Addressing the people of Mizoram via video conference, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said, “Before 2014, people perceived the northeastern states, such as Mizoram, as distant from Delhi both physically and psychologically. The BJP recognized this sense of distance and, after coming into power as part of the NDA government in 2014, made it a priority to bridge this gap by addressing the aspirations and needs of the northeastern states.”

“In the last nine years, I have had the privilege of visiting the Northeastern states 60 times. Apart from this, large-scale development and connectivity works also reduced the physical distance. BJP has brought the country's capital, Delhi, to the doorstep of the people of the North-East. That means Delhi is no longer far; Delhi is at your doorstep,” he further added.

Highlighting the infrastructural development in the region, PM Modi stated, “During one of my earlier visits to Mizoram, I had promised to work for ‘Transformation by Transportation’. Since then, a revolution has happened across sectors due to the work of the BJP-led Government. In railways, we did something that had not been done in 7 decades of independence. When it comes to roadways, our work across the Northeast is well known. Till 2013-14, the total length of National Highways in the Northeast was 8,500 kilometres. We almost doubled it to 15,700 kilometres in 2022-23.”

PM Modi discussed the impact of various developmental initiatives in Mizoram. He mentioned the Ayushman Bharat scheme, which provides free healthcare to the poor, benefiting around 4.5 lakh Mizoram residents across 100 hospitals. Additionally, he talked about the support for farmers through schemes like PM Kisan Samman Nidhi, with approximately 1,75,000 Mizoram farmers receiving financial assistance annually. “Be it crop insurance, irrigation, natural farming or taking their products to the markets, BJP has worked in every direction to empower the farmers,” he said.

The PM announced, “You know that PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana was started during the Corona pandemic. Under this scheme, free ration has been ensured to 80 crore poor citizens of the country for the last three years. Now our Government has decided that the scheme of free ration to the poor will be extended for the next five years. No poor should remain hungry; every poor should get free ration; this is Modi's guarantee.”

Thanking the people of Mizoram for their work in Swachh Bharat Mission, PM Modi said, “It is you who made Mizoram the state with 100 Percent functional public toilets. It is you who is building a Clean and Green Mizoram.”

Regarding the sports talent and infrastructure, PM Modi remarked, “The youth of India are flying the flag of India higher and higher in every global sports tournament. There is great passion for sports in the Northeast. This region, including Mizoram, has played a key role in India’s rise. We are committed to increasing the overall sports infrastructure. We are focusing on creating sports academies and scholarships for young athletes in the future.”

Spiritual Wisdom Meets National Progress: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's Address at Viksit Bharat Ambassador Mega Event
April 15, 2024

An Evening of Music and Meditation, organised as part of the Viksit Bharat Ambassador program, commenced on Sunday, 14th April, at the Indira Gandhi Stadium in Delhi. This mega event attracted over 30,000 attendees from various walks of life, including Art of Living disciples, educators, professionals, and esteemed guests from political and corporate spheres. The gathering witnessed a blend of spiritual enlightenment, cultural celebration, and discussion on a progressive discourse for the nation, graced by the presence of revered spiritual leader Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

The evening's Chief Guest, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, illuminated the gathering with his wisdom and insights. Notable personalities, including Lok Sabha Delhi BJP Candidates, BJP Delhi leadership, Secretaries of important ministries, and senior corporate professionals, attended the event too.

In his address, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar commended India's strides on both the economic and spiritual fronts, emphasising the admiration garnered from global powers. He particularly praised the initiatives of the Narendra Modi government, including Direct Benefit Transfer and fostering a conducive environment for start-up growth. He added that the direct transfer of funds into people's accounts and the flourishing ecosystem for entrepreneurs symbolise India's rising prominence on the world stage.

"Today, money is being transferred into people's accounts directly. Also, it's startling to see the growth of so many start-ups; the world is looking up to India with great hope and excitement," the spiritual leader said.

"India's start-up growth is startling. The surge of entrepreneurs and start-ups has caught the world's eye, prompting a collective 'Wow, India!'" he added.

Central to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's message was the importance of embracing diversity and celebrating India's rich cultural heritage. He emphasised the inclusive nature of Sanatan Dharma, which encompasses all religions without harbouring ill intentions towards others. Stressing the need to shed the shackles of a slavery mindset, he urged citizens to take pride in their roots and religious identities.

Drawing parallels between India's spiritual landmarks and those of other religions, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar highlighted Kashi Vishwanath's significance as a demonstration of India's beliefs. He hailed the construction of the grand Vishwanath Dham as a pivotal step towards realising Viksit Bharat's vision.

"The resurgence of Kashi Vishwanath Temple signals the dawn of a developed India. Despite taking notice from leaders like Indira Gandhi and concerns voiced by Mahatma Gandhi, the temple grappled with infrastructure challenges for seven decades. Today, under PM Modi's leadership, the majestic Vishwanath Dham stands tall, in full glory," he said.

The spiritual leader also noted a positive shift in people's behaviour, with an increasing pride in their religious and cultural identities.

"A cultural renaissance is underway in India, with people openly embracing their religious and cultural roots, celebrating their identities with pride and confidence," he said.

"This Ram Navami marks a historic milestone with the completion of the Ram Janmabhoomi temple after 500 years of wait. PM Narendra Modi's personal involvement and attention to detail, amid his other duties, deserve recognition. Today, India's commitment to both culture and science remains unwavering," he added.

"Tamil culture, despite its immense richness, remained undiscovered by many in our nation. Prime Minister Modi's recent emphasis on showcasing Tamil culture is a first. Surprisingly, Tamil is the national language in four countries, and Japanese has 70% Tamil influence. Regrettably, we've hesitated to embrace such a remarkable heritage," he said.

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar lauded Prime Minister Modi's leadership, particularly during global unrest, showcasing India's strength in diplomatic endeavours. He also commended PM Modi's steadfast leadership amidst global challenges, particularly in navigating the Ukraine Crisis. He highlighted India's rising global prominence as 'Vishwaguru Bharat', emphasising the prioritisation of Indian interests.

"PM Modi's mediation efforts in the Ukraine-Russia standoff underscore India's robust global diplomacy. Amid pressures to take sides, India maintained a steadfast stance, offering hope when the world was on the brink of war. India's resilience prevented potential economic setbacks faced by other countries," he said.

"Under PM Modi's leadership, India's global standing has risen significantly. We have a leader who values our cultural legacy, understands its people, and engages with the global community. The vision of Ram Rajya, ensuring fundamentals for all, is becoming a reality," he added.

At the heart of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's message was a call for self-reliance and dignity. He cautioned against dependency on freebies and emphasised the importance of self-respect and integrity in personal and national development.

"Self-respecting Indians value self-sufficiency; even modest earners prioritise paying for their children's education. Let's guide those tempted by freebies towards self-reliance and positivity," he said.

Gurudev emphasised the power of inclusive development, epitomised by the 'Sabka Saath' principle, which drives India's transformative journey. He stressed the collective responsibility of citizens in shaping the nation's future.

Drawing attention to societal challenges, he also advocated for ending alcohol and substance abuse. He also underscored the significance of active participation in the electoral process, stating how each vote contributes to the collective voice shaping the nation's destiny.

"The New Education Policy heralds a departure from colonial legacies, offering ample opportunities for youth to thrive. India's march towards becoming a 'Viksit Bharat', unstoppable," he added.

The event also highlighted the Viksit Bharat Ambassador program's mission to foster positivity and happiness, aligning with the Art of Living's principles. Through active citizen participation, the program seeks to realise PM Modi's ambitious goal of making India a fully developed nation by 2047.

The Viksit Bharat Ambassador Program aims to mobilise every citizen towards the collective goal of making India a fully developed nation by 2047, as envisioned by Prime Minister Modi. Through initiatives like this, ordinary citizens are empowered to contribute meaningfully to nation-building. As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar eloquently stated, India's trajectory towards becoming a global superpower is inevitable.
