On the morning of Thursday 18th October 2012 Shri Narendra Modi was felicitated for the creation of a separate Dholera Taluka. Shri Modi spoke about the pheneomenal development in Dholera and took on the UPA Government for cheating the people.

Shri Modi said that Dholera is now on the map of the world and spoke about the prosperity that has come into the lives of the people of Dholera.   He affirmed that no one would have imagined that there would be so much money in Dholera. The Chief Minister asked the people to use the money to educate their children and asked the people to continue to work hard in the future.

On the development of Dholera Shri Modi recalled that when he had gone to Japan, the people saw a film on Dholera that left them impressed. He declared that Dholera will be the world’s biggest SIR and added that the airport in Dholera will be larger than that in Ahmedabad also.

Shri Modi said that the creation of a new Dholera Taluka will help the people immensely. Government offices will come here and it will have its own Taluka Panchayat. Talking about the development in Gujarat, Shri Modi stated that the budget for irrigation during the last Congress rule in 1996-1997 was Rs. 600 crore whereas today, Rs. 700 crore is spent on getting water for Dhandhuka and Dholka!

Shri Modi recalled that Mrs. Sonia Gandhi visited Chhota Udepur in 2007 and that time the media wrote extensively on how there were record number of people attneding her meet and how Modi is wiped out but in the ensuing elections the Congress was wiped out in Chhota Udepur. Similarly, this time Mrs. Gandhi came to Rajkot and the result will be a step ahead of what it was in Chhota Udepur. The Chief Minister said that if somebody commits a mistake, the people forgive him but asked if the people can fogive those who cheat? Shri Modi affirmed that the Congress is known to cheating the people and listed out instances of the Congress cheating. He spoke about how the Congress promised free power to the farmers of Maharashtra but 4 years on nothing of that sort has happened. They promised to being down prices in 100 days but prices have only increased. He asked if this is not cheating the peope to which the unanimous reply was “YES!”

Shri Modi declared that the Congress cheats their own workers as well. He spoke about how the Congress told their workers that there will be early elections. After that they said they will come out with the list of candidates by 1st May and that was later extended to 15th August. Shri Modi asked how can leave a state to those people who tell lies to their own workers? Shri Modi affirmed that the Congress has been in power in New Delhi for the past 8 yeats but have we heard any good news from Delhi? He stated that we cant let Gujarat come into the hands of those who looted the nation and added that he is a Chowkidar who will not let the land come into Gujarat.

The felicitation was very well attended by people from all age groups and communities. Women turned up in large numbers to join the occasion.

Amidst the ongoing election campaigning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public meeting in Gaya, Bihar. Seeing the massive crowd, PM Modi said, “This immense public support, your enthusiasm, clearly indicates - June 4, 400 Paar! Gaya and Aurangabad have announced today – Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar!”

"Just two days ago, the BJP released its Sankalp Patra. This is the first time that the Sankalp Patra of any party is being called a guarantee card. Because over the past 10 years, everyone has seen Modi's guarantee, which means a guarantee of fulfilment,” added PM Modi.

Talking about how the Congress and RJP exploited the poor, PM Modi asserted, “For decades, the Congress, which ruled the country, squandered opportunities, wasting the nation's time. We have lifted 25 crore people out of poverty. For decades, Congress and its allies showed dreams of bread and shelter to the poor. The NDA government has provided pucca houses to 4 crore poor. Jitan Ram Manjhi is a witness to how the Congress and the RJD exploited the names of Dalits, oppressed, and backward classes for their own political selfishness. The NDA has given rights and dignified lives to Dalits, oppressed, and backward classes.”

Focussing on development projects, PM Modi stated, "In our agenda, there is both development and heritage. You also know how long the North Koel project was pending. It's the NDA government that has put it back on track. The completion of this project will be a significant boon for the farmers of Gaya and Aurangabad, providing irrigation facilities. Under our government, Gaya Ji has also been included in the list of 12 ancient historical heritage sites under the PRASAD scheme." He further said, “This pace of development is just a trailer. I have much more to do for the country.”

Slamming the Opposition for doing politics over Ram Temple, PM Modi iterated, "Tomorrow is Ram Navami, a festival where the rays of the sun will specially bless the forehead of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya. However, the people of the INDI Alliance are also troubled by the Ram temple. Those who once questioned the existence of Lord Ram are now speaking all kinds of language against the Ram Mandir! To appease a community, these people have even boycotted the consecration ceremony. A leader of this alliance, Congress's Shehzada, has openly declared that he will destroy the Shakti of Hinduism. Their other companions call our ancient tradition Dengue Malaria. Can you tell me, are these people worthy of winning even a single seat?”

Accusing the RJD of casting the state in a negative light, PM Modi remarked, “RJD has ruled Bihar for several years but they don't have the guts to discuss the work done by their government. RJD has only given two things to Bihar - Jungle Raj and Corruption. It was during their era when kidnapping and ransom became an industry in Bihar. Our sisters and daughters couldn't step out of their homes. Areas like our Gaya were engulfed in the flames of Naxal violence. RJD forced many families to leave Bihar out of compulsion.”

He went on to say, “I say, eradicate corruption, and they say, save the corrupt. They think that the people of Bihar, the youth of Bihar, will fall for their words. In the era of smartphones, the smart youth of Bihar will never align with the goons of Jungle Raj. If RJD were in power, even your mobile phone battery wouldn't get charged. Those who want to charge mobile phones with their lanterns do not want the country to progress.”

Lashing out at the opposition, PM Modi said, “Those who insult Sanatan should listen carefully: even in the Constituent Assembly that drafted India's Constitution, 80-90% of the members were Sanatanis, and these Sanatanis collaborated with Dr. B.R. Ambedkar to create such an outstanding Constitution. For the opposition, the constitution will be a political tool, but for us, the constitution is the cornerstone of our faith.”
