Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated iconic week celebrations of the Ministry of Finance today. This week is being celebrated as part of the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ (AKAM) from 6th to 11th June 2022. He also launched the National Portal for Credit Linked Government schemes - Jan Samarth Portal. He also inaugurated a Digital Exhibition which traces the journey of the two Ministries over the past eight years. The Prime Minister also released a special series of ₹1, ₹2, ₹5, ₹10 and ₹20 coins. These special series of coins will have the theme of the logo of AKAM and will also be easily identifiable to visually impaired persons.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said whoever took part in the long struggle for independence, added a different dimension to this movement, and augmented its energy. Some adopted the path of satyagraha, some chose the path of weapons, some faith and spirituality, and some intellectually helped to keep the flame of freedom burning bright, today is the day when we acknowledge all of them.

Today when we are celebrating 75 years of independence, the Prime Minister stressed, it is the duty of every countryman to make a special contribution to the development of the nation at their own level. This is a moment to infuse the dreams of our freedom fighters with new energy and dedicate ourselves to new pledges, he said.

The Prime Minister noted that India has also worked on different dimensions in the last eight years. The public participation that increased in the country during this period has given impetus to the development of the country and empowered the poorest of the country's citizens. The Prime Minister remarked that Swachh Bharat Abhiyan gave an opportunity to the poor to live with dignity. Facilities like pucca houses, electricity, gas, water and free treatment increased the dignity of the poor and improved facilities. The scheme of free rations during the Corona period freed more than 80 crore countrymen from the fear of hunger. “We are witnessing a new confidence among the citizens to come out of the mentality of deprivation and dream big”, he said.

The Prime Minister said the country has borne the brunt of government-centric governance in the past. But today 21st century India is moving ahead with the approach of people-centric governance. He said earlier it was the responsibility of the people to go to the government for availing benefit of the schemes. Now emphasis is on taking governance to people and free them from the rigamarole of doing rounds of different ministries and websites. Launch of National Portal for Credit Linked Government schemes - Jan Samarth Portal is a major step in this direction. This portal will improve the lives of students, farmers, businessmen, MSME entrepreneurs and will help them in realizing their dreams, he added.

The Prime Minister said that any reform, if its objectives and goals are clear and there is seriousness in its implementation then good results are assured. The Prime Minister emphasized that the youth of our country have been kept at the heart of the reforms the country has undertaken in the last eight years. This will help them to show their potential. “Our youth can easily open the company they want, they can start their enterprises easily, and they can run them easily. Therefore by reducing more than 30 thousand compliances, abolishing more than 1500 laws, and decriminalizing several provisions of the Companies Act, we have ensured that Indian companies not only move ahead but also achieve new heights”, he added.

The Prime Minister said that the in reforms Government is focused on simplification. GST has now replaced the web of many taxes at the centre and the state. The country is also seeing the result of this simplification. Now it has become normal for GST collection to cross one lakh crore rupees every month, he said. He said that the GeM portal has brought in new ease for procurement in government and made selling to the government very easy. Purchase figure for the portal has crossed 1 lakh crore, the Prime Minister informed. He also talked of portals that are bringing ease of doing business. He talked about Invest India Portal for information regarding investment opportunities, Single window clearance portal for business formalities. ‘In this series this Jan Samarth Portal is going to help the nation's youth and startup ecosystem’ the Prime Minister pointed out.

“Today when we move with the power of reform, simplification and ease, we attain a new level of convenience … We have shown in the last 8 years that if India collectively decides to do something then India becomes a new hope for the world. Today the world is looking at us not just as a big consumer market but looking at us with hope and confidence as a capable, game changing, creative, innovative ecosystem” , the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister said a large part of the world expects India to solve problems. This is possible because in the last 8 years we have trusted the wisdom of the common Indian. “We encouraged the public as intelligent participants in Growth. We have always found that whatever technology is deployed for good governance is not only adopted by people but also appreciated by them”, the Prime Minister said referring to the achievement of UPI.

Our commitment is clear: corrupt individuals will be investigated: PM Modi at Agra rally
While Modi focuses on uplifting the poor, the SP-Congress alliance is indulging in blatant appeasement: PM Modi
We are ending 'Tushtikaran' and working for 'Santushtikaran': PM Modi at election rally in UP's Agra
I went into the sea with great devotion, I went there to seek the blessings of Lord Shri Krishna but Congress 'Shehzada' made fun of it, says the PM
Addressing a public rally in Aonla, PM Modi says this election is an election to completely free the country from the mentality of 1000 years of slavery

In anticipation of the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered stirring addresses to massive crowds in Agra & Aonla in Uttar Pradesh. Amidst an outpouring of affection and respect, PM Modi unveiled a transparent vision for a Viksit Uttar Pradesh and a Viksit Bharat. The PM exposed the harsh realities of the Opposition’s trickery and their “loot system”.

Initiating his positively voluminous speech, PM Modi warned the audience that, “Some unnecessary force opposes India's growing power,” but at the same time the PM also assured that, “A defence corridor is being built here to manufacture deadly weapons for our army and for export. Arms brokers, who used to bribe Congress leaders, are furious. They don't want India's army to be Aatmanirbhar. They're united against Modi. We need the BJP-NDA government again to stop them.”

“While Modi focuses on uplifting the poor, the SP-Congress alliance is indulging in blatant appeasement. Congress's manifesto for the 2024 elections bears 100% imprint of the Muslim League, solely dedicated to strengthening their vote bank,” PM Modi remarked.

Addressing a crucial issue of the day, PM Modi shed light on the Opposition's deceitful tactics, remarking, “Congress, whether in Karnataka or Andhra Pradesh, has persistently pushed for religious-based reservation in its manifesto. Despite constitutional and judicial constraints, Congress is determined to pursue this agenda. Their strategy involves reallocating OBC quota to provide religious-based reservation, as seen in Karnataka where all Muslim castes were included in the OBC category by the Congress government.”

“In 2012, just before the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, the Congress government attempted to allocate a portion of OBC reservation to minorities based on religion but failed. Now, the people of UP, especially the OBC community, must recognize Congress and SP's dangerous game. They aim to take away the rights of OBC castes like Yadav, Kurmi, Maurya, Kushwaha, Jat-Gujjar, Rajbhar, Teli, and Pal, and give them to their preferred vote bank. The SP, for its own gains, is betraying the Yadavs and backward classes. This appeasement-driven mindset defines both the SP and Congress, who aim to surreptitiously redistribute OBC rights to their vote banks, before the arrival of Yogi ji, the slogan of the INDI Alliance here was – The land which is the government's, that land is ours,” the PM further added.

Launching his revolt against the Opposition parties, PM Modi observed that, “A new scheme by the Congress-INDI Alliance has emerged, and that is Congress Ki Loot…Jindagi Ke Sath Bhi, Jindagi Ke Baad Bhi! They claim they will investigate your belongings using the Congress prince's X-ray machine, seizing everything, including sisters' and daughters' jewellery, and distribute it among their vote banks. Not even the sisters' mangalsutras will be spared.”

With compelling facts and figures, PM Modi posed a critical question to the crowd: "The Congress-SP & INDI Alliance plans to impose a 55% tax on your inheritance. This means they'll seize a significant portion of what you leave for your children. If you built a 4-room house, only 2 rooms will go to your children, the rest seized by Congress-SP. Similarly, if you own 10 bighas of land, only 5 will be inherited by your children, the rest confiscated by Congress-SP. Are you ready to surrender your property to them?"

“Our commitment is clear: corrupt individuals will be investigated, and the money they've stolen from the poor will be returned to them. PM Modi is seeking legal advice on how to recover the looted money, including bungalows and vehicles seized from these corrupt individuals,” the PM established.

Also, PM Modi addressed the appalling paper leak incident in Rajasthan, highlighting its detrimental impact on the future of the nation's youth. He revealed that the Ashok Gehlot's government of the state played a significant role in the incident, placing the blame squarely on the Congress.

In his second rally in Aonla, PM Modi described the 2024 election as a choice to liberate the country entirely from the mentality of a thousand years of slavery. This election is about elevating India's pride to new heights.

In a blistering attack on Congress and SP, PM Modi stated, “Do you remember what the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Congress used to say ten years ago – ‘Mandir wahin banayenge, Tarikh nahi batayenge’. With your blessings, we built the temple, set a date, and even invited the SP and Congress. But they declined the invitation. Why? Because they feared upsetting their vote bank. They didn't abandon just Lord Ram, but also Lord Shyam. You know that our Lord Krishna's ancient city of Dwarka lies submerged beneath the sea. Some time ago, I went to visit Dwarka ji in the sea. But the scion of the Congress made a mockery of it too. And the family members of the SP, who claim to be from the Yadav dynasty, are now singing praises to those who ridiculed Lord Krishna.”

Emphasizing Modi's guarantee, PM Modi stated that the leaders of the INDI alliance are vying for votes to amend the Constitution and introduce reservation based on religio. “Today, I am pledging support to the OBC community of Uttar Pradesh, encompassing Yadavs, Kurmis, Maurya-Kushwahas, Jat-Gujjars, Rajbhar-Teli-Pal communities. I am committed to preventing the Samajwadi Party and Congress from depriving you of your reservation rights,” he said.

In the Aonla rally, PM Modi continued to criticize the opposition, whether it be the Congress or the Samajwadi Party, stating that they only think about their own families. He said, “For these people, their family is everything, and they do not care about anyone else. In Uttar Pradesh, the Samajwadi Party did not find a single Yadav outside their family to whom they could give a ticket. Whether it's Badaun, Mainpuri, Kannauj, Azamgarh, Firozabad, everywhere, tickets have been given only to members of the same family. Such people will always prioritize the welfare of their own family, and for them, anyone outside their family holds no significance.”

In his closing words, PM Modi humbly requested everyone in the crowd to spare a moment for their sevak and bless the BJP with a resounding victory. He also urged the crowd to visit each home, conveying his heartfelt gratitude and best wishes.
