Prime Minister Narendra Modi today, virtually addressed the Council of Mayors and Deputy Mayors of BJP in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. PM Modi started his address by highlighting the journey of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, from working for the city of Ahmedabad through the municipality to becoming the Deputy Prime Minister.

PM Modi talked about how Gujarat has been innovating for years in transportation; PM Modi said, “Many years back, the innovative rickshaw service, G-autos, was started in Gujarat. This innovation was done by none other than our team of auto drivers.” PM Modi further encouraged the mayors and deputy mayors to learn from each other and work towards development through forward thinking.

PM Modi talked about making unprecedented investments in the urban infrastructure of India, PM Modi said, “Till 2014, the metro network in our country was less than two hundred and fifty kms. Today the metro network in the country is more than 775 kms”. He also encouraged mayors to reach out to the street vendors about PM Svanidhi. “Today, for the first time, these people have been linked to the banking system through PM Svanidhi Yojana. Under this, about 35 lakh beneficiaries across the country have got the facility of loan from the bank,” he said.

PM Modi further added that it is his endeavour that our cities also become the centre of a holistic lifestyle, PM Modi said, “Today smart facilities are being built in over a hundred cities. These are the cities that are going to be the lighthouses of urban planning in the future.”

PM Modi highlighted the stark difference between earlier governments and the present regime under his leadership in creating housing for the urban poor, he said, “About 1.25 crore houses have been sanctioned across the country under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana - Urban. Before 2014, there was a provision of Rs 20 thousand crores for the houses of the urban poor but in the last 8 years, a provision of more than Rs 2 lakh crores has been made for it. This shows our commitment to the urban poor.”

Talking about how development in urban areas should not be centric over elections but should focus on the betterment of cities regardless of a looming electoral loss, PM Modi gave an example and said, “I put an example of this in front of you from Gujarat itself. In the year 2005, rules and regulations were made to remove urban encroachments…Even then many people felt that this would harm the elections…You will be surprised that people themselves joined this campaign, and started removing their encroachments themselves. When the public sees honesty and implementation is seen without discrimination, then people themselves come forward and support the policies.”

PM Modi iterated that apart from the development and planning of tier-1 cities and satellite towns, we should also focus on developing the tier-2 & 3 cities as well. He further encouraged to use the existing and new systems for multiple utilities. PM Modi said, “The work of CCTV cameras is not only crime detection, but they help in many such tasks, monitoring related to traffic, transport, cleanliness.”

PM Modi also linked the beautification of cities to increased tourism in the country, he said, “Sabarmati Riverfront and Kankaria Lake in Ahmedabad are the best examples of how tourism increases with the beautification of cities, changes in city life. Ahmedabad has now also got the status of World Heritage City.”

PM Modi finally addressed and reiterated how India adopted cleanliness as a way of life from Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, PM Modi said, “Due to the continuous efforts of the last 8 years, unprecedented public awareness has also come about cleanliness. The processing of solid waste has increased from 18 per cent to about 75 per cent as compared to before 2014.” PM Modi further exemplified cities like Surat and Indore, where the waste generated from the cities is becoming a source of income for the urban bodies and urged people to take inspiration from it.

Viksit Bharat Ambassador Meet-Up in Pune: Volunteers Assemble To Pledge Towards Building a Developed India
February 28, 2024

Volunteers in Pune responded to PM Narendra Modi's call to become "Viksit Bharat Ambassadors" by hosting a national meet-up on February 28th at the Sumant Moolgaokar Auditorium, MCCIA. The objective of this meet-up was to gather local support for the Viksit Bharat Ambassador movement, which aims to make a developed India (Viksit Bharat) a reality by 2047.

The event was attended by Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Hon'ble Minister of State for IT, Skilling and Entrepreneurship. Distinguished entrepreneurs, institution owners, corporates, and professionals from Pune were also present.

"In 2014, the economy that was left behind was one of the fragile five. 16 quarters of runaway inflations, 18 quarters of declining growth, a financial sector that had been shattered beyond bits, and an overall image of dysfunctional governance that was causing investors to pause and re-look at India. That was from 2004-14, which we refer to as a lost decade. From 2014-19, PM Modi rebuilt the economy and financial sector... The second term was about building the New India..." said Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar at the 'Viksit Bharat Ambassador Meet'.

The Vision of Viksit Bharat: 140 crore dreams, 1 purpose

The Viksit Bharat Ambassador movement aims to encourage citizens to take responsibility for contributing to the development of India. To achieve this goal, VBA meet-ups and events are being organized in various parts of the country.
