NDA’s priority is the welfare of the small farmers: PM Modi in Tamil Nadu

In his first rally in the state of Tamil Nadu before assembly elections, PM Modi addressed a huge gathering in Dharapuram. “India takes great pride in the culture of Tamil Nadu. One of the happiest moments of my life was when I got a chance to speak a few words in the oldest language in the world, Tamil, at the United Nations,” he said.

Attacking the DMK and Congress, PM Modi said, “On one hand, NDA has our development agenda. On the other hand, the Congress and DMK have their own dynasty agenda. The speeches of their leaders have nothing positive to offer. They hardly talk about their own vision or work. All they do is demean others and spread lies.”

Taking a jibe at the UPA’s scam, the Prime Minister remarked, “These days Congress and DMK have launched their outdated 2-G missile. This 2-G missile has one clear target- the women of Tamil Nadu.
A few days back, this Missile was launched by UPA with a clear order- to attack the Nari Shakti of Tamil Nadu.”

“Inspired by the ideals of MGR and Amma Jayalalithaa Ji, we want to empower the farmers, poor, youngsters and women of Tamil Nadu. We want to boost connectivity and create opportunities here. A vote for NDA is a vote to solve long standing issues. A prime example is the way the decades old demand of the Devendra Kula Vellalar community was solved by our alliance,” he said while addressing the rally in Tamil Nadu.

Slamming DMK leader’s inappropriate remarks on women, PM Modi remarked, “Sadly, to insult women is a part of the Congress-DMK culture. A few days back, one of the MLA candidates of DMK Mister Dindigul Leoni made horrible remarks on women. DMK has done nothing to stop him. The young crown prince of DMK, who has sidelined many senior DMK leaders, he too made horrible remarks. DMK has done nothing to stop him.”

The Prime Minister emphasized on 25th March 1989 incidence, he said, “In the Assembly of Tamil Nadu, how did DMK leaders treat Amma Jayalalithaa Ji? DMK and Congress will not guarantee women empowerment. In their rule, crimes against women are up. We in the NDA are inspired by the thoughts and ideals of the great Andal and Avvaiyar. We believe that the progress of society is not complete without empowerment of women. That is why, all our schemes are aimed at strengthening our Nari Shakti.”

“Yesterday, an elderly lady Shova Majumdar lost her life in West Bengal. We saw with horror how goons belonging to TMC brutally attacked her just because her ideology was different. This has been in news for a long time. Did Congress show any empathy? Did DMK and Left condemn it,” he added.

Also, PM Modi talked about NDA’s developmental agenda, he asserted, “NDA’s priority is the welfare of the small farmer. Our Government has initiated reforms that will free the small farmers from the pressures of middlemen. Measures such as Soil Health Card, Kisan Credit Cards, e-NAM scheme are aimed at empowering farmers.”

“Guided by the Mantra of Per Drop, More Crop, we are helping farmers transform their cultivation methods. Old irrigation structures are being repaired. New ones are being built. The Government of India has launched Jal Jeevan Mission. The aim is to provide water to all household,” he said while urging everyone to vote for the NDA in upcoming elections.

No citizen went hungry despite the biggest calamity of the century: PM

Let's take holy pledge to awaken new inspiration for nation building on Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav: PM

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi interacted with beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana in Gujarat today via video conferencing. A public participation programme was launched in the state to create further awareness about the scheme.

Addressing the event, the Prime Minister said that lakhs of families in Gujarat are getting free ration under PM Garib Kalyan Ann Yojana. This free rations reduces distress for the poor and gives them confidence. He said that the poor should feel that whatever might be the calamity, the country is with him.

The Prime Minister pointed out that after independence, almost every government talked about providing cheap food to the poor. The scope and budget of cheap ration schemes increased year after year, but the effect it should have had remained limited. The country's food stocks kept increasing, but starvation and malnutrition did not decrease in that proportion. One major reason for this was the lack of an effective delivery system. To change this situation work was started afresh after 2014. He said, using new technology, crores of fake beneficiaries were weeded out of the system and ration cards were linked to Aadhar cards. This helped in ensuring that no citizen went hungry despite the biggest calamity of the century when livelihood were threatened and business suffered due to lockdown. The world has acknowledged the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana. Free ration has been made available to more than 80 crore people during the pandemic with an expenditure of more than 2 lakh crore rupees, said the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister said today, in addition to the quota of wheat at Rs 2/kg, rice at Rs 3/kg, 5 kg of wheat and rice is being given free to every beneficiary. That is, almost double the amount of ration is being provided to the ration card holders than before this scheme started. This scheme is going to continue till Diwali. No poor will sleep hungry, said the Prime Minister. He praised the Gujarat government for taking care of the migrant labourers, fulfilling the purpose of One Nation One Ration Card Initiative.

The Prime Minister said today the country is spending lakhs of crores on infrastructure, but at the same time, to improve the quality of life of common human beings, it is also setting new benchmarks for Ease of Living. Empowerment of the poor is being given top priority today. They are being empowered as more than 2 crore poor families got houses, 10 crore families got toilets. Similarly, they get empowered when they get included in the banking system via Jan-Dhan account, said the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister said empowerment needs consistent hard work for ensuring health, education, facilities and dignity. Schemes like Ayushman Yojana, Reservations for Economically Weaker sections, roads, free gas and electricity connection, Mudra Yojna, Svanidhi Yojna are giving direction to dignified life for the poor and becoming a medium of empowerment.

The Prime Minister said there are many such works in the entire country including Gujarat, due to which the confidence of every countryman and every region is increasing today. And it is this self-confidence which is the formula to overcome every challenge, to achieve every dream.

Referring to India's Olympic contingent, the Prime Minister said despite the once-in-a-century calamity, the highest number of players qualified for Olympics. They just didn’t qualify but are giving tough fights to better ranked players.

The Prime Minister said the zeal, passion and spirit of Indian players is at the highest level today. He said this confidence comes when the right talent is identified and encouraged. This confidence comes when the systems change, become transparent. This new confidence is becoming the hallmark of New India.

The Prime Minister urged the people to continue this confidence in the fight against Corona and also in our vaccination campaign. He stressed on the need to maintain our vigilance continuously, in this environment of global pandemic.

He said that as the country is moving rapidly towards the vaccination milestone of 50 crore, Gujarat is also approaching the milestone of 3.5 crore vaccine doses. He stressed the need to vaccinate, wearing masks and avoid being a part of the crowd as much as possible.

The Prime Minister said gave a resolution to the countrymen to awaken new inspiration for nation building. He urged to take this holy vow during the 75 years of independence. In these resolutions, he said poor, rich, men and women, downtrodden, everyone has an equal share, he concluded.

It may be noted that nearly 948 Lakh Metric Tonnes of foodgrains was allocated last year which is 50% more than a normal year to ensure food security during COVID. About Rs. 2.84 Lakh crore food subsidy incurred during 2020-21.

More than 3.3 crore eligible beneficiaries in Gujarat got 25.5 Lakh Metric tonnes of foodgrain, incurring a subsidy amount of more than 5 thousand crore.

To further strengthen food security for migrant beneficiaries, One Nation One Ration Card implemented so far in 33 States/UTs.
