After several decades, it is the first time that Terrorism, Bandhs, stone pelting, border skirmishes are not the issues for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in the state of JandK
For a Viksit Bharat, a Viksit JandK is imminent. The NC, PDP and the Congress parties are dynastic parties who do not wish for the holistic development of JandK

Udhampur showered unparalleled affection on PM Modi as he addressed a public rally in JandK ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2024. He said, “After several decades, it is the first time that terrorism, bandhs, stone pelting, and border skirmishes are not the issues for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in the state of J&K.” He said, “Before 2014 even the Amarnath and Vaishno Devi Yatra was ridden with problems but post-2014, J&K has seen only increasing confidence and development.” He said that owing to the same, there is a great sentiment for a strong government and hence ‘Fir ek Baar Modi Sarkar.’

Speaking on the development of Jammu and Kashmir, PM Modi reiterated, “In the last 60 years, JandK saw constant underdevelopment, but in the last ten years, it has seen unprecedented development with the last-mile reach of developmental benefits to all.” He added, “For a Viksit Bharat, a Viksit Jammu and Kashmir is imminent.” Lamenting the dynastic parties like PDP, NC and Congress, PM Modi said, “The NC, PDP and the Congress parties are dynastic parties who do not wish for the holistic development of JandK.”

Elaborating on the historic abrogation of Article 370, PM Modi said, “The abrogation of Article 370 was a big and bold decision by our government that has opened the doors for the holistic development of Jammu and Kashmir.” He added, “Abrogation of Article 370 has enabled equal constitutional rights for all, record increase in tourism and establishment of IIM and IIT for quality educational prospects in the state.” PM Modi highlighted the importance of development for a state like J&K, saying, “Our government has aimed to eliminate corruption and foster the development of J&K.” He added that we aim to ensure record investments for Jammu and Kashmir.

Taking a dig at the opposition I.N.D.I alliance, PM Modi said, “The I.N.D.I alliance have disregarded the culture as well as the development of India, and a direct example of this is the opposition and boycott of the Pran-Pratishtha of Shri Ram.” He added, “The I.N.D.I alliance has cited the Pran-Pratishtha of Shri Ram as an issue for elections but they forget that this movement has been ongoing for over 500 years.” He remarked, “In the advent of continuing their politics of appeasement, the leaders of I.N.D.I alliance lived in big bungalows but forced Ram Lalla to live in a tent.”

Lamenting the I.N.D.I alliance appeasement politics, PM Modi said, “I.N.D.I alliance only indulges in appeasement politics disregarding India’s culture.” He added that the leaders of the I.N.D.I alliance have posted on social media eating Non-Veg especially during the holy month of Navratri. He added that such acts show that the I.N.D.I alliance does not care for the sentiments and values of the Indian people and simply indulge in divisive politics.

In conclusion, PM Modi said, “To enable robust development of J&K, we must collectively ensure that the dynastic parties are thoroughly defeated in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. He thanked the people of Udhampur for turning out in large numbers and expressed his confidence in the voters to ensure the BJP emerges victorious in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

PM Modi addresses public meetings in Shimla & Mandi, Himachal Pradesh
May 24, 2024
Weak Congress government used to plead around the world: PM Modi in Shimla, HP
Congress left the border areas of India to their fate: PM Modi in Shimla, HP
The Congress has not yet arrived in the 21st century: PM Modi in Mandi, HP
The entire Congress is vehemently anti-women: PM Modi in Mandi, HP
Congress is leading Himachal to ruin: PM Modi in Mandi, HP

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed vibrant public meetings in Shimla and Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, invoking nostalgia and a forward-looking vision for Himachal Pradesh. The Prime Minister emphasized his longstanding connection with the state and its people, reiterating his commitment to their development and well-being.

“When the country didn't even know Modi, I was among you. Times have changed, but Modi has not changed. Modi's relationship with Himachal remains the same,” PM Modi remarked.

Highlighting his continuous engagement with the state, PM Modi sought the people’s blessings for a third term of the BJP government. “Today, I have come to seek your blessings for the BJP government for the third time. I need your blessings to make India strong, to make India Viksit, and for a developed Himachal. Five phases of elections have already taken place in the country. A BJP-NDA government is assured. Now, Himachal will score a hat-trick with a 4-0 victory. Vote for those who will form the government. What is the point of wasting your vote? So, say with me, ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar.”

Addressing the strategic importance of Himachal Pradesh, a state bordering the frontier, PM Modi underscored the necessity of a robust government. “Himachal Pradesh is a state bordering the frontier. The people of Himachal understand the importance of a strong government. Modi will risk his life for you but will not let any harm come to you. The weak Congress government used to plead around the world. Modi says, why should India go to the world? India will fight its battles on its own.”

The Prime Minister also highlighted the infrastructural developments under his administration, contrasting them with the previous Congress regimes. “This is the same Congress that left the border areas of India to their fate. Modi has given many times more money than Congress. Today, hundreds of kilometers of new roads have been built along the border. Today, the lives of soldiers and our people living near the border have become easier.”

PM Modi highlighted the successful implementation of the One Rank One Pension scheme, a long-standing demand of military personnel fulfilled under his leadership. “Congress made military families yearn for One Rank One Pension for four decades. Congress used to say they would bring OROP by showing just 500 crores. This was a huge insult to our army because it was impossible to implement OROP with just 500 crores. It is Modi who has implemented OROP. Modi has given about 1.25 lakh crore rupees to former soldiers through OROP. That's why people say, Modi delivers what he guarantees.”

PM Modi also spoke about sensitive issues, accusing Congress and the INDI alliance of undermining the reservation system and conspiring against the Ram Temple. “I have come today to warn the people of Himachal about another conspiracy by Congress and the INDI alliance. These people want to completely abolish the reservation for SC-ST-OBC and give it to Muslims. Congress is also opposing the Ram temple. You people of Himachal tell me, did you feel good visiting Ram Lalla? But Congress cannot tolerate the Ram temple. Congress is conspiring to lock the Ram temple. Will you allow the Ram temple to be locked?”

Reaffirming his government's commitment to development, PM Modi listed the various initiatives taken for Himachal Pradesh, including the establishment of prestigious educational institutions and infrastructural projects. “No one thought that institutions like IIIT, IIM, and AIIMS could exist in Himachal. But with Modi, it is possible. Himachal has received a bulk drugs park and a medical device park. Himachal is among the first states in the country where the Vande Bharat train started.”

“Modi has guaranteed to make 3 crore sisters associated with self-help groups ‘Lakhpati Didis.’ Modi has also brought a big scheme to make your electricity bill zero. With the ‘PM Suryaghar Muft Bijli Yojana’ your bill will be zero, and you will also earn thousands of rupees. Just as Modi has fulfilled previous guarantees, Modi will fulfill these guarantees as well,” he added.

Addressing his second public meeting in Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, PM Modi spoke about the aspirations of the youth and the importance of women's empowerment. He stressed the need for inclusive development and equal opportunities for all citizens.

PM Modi denounced the Congress party's regressive policies and divisive politics, calling for support to build a prosperous and united India. He said, “The Congress has not yet arrived in the 21st century. While people progress, Congress moves in the opposite direction. It's heading back to the 20th century. The Congress royal family is staunchly against daughters. The entire Congress is vehemently anti-women. But for my family in Himachal, listen to me carefully, and educate your daughters well. The assurance of providing them with an open and safe environment and offering them new heights is from Modi.”

“I have opened the doors of military schools and defense academies for daughters. The doors that were once closed for daughters in the army have also been opened. The number of women in central forces has more than doubled in ten years. Whether fighter pilots or passenger aircraft pilots, the coming five years are going to be a soaring flight for daughters. This is Modi's Guarantee,” he added.

Speaking about Congress’ misrule in the state and how his government took initiatives to preserve the state’s heritage, PM Modi said, “Modi government has vigorously promoted this heritage. Himachal's, the country's pride and prosperity, require your every vote. Congress is leading Himachal to ruin. So, it is necessary to stop it. I need your support to remove Himachal from the clutches of Congress.”

While concluding his address, PM Modi called upon the people of Himachal Pradesh to reject the Congress party's outdated ideology and support the BJP in the upcoming elections. He urged voters to elect BJP candidates to ensure continued progress and development in the region.
