Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam ensures the rights of my sisters, guarantees the fulfillment of their dreams, pays homage to the strength of women in our nation: PM Modi

Addressing the Nari Shakti Vandan Abhinandan Karyakram in Ahmedabad, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed the passage of the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam, seeking to reserve 33% of seats in Lok Sabha and state Assemblies for women. Speaking to the women in the event, PM Modi said, “Your brother has done one more thing in Delhi to increase the trust with which you had sent me to Delhi. Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam, i.e. guarantee of increasing representation of women from Assembly to Lok Sabha.”

 

He said, “Today, I can confidently state that the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam is a precious gift to my sisters nationwide. This Adhiniyam ensures the rights of my sisters, guarantees the fulfillment of their dreams, pays homage to the strength of women in our nation, and serves as a pledge for a prosperous India.”


Discussing the successful initiatives aimed at women's empowerment, PM Modi remarked, "In Gujarat, we implemented numerous effective campaigns targeting women's empowerment across three crucial levels: the family, society, and the state. Accordingly, we devised a series of plans to enhance the quality of life for every woman within the family."


He further added, "To promote social equality and education, we launched initiatives like Kanya Kelavani. At the state level, we ensured their active participation in politics and administration. Many of you are familiar with the 50 percent reservation for women in local bodies in Gujarat. I initiated the Samras Panchayat experiment to amplify women's representation at all levels."


"For the four key positions in local bodies — Mayor, Deputy Mayor, Standing Committee Chairman, and Party Leader — we mandated that at least one be reserved for women. Additionally, we introduced a similar reservation for a representative from the Dalit or tribal community within the party. Today, these experiences of Gujarat have a big role in the major decisions being taken related to women in every field of the country, from home to Parliament,” he said.


Prime Minister Modi emphasized, "In order to empower the tribal women of Gujarat, we elevated their role within forest management boards, resulting in the active participation of thousands of women in forest development efforts. To address self-employment challenges faced by women, we established the Women Economic Development Corporation in Gujarat. Furthermore, we initiated Mission Mangalam, dedicated to enhancing the economic empowerment of women."


Talking about the award winning ‘Pani Samitis’, PM Modi asserted, “We first started women's participation in ‘Pani Samitis’ and women's leadership from Gujarat itself. This system of Gujarat's ‘Pani Samiti’ also received an international award. I remember that Gujarat was appreciated for this initiative not only at the national level but also at the international level. Gujarat also received two major international awards from the United Nations and the Commonwealth Association.”


Highlighting the efforts made for the advancement of women, Prime Minister Modi reiterated, "In the past 9 years, we've dedicated ourselves to enhancing the overall quality of life for women in our nation, spanning from their early years to old age. Our country grappled with numerous social issues, from female foeticide to female illiteracy. That's why we initiated the 'Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao' campaign. Today, we can proudly declare that the gender ratio in our country has significantly improved."


“Today, be it the country's industry or playground, daughters are reaching new heights everywhere and elevating the country's reputation. Just yesterday our women cricket team hoisted the flag of India by winning the gold medal in the Asian Games,” he said.

 

Addressing to the large number of women present at the event, PM Modi criticized the opposition, stated, "Your growing influence has led to the passage of the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam in Parliament with an unprecedented number of votes. Even those who had postponed it for decades had to support it, out of fear of you. You must have observed how these individuals were hedging their statements and making numerous excuses."


“Soon, with the power of this law, the daughters of the country will reach the Assembly and Parliament in large numbers and will become the voice of the country,” the Prime Minister concluded.

PM Modi delivers a stirring address to an enthusiastic crowd at a public meeting in Aligarh, UP
April 22, 2024
Today, under Yogi ji's governance, peace reigns, and our sisters and daughters walk freely, without fear: PM Modi
Parties like Congress-SP always practised appeasement politics: PM Modi taking a jibe at the Opposition
BJP has pledged in its Sankalp Patra to establish special storage clusters for farmers: PM Modi at Aligarh rally
You hold the key to a better future and a Viksit Bharat: PM Modi at a public meeting in Aligarh

At the Aligarh event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was greeted with love and admiration from all corners of Uttar Pradesh. He shared his transparent vision of a Viksit Uttar Pradesh and a Viksit Bharat with the crowd, reaffirming his commitment to serving every citizen of the country.

Initiating his spirited speech, the PM remarked, “When I first came to Aligarh, I asked you to lock away the factories of nepotism, corruption, and appeasement. You locked them so tight that even the two Shehzaades can't find the key. Today, I'm back to urge the people of Aligarh and Hathras. You hold the key to a better future and a Viksit Bharat. It's time to rid our country of poverty, corruption, and dynastic politics.”

Painting a vivid contrast, PM Modi highlighted the stark difference: "Once, bombs and shells rattled our borders daily, but now, all is calm. Terrorist attacks and serial blasts were routine, but not anymore. Under Article 370, separatists thrived in Jammu and Kashmir, but now they're silenced. Curfews were a daily ordeal in Aligarh, but not anymore. Under the SP government, riots, murders, and gang wars plagued us. Today, under Yogi ji's governance, peace reigns, and our sisters and daughters walk freely, without fear."

“Parties like Congress-SP always practised appeasement politics and never did anything for the political-social-economic upliftment of Muslims,” the PM added.

PM Modi enlightened the audience about several developmental initiatives aimed at uplifting various sections of society, PM Modi reflected that he had requested the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia to increase the Haj quota. “Today, not only has India's Haj quota increased but visa rules have also been made easier. The government has also allowed women to go for Haj without Mehram,” the PM mentioned.

Taking a firm stand against the opposition and their selfish motives, PM Modi emphasized, “The INDI Alliance members are hopeless, unwilling to look towards the future. They question why I speak of a developed India or making us the third-largest economic power. All they care about is their family and power greed.”

“Today, I must warn the people of Aligarh and the nation about the dangerous intentions of the Congress and INDI Alliance. The Congress and its allies have set their sights on your hard-earned money and property. The Congress leader has openly declared that if they come to power, they will investigate everyone's earnings and property, even down to how much gold women possess, how many FDs employees have, and how much land farmers own. They plan to confiscate property and money as they see fit, based on a survey they conduct. This is akin to communist ideology, which has ruined many countries. Now, they want to implement this policy in India. They want to seize your hard-earned money and property. These family-oriented politicians have amassed vast fortunes by looting the people. They have never shared their wealth with the poor. Now, they have their eyes on the wealth of the people,” the PM exposed the harsh realities of the opposition.

Training his guns further at Congress, PM Modi asserted, “The Congress considers it its birthright to plunder the wealth of the people, loot the nation's assets. The Congress, which engaged in corruption in every defence purchase, could never have built a defence corridor here. But now, our Uttar Pradesh is now becoming a major hub of self-reliant India, a self-reliant army. Just a few days ago, we exported the first batch of BrahMos missiles to the Philippines. In the coming days, these lethal BrahMos missiles will also be manufactured in Uttar Pradesh.”

Stressing how the BJP is strengthening the power of every industry in the region, PM Modi remarked, “BJP is supporting the One District One Product initiative to boost your work. Whether it's the locks of Aligarh, the asafoetida of Hathras, metal industries, garment industries, or gulal industries, the BJP government is dedicated to bolstering every sector.”

PM Modi also spoke about several development schemes that empower both agriculture and farmers here, stating, “BJP has also pledged in its Sankalp Patra to establish special storage clusters for potato, tomato, and onion farmers, which will greatly benefit the farmers of Aligarh and Hathras.”

In his concluding remarks, PM Modi exhorted the people of Aligarh and Hathras, “Now, to build a developed India, we need a strong government in India. For this, you need to vote for the BJP, vote for the NDA. I have one more request for you. Go door-to-door, tell them that Modi ji has said, ‘First vote, and then refreshment’.
