500 years later, Ram Navami arrives with Shri Ram seated in Ayodhya's grand temple: PM Modi

In Agartala, Tripura, Prime Minister Narendra Modi electrified the crowd ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections. With unwavering zeal, he unveiled the Viksit vision for the North East, promising growth encapsulated in BJP’s Sankalp Patra. Emphasizing the region's integral role in the nation, PM Modi reaffirmed the commitment to uplift the North East, resonating deeply with the people of Tripura.

Commencing his engaging address, PM Modi extended his heartfelt greetings on the Holy festival of Ram Navami. In his speech, the PM in an emotional state of mind expressed, “500 years later, Ram Navami arrives with Shri Ram seated in Ayodhya's grand temple. From a humble tent to this majestic abode, his blessings by the sun's rays mark a historic moment.” The PM added,” here in the sacred North East, where sunlight first touches, we witness this symbolic dawn of a new era. As the sun's rays illuminate, so does the resolve for a Viksit Tripura and a Viksit Bharat, propelling the nation forward on this auspicious day.

Taking pride in the North Eastern states and Tripura singularly, PM Modi exclaimed, “The North East plays a pivotal role in India's 21st-century development. Despite decades of independence and Congress rule, the region's potential was overlooked. In Tripura, communist governance brought destruction rather than progress. Today, the government in Delhi prioritizes the North East and our Tripura. Beyond politics, it's about love and priority for me.”

In anticipation of PM Modi's third term, a glimpse of what's ahead for Tripura was shared by the PM, “BJP vows to build 3 crore new houses nationwide in 5 years, benefiting Tripura as well. This is just a glimpse of BJP's decade-long commitment to Tripura and the North East. The party's Sankalp Patra for the next 5 years promises prosperity. Free ration for all beneficiaries will continue, guaranteed by Modi. Additionally, every elderly person above 70 will receive free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh under Ayushman Yojana, a significant announcement in BJP's Sankalp Patra.”

“The HIRA model on which our government has worked for the development of Tripura is being discussed in the entire country today. HIRA means Highway, Internet way, Railway and Airway! I promised you this and I have fulfilled it,” PM Modi added.

“Thanks to the development of railways, Tripura has been connected by more than a dozen trains in the last 10 years. The work of electrification of the state's railway lines has been completed rapidly. Our own government has started Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport in the capital Agartala,” PM Modi lauded Tripura's accelerated development efforts.

Amidst it all, PM Modi highlighted how the North-East languished under the 'Loot East Policy' of the Congress-INDI Alliance. A decade ago, he put an end to this damaging approach. “Today, we champion the Act East Policy, driving forward the region's development. With over 50 visits in the last decade, Modi reaffirms unwavering dedication to its growth,” the PM mentioned.

Launching a blistering attack on the opposition, PM Modi observed, “For Tripura, BJP signifies the politics of development, contrasting with the communists' history of destruction and Congress's legacy of corruption. Corruption thrived under CPM and Congress opposition rule, turning Tripura into a hub of violence and malpractice. Now, former adversaries unite to preserve their vested interests.”

“These Congress-Communists are so opportunistic that here in Tripura they have an alliance, but in Kerala, they are enemies of each other. In Kerala, Congress calls Communists terrorists and Communists call Congress very corrupt,” PM Modi expressed while exposing the realities of opposition parties.

“From Tripura, I want to shed light on the corruption games played across the country. The Congress yuvraj fled to Kerala post-election defeat in UP, only for the Kerala CM to criticize him. In retaliation, the Congress Yuvraj demands the CM's imprisonment for alleged corruption. It's ironic how the same Congress, known for lambasting investigating agencies, now calls for action against the Kerala CM. They silence criticism, yet demand action when criticized. We vow to hold corrupt individuals accountable, consistently exposing the truth about the Kerala CM's government. However, when action is taken, Congress accuses Modi of wrongdoing, revealing their true colours. While we fight corruption, Congress aims to protect the corrupt,” PM Modi shared his extreme discontent.

In his conclusive remark to the massive crowd, PM Modi affirmed with certainty that, “Every vote you cast for BJP will strengthen Modi's guarantee for the prosperity of Tripura.” The PM also thanked each and everyone in the crowd for their valuable presence.
