NDA Government at Centre is dedicated to overall development of the country: Prime Minister

PM Narendra Modi today addressed a public meeting in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. Beginning his address, the PM mentioned about the rail accident in Kanpur and said that it was unfortunate. “Relief work is going on in full swing. Centre will also investigate the matter. My thoughts are with the bereaved families. I wish those injured a speedy recovery”, he added.

PM Modi spoke about various development initiatives launched today. Shri Modi said that NDA Government has initiated several steps for the welfare of people across the country. He said that the Centre is committed to provide homes to people by the time India celebrates 75th year of independence. Shri Modi said, “We want every Indian to have a house by 2022 when India celebrates 75 years since attaining freedom. When we are undertaking this initiative to build houses, it also means so many people get employment.”

PM Modi also unveiled railway projects that would boost railway infrastructure and employment.

Prime Minister Modi highlighted how Ujjwala Yojana is benefitting people in rural areas by making those areas smoke-free. He also took note of the progress made in rural electrification. “Years after Independence so many villages lack access to electricity. We are working to change that”, he added.

Speaking about demonetization of high value currency notes, PM Narendra Modi said that the decision taken by the Government on currency notes is in the interest of the poor and the middle class. He said that the move would benefit the honest citizens of the country. Shri Modi said, “This decision on currency notes was not taken to trouble anyone. This decision was taken for safeguarding the honest people’s interest. It was taken to secure the future of our youth. But a few people whose money is stuck in chit fund scams and those supporting them are feeling the heat.”

Shri Narendra Modi remarked that five hundred and thousand rupee notes ceasing to be legal tender has adversely affected those in fake currency rackets and narcotics. “Withdrawal of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes have choked funding of terror groups”, he added further. PM Modi urged citizens to cooperate and follow the guidelines set by the banks. Shri Modi said that NDA Government at Centre is dedicated to overall development of the country.

Several party karyakartas and Union Ministers were present during the public meeting.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, will pay a State Visit to Republic of Rwanda (23-24 July), Republic of Uganda (24-25 July) and Republic of South Africa (25-27 July). This will be the first visit by an Indian Prime Minister to Rwanda and the first visit by our Prime Minister to Uganda in over 20 years. The visit to South Africa is in the context of BRICS Summit.

Prime Minister’s official engagement in Rwanda and Uganda include bilateral meetings with the Presidents, delegation level talks and meetings with the business and the Indian communities. In Rwanda, Prime Minister will visit the Genocide Memorial and participate in an event on "Girinka” (one cow per family), a national social protection scheme of Rwanda personally initiated by President Paul Kagame. In Uganda, Prime Minister will deliver a Keynote address at the Parliament of Uganda – the first Indian Prime Minister to address the Ugandan Parliament.

In South Africa, the Prime Minister will have bilateral meeting with the South African President and will attend the BRICS Summit and other BRICS related meetings. Bilateral meetings with participating countries on the sidelines of BRICS meetings are also planned.

India shares close, warm and friendly relations with Africa which are cemented by robust development partnership and a large presence of the Indian Diaspora. A number of agreements and MoUs in the areas of Defence, trade, culture, Agriculture and Dairy cooperation are scheduled to be signed during the visit.

Over the last few years, there has been a significant intensification of our engagement in various fields with African countries and there have been as many as 23 outgoing visits to Africa at the level of President, Vice President and Prime Minister in the last four years. Africa has been the top priority of India’s Foreign Policy. The visit of Prime Minister to Rwanda, Uganda and South Africa will further strengthen our relations with the African continent.
