CM speaks about development in solar energy in GujaratShri Narendra Modi addressed massive public meetings in North Gujarat on the morning of Friday 7th December 2012. The Chief Minster spoke at Zeda in Banaskantha district followed by Sami in Patan district. Shri Modi said that the Congress ruled for years but never looked at the people and that is the reason that the people have rejected them for so many years. He stated that political pundits say there is no wave in Gujarat but he has travelled the entire state and he sees a super storm in favour of the BJP!
Shri Modi talked about the development in Gujarat over the past decade. He pointed out that people were hearing for years that the Narmada waters will come but nothing of that sort happened. It is this Government that brought the waters of the Narmada. “If the Narmada waters would have come 25-30 years ago imagine what would have happened?” he asked. Shri Modi added, “After the Narmada waters coming there is a difference. Good days have come, the farmers are happy. We have given water to every field and every village.”
Similarly, the Chief Minister pointed out that this region is known for its scorching heat but it now the Gujarat Government has turned this into an opportunity making this region a solar hub. He also talked about the creation of a new Shankheshwar Taluka, which will help the people of Shankheshwar and the people of Sami.
The Chief Minister said that the entire world has praised the development in Gujarat but all the Congress believes in is abusing him everyday. Commenting on the Congress culture, Shri Modi stated that even if the Congress built a hand pump in a village, they would use it for the next 4 elections! He shared that when the Congress was in power the power subsidy to Gujarat was worth Rs. 300 crore whereas now under the BJP Government that has gone up to Rs. 3000 crore.
Shri Modi came down heavily on the Congress’ argument that the development in Gujarat is due to the money from Delhi. He affirmed that Mrs. Sonia Gandhi and Dr. Manmohan Singh are coming to Gujarat and they will say that the development in Gujarat is due to money from Delhi. But, he asked them to also say what is the contribution of Gujarat to the treasury of Delhi. “Every year the people of Gujarat contribute Rs. 60,000 crore to Delhi & you give a few thousand crores and then say ‘Delhi is sending!’” he affirmed.Recalling former PM Rajiv Gandhi’s statement that out of a Rupee only 15p reaches the villages, Shri Modi questioned which was the Hand that was taking away the rest of the amount?
He made a strong appeal to the people to make the BJP victorious in the upcoming elections and called for the anti-Gujarat Congress to be uprooted from the state. He stated that in the last 11 years he has not taken a single day of rest and has devoted every moment of his life to the service of the people of Gujarat. Shri Modi also pointed that he has come to a land where he has grown up, he is familiar with the problems the people here faced and has got the opportunity to serve the people. Bravingthe scorching heat a large number of people gathered at both the venues to hear Shri Modi and extend solidarity with the BJP.
