“People of Gujarat will answer the anti-Gujarat elements in a democratic way” ~ Shri Narendra Modi

Concluding his daylong fast at Surat today as a part of Sadbhavna Mission Chief Minister Narendra Modi said that people of Gujarat has a power to answer the anti-Gujarat elements in a democratic way. Their answer is manifested through their support to the Sadbhavna Mission.

Citizens of Surat including the women, youths, society leaders, industrialists, saints, social workers and office bearers of various organizations thronged the venue conveying their support and well wishes to the Chief Minister and his mission.

Welcoming the large turnout Chief Minister announced development projects worth Rs.2100 crore for Suarat including the projects for BRTS and the construction of new bridges. The people and different organizations of Surat gave an amount of Rs.30 lakh as a donation to the Chief Minister’s Kanya Kelavani Nidhi.

Speaking on the occasion Chief Minister said that people of Gujarat will not tolerate the defamation drive that has been launched by the anti-Gujarat elements. These elements have gone a long way and are even misusing constitutional organizations to defame Gujarat. Gujarat never troubles anybody but it also knows how to give a tough answer when it is being troubled by somebody.

The huge support of the people to the Sadbhavana mission is an answer to those who device plots to tarnish the image of Gujarat. Gujarat has left behind the venoms of communalism and casteism and has adhered to the values of peace, unity and harmony. Political pandits should analyze why people are voluntarily supporting the Sadbhavna fast and the growth polity of Gujarat, he said.

Mr. Modi said that people have not seen the instances of riots and curfews during the last decade. The reason behind this is the atmosphere of peace, unity and harmony that is prevailing in the state.

“People who play vote-bank politics can not realize the power of Sadbhavna Mission, because they don’t want real development. I don’t waste time behind those who are inclined to see Gujarat with negative mentality. I want to put India on the track of Sadbhavna”, he said.

Tribal development Minister Mangubhai Patel, Panchayat Minister Narottam Patel, Minister of State for Cottage industries Ranjit Gilitwala, Minister of State for Home Praful Patel, Mayor Rajubhai Desai, MP C R Patil, Darshnaben Jardosh, MLAs Kishorbhai Vankavala, Nanubhai Vanani, Kiritbhai Patel, Bhartiben Rathod, Municipal Commissioner M K Das, government officials and people in large number were present on the occasion.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public meeting today in Chikkaballapur, Karnataka. Speaking to a vibrant crowd, he highlighted the achievements of the NDA government and sought support for Dr. K. Sudhakar from Chikkaballapur and Mallesh Babu Muniswamy from the Kolar constituency.

Addressing the enthusiastic gathering, PM Modi said, "The enthusiasm of the nation has been uplifted by the voting in the first phase, and I can see this enthusiasm here as well. In the first phase, the voting has been in favor of the NDA, in favor of a developed India."

He emphasized the lack of leadership and vision in the opposition coalition and said, "The INDI Alliance currently lacks leadership, vision for the future, and their history is filled with scams. The message from Chikkaballapur and Kolar is clear, Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar!"

Presenting his report card to the people, PM Modi sought their blessings and reiterated his commitment to their welfare. He said, "Today, I am among you with my report card, seeking blessings. I consider you all as my family. I have worked day and night for you. Your dream is Modi's determination. That's why I not only make plans with true intentions but also guarantee them."

Highlighting the government's initiatives for the welfare of the poor, PM Modi mentioned the provision of free rations and healthcare. "The poor of our country never hoped to receive free rations. But this son of the poor, Modi, has shown what no one ever thought of. Modi guarantees that this will continue for the next five years," he said.

He also emphasized the importance of education and financial assistance for SC/ST/OBC communities. "The biggest beneficiaries of Modi government schemes are SC/ST/OBC families. In the past, they were forced to live in filth and slums, without even basic amenities like electricity and water. Modi's guarantee has restored their faith. That's why in the last ten years, twenty-five crore people have been lifted out of poverty," he added.

PM Modi outlined the government's focus on women's empowerment, mentioning the expansion of self-help groups and financial assistance for women. "Serving and securing every mother, sister, and daughter is Modi's priority. In the last ten years, we have connected ten crore sisters through self-help groups. We have made one crore sisters 'Lakhpati Didis'. Now Modi guarantees that three crore sisters will become 'Lakhpati Didis,' earning over one lakh rupees annually," he said.

Speaking about the NAMO Drone Didi Yojana, PM Modi said, "The NDA government is providing drone pilot training to girls. The day is not far when our daughters will assist in farming using drones in the fields of Kolar and Chikkaballapur." PM Modi also highlighted the government's efforts to promote agriculture, improve infrastructure, and develop tourism in the region.
