Vadodara, Monday: Chief Minister Narendra Modi reaffirmed his resolve to serve all cross-sections of the people taking everybody along overcoming all obstacles on the way to ensure the state's growth story reverberates around the globe through slogans like ‘Jai Jai Garvi Gujarat'.

He said that earlier rulers did not know what is meant by development in Local Self-Government institutions, which was besieged with favoritism. Before 2001, they had no idea of who are ‘urban poor', unable to prepare plans for the latter. The present government has built and allocated 1.25-lakh permanent residential units to the urban poor and is building another 60,000 units. The government has trained 1.25-lakh urban youth from poor families in various trades, as 129 of them got jobs abroad.

Mr. Modi was speaking at a function in Vadodara yesterday to mark the inauguration two railway flyovers at the Jetalpur-Swami Vivekanand and the new Field Marshal Manekshaw Yard built at cost of Rs.40.70-crore under Urban Development Golden Jubilee Plan. He also laid the foundation stone of three other over bridges at Amitnagar-Urmi School, Sama and Harinagar-Gotri, besides an overhead water tank at Sayajipur, involving an expenditure of Rs.140-crore.

He said that some development work or the other is taking place around every 25 km in the state and funds are also coming. It has been made possible only because I am sitting tight on the government treasury, not allowing anyone steal to their discomfiture. In the field of agriculture too, he said, Gujarat has brought 8-lakh ha of additional land under cultivation.

Urban Development Minister Nitinbhai Patel said that Gujarat Government has allotted Rs.7,000-crore under Golden Jubilee Urban Development Plan, in addition to Rs.700-crore budget. He complimented the people of Vadodara for funds allotted from Rs.200-crore development plans.

Mahanagar Seva Sadan Mayor Dr. Jyoti Pandya gave details about the development works in the welcome address at the function.

Prominent among those present on the occasion included Minister of State for Tourism Jitendrabhai Sukhadia, MP Balkrishna Shukla, Parliamentary Secretary Yogeshbhai Patel, MLAs Bhupendrabhai Kalhawala, Upendrasinhji Gohil, VUDA Chairman Naranbhai Patel, Bharatbhai Dangar, Deputy Mayor Arvindbhai Patel, Shabdasharan Brahmbhat, India's first women photographer Homaiji Vyarawala, Seva Sadan Commissioner Ashwini Kumar, DRM A.K. Shrivastava, Collector Vinod Rao, DDO Rakesh Shankar and a large number of people.

People from all corners of India are seen in Asansol. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol: PM Modi
PM Modi says on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Didi will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state
In Asansol, PM Modi says Mamata Banerjee has skipped several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues

 

Addressing a huge rally in West Bengal’s Asansol ahead of sixth phase of assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “TMC was broken after four phases of polls, `Didi' and `Bhatija' will be defeated by end of West Bengal elections. Voting of the fifth phase is also going on where people in large numbers are voting for the lotus flower to form the BJP government.”

“This region of Asansol has the potential to become the industrial centre of India since a long time. From bicycle to rail, from paper to steel, from aluminium to glass - people come from all across India to work in these factories. In a way, Asansol is mini India. People from all corners of India are seen here. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol,” said PM Modi while addressing the public meeting.

Speaking on Mamata Didi’s anti-development agenda, PM Modi stated, “Mamata Banerjee is against development of Bengal. We will work for the aspirations of the people of Bengal. New investment will come in. Bengal needs a government of double engines, not those who are stopping development. The BJP government of Bengal will implement every scheme that benefits you, which was stopped by Didi's government.”

Coming down hard at TMC supremo, the PM asserted, “Her politics is not limited to just protests, but it has crossed a dangerous limit of vengeance.” The Prime Minister also slammed Banerjee for skipping several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues. He said, “In the last two meetings on Corona, the rest of the Chief Ministers came, but Didi did not. The rest of the Chief Ministers came to the Governing Council of NITI Aayog, but Didi did not. Such a huge campaign started in the country to clean river Ganga, but Didi did not even attend the meeting related to it.”

Prime Minister Modi while addressing a rally in Asansol said that on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Mamata Banerjee will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state.

Taking about the leaked audio of Mamata Banerjee, the Prime Minister remarked, “You must have heard an audio tape on what happened in Cooch Behar yesterday. The audio was of Didi doing politics after the tragic death of 5 people. In this audio, the TMC leader of Cooch Behar was being asked by Didi to organize a rally with the dead bodies of the slain.”
