On one side there is Congress and BRS and on the other side is BJP. They have the mentality to rule the people while BJP is dedicated to serving the people: PM Modi
Only BJP can guarantee social justice to the people of Telangana. Only BJP can take Telangana on the golden path of development: PM Modi in Secunderabad
The BJP made the laws, about the atrocities on SC and ST, stricter. We ensured that the poor got a bank account, gas connection, toilet, homes: PM Modi
BRS government allied with Delhi's AAP govt in corruption. They are involved in the Liquor Scam. They cooperate not in work but in corruption: PM Modi

Election fervour intensified in Telangana as Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the huge crowd in Secunderabad today ahead of the state assembly election. At the event, PM Modi said, “After independence, you have seen many governments in the country. Our government is such that its top priority is the welfare of the poor and the underprivileged have to be given priority. The mantra on which BJP works is ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas aur Sabka Prayas’. We are committed to ensuring social justice.”

PM Modi criticized the Telangana government, particularly expressing betrayal towards the Madiga community. He said that when Telangana was formed after many sacrifices, BRS leaders forgot the people of the state and went to thank Congress leaders first. “During the days of the movement, you were promised that only a Dalit would be made the first CM of Telangana. But after the creation of the state, KCR took over the CM’s chair, crushing every Dalit aspiration,” he added.

Launching a scathing attack on the BRS, Prime Minister Modi stated that BRS had also promised to give land to Dalits. He said, “Did the BRS fulfil this promise? BRS had talked about giving you thousands of crores of rupees through Dalit Bandhu Scheme. Did you benefit from it? The truth is that this scheme has become the scheme of relatives of BRS MLAs. The BRS government had also promised to waive off the loans of farmers. But farmers did not get the benefit of this either. The government here has given you Irrigation Scams instead of Irrigation Schemes.

In Secunderabad, PM Modi took aim at both BRS and Congress and asked the people to be cautious of both the parties. He said, “BRS is anti-Dalit and Congress is no less than that. While BRS insulted Baba Saheb Ambedkar by demanding a new Constitution, the history of Congress is also similar. Congress opposed Baba Saheb and did not allow him to win the elections twice. Congress did not allow Baba Saheb’s photo to be installed in the Central Hall of the old Parliament House for decades. Because of Congress, Baba Saheb was not even given Bharat Ratna for decades.”

PM Modi went all guns blazing against the I.N.D.I. Alliance, he criticized the Congress-led alliance, particularly highlighting the Chief Minister of Bihar’s involvement in what he termed as casteist politics. He reminisced, “I remember the CM of Bihar continuously insulted my close friend and Dalit leader Ram Vilas Paswan ji. Even when it came to the question of Rajya Sabha seat for Ram Vilas Paswan, he was reluctant to support him.”

The Prime Minister recounted another instance where Bihar CM Nitish Kumar insulted another Dalit leader, the former CM of Bihar, Jitan Ram Manjhi. The recent incident involved the alleged humiliation of Jitan Ram Manjhi in the Bihar Assembly, suggesting a pattern of arrogance and disrespect towards Dalits, which PM Modi asserted as the identity of Congress and its allies.

Deciphering the mutual understanding between BRS and Congress, Prime Minister Modi asserted that there is little to differentiate between the two when it comes to corruption. The PM stated, “Generally in India, different states cooperate with other states for development schemes. But the BRS government, in collaboration with Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party, has committed a liquor scam worth thousands of crores of rupees. These people cooperate in corruption, not in work.”

“The BRS party of Telangana indulges in blatant corruption in collaboration with the Aam Aadmi Party, a staunch ally of the Congress in Delhi. Then, the same BRS is also doing the drama of fighting against Congress. The people of Telangana must be very careful of this duplicity,” the PM added.

Addressing the massive crowd, the PM iterated, “Congress and BRS are together. They play their games behind the curtains. On one side is Congress and BRS, and on the other is BJP. They have the mentality to rule the people while BJP is dedicated to serving the people.”

Emphasizing the BJP government’s commitment to the welfare of poor, the PM announced the extension of the PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana for the next five years. PM Modi said, “Keeping in mind the interest of the farmers of Telangana, the Central Government is continuously increasing the government procurement of paddy. In the past years, paddy worth more than Rs 1,30,000 crore has been purchased here. The central government also takes boiled rice from farmers.”

“Now our government has decided that in this Kharif season, an additional 20 lakh metric tonnes of boiled rice will be purchased from the farmers of Telangana. With this, our farmers will get more benefits of MSP,” he further added.

Singling out the injustice done to the Madiga community in Telangana, PM Modi said, “We are committed to ending this injustice as soon as possible. I know that there are many people here who have struggled for their rights for a long time. It is our promise that we will soon form a committee, which will create a new path for your empowerment.”

Wrapping up his remarks, PM Modi asserted, “Only BJP can guarantee social justice to the people of Telangana. Only BJP can take Telangana on the golden path of development. I am confident that BJP and your support will play an important role in the formation of double engine government in Telangana .”

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi addressed the News 9 Global Summit in New Delhi today. The theme of the Summit is ‘India: Poised for the Big Leap’.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said TV 9’s reporting team represents the diversity of India. Their multi-language news platforms made TV 9 a representative of India's vibrant democracy, the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister threw light on the theme of the Summit - ‘India: Poised for the Big Leap’, and underlined that a big leap can be taken only when one is filled with passion and enthusiasm. He said that the theme highlights India’s self-confidence and aspirations owing to the creation of a launchpad of 10 years. In these 10 years, the Prime Minister said, the mindset, self-confidence and good governance have been the major factors of transformation.

The Prime Minister underlined the centrality of the commission citizen in the destiny of India. He emphasized that a mindset of defeat can not lead to victory, in this light, he said that the change in mindset and leap that India has taken is incredible. PM Modi recalled the negative view exposed by the leadership of the past and the overhang of corruption, scams, policy paralysis and dynasty politics had shook the foundation of the nation. The Prime Minister mentioned the turnaround and India entering into the top 5 economies of the world. “India of 21st century India does not think small. Whatever we do, we do best and biggest. World is amazed and sees the benefit of moving with India”, he said.

Highlighting the achievements of the last 10 years compared to the ten years before 2014, the Prime Minister mentioned the record increase in FDI from 300 billion US dollars to 640 billion US dollars, India’s digital revolution, trust in India’s Covid vaccine and the growing number of taxpayers in the country which symbolizes the increasing trust of the people in the government. Speaking about mutual fund investments in the country, the Prime Minister informed that people had invested Rs 9 lakh crore in 2014 while 2024 has seen a meteoric rise to Rs 52 lakh crores. “This proves to the citizens that the nation is moving forward with strength”, PM Modi continued, “The level of trust toward self and the government is equal.”

The Prime Minister said that the government's work culture and governance are the cause of this turn-around. “Government offices are no longer a problem but are becoming allies of the countrymen”, he said.

The Prime Minister said that for this leap, a change of gear was needed. He gave examples of long pending projects such as Saryu Canal Project in Uttar Pradesh, Sardar Sarovar Yojana, and Krishna Koena Pariyojana of Maharashtra which were lying pending for decades and were completed by the government. The Prime Minister drew attention to the Atal Tunnel whose foundation stone was laid in 2002 but remained incomplete till 2014, and it was the present government that accomplished the work with its inauguration in 2020. He also gave the example of Bogibeel Bridge in Assam, commissioned in 1998 but finally completed 20 years later in 2018, and Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor commissioned in 2008 but completed 15 years later in 2023. “Hundreds of such pending projects were completed after the present government came to power in 2014”, he added. The Prime Minister also explained the impact of regular monitoring of the big projects under PRAGATI and informed that in the last 10 years projects worth 17 lakh crore have been reviewed under the mechanism. The Prime Minister gave examples of a few projects that were completed very quickly such as Atal Setu, Parliament Building, Jammu AIIMS, Rajkot AIIMs, IIM Sambalpur, New terminal of Trichy Airport, IIT Bhilai, Goa Airport, undersea cable up to Lakshadweep, Banas Dairy at Varanasi, Dwarka Sudarshan Setu. Foundation stones of all these projects were laid by the Prime Minister and he dedicated them to the nation also. “When there is willpower and respect for the taxpayers' money, only then the nation moves forward and gets ready for a big leap”, he added.

The Prime Minister illustrated the scale by listing the activities of just one week. He mentioned a massive educational push from Jammu with dozens of higher education institutes like IIT, IIMs and IIIT on 20th February, on 24 th February he dedicated 5 AIIMs from Rajkot, and more than 2000 projects including revamping more than 500 Amrit Stations was done this morning. This streak will continue during his visit to three states in the coming two days, he informed. “We lagged in the first, second and third revolutions, now we have to lead the world in the fourth revolution”, the Prime Minister said.

He continued by furnishing the details of the nation's progress. He gave figures like 2 new colleges daily, a new university every week, 55 patents and 600 trademarks every day, 1.5 lakh Mudra loans daily, 37 startups daily, daily UPI transaction of 16 thousand crore rupees, 3 new Jan Aushadhi Kendras per day, construction of 14 KM road everyday, 50 thousand LPG connections everyday, one tap connection every second and 75 thousand people came out of poverty everyday.

Referring to a recent report on the consumption pattern of the country, the Prime Minister highlighted the fact that poverty has reached its lowest level till date into single digit. As per data, he said that consumption has increased by 2.5 times as compared to a decade ago as people's capacity to spend on different goods and services has increased. “In the last 10 years, consumption in villages has increased at a much faster rate than that in cities. This means that the economic power of the village people is increasing, they are having more money to spend”, he said.

The Prime Minister said that the government has developed infrastructure keeping rural needs in mind resulting in better connectivity, new employment opportunities and income for women. This strengthened rural India, he said. “For the first time in India, food expenditure has become less than 50 per cent of the total expenditure. That is, the family which earlier used to spend all its energy in procuring food, today its members are able to spend money on other things”, the Prime Minister added.

Pointing out the trend of vote bank politics adopted by the previous government, the Prime Minister underscored that India has broken out of the scarcity mindset in the last 10 years by putting an end to corruption and ensuring that the benefits of development are distributed equally. “We believe in governance of saturation instead of politics of scarcity”, PM Modi emphasized, “We have chosen the path of santushti (contentment) of the people instead of tushtikaran.” This, the Prime Minister said, has been the mantra of the government for the past decade. “This is Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas”, the Prime Minister said, elaborating that the government has transformed vote bank politics into politics of performance. Highlighting the Modi Ki Guarantee Vehicle, the Prime Minister said that the government of today is going door-to-door and providing facilities to the beneficiaries. “When saturation becomes a mission, there is no scope for any kind of discrimination”, PM Modi exclaimed.

“Our government is moving forward keeping the principle of Nation First paramount”, the Prime Minister remarked, as he mentioned the critical decisions taken by the government to resolve old challenges. He touched upon the abrogation of Article 370, construction of the Ram Mandir, ending of triple talaq, Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam, One Rank One Pension, and creation of the post of Chief of Defense Staff. He underlined that the government completed all such incomplete tasks with the thinking of Nation First.

The Prime Minister stressed the need to prepare the India of the 21st century and threw light on the rapidly progressing plans. “From space to semiconductor, digital to drones, AI to clean energy, 5G to Fintech, India has today reached the forefront of the world”, he said. He highlighted India’s growing prowess as one of the biggest forces in digital payments in the global world, the fastest-growing country in Fintech Adoption Rate, the first country to land a rover on the south pole of the Moon, among the leading countries in the world in Solar Installed Capacity, leaving Europe behind in the expansion of 5G network, rapid progress in the semiconductor sector and rapid developments on future fuels like green hydrogen.

Concluding the address, the Prime Minister said, “Today India is working hard towards its bright future. India is futuristic. Today everyone says – India is the future.” He also drew attention to the importance of the next 5 years. He reaffirmed the belief to take India's potential to new heights in the third term and wished that the coming 5 years be years of progress and praise for India’s journey to Viksit Bharat.
