Shri Modi while extolling this initiative taken by the Dawoodi Bohra community said that Bohra community has always earned pride for Gujarat anywhere in the world it has gone.

“Leading an active life even at 99, Dy.Syedna Saheb is an inspirational force for others. He gave blessings when Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors’ Summit was organized for the first time in Surat and today this investors’ summit has become ‘global’ in real sense”, Shri Modi said gladly adding that he has been fortunate to receive Dr.Syedna Saheb’s blessing every year.

Dawoodi Bohra community established its first university in 1920, which is even earlier than Gujarat Vidhyapith founded by Mahatma Gandhi in 1930. The community has always recognized the value of education which kept it away from vicious things. This is the sign of progressive society, Chief Minister said.

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.
