Highlights of PM’s address in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand:

Speaking at a public meeting in Rishikesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Government would take all possible measures to realise the dreams of the people.

Prime Minister Modi largely talked about the successful implementation of ‘One Rank, One Pension’ recently by the Government of India. “When we would talk of OROP earlier, we believed the previous government's figure of Rs. 500 crore. We thought figure would be around that. But when we went into the depth of the issue we realised the number stood at Rs. 10,000 crore”, added the PM.

PM Narendra Modi targeted Congress, saying that they have let down the spirit of democracy. PM said that Congress did not let the Parliament function properly even when all other parties wanted the House to function. “Congress is doing negative politics and that is why they are seeing these days”, he added.

He highlighted various initiatives taken by the Union Government. “We are working to provide 24/7 electricity to the people, including in the hills”, he added. He said that this Government won’t only make plans, but execute the roadmap to bring about a positive change in the country.
