We have spent the last five years in infusing vigour and strength in our armed forces and developing a coherent policy on national security that ensures greater security for all Indians: PM Modi
We conducted surgical strikes and air strikes against Pakistan-based terrorists to send our message to the world that India is well capable of defending itself: PM Modi in Haryana
The BJP government in Haryana has been continuously carrying out development and providing a clean and transparent government for every community in the state: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed two large public meetings in Fatehabad and Kurukshetra in Haryana today. Addressing the jam-packed rallies, PM Modi lashed out the national security policy of the Congress party saying it was too soft on addressing national security issues thereby ‘betraying’ the soldiers of India. 

Elaborating the BJP government’s approach to national security, PM Modi said, “No country can emerge as a superpower in the absence of a strong national security policy and hence we have spent the last five years in infusing vigour and strength in our armed forces and developing a coherent policy on national security that ensures greater security for all Indians while allowing no tolerance for terrorists and their sympathizers. This is why we conducted surgical strikes and air strikes against Pakistan-based terrorists to send our message to the world that India is well capable of defending itself.” 

PM Modi also indirectly attacked the former Haryana government led by Congress CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda for fraudulent land deals during their term saying, “The Congress has done ‘Bhrashtachaar ki Kheti’ and the best proof for this can be found from Haryana itself where the former CM of Haryana and the remote-controlled government in Delhi bought farmers’ land at throwaway prices and were involved in huge corruption scams. In contrast, the BJP government led by CM Manohar Lal Khattar has been continuously carrying out development in Haryana for every community while providing a clean and transparent government to people.” 

Enlisting the major strides taken by the BJP government in improving people’s lives since 2014, PM Modi said, “From constructing rural roads to satellites and from building highways to I-ways, our government has achieved historic milestones in enhancing the quality of life for every Indian.” He also took digs at the ‘Premvarsha’ politics of Congress and said, “Their actions totally contradict their words, on one hand they talk of ‘Premvarsha’ (politics of love and compassion’ while on the other hand, they rain down incessant abuses on me and my humble background, calling me names like ‘Neech,’ ‘mentally retarded,’ ‘Most stupid PM,’ ‘Maut ka Saudagar’ and even ‘Hitler.’ Is this the politics of love that Congress party espouses against its opponents? The people of this country remember every abuse hurled at Modi and will give a befitting response to Congress ‘Namdars’ on 23rd May.”

Prime Minister chairs first meeting of National Ganga Council

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi chaired the first meeting of the National Ganga Council in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh today.

The Council has been given overall responsibility for superintendence of pollution prevention and rejuvenation of River Ganga Basin, including Ganga and its tributaries. The first meeting of the Council was aimed at reinforcing the importance of a ‘Ganga-centric’ approach in all departments of the concerned states as well as relevant Central Ministries.

Today’s meeting was attended by Union Ministers for Jal Shakti, Environment, Agriculture and Rural Development, Health, Urban Affairs, Power, Tourism, Shipping and Chief Ministers of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Vice Chairman Niti Aayog and other senior officials. The state of West Bengal was not present in the meeting and Jharkhand did not participate because of the ongoing elections and the Model Code of Conduct being in force.

Prime Minister, while reviewing the progress of work done and deliberating on various aspects of cleaning river Ganga with a focus on ‘swachhta’, ‘aviralta’ and ‘nirmalta’. He observed that Maa Ganga is the holiest river on the sub-continent and its rejuvenation should embody a shining example of cooperative federalism. Prime Minister said that rejuvenation of Ganga has been a long pending challenge for the country. He noted that a lot had been accomplished since the Government took up ‘Namami Gange’ in 2014 as a comprehensive initiative integrating various government efforts and activities with the aim of pollution abatement, conservation and rejuvenation of Ganga, notable achievements being zero waste creation by paper mills and reduction in pollution from tanneries; but much more needs to be done.

For the first time, the Central Government had made commitment of Rs. 20,000 crores for the period 2015-20 to the five states through which Ganga passes, to ensure adequate as well as uninterrupted water flows in the river. Rs. 7700 crores have already been spent so far, prominently for construction of new sewage treatment plants.

Prime Minister emphasized that an improvement framework for Nirmal Ganga would require fullest cooperation from the public at large and greater awareness through dissemination of best practices from cities situated along the banks of national rivers. Efficiency of District Ganga Committees should be improved in all districts, in order to provide a effective framework for expeditious implementation of plans.

The Government has set up the Clean Ganga Fund (CGF) to facilitate contributions from individuals, NRIs, corporate entities for funding Ganga rejuvenation projects. Hon’ble PM has personally donated Rs. 16.53 crores to CGF, from the amount realized from auction of the gifts he received since 2014 and the prize money of the Seoul Peace prize.

Prime Minister urged for a holistic thinking process where ‘Namami Gange’ evolves to ‘Arth Ganga’ or a sustainable development model with a focus on economic activities related to Ganga. As part of this process, farmers should be encouraged to engage in sustainable agriculture practices, including zero budget farming, planting of fruit trees and building plant nurseries on the banks of Ganga. Priority could be given to women Self Help Groups and ex-servicemen organizations for these programs. Such practices, along with creation of infrastructure for water sports and development of camp sites, cycling and walking tracks etc , would help to tap the ‘hybrid’ tourism potential of the river basin area- for purposes of religious as well as adventure tourism. The income generated from encouraging eco-tourism and Ganga wildlife conservation and cruise tourism etc. would help to generate sustainable income streams for cleaning of Ganga.

For monitoring the work progress and activities from various schemes and initiatives under Namami Gange and Arth Ganga, PM also gave directions for the setting up of a Digital Dashboard where data from villages and urban bodies should be monitored on a daily basis by Niti Ayog and Ministry of Jal Shakti. Prime Minister also said that like aspirational districts, all districts bordering Ganga should be made a focus area for monitoring efforts under Namami Gange.

Prior to the meeting, Prime Minister paid floral tributes to legendary freedom fighter Chandrashekhar Azad and viewed an exhibition on ‘Namami Gange’ interventions and projects at the Chandrashekhar Azad Agriculture University. Later in the day, Prime Minister visited Atal Ghat and also inspected the successfully completed work of cleaning at Sisamau Nala.
