There was a time when people from here had to travel to Surat with their grievances but now this has ended and people can go to Vyara: Shri Modi

Farmers of this region went to Finland to learn latest technology for cultivating bananas and are sending bananas all over the world: CM

 Congress ruled for 50 years yet created no facilities for studying science: Shri Modi

On the morning of Sunday 7th October 2012 Shri Narendra Modi addressed Vivekananda Yuva Vikas Yatra in Uchchhal, Tapi District. He spoke about the development initiatives in Gujarat over the last decade, especially in the Tribal belt from Umargam to Ambaji. Shri Modi said he remembered coming to Uchchhal when he was working for the party organization and thanked the people for their very warm welcome.

Shri Modi recalled that there was a time when the people of Uchchhal had to travel all the way to Surat with their grievances but his Government ended this and people now go to Vyara for the same.

The Chief Minister recalled another interaction he had with farmers from Uchchhal who told him that they went to Finland to learn latest technology in cultivating bananas and now the farmers from this area are sending bananas all over the world!

Speaking about the success of the 108 services in Gujarat, Shri Modi said that people from neighboring villages of Maharashtra too requested if the 108 service can help them when in need.

Shri Modi spoke about the political stability in Gujarat over the last decade and said that while Maharashtra has seen periodic change in Governments, it has not happened in Gujarat for 11 years. He recalled his oath taking as Chief Minister of Gujarat for the first time on this day in 2001. Shri Modi is the longest serving Chief Minister in the history of Gujarat.

In his speech Shri Modi affirmed that the Congress has always been giving false promises to the people. He said that the Congress ruled for 50 years but still they could not create education facilities to study science for Tribal communities. On the other hand there has been a paradigm shift in the development activates in the Tribal stretch from Umargam to Ambaji in the last decade and this stretch is now producing pilots, scientists etc. as well.

The Chief Minister stated that Congress President Mrs. Sonia Gandhi visited Rajkot but failed to say a word on the rising prices that is adversely affecting the common man.

Shri Modi concluded his speech by recalling the promises he made when he took oath as the Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2001. He had promised that he will continue to work very hard for the people of Gujarat and would provide an administration and development works that will make the 6 crore people of Gujarat raise their heads with immense pride. As he enters his 12th consecutive year in the service of the people of Gujarat, Shri Modi said that he has not only lived by these promises but also will continue to do so in the future.

Senior BJP leader and Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Shri Gopinath Munde was present at the Yatra and addressed the gathering and said that Shri Modi is the most popular Chief Minister in this country. BJP National Vice President Shri Purushottam Rupala addressed the gathering as well.

A massive number of people gathered on the occasion to support the Vivekananda Yuva Vikas Yatra and support Shri Modi.

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.
