This demonstrates the tremendous hard work being put in by all of you in Kerala."

PM Modi addresses public meetings in Sagar and Betul, Madhya Pradesh
April 24, 2024
Development happens when there are the right policies and a clear vision: PM Modi in Sagar
Whether it's the country or Madhya Pradesh, development came when Congress left and BJP came: PM Modi in Sagar
Congress wants to snatch your property and impose inheritance tax: PM Modi in Sagar
Congress wants to loot your property and distribute it among its favorite vote bank: PM in Betul
INDI Alliance is now thinking about the 'One year, One PM formula': PM Modi in Betul

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed massive public gatherings in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar and Betul, reaffirming the strong support of the people for the BJP government and emphasizing the importance of stable governance for development.

Addressing the enthusiastic crowd, PM Modi said, "Today, there is an ocean of public support on the land of Sagar. Last time, you gave the BJP a victory here with record votes. Sagar has once again made up its mind, Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar."

Highlighting the transformative development under the BJP government, PM Modi stated, "The people of Madhya Pradesh and Sagar know very well how important it is to have a stable and strong government for the development of the country. Development happens when there are the right policies and a clear vision. Therefore, whether it's the country or Madhya Pradesh, development came when Congress left and BJP came."

PM Modi praised the progress of Madhya Pradesh under the BJP government, citing projects such as the Ken-Betwa Link Project, Banda Major Irrigation Project, and the development of a comprehensive network of highways including expressways like Narmada Expressway, Vindhya Expressway, and others.

"The central government has also given Madhya Pradesh the gift of more than 350 rail projects. Medical colleges and hospitals have also been built in Sagar," he added.

PM Modi assured the crowd of continued support, saying, "I guarantee my mothers and sisters that there will be no need to worry about ration for the next 5 years. We are working to bring gas, electricity, water, and toilet facilities to every household to alleviate the troubles of mothers and sisters."

Addressing the reservation issue, PM Modi criticized the Congress party's agenda, stating, "Today, a truth of the Congress has come before the country that everyone is stunned to know. Our Constitution prohibits giving reservations based on religion. Congress is preparing to cut the quota of ST-SC-OBC by 15 % and then apply reservations based on religion. Last time, when there was a Congress government in Karnataka, it gave reservations based on religion. When the BJP government came, it revoked this decision. Now once again, Congress has given reservations based on religion in Karnataka.”

Highlighting the intentions of Congress through their manifesto, PM Modi said, “Congress is not stopping at just hurting you. Congress also wants to snatch your property. Even if you have two vehicles, one house in the city, and one in the village, you will still come under Congress's radar. They want to snatch all this from you and give it to their vote bank.”

PM Modi warned against Congress's approach towards inheritance tax, saying, "Congress also wants to impose inheritance tax on the property you want to leave for your children. And imagine, Congress has cut so much from India's social values, the sentiments of Indian society."

“The Congress party hates the Constitution of the country. They hate the identity of India. That's why they are working on every project that weakens the country, weakens the country's fabric. They come up with new strategies to divide society. Our faith has kept us united for centuries. The Congress party attacks that faith,” he added.

Addressing his second public gathering in Betul, Madhya Pradesh, PM Modi expressed his gratitude to the people of Betul for their enthusiasm towards the Lok Sabha elections and highlighted the significant contributions of the region to the nation's progress.

He further emphasized the role of voters in driving the country's development over the past decade. "It is your vote that has ensured rapid development in the country over the past 10 years. Your vote has made India the fifth-largest economy in the world. Your vote has made India's voice heard across the globe. Your vote has made our enemies across the border cautious," said PM Modi.

Speaking about the contributions of tribal revolutionary leaders from Betul, PM Modi said, "Betul is the sacred land of brave souls who have sacrificed their lives for the unity and integrity of the country. The contributions of tribal revolutionary leaders like Sardar Ganjan Singh Korku and Sardar Vishnu Singh Gond can never be forgotten."

PM Modi also criticized the Congress party for its divisive policies and highlighted its neglect of tribal contributions. He accused Congress of attempting to erase the legacy of tribal leaders and snatch away reservations from SC-ST-OBC communities.

Regarding Congress's recent proposals on inheritance tax and reservation based on religion, PM Modi said, "Congress can go to any extent to please its vote bank. Congress wants to loot your property and distribute it among its favorite vote bank. It is a danger bell for the entire OBC society of the country."

Speaking about INDI Alliance’s plan over who will become India’s next Prime Minister, PM Modi "Today, when the country is working towards its 25-year goals, planning the roadmap for the next 5 years, work is underway on the decisions of the first 100 days after coming into government, the INDI Alliance partners are also discussing their strategy. Some media reports suggest that the coalition partners are discussing who will become the Prime Minister after their victory. It is said that these people are now thinking about the 'One year, One PM formula'. Their intention now is to wrestle for the PM's chair. One will sit on top, while four people pull the chair's legs together.”

During his concluding remarks, PM Modi urged the people to be cautious of Congress's agenda and to support the development-oriented policies of the Modi government.
