Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with Bhartiya Janta Party Booth Karyakartas from five Lok Sabha seats, Hoshangabad, Chatra, Pali, Ghazipur and Mumbai (North).

Answering a question raised by a party Karyakarta from Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh about the fake claims and lies propagated by Congress, Prime Minister Modi said that the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh led by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has done so much work all these years that the Congress is left with no issues to criticize our government. This is why they have resorted to mischievous tactics like propagating lies. Prime Minister Modi also listed out several initiatives of the state government to ensure overall development across society and described how the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh had transformed it from a ‘BIMARU’ state to a ‘BEMISAAL’ state.

Moving ahead to address party Karyakartas from Chatra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted how the BJP government in Jharkhand restarted long-pending infrastructure and welfare projects in the state.

Prime Minister Modi also mentioned how the ‘Statue of Unity’ will spread Sardar Patel’s vision and his contribution to India’s unity to the future generations of our country. PM Modi vehemently criticized the shallowness and disrespect demonstrated by Opposition parties about the ‘State of Unity’ and said how such actions showed the Congress’ utter ignorance about the contribution of our freedom fighters. He recalled a long list of freedom fighters like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Acharya Kriplani and Dr BR Ambedkar, who were neglected and disrespected by the Congress and its allies.

Addressing a question asked by a booth Karyakarta from North Mumbai, PM Modi listed out various transformative schemes of the Central government such as Start Up India, Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao, Surakshit Matritva Abhiyan and the recently launched Ayushman Bharat and described the positive impacts that these schemes have made on the lives of millions of ordinary Indians by empowering them at various levels. He further elaborated saying all these achievements were less the achievements of the government and more the achievements of the 130 crore people of India and their aspirations.

In his video interaction with party workers from Pali, Rajasthan, Prime Minister Modi described several achievements that India has achieved for the first time during his government. Of these, the significant ones include 5 lakh villages of India declaring themselves Open Defecation-Free (ODF), No Indian village is without electricity, India launched 104 satellites in outer space in one go and several other instances that never happened before in India.

The interaction which was organized through video conferencing facility on the NaMo App, concluded at Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh where a party Karyakarta sought the Prime Minister’s guidance on the future course of Bhartiya Janta Party for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections. To this, PM Modi replied that the BJP had achieved the most through the efforts of its hard working and devoted Karyakartas and its strong organization.

Remembering Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji, PM Narendra Modi said that the BJP, which had only two seats in 1984, reached a milestone of 282 seats in 2014. For this, he credited the hardworking and devoted BJP Karyakartas across the country.

PM Modi ended his interaction by greeting everyone for the upcoming festival of Vijay Dashami.
