"“Congress-led UPA Govt destroys India’s federal democratic structure”"
"“Sharing and caring in federalism is a must for a strong India”"

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today lambasted at the Congress-led UPA Government’s vote bank politics hell bent on destroying India’s very fabric of democratic federal structure.

Speaking as the chief guest on the 42nd anniversary of Cho Ramaswamy’s magazine ‘
Tughlak’ in Chennai, he said the UPA Government has pushed the nation to the brink of crises like corruption, inflation and terrorism, consistently ignoring the vision of 120-crore strong people, comprising a vast youth power. The Union Government has adopted a policy of coercive federalism, instead of co-operation, necessary in a democracy with federal structure.

He said that the UPA Government has miserably failed in solving the common man’s problems and in implementing the rule of ‘good governance’, pushing the States to a subordinate position by centralizing and capturing all power. In the name of development, the Centre has monopolized all powers of financial allocations, reducing even the Constitutional rights of the States.

Post-Independence, the Congress party’s single party rule of negative vote bank politics for almost 40 years has spread an atmosphere of gloom and pessimism in the country. There is no direction. The government just maintains a status quo. The UPA Government is neck deep in trouble, owing to its explicit greed for power and position. It is least concerned about consolidation and expansion of its economy. The present government is by far the most corrupt government after Independence.

Mr. Modi said that the ‘Gujarat Model’ of development is already paying dividends and as it has generated a lot of hope amidst widespread gloom. Gujarat’s is capable of changing the political situation. Even as Gujarat’s annual growth rate exceeds 10 per cent, its mantra, “Gujarat’s development for India’s development”, could play a decisive role in India’s economy, too. He pointed out that Gujarat’s corruption-free good governance has come in for accolades from the world over, but the Congress-ruled Union Government is just reluctant to extend any incentive, let alone any assistance, to Gujarat. In fact, the UPA Government has spared no stone unturned as part of individualistic vindictive policy to single out and target certain states only.

In a gross misuse of Constitutional authorities and institutions like CBI, Intelligence Bureau and Income-Tax Department, Mr. Modi said, the Union Government in power has apparently instructed them: “If you don’t like a political leader, try to destroy him by any means.”

The Gujarat Government and Gujarat’s Chief Minister has to bear the brunt of the harassment, but the present incumbent doesn’t know how to bow down, as he is backed by the people of Gujarat. However, he said, the Centre’s this negative and retrograde politics of divide and rule is eating into the very fabric of India, pushing the nation to the brink of doom.

He cited the Centre’s rejecting the Gujcoc Bill, without weighing the gravity of international security, as a glaring example of the Centre’s attitude. He enlisted the communal violence Bill and the bid to reserve 4.5 per cent quota for the minorities from 27 per cent quota for OBC as another example of majority-minority vote bank politics.

“India is in need of clean and transparent governance in the 21st Century. A strong, stable and transparent leadership is the demand of the time,” he said.

If India has to become a global power, he said, there is a need for vision to ensure development of the youth’s skills, agricultural growth, infrastructure development, a strong manufacturing sector and create job opportunity for 50 million. India’s youth power is set to increase by 250 million in the years to come. It is this youth power which should be the growth engine of the nation’s economy. The vote bank policy is unlikely to continue any longer.

Talking about his Tamil Nadu counterpart, Mr. Modi described Selvi Jaylalitha as a courageous and visionary leader who is capable of guiding the destiny of TN as a most progressive state. “She is a leader who can give good governance and a corruption-free government,” he said and congratulated the people of TN for voting her back to power in the state.

Mr. Modi said that both Gujarat and Tamil Nadu are moving in the direction of good governance and development.

He praised the efforts to create a public awareness about the social and political issues by Mr. Cho Ramaswamy to educate people through his magazine ‘
Tughlak’.

Mr. Narendra Modi also extended warm greetings to the people on the auspices of Pongal.

The Hospital, whose foundational stone was also laid by the Prime Minister in October 2017, is being established under the Central sector scheme Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana.

AIIMS Bilaspur, constructed at a cost of more than Rs 1470 crore, is a state-of-the-art hospital with 18 specialty & 17 super specialty departments, 18 modular operation theaters, 750 beds with 64 ICU beds. Spread over 247 acres, the hospital is equipped with 24 hours emergency and dialysis facilities, modern diagnostic machines like ultrasonography, CT scan, MRI etc, Amrit Pharmacy & Jan Aushadhi Kendra and also a 30 bedded AYUSH block. The Hospital has also set up the Centre for Digital Health to provide health services in the tribal and inaccessible tribal areas of Himachal Pradesh. Also, specialist health services will be provided by the hospital through health camps in the inaccessible tribal and high Himalayan regions like Kaza, Saluni, and Keylong. The hospital will admit 100 students for MBBS Course and 60 students for nursing courses every year.

Development projects

Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of around 31 km long project for four laning of the National Highway from Pinjore to Nalagarh on NH-105, worth over Rs. 1690 crore. The project road is a major connecting link for the traffic from Ambala, Chandigarh, Panchkula and Solan /Shimla going towards Bilaspur, Mandi and Manali. About 18 km stretch of this four-lane national highway falls under Himachal Pradesh and the remaining portion falls in Haryana. This highway will ensure better transport facilities in Nalagarh-Baddi, the industrial hub of Himachal Pradesh, and will also give a fillip to further industrial development in the region. It will also boost tourism in the state.

Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of the Medical Device Park at Nalagarh, which will be built at a cost of about Rs 350 crore. MoUs of more than Rs. 800 crore have already been signed for setting up industries in this Medical Device Park. The project will significantly enhance employment opportunities in the region.

Prime Minister will also inaugurate the Government Hydro Engineering College at Bandla. Costing about Rs 140 crore, the college will help make available trained manpower for hydro power projects, in which Himachal Pradesh is one of the leading states. It will help in upskilling the youth and providing ample job opportunities in the hydro power sector.

Kullu Dussehra

The International Kullu Dussehra Festival will be celebrated from 5th to 11th October 2022 at Dhalpur Ground of Kullu. The Festival is unique in the sense that it is the congregation of more than 300 Deities of the Valley. On the first day of the Festival, the Deities in their well decorated palanquins pay their obeisance at the temple of the Chief Deity Bhagwan Raghunath Ji and then proceed to the Dhalpur Ground. Prime Minister will witness this divine Rath Yatra and the grand assembly of the Deities in the historic Kullu Dussehra celebrations. It will be the first time ever that the Prime Minister of the country is participating in the Kullu Dussehra celebrations.
