured reservation for OBCs in medical education. It was the NDA government that established a separate Ministry for Tribal Affairs. In the past 10 years, the budget for tribal welfare has been increased fivefold. It is due to the policies of the NDA government that the enrollment of SC/ST/OBC youth in schools and colleges has significantly increased.”

Addressing the audience, PM Modi reaffirmed his government's dedication to promoting the principles of 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas' and fostering an environment of inclusive growth. “Modi worked to provide facilities to the poor, to reduce their worries. Today, when Modi guarantees 100% beneficiaries, 100% benefits of schemes, this is true social justice. This is true secularism. Guaranteeing a home for the poor, guaranteeing free ration, free treatment, guaranteeing toilets, electricity-water-gas connections, these guarantees of Modi benefit the SC-ST-OBC families the most,” said PM Modi.

Touching upon critical policy decisions, PM Modi emphasized the significance of constitutional reforms, including the abrogation of Article 370 and the enactment of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), aimed at ensuring justice and equality for all citizens. “When Modi removed Article 370, the Congress president asked what benefit the country got from it? This is also evidence of Congress's anti-Dalit, tribal, and women policies, and vote bank politics. Removing Article 370 has given constitutional rights to all these sections in Jammu and Kashmir for the first time. Congress and the INDI Alliance are not liking this. Congress is also opposing the CAA, which provides citizenship because the biggest beneficiaries of this are the Dalits and Buddhists.”

In his address, PM Modi lauded the transformative development initiatives undertaken in Maharashtra, particularly in the Nagpur and Vidarbha regions. He highlighted the establishment of premier educational institutions, infrastructure projects, and economic initiatives aimed at bolstering regional growth and prosperity. “Such development can only be achieved by an honest, strong, and stable NDA government,” the Prime Minister stated.

Speaking ahead, PM Modi expressed his vision for the future, promising to accelerate the pace of development and usher in a new era of progress for Maharashtra and the nation as a whole.

During his concluding address, PM Modi urged the electorate to vote decisively in favor of the NDA candidates, reaffirming their commitment to good governance and inclusive development. He called upon every citizen to actively participate in the democratic process and uphold the values of unity, integrity, and progress.

PM Modi addresses public meetings in Shimla & Mandi, Himachal Pradesh

Weak Congress government used to plead around the world: PM Modi in Shimla, HP
Congress left the border areas of India to their fate: PM Modi in Shimla, HP
The Congress has not yet arrived in the 21st century: PM Modi in Mandi, HP
The entire Congress is vehemently anti-women: PM Modi in Mandi, HP

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed vibrant public meetings in Shimla and Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, invoking nostalgia and a forward-looking vision for Himachal Pradesh. The Prime Minister emphasized his longstanding connection with the state and its people, reiterating his commitment to their development and well-being.

“When the country didn't even know Modi, I was among you. Times have changed, but Modi has not changed. Modi's relationship with Himachal remains the same,” PM Modi remarked.

Highlighting his continuous engagement with the state, PM Modi sought the people’s blessings for a third term of the BJP government. “Today, I have come to seek your blessings for the BJP government for the third time. I need your blessings to make India strong, to make India Viksit, and for a developed Himachal. Five phases of elections have already taken place in the country. A BJP-NDA government is assured. Now, Himachal will score a hat-trick with a 4-0 victory. Vote for those who will form the government. What is the point of wasting your vote? So, say with me, ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar.”

Addressing the strategic importance of Himachal Pradesh, a state bordering the frontier, PM Modi underscored the necessity of a robust government. “Himachal Pradesh is a state bordering the frontier. The people of Himachal understand the importance of a strong government. Modi will risk his life for you but will not let any harm come to you. The weak Congress government used to plead around the world. Modi says, why should India go to the world? India will fight its battles on its own.”

The Prime Minister also highlighted the infrastructural developments under his administration, contrasting them with the previous Congress regimes. “This is the same Congress that left the border areas of India to their fate. Modi has given many times more money than Congress. Today, hundreds of kilometers of new roads have been built along the border. Today, the lives of soldiers and our people living near the border have become easier.”

PM Modi highlighted the successful implementation of the One Rank One Pension scheme, a long-standing demand of military personnel fulfilled under his leadership. “Congress made military families yearn for One Rank One Pension for four decades. Congress used to say they would bring OROP by showing just 500 crores. This was a huge insult to our army because it was impossible to implement OROP with just 500 crores. It is Modi who has implemented OROP. Modi has given about 1.25 lakh crore rupees to former soldiers through OROP. That's why people say, Modi delivers what he guarantees.”

PM Modi also spoke about sensitive issues, accusing Congress and the INDI alliance of undermining the reservation system and conspiring against the Ram Temple. “I have come today to warn the people of Himachal about another conspiracy by Congress and the INDI alliance. These people want to completely abolish the reservation for SC-ST-OBC and give it to Muslims. Congress is also opposing the Ram temple. You people of Himachal tell me, did you feel good visiting Ram Lalla? But Congress cannot tolerate the Ram temple. Congress is conspiring to lock the Ram temple. Will you allow the Ram temple to be locked?”

Reaffirming his government's commitment to development, PM Modi listed the various initiatives taken for Himachal Pradesh, including the establishment of prestigious educational institutions and infrastructural projects. “No one thought that institutions like IIIT, IIM, and AIIMS could exist in Himachal. But with Modi, it is possible. Himachal has received a bulk drugs park and a medical device park. Himachal is among the first states in the country where the Vande Bharat train started.”

“Modi has guaranteed to make 3 crore sisters associated with self-help groups ‘Lakhpati Didis.’ Modi has also brought a big scheme to make your electricity bill zero. With the ‘PM Suryaghar Muft Bijli Yojana’ your bill will be zero, and you will also earn thousands of rupees. Just as Modi has fulfilled previous guarantees, Modi will fulfill these guarantees as well,” he added.

Addressing his second public meeting in Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, PM Modi spoke about the aspirations of the youth and the importance of women's empowerment. He stressed the need for inclusive development and equal opportunities for all citizens.

PM Modi denounced the Congress party's regressive policies and divisive politics, calling for support to build a prosperous and united India. He said, “The Congress has not yet arrived in the 21st century. While people progress, Congress moves in the opposite direction. It's heading back to the 20th century. The Congress royal family is staunchly against daughters. The entire Congress is vehemently anti-women. But for my family in Himachal, listen to me carefully, and educate your daughters well. The assurance of providing them with an open and safe environment and offering them new heights is from Modi.”

“I have opened the doors of military schools and defense academies for daughters. The doors that were once closed for daughters in the army have also been opened. The number of women in central forces has more than doubled in ten years. Whether fighter pilots or passenger aircraft pilots, the coming five years are going to be a soaring flight for daughters. This is Modi's Guarantee,” he added.

Speaking about Congress’ misrule in the state and how his government took initiatives to preserve the state’s heritage, PM Modi said, “Modi government has vigorously promoted this heritage. Himachal's, the country's pride and prosperity, require your every vote. Congress is leading Himachal to ruin. So, it is necessary to stop it. I need your support to remove Himachal from the clutches of Congress.”

While concluding his address, PM Modi called upon the people of Himachal Pradesh to reject the Congress party's outdated ideology and support the BJP in the upcoming elections. He urged voters to elect BJP candidates to ensure continued progress and development in the region.
