On the evening of Wednesday 6th February 2013 Shri Narendra Modi delivered the Shri Ram Keynote Oration at Delhi University’s prestigious Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC). In an inspiring speech the Chief Minister affirmed that development alone is the solution to all the problems and expressed confidence that it is the youth of India that will fulfill Swami Vivekananda’s dream of a Jagad Guru Bharat. He talked at length about Gujarat’s initiatives in agriculture, industry and the services sector. The lecture was attended by record number of youngsters. Shri Modi’s speech was followed by a standing ovation by the audience.

We have got Swarajya but after 6 decades of freedom the nation wants Surajya 

“I am coming here from the land of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Look towards the freedom struggle, both strands were led by people from Gujarat. There was Shyamji Krishnavarma who inspired the revolutionaries and there was Mahatma Gandhi who gave us freedom.”

“Many people gave their lives so that nation gets Swarajya. We got Swarajya but its been more than six decades, the nation wants Surajya.”

“If India has to make place for itself on world map, we need to think of giving importance to Surajya. Surajya is nothing but good governance.”

With the same laws, same rules, regulations, same people, we can move ahead & do lots 

“Our model is P2G2- Pro People, Good Governance. Rulers often follow path of firefighting. But they must visualize things, discover new things, and dream to bring about change. But, in last 6 decades we have not been able to do it. Due to this there is air of pessimism in the nation.”

People think “Sab Chor Hai” or "I want to leave from here" but my thought is different. This is my 4th term as Chief Minister and from experience I can say that with the same laws, same rules, regulations, same people, we can move ahead & do lots”

“Optimists say the glass is half full, pessimists say the glass is half empty- I say, this glass full- filled half with air, half with water!”

We are blessed with youth and immense natural resources 

“An Ambassador from a foreign country came to meet me. After formal discussions he tried to talk to me about politics. He asked what are two challenges for India? I said biggest challenge is how to use opportunities. He asked 'How?’ I said we are the most youthful nation in the world. Europe is aging, so is China, while we are a youthful nation. Sadly we are not able to use this as an opportunity. This is big challenge.”

“I also said our nation is not poor. We have so many natural resources. See our Eastern India, it is full of natural resources. But we are not able to channelize this opportunity and create wealth. This is a challenge we have to overcome.”

We are not pitching our tent on a single pillar but on three aspects of agriculture, industry and services! 

“We are not pitching our tent on a single pillar. Our development model is based on 3 aspects- development of agriculture, industry and services sector. We want all 3 sectors to grow where each supports the other so that state economy is never in trouble.”

“Nation's agriculture growth is at 2.5%. Guj was never a state known for agriculture, it was known for desert on one side and Pakistan on the other. Despite that, a state known for its water scarcity is growing at 10% in agriculture and creating a new history.”

“We worked very hard for it (success in agriculture). You read about the Vibrant Gujarat Summits but that is held two days once every two years. Every year we do Krishi Mahotsavs. Officials go to villages, to the farms and they devote time on how to take new innovations to the farms.”

“People do not have health card in many places but in Gujarat farmers have soil health cards. We took great initiatives in irrigation. We built more than 6 lakh irrigation structures. Our water table is rising, we are the only state where the water table is rising.”

“In 2001-02 when I became CM, 23 lakh bales of cotton was produced, today it stands at 1 crore 23 lakh bales. Our next step should be value addition. So we are working on that. We got a new Textile Policy. We have a 5F formula- from Farm to Fibre to Fabric to Fashion to Foreign. Till we do not take integrated approach then nothing will happen.”

“With agriculture there is animal husbandry. The milk in your tea is from Gujarat. Have a ladyfinger in Europe or milk in Singapore, it will be from Gujarat and in Afghanistan tomatoes are from Gujarat. We do medical camps for cattle. 3000 camps are held. In last 6 years, 120 diseases have been eradicated totally. Gujarat has seen 80% rise in milk production.”

“We are working towards increasing purchasing power & that cannot happen if our economic chart is not sustained”

Shri Modi shares invaluable development insights about Gujarat 

“Gujarat was never ahead in services sector earlier. We were best tourists but Gujarat was never tourist destination. Today, our tourism growth is double of that of India. Mr. Amitabh Bachchan says ‘Kuch Din Gujaro Gujarat Me’ (Spend some days in Gujarat).”

“See the sphere of education. In 2001 we had 11 Universities today we have 42 Universities! And these are not ordinary Universities. We are 1st to have a forensic science university. We are first state to have Raksha Shakti University where whoever wants to join police, army can join & after regular course he can pursue dreams. We have most youthful police force in India. We have stressed on technology savvy police force.”

“We did IITE for Teachers Education. Why cannot we create new teachers? We are first in India to start this University. It is my dream- world needs millions of teachers, we have youngsters, why can’t we send teachers also? A businessman goes, he controls money but a teacher captures a generation!”

Let us make the world our market and send our goods to the world!

“In industrial development, we are lagging behind because we did not stress on technology upgradation.”

“Ahmedabad was called the Manchester of the East but the mills closed down. Why? Because we did not upgrade our technology. Technology upgradation is must.”

Let us make the world our market and send our goods to the world. Branding is needed. When we were small, we read 'Made in Japan' and we bought a product. No one asked what company did the product belong to. Why cannot we make 'Made in India' brand for India? However, we cannot do this only in one sphere.

“Till December 2012 we were busy with the elections then the swearing in ceremony but on 11th January 2013 we organized Vibrant Gujarat Summit. 121 nations were there. Under one roof, the who's who were there. When the world sees this, they say,  ‘yes there is strength here. We can join with them.’ And once we start there is no looking back.”

Our Mantra is- Gujarat’s growth for India’s growth

“Our Mantra is Gujarat's Growth for India's Growth. All this development is for India. There are few who would not have eaten Gujarat's salt. When Gujarat develops, the nation gains from this.”

“We have to adopt 'Zero Defect Mantra' and other is packaging. We need to study consumer psyche and then work on manufacturing sector.”

Swami Vivekananda dreamt of a Jagad Guru Bharat. It is for us to fulfill his dream

“This is 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda. We are commemorating it as the Yuva Varsh. We have to decide how we have to see youth of the nation. I am worried that many, especially for political people, youth is merely a New Age Voter. If this remains we cannot bring change. I want that this nation does not see youth as new age voter but they are the New Age Power”

“Swami Vivekananda dreamt of a Jagat Guru Bharat. Is it not for us to fulfill his dream? Need of the hour that with the youth power we move towards a Bhavya & Divya Bharat.”

World says 21st century is India's century, some say it is China's century, some say it is Asia's century. Whenever we have entered Gyan Yug (era of knowledge), we have led the world! 21st century is century of knowledge and I am sure it can be India's century. We have such a talented pool of youth.”

“Earlier the world saw us as land of snake charmers. Today our youth has gone to world and changed this. We are the land of mouse charmers now- with the click of a mouse our youth have drawn the world’s attention to India.”

“Our youth has the skill. Whatever is the colour of our skin, we are no less than the world.”

Skill, Scale and Speed for a developed India

“To compete with China we need to stress on three things- Skill, Scale and Speed. Skill Development must be strengthened, Scale must be big, and Speed must be quick.”

“We have done a movement towards Skill Development. This is not happening at such a scale nowhere in India.”

“I feel Government has no business to be in business. I believe in minimum government, maximum Governance.”

“Solution to all problems is development. Country has been ruined by votebank politics. It needs development politics.”

Earlier, the Chairman of the SRCC Governing Body Shri Ajay Shriram spoke on the occasion. SRCC Principal welcomed the Chief Minister and presented the vote of thanks.

In Siliguri, PM Modi says what happened in Cooch Behar is saddening, 'new low' for Didi
Mamata Didi and her goons have become jittery seeing the people’s support in favour of BJP: PM Modi
In Bengal, after we form the govt, you will be provided all benefits & schemes without cut-money: PM Modi
We are committed to free the 3Ts (Tea, Tourism and Timber) from the controls of mafia: PM Modi in Siliguri
After years of bloodshed, fear, atrocity and goodaism, Bengal will now walk towards peace and progress to fulfil the vision of 'Sonar Bangla': PM Modi
This election of Bengal is not only being fought by BJP, people of Bengal are also fighting this election: PM Modi in Krishnanagar

PM Modi addressed two mega rallies ahead of fourth phase of election in West Bengal’s Siliguri and Krishnanagar. “The entire North Bengal has announced that TMC government is going and BJP government is coming. Today, the entire nation is proud to see the willpower of the people of Bengal. This willpower is of the ‘Ashol Poriborton’. This willpower is the strength of ‘Sonar Bangla’,” he said in Siliguri rally.

Expressing anguish over Cooch Behar incident, PM Modi said, “What happened in Cooch Behar is very saddening. My sympathies are with the families of those who died, I condole their demise. Didi and her goons are perturbed, seeing the people's support for BJP. She has stooped to this level as she can see her chair slipping away.”

Reacting to the violence in Cooch Behar, he also said, “Didi, this violence, tactics of instigating people to attack the Security Forces, the tactics of obstructing the polling process will not protect you. This violence can't protect you from the 10 years of your ill-governance.”

Amidst the fourth phase of West Bengal Assembly polls, the Prime Minister asserted, “I saw a video on social media. In it, the tourism minister of Bengal who is close to Didi is threatening the people of the state, saying if people voted for BJP, people will be thrown out of the Bengal. Will you accept this language, such sort of threat?”

Accusing Mamata didi for not showing her 10 years report card of her governance, PM Modi remarked, “Didi's goons are not able to do 'chhappa votes' this time around and thus, Didi is angry. She never presented her report card for 10 years. She should be giving the account of her works, her nephew's works and her goons' works.”

PM Modi, who has been relentlessly campaigning in West Bengal during assembly elections, hit out at Mamata Banerjee for her government’s patronage to syndicates, tolabaazs and cut-money mafias during a rally in Siliguri.

“It's time to change the kind of political environment, that has been created in Bengal for past several decades. 'Tolabaaj mukt' Bengal will be formed now. 'Syndicate mukt' Bengal will be formed now. 'Cut money mukt' Bengal will be formed now,” he added further.

Talking about TMC leader Sujata Mondal who made disparaging comments against the Dalit community. PM Modi without taking name said, “The thinking of Didi and TMC leaders is coming out in the open. A video is going viral on social media where a leader close to Didi can be seen blatantly accusing the Scheduled Caste community of Bengal as ‘beggars by nature’.”

In Siliguri, PM Modi accused Didi for not giving even tap-water to the people of Bengal, he said, “She did not provide irrigation water in the fields. But the rivers here were handed over to the mafias. Every scheme has tolabaz, every scheme has cut-money. A few days ago in Siliguri, Didi said that her tolabaaz only take 100-500 rupees, what is the big deal in this?”

Exuding confidence of forming the BJP government in the state, the PM stated, “In Bengal, after we form the government, you will be provided all benefits and schemes without cut money. The BJP government in Bengal will work on lines of how we worked during COVID lockdown. The Central government sent thousands of crores to everyone during the lockdown. The BJP government in Bengal will work with the same transparency.”

In Krishnanagar’s rally, the Prime Minister said, “After a wait for decades, the 'mahayagya' of 'ashol poribortan' has started in Bengal. This 'mahayagya' will teach a lesson to appeasers. After years of bloodshed, fear, atrocity and goondaism, Bengal will now walk towards peace and progress to fulfil the vision of 'Sonar Bangla'. This land will be freed of mafia, cow traffickers and infiltration.”

“The BJP has come into existence with the blessings of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee,” PM Modi said. The Prime Minister added that his party is fortunate that the people of Bengal are going to give them the opportunity to serve Bengal.

Taking a jibe at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, PM Modi said, “Seeing defeat, she has decided to do politics outside Bengal. The Varanasi thing has not been come out like this. That is, after the election, Didi will take an exit and the nephew will stake claim to play a new Khela in Bengal. This is also a game, which the people of Bengal have to understand.”

PM Modi slammed TMC supremo for abusing EC, CAPF, EVM, he asserted, “Didi abuses EC, CAPF, EVM.. to the extent, that Didi is abusing her own party's polling agents now. She is so desperate that she is defaming Bengal's voters. Didi, o Didi! People of Bengal don't expect you to have sensitivity any more.”

The Prime Minister criticised the ruling Trinamool Congress government, he alleged, “What did TMC government give to the youth of Bengal - unemployment, riots, lathis, and now, insults. Even the minority classes that Didi continued to serve are also at distress due to cut money and syndicate.”

Touting “double engine ki sarkar” as the best option for voters the Prime Minister said, “I request all young karyakartas to help spread the word of ‘ashol poriborton’ to their families and neighbours. He ended his speech with an appeal to voters to press the button for the lotus flower in upcoming elections. “In every seat and in every booth you just have to remember one thing ‘Ebar kamal chap, TMC saaf” the Prime Minister said.
