The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi addressed the Tiranga Rally in Surat via video conferencing. He began his address by wishing everyone a very Happy Amrit Mahotsav and recalled that in a few days’ time, India is completing 75 years of its independence. The Prime Minister said that all of us are preparing for this historic Independence Day as the Tricolour is hoisted in every corner of India.

The Prime Minister remarked that every corner of Gujarat is full of enthusiasm, and Surat has only added to its glory. He said, “The attention of the whole country is on Surat today. In a way, a mini India is being seen in the Tiranga Yatra of Surat. People from all sections of society are involved in this together.” The Prime Minister further added that Surat has shown the real uniting power of the Tricolour. The Prime Minister further added that even though Surat has made a mark on the world because of its business and its industries, today the Tiranga Yatra will be the centre of attention for the entire world.

While addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister acknowledged the people of Surat who brought alive the spirit of our freedom struggle in the Tiranga Yatra. He said, “There is a clothing seller, shopkeeper, somebody is a craftsman of looms, someone is a sewing and embroidery artisan, another one in transportation, they are all connected.” He appreciated the efforts of the entire textile industry of Surat who turned this into a grand event. The Prime Minister congratulated everyone for this Jan Bhagidari (public participation) in the Tricolor campaign, especially Mr. Sanwar Prasad Budhia, and the volunteers associated with 'Saket - Service is the goal' group who started this initiative. The Prime Minister further thanked Member of Parliament Shri C R Patil ji who empowered this initiative.

The Prime Minister said, “Our national flag itself has been a symbol of the country's textile industry, the country's khadi and our self-reliance.” He said that Surat has always prepared the basis for a self-reliant India in this field. The Prime Minister further added that Gujarat led the freedom struggle in the form of Bapu and gave heroes like Iron Man Sardar Patel who laid the foundation of Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat after independence. The message emanating from the Bardoli movement and the Dandi Yatra united the entire country.

The Prime Minister remarked that the Tricolour of India does not contain only three colours in itself, but is a reflection of the pride of our past, our commitment to the present and our dreams of the future. The Prime Minister mentioned that our Tricolour is a symbol of India's unity, India's integrity and India's diversity. Our fighters saw the future of the country in the Tricolour, saw the dreams of the country, and never let it bow down by any means. The Prime Minister remarked that after 75 years of independence when we are beginning the journey of a new India, the Tricolour is once again representing the unity and consciousness of India.

The Prime Minister expressed happiness that the Tiranga Yatras being held across the country are a reflection of the power and devotion of the Har Ghar Tiranga Abhiyan. The Prime Minister said, “From August 13 to 15, the Tricolour will be hoisted in every house of India. People from every section of the society, every caste and creed are spontaneously joining with only one identity. This is the identity of the conscientious citizen of India.”

The Prime Minister emphasised that this is the identity of the child of Mother India. The Prime Minister expressed immense satisfaction after men and women, youths, elders, everybody is playing their role in supporting the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign. The Prime Minister also expressed happiness that many poor people, weavers and handloom workers are also getting additional income due to the Har Ghar Tricolor campaign.

Barmer's bustling welcome for PM Modi as he addresses an election rally in Rajasthan
April 12, 2024
Rajasthan represents valour & courage, along with a resolve to enable a 'Viksit Bharat
The land of Rajasthan that has sacrificed so much for India has been deprived of water by the Congress party for decades
Congress's mindset is against the rural development of border villages; hence, all the border areas were deprived of development under Congress's rule
The BJP's commitment is to empower the Janjatiya community in Rajasthan, including the Meghwal, Langha and Manganiar communities
The Congress party, which denied Babasaheb Ambedkar the Bharat Ratna and imposed the National Emergency, should be the last to comment on India's Constitution
The Congress made a blunder by suggesting India give up its nuclear arsenal despite the threat from its two neighbors

Ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, PM Modi was accorded a bustling welcome by Barmer as he addressed an election rally in Rajasthan. He said, "Rajasthan represents valour and courage along with a resolve to enable a 'Viksit Bharat.'" He added that looking at the popular support, the people are determined for '4 June 400 Paar, Fir ek Baar Modi Sarkar.'

Speaking on the Congress Party's six-decade-long rule, PM Modi said, "The Congress has ruled for more than six decades but has not been able to resolve even a single issue comprehensively." He said, "The land of Rajasthan that has sacrificed so much for India has been deprived of water by the Congress party for decades." He added that our government prioritized drinking water for all through the 'Jal Jeevan Mission'.

Addressing Congress's narrow mindset on the rural development of India's border villages, PM Modi said, "Congress' mindset is against the rural development of border villages, and hence, all the border areas were deprived of their development under Congress rule." He added that our priority has been the development of border villages and enabling the last-mile saturation of development benefits to all.

Elaborating on tribal welfare, PM Modi said, "On one hand, the Congress ignored the Janjatiya community, and on the other hand, our government is devoted to their holistic empowerment." He added that initiatives like Eklavya Residential Schools and Mission to eliminate Sickle Cell Anemia have pioneered tribal development in Rajasthan. He said it was the BJP government's prerogative to ensure that India has a President from the Tribal community. He said, "The BJP's commitment is to empower the Janjatiya community in Rajasthan, including the Meghwal, Langha and Manganiar communities, among several others. He added that PM Vishwakarma Yojana and PM KISAN Yojana have been implemented to improve people's lives.

Highlighting the plight of the SC-ST-OBC under Congress regimes, PM Modi said, "Congress has discriminated with SC-ST-OBC for over 6 decades." He added that the Congress spreads rumours about India's vibrant constitutionalism. He said, "The Congress party that denied Babasaheb Ambedkar the Bharat Ratna and imposed the National Emergency, stifling the freedoms of Indian citizens should be the last one to speak on India's Constitution." He added that the Congress manifesto reeks of the ideals of the Muslim league. He remarked, "It is the same Congress that committed a blunder stating that India should give up its nuclear arsenal, despite knowing the nuclear threat posed by India's two neighbours." He said that the I.N.D.I alliance only aims to weaken India's territorial integrity and security.

Regarding the abrogation of Article 370, PM Modi said that the I.N.D.I alliance questions about the relationship Rajasthan has with Kashmir. Kashmir is an integral part of India, and every Rajasthani is proud. He remarked, "The same question about Rajasthan's relationship with Kashmir must be posed to 'Bhikharam Moond' & 'Babosa Ramdev Ji'. By questioning like this, the Congress Party only aims to divide India. He said, "Opposing the Pran-Pratishtha of Shri Ram and the CAA showcases Congress' tendency always to disrespect India's vibrant culture."

In conclusion, PM Modi said that Congress doesn't deserve a single vote for the sins they committed. He thanked the people of Barmer for coming out in support of BJP in such large numbers. He requested them to vote for the BJP to ensure the continuous development of India in envisioning a 'Viksit Bharat.'
