CM addresses Vivekananda Yuva Parishad at Surat

CM announces laying stone for Rs.963 crore development works in Surat

Next five years will be the golden period for the state as we are resolute to build a divine and glorious Gujarat during it: Narendra Modi

Addressing the large number of youths present at the Vivekananda Yuva Parishad in Surat the chief minister Narendra Modi expressed resolve to empower the youths of Gujarat on the path shown by Swami Vivekananda. “Today when the entire country is immersed into disappointment, Gujarat with its youth power will be a ray of hope”, he said.

Chief Minister said the people gave him opportunity to serve the State for longest time and during next five years from January 2013 he desires to create a divine and glorious Gujarat.

As a part of Swami Vivekananda’s 150th birth anniversary celebration the state’s Youth Services and Cultural Activities department has organized a series of seven Vivekananda Yuva Parishad. The sixth parishad was organized today at Surat’s indoor stadium.

On the occasion, the chief minister announced laying foundation stone for the development works worth Rs.963 crore for Surat city. Chief Minister also distributed sports kits to the Vivekananda Yuva Kendras.

Speaking about Swami Vivekananda’s life the chief minister said, “swamiji predicted that he would leave his mortal body at the age of 40. His prediction came true. In 1897 Swamiji asked people to forget all of their deities for next fifty years and worship only the mother India. And precisely after fifty years India got independence. Swamiji has also predicted that India would emerge as jagadguru (world leader/guide). And for this to come true he had his faith on the youth power”. Unfortunately we could not actualize the words of swamiji even after 150 years. Indian leadership after independence has crushed the dreams of great men of this land. We had a hope that 21st century would be of India’s, but even after the end of first decade of 21st century we saw a shocking incident of power cut which engulfed the 60% parts of the country. In such a situation, Gujarat was brightening with uninterrupted power supply, said the chief minister.

Countering to the falsehood spread by Congress Mr.Modi said that Gujarat has given 72% of employment out of total employment provided in the country during last five years. He challenged the Prime Minister to compete with Gujarat on the front of giving employment. “If Gujarat can give 72% of employment, why not the Centre”, he questioned. Highlighting the pro-people initiatives of state government Mr.Modi said the government has decided to stay as guarantor for the youths who avail bank loans for business or professions. During last 11 years the state government has made 3.5 lakh recruitments. Upper age bar for government jobs has been raised from 25 to 28 and from 28 to 30. The government will build modern hostels in 62 cities at the cost of Rs.100 crore for the youths who come to cities for higher education.

He said the state government has decided to build a sports complex in every district. Moreover, sports kits will be distributed to all the 14,000 Vivekananda Yuva Kendras of the state.

Chief Minster also announced the decision of implementing choice based education system for the university students. He expressed desire to provide ample of opportunities to the youths for actualizing the dreams of swami Vivekananda.

PM Modi addresses public meeting at Asansol, West Bengal
April 17, 2021
People from all corners of India are seen in Asansol. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol: PM Modi
PM Modi says on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Didi will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state
In Asansol, PM Modi says Mamata Banerjee has skipped several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues


Addressing a huge rally in West Bengal’s Asansol ahead of sixth phase of assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “TMC was broken after four phases of polls, `Didi' and `Bhatija' will be defeated by end of West Bengal elections. Voting of the fifth phase is also going on where people in large numbers are voting for the lotus flower to form the BJP government.”

“This region of Asansol has the potential to become the industrial centre of India since a long time. From bicycle to rail, from paper to steel, from aluminium to glass - people come from all across India to work in these factories. In a way, Asansol is mini India. People from all corners of India are seen here. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol,” said PM Modi while addressing the public meeting.

Speaking on Mamata Didi’s anti-development agenda, PM Modi stated, “Mamata Banerjee is against development of Bengal. We will work for the aspirations of the people of Bengal. New investment will come in. Bengal needs a government of double engines, not those who are stopping development. The BJP government of Bengal will implement every scheme that benefits you, which was stopped by Didi's government.”

Coming down hard at TMC supremo, the PM asserted, “Her politics is not limited to just protests, but it has crossed a dangerous limit of vengeance.” The Prime Minister also slammed Banerjee for skipping several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues. He said, “In the last two meetings on Corona, the rest of the Chief Ministers came, but Didi did not. The rest of the Chief Ministers came to the Governing Council of NITI Aayog, but Didi did not. Such a huge campaign started in the country to clean river Ganga, but Didi did not even attend the meeting related to it.”

Prime Minister Modi while addressing a rally in Asansol said that on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Mamata Banerjee will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state.

Taking about the leaked audio of Mamata Banerjee, the Prime Minister remarked, “You must have heard an audio tape on what happened in Cooch Behar yesterday. The audio was of Didi doing politics after the tragic death of 5 people. In this audio, the TMC leader of Cooch Behar was being asked by Didi to organize a rally with the dead bodies of the slain.”
