"Nation needs a strong government. You gave 60 years to Congress please give us 60 months: Shri Modi in West Bengal"
"The sight here shows real Parivartan is coming. We have seen the Nakli Parivartan now is time for Asli Parivartan: Shri Modi"

On the morning of 10th April, Shri Narendra Modi addressed a large crowd of supporters at Darjeeling in West Bengal. He spoke of how the time for ‘Asli Parivartan’ (real change) had come, and urged the people to support the BJP for India’s bright future. Shri Modi stated of the Central government’s penchant for indulging in scams and ruining the Nation, and appealed to the people to wipe out their presence in 2014 Elections.

Shri Modi spoke of how the 2014 Elections would witness the people punishing those who have ruined the Nation. He stated how the Nation was yearning for a strong and stable government, whose primary focus would be people’s welfare. “The sight here shows real Parivartan is coming. We have seen the Nakli Parivartan now is time for Asli Parivartan. The Nation needs a strong government. You gave 60 years to Congress please give us 60 months,” said Shri Modi.

The Central and the Bengal state government’s penchant for doing scams was stated by Shri Modi when he spoke of the chit fund cheating scam in the region. “A scam may be big or small, but it shows the mentality of the people who commit these loots. The Chit fund cheating has happened and money of the poor has gone. Bless us so that we can punish those who cheated the poor,” said Shri Modi. He further spoke of how the Left government too had, after getting entangled in votebank politics, miserably failed to work for the State’s progress.

Retaliating to Congress President’s comments on the BJP having chosen magicians as their candidates, Shri Modi said that the Nation was not worried about magicians but was scared of UPA’s ‘Black magic’ that had ripped the Nation off employment opportunities for youth and growth prospects for its people.

Shri Modi also spoke of the Gurkha community which had been fighting for its rights since years, but was never adhered to by the Central government. He affirmed that with the BJP’s focus on ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’, every section of the society would witness development, irrespective of the cast or class they belonged to. He affirmed of his vision to develop a separate development plan for the states in the Himalayan range, and assured that under the BJP government this would be ensured. Stating the significance of 2Ts for the region’s progress, Shri Modi spoke of how giving a boost to Tea cultivation and Tourism will take the state forward on the growth chart.

Shri Rahul Sinha, Shri Siddharth Nath and Shri Satpal Maharaj were among the senior leaders present on the occasion.

At the invitation of the President of the European Council Mr. Charles Michel, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the India-EU Leaders’ Meeting today.

The meeting was held in a hybrid format with the participation of leaders of all the 27 EU Member States as well as the President of the European Council and the European Commission. This is the first time that the EU hosted a meeting with India in the EU+27 format. The meeting was the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

During the meeting, the leaders expressed their desire to further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership based on a shared commitment to democracy, fundamental freedoms, rule of law and multilateralism. They exchanged views on three key thematic areas: i) foreign policy and security; ii) COVID-19, climate and environment; and iii) trade, connectivity and technology. They discussed forging closer cooperation on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery, tackling climate change, and reforming multilateral institutions. India appreciated the prompt assistance provided by the EU and its member states to combat its second COVID wave.

The leaders welcomed the decision to resume negotiations for balanced and comprehensive free trade and investment agreements. Negotiations on both the Trade and Investment Agreements will be pursued on parallel tracks with an intention to achieve early conclusion of both agreements together. This is a major outcome which will enable the two sides to realise the full potential of the economic partnership. India and the EU also announced dedicated dialogues on WTO issues, regulatory cooperation, market access issues and supply chain resilience, demonstrating the desire to deepen and further diversify economic engagement.

India and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive ‘Connectivity Partnership’ which is focused on enhancing digital, energy, transport and people-to-people connectivity. The Partnership is based on the shared principles of social, economic, fiscal, climate and environmental sustainability, and respect for international law and commitments. The Partnership will catalyse private and public financing for connectivity projects. It will also foster new synergies for supporting connectivity initiatives in third countries, including in the Indo-Pacific.

India and the EU leaders reiterated their commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and agreed to strengthen joint efforts for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change, as well as providing means of implementation including finance in the context of COP26. India welcomed the EU’s decision to join CDRI.

India and the EU also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation on digital and emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, Quantum and High-Performance Computing including through the early operationalization of the Joint Task Force on AI and the Digital Investment Forum.

The leaders noted with satisfaction the growing convergences on regional and global issues, including counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime cooperation. The leaders acknowledged the importance of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific and agreed to closely engage in the region, including in the context of India’s Indo-Pacific Ocean’s Initiative and the EU’s new strategy on the Indo-Pacific.

Coinciding with the Leaders’ Meeting, an India-EU Business Roundtable was organised to highlight the avenues for cooperation in climate, digital and healthcare. A finance contract of Euro 150 million for the Pune Metro Rail Project was signed by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, and European Investment Bank.

India-EU Leaders Meeting has set a significant milestone by providing a new direction to the Strategic Partnership and giving a fresh impetus for implementing the ambitious India-EU Roadmap 2025 adopted at the 15th India-EU Summit held in July 2020.
